There is another Louise I know who I met on my morning walks and we sort of hit it off. After seeing each other sporadically on the path over a few months we decided to have coffee on a couple of occasions and so far it's been fun.Louise, who is 2 years my senior, doesn't know I am trans but she fits into that category of person who I don't feel compelled to tell. If she's figured it out that's great but if she doesn't that works just as well. I know from the discussions that she has not.
Being in that situation used to concern me but it no longer does because I don't give it much weight. I am just being myself and the gender expression part of it need not be so important. We are both comfortable and that is all that counts.
