I got together with Cecile and Ghislaine for a work break on a local terrace and it was lovely. They are both quite a bit older than me but they have a wisdom and a relaxed air about them as might be expected of women living life on their own terms without the stress of work. Both were met on my morning walks.
We agreed to do this again infrequently which somewhat makes up for Louise moving away which will do my psyche good. Again, neither knows I am trans which suits me more than fine as explaining my history is not something that would not add any value to the casual nature of the relationship. We are just friends who will enjoy each other's company from time to time.
Louise is only 2 years older and we were on the same wavelength but this will be a nice addition to my social circle nonetheless.
