Over the past decade I had only really three opportunities tt meet and perhaps interact in a positive way with sisters I knew were cross dressers.
- The "matron" in the mall. I saw this person walking below me as I was standing on the "mezzanine" (2nd floor) of this mall I was in,. At first glance, she was a tall matronly dressed older woman-until she passed me by and I saw the back of her head. The whole back of her very male neck was exposed by an extreme ill fitting wig. I tried to get down an escalator to make eye contact and even say something. I never saw her again as obviously she was moving at a very "un-matronly" speed. I just wanted to re-arrange her wig!
The "grunge girl" in the mall. I don't even know if "grunge" is the proper style description. I have added a non cross dresser picture to show you what I'm talking about. (left) At any rate, this younger CD was tantalizingly close to pulling off the look. But- She was having a real difficult time with walking in the boots and I thought was making novice cross dressing mistakes such as wearing every bit of her outfit too tight. I made no attempt to say anything and just followed along at a safe distance and watched how everyone else viewed her. Truthfully , she took the "pressure" off of me.
- "The lady in white" in Friday's. If you don't know, "Friday's" is a restaurant/bar chain in the United States. Years ago, I was a regular in a couple nearby units and they always treated me with respect. One night I was at the bar and noticed a tall well dressed woman come into the bar area, order a glass of wine and go sit down behind me somewhere. I was 99% sure she was a cross dresser because she wasn't fluid like a woman, dressed too perfect and scared to death. I sat there for a bit giving myself a chance to gather up the courage to say hello. I waited too long though and when I did look for her a short time later, she had downed her wine and bolted out of there. For months I looked for her, but never saw her again.
Well kids, there have been other times and other places where my "Trans-dar" was going crazy, but not for a long time. I don't know I have a reason why. Perhaps the "luck of the draw" or I'm off in my own little world. I have an amusement park there!
