I’ve fallen for another cross-dresser – does this mean I’m gay?

DEAR DEIDRE: I ALWAYS hoped I would find a woman to accept me and my desire to cross-dress.

But now I’m having feelings for another cross-dresser.

Do my feelings for him mean I’m gay?

Do my feelings for him mean I’m gay?

I’m 45 and have been single for nine years.

My ex and I split when she learned I liked to wear women’s clothes at home. She called it “disturbing”.

But over the past year, my confidence to dress as a woman in public has grown, thanks to really supportive colleagues.

They also encouraged me to start dating again.

Recently, I got talking to a lovely guy on a cross-dressing forum.
