Just sayin'... when my therapist saw my new look she asked me how many IQ points I lost going blonde. On the other hand, people in general seem to find me more approachable.

 

Honestly the only two opinions that matter are yours and Patti Anne's. Yours more than hers. Also, couples wig shopping is a hoot. 😋

 

Hugs!

Looking very good and this is from a girl who went through about 20 different colors until I hit my red color.Which I have lasted well with!!  https://www.transgenderpulse.com/forums/gallery/image/13339-my-neighborhood-2/   I say if you think you look fab with it (I think you do) then you own it and your overall feelings make it simply YOU.

Hey now, hate is a little strong. Just a personal preference. I prefer brunette's to blondes and redheads to breathing.

 

Hugs!

I think you look good as a blonde. Show us this same look with your everyday makeup on and I think almost everyone would agree that it’s a very nice look. I want to also mention...to me, it looks just slightly more natural too. Maybe that has more to do with the way it shapes your face.🙂

 

My Best,

Susan R🌷

Personally, I think the style and color strongly emphasize your eyes and forehead, giving a more youthful appearance. Can we see this blonde with makeup for the full picture?

Thank you all.  I wasn’t sure as my natural color is a chestnut brown and it looked so foreign to me at first.  Well chestnut brown in my youth. It’s now a crappy grey.  Lol

I do intend to do an everyday makeup and take another picture with natural light and I will post these too.  
Thank again!❤️❤️❤️

I got lucky. As a toddler I had dark brown almost black hair. By the time I got to high school it was a dark medium brown and over the years it continued to get lighter and lighter. By 67 I am blond. Nothing lout of a bottle except fo a blue strip on the left side. Funny thing is I never imagined myself as a blond. I like it.

@Shawnaleigh  How dare you dig and find my cut hair. but then again mine had a little more curl to it. LOL. plus I haven't been blonde since I was like 3. My natural color is light to medium brown.

However, Looking good sister. You must have gotten the looks in the family. LOL.

Shawna,

 

It's nice to see the new picture next to the profile picture.

 

The profile picture makes you look more mysterious and a little evil (in a good way).  You look like you've got a secret to share with us.

 

The blond hair makes your eyes pop big time and you look a little more innocent and open.  With the blond hair, I notice how beautiful your eyes are.  With the dark hair, your eyes are kind of the same color, so my focus goes to your smile.  The more I look at it, the more I love the new picture.  Even though it's a closed mouth smile, it looks relaxed.  It looks a little more like someone who wants to know what we think, someone who's eager for input and expecting it to be positive.

@ShawnaLeigh Looks really good. The style of wig is complimentary too.  Not everyone can pull it off. I’m with @Jackie C., I prefer the brunette look, but it’s just my preference. My wife is blonde, so it’s not a very firm preference.  Also as Jackie has said, it’s really only Patti’s and your opinion that matters. 
 

I’ve bleached my hair before, in my youth, I can’t work the blonde, so I’ll stay salt and pepper. Maybe at some point after coming out, I’ll try dyeing it, to hide the gray, but don’t want to draw any focus while i stay closeted. Hugs!

I resisted posting it for about a day, then this morning Shawna said something to the effect of 'I'm surprised you didn't post a response!' That was all it took! LOL!

Wow I am really surprised and happy with all the honest feedback.  I certainly like to comparisons to from my profile picture to this quickie pic I took.  I will be in full daily makeup tomorrow and will snap a pic for this thread to see if it still stands that I am now a blond.  LOL

Thank you all for the feedback.

      Nice to meet you @key plate! and welcome! You've found a great place to let this out.  We are all here facing both similar and different obstacles to transition, but all with the same hope ... to be happy. I cannot and should not give you advice about your mother.  You seem to know her well, since your are not surprised but rightfully disappointed by her response. I do hope you make the choices that are best for yourself (and not somebody else) but ... When its all said and done, she still is and will forever be your mother.  Don't let go of the love in your heart for her (it seems like she needs it)   Deep breaths ... one step at a time❤️
    • KayC
      Wow!  Thanks for sharing your photos and story @Joslynn!  That's quite a transition and very inspiring❣️
    • KayC
      That's great Jackie! Sending sincere prayers for a smooth procedure and recovery🙏  Thank you so much for all you do to share your journey with us❣️  
    • KayC
      People who are sincerely kind (without expectation of anything in return) are truly compassionate.  They are that way because they know deep down that we are all intimately inter-connected as part of this complex and eternal universe.   You figured it out, @Mary Jane.  You are enlightened❣️

