There is a rumour going around that we gender dysphorics dress to relieve stress. Well I don't know about you but I didn't have much stress during my formative years.
Come to think of it, I don't think I have ever met anyone who started the practice as an adult for the sole purpose of relieving stress. What I can say is that by my late thirties, my dressing desires were becoming my primary source of stress.
The reason I went to therapy was so that they could repair me and make me normal. What ended up happening instead was that they helped me take my first tentative steps towards understanding that I suffered from dysphoria and my best solution was to accept myself as I am.
Do I enjoy my crossdressing today? Of course I do and it's part of who I am but it took from puberty to the age of 50 to get there. I don't think I've ever felt better about it.
However if by chance someone out there knows a recreational crossdresser tell them I want to meet them.
