I’ve found that since starting to dress how I like and look how I feel comfortable looking, if I wear anything that looks distinctly feminine, I feel all sorts of anxiety. I’m not sure if this is something that will last or if it’s because I’m still in the new-ish stages of expressing my identity (with the idea that in the beginning, you hold much tighter to the identity than once it’s become comfortable/old). Either way, in the meantime, I really only have a few items left that could be considered specifically feminine. I don’t want to put myself into a rigid box, but I also want to feel good about how I look. It’s a confusing line to walk.
I had my third date yesterday with C. I’m making dinner for her next week. It’s going very well, so naturally I’m waiting for the other shoe to drop.
I’m too sleepy to write more.