      Good morning everyone,🐀   Happy birthday benzenemess!🎂 Hope you have a wonderful day!   Lots of love, Timber Wolf 🐾

      I meant "not aligned on the.. line" XD Can I ask how u did that?? OoO
    • Liam da potato
      I don't know how u did that but it's really impressive if your ok with comments I' say that the nose with mouth are not really on the vertical line that separates the head in 2, if you understand what I mean. (not my drawing) Mouth and nose are like that \ and eyes like that | But seriously that's really good!
    • Liam da potato
      nice ^^, how about Loic? Stephen? Mathew Michael argh I can't put my eyes away OO

      Bless you Sweetie. . .hang on 'til the sun comes back up!
    • Chrysalis
      I dressed someone else's feeling about that very same sort of thing. What i said then and strongly suggest now is that you find a gender therapist! Like alcohol counselors, it is most typically Gender Therapists are trans themselves and so have been through the early stages of doubt and confusion and come through with experience and the knowledge that provides.  Hope that offers you some hope and help?

      Thank you girls for all the really kind and hilarious comments, a few of those I laughed out loud so hard I think it shook the walls! I’m sure I’ll get through it just fine, I’ve already mixed up the jug of horribleness and have everything ready for tomorrow morning. Not my first rodeo so I’ll just “go with the flow”! Hugs to you all! Jackie

      THANK YOU @Susan R.  Yes it DOES❣️❤️❤️❤️
    • KayC
      Hi Charlotte!  Yes, I might say that, but I guess what I was really saying is .. .You can identify however you want (or not).  Its your life .. your identity .. and don't worry if it changes as you discover more of yourself.

      Thank you Kay 💕   Tw/cw: so much. Sexual harassment, alcoholism, drug mention, suicidal ideation... I'll keep anything triggering I mention brief and vague. I don't really want to talk about it anyway.    So I haven't been active here for almost two weeks. I just caught up with all the posts I missed. Didn't introduce or say anything helpful to anyone. I've been so stressed, busy, tired... Anyway, sorry.    Transition wise I've been great. I feel more like a woman than ever.    Life in general not so great. My last paycheck, despite working 2/3 full time, was pathetic. I think the state is finally collecting on all my traffic violations. I'm dead broke.    The past few months I was in a poly relationship with two trans gf's and a cis bf. I more or less broke up with all of them on the 4th of july. Gf #1 just used me for money and had no desire to be intimate with me so I ditched her in the middle of the day. Gf #2 ghosted me like a month ago enough said. The bf and I had a wonderful 4th of july, neighbors setting off fireworks and magic everywhere, one of the best 4ths ever. But then later that night he assaulted me for lighting a cig in the house (like jumped on me and ripped it out my hand). It was pretty terrifying. So anyway that's done. Me and him still live together as roomates. We made up and are being civil. But he still kinda scares me. I dunno.   Another roomate, a 60 yo man, came onto me. Grabbed my butt and boobs, said he wanted to have sex later. I froze and just let it happen (the grabbing, not the sex). Anyway, he hasn't brought it up since. But between him and the ex-bf, being home is just scary. A couple nights later I went out to a nearby bar bc it was sunday and I was shook up and wanted a drink. Right away another 60 yo chaser started hitting on me and tried to tempt me with crack and meth to come to his place and do dirty. I slammed my drinks, let him talk his talk and walked out.    Then just the other night on the train on my way home from work, some homeless guy crept up right next to me, whipped out his peni and started jerking it while staring me down. I got up quick and ran to the other end of the car, then ran to the next car at the next train station.    I've been spending most of the past few weeks crying and not sleeping, hoping I don't become a statistic. I feel like I aged 15 years in two weeks. And I'm drinking again. And no, I don't want to talk about that in some sort of intervention kinda way. If I ever do I know there's the section on alcohol and substance abuse. It's the only solace I want or need right now. At least it hasn't violated me like the government or men have.    Anyway, I'm polishing off some rum and seltzer, cuddling with my cat and chilling to some vaporwave, so life is tolerable in this moment. Here's to another day...    ~Toni
