Age is a popular topic around here and I’m occasionally asked…
“Am I too old to crossdress?” or “Am I too old to transition as a transgender woman?”
NO, of course not!
Whether you are a so-called mature crossdresser – or an older MTF woman beginning her transition – it is NEVER too late to be your true female self.
I believe that the true desires or your heart are meant to be expressed – no matter how long they’ve been buried.
Is it true that your age may have an impact on hormone therapy or surgery? Yes, that’s possible. But a good doctor will guide you on your best and safest options.
The fact remains that you can transition and/or present yourself as a woman at any point in life.
In fact, embracing your feminine side can give you a whole new lease on life…
I see it all the time: People seem to grow years younger when they make the decision to be themselves fully.
Having the courage to express your true self also inspires others to do the same. The world needs more of this!
In the words of Laverne Cox:
“It is revolutionary for any trans person to choose to be seen and visible in a world that tells us we should not exist.”
I’ll say it again: You are NEVER too old to be your true female self.
So, I encourage you to take that next step and do whatever it is that you’ve been holding back on.
You deserve it. And it’s not too late!
Do you agree that age is just a number?
Now I’d love to hear from YOU on this topic…
How old were you when you decided to fully embrace your female self? (Or are you still waiting?)
Let’s continue the conversation in the comments below!

I agree with you. You are never too old! I have enjoyed dressing since I was a boy. That was many decades ago! When I was younger there was no encouragement or help like your wonderful site for “embracing” your female self. I had to learn in secret how to become the woman within! Thank you again for your wonderful site.
Have fun dressing,
I said in my earlier post “we are never too old ” to enjoy the thrill and happiness of embracing our “female self”. BUT, I have decided to go for a wee-bit younger look for the rest of 2023′. I guess you could say re-inventing my style and look. What do you think? I welcome any suggestions.
Be happy and go out!
Wow, you have a great style Jane!
I don’t remember ever being old before in my life. So I realized that I just don’t know how to be old. But that’s OK, I can live without it. 🙂
I am in my 50s and over the past few years i have been able to reveal my crossdressing, submissive, homosexual past to my wife including time i spent in the navy while we were dating. we love each other very much and i think she was disappointed i wasn’t sexually attracted to her but it helped her when she realized i have always been sexually attracted to men and always been in love with her as my wife and partner. It is a bit odd. My wife has enjoyed strategically outing me to select people and i also enjoy them knowing me as a feminized submissive sissy.
I’m 52 and finally told my wife my desire to be a woman. She was so excited! Now I’m free to be the woman I’ve always known I’ve been.
Yo tengo 66 años, recibo terapia de una psicóloga y en las sesiones ella me ha recomendado salir del closet, que tengo derecho a ser feliz, ya he soportado muchos años este sufrimiento de no poder ser lo que uno quiere por miedo a la sociedad y a la familia.
Le he comentado que tengo unas ganas inmensas de acostarme con un hombre que me trate como a una mujer, ella me ha dicho que lo haga, que lo pruebe, si no me gusta lo dejo, si me gustara pues seguiría con ello.
Yo le dije que mi esposa sabe lo mío y no se como reaccionaria si me acuesto con un hombre, mi doctora me dice que si quiero saber como reaccionaria mi esposa, tendría que hacerlo y decir celo, que se entere y esperar lo peor o lo mejor pero debo enfrentarlo, ya debo dejar de ser cobarde, ya debo ser toda una mujer, le he cumplido a mi esposa, a mi familia y a mis hijos y es tiempo de ser feliz. Creo que seguiré sus consejos
I’m 73 and first dressed at age 5 wearing a neighbor girl’s dress. Got caught. Terror of my father stopped me doing it again. Regardless everyday I daydreamed of being a girl and prayed to wake up as a girl. Became a withdrawn and sad little “boy”. I hated the male world. At 13 I had opportunity to dress several times a week. My mother was an elegant beautiful woman and had gorgeous clothes that fit me perfectly. I was physically thin and willowy and made a very pretty girl. After graduation my feminine life disappeared. Guilty about my feelings I tried to suppress them with drugs alcohol and hyper masculine behavior. To no effect. Finally at age 44 my fake male life exploded and suicide was my solution. Fortunately I survived and with help came to accept who I am. A woman with a physical birth defect. Living openly as a transitioned woman has not been possible due to economics and the toll testosterone has taken to hyper masculinize my body. My point is if you see yourself in my story, if at all possible start today to transition. If you are in your teens, do it, do it, do it. Had I understood my situation in my teens and done something about it, by now I would have lived a whole life as the woman I was meant to be and would not have missed all the beautiful experiences that most women take for granted. As it is I live full time as a woman out of public view. Fortunately I have a lover who loves me for the woman I am. No matter your age embrace the woman you are. Being a woman is a wonderful gift.
Wow! I swear I am reading my own exact story here. I even tore some muscles in the gym trying to be hyper masculine as you said. My fake life has been a constant explosion and now at 34 I feel a reason to wake up and take care of myself for a change. I am at the very beginning of my journey and still fear being forever shut out of my parents lives but I can’t continue to let that stop me and be miserable! For once I actually want to be alive!
The comparison image kind of says it all.
