Super Tuesday

I loved Super Tuesday! It’s not that I am all wrapped up in this year’s elections, however, I was very appreciative that last night had nothing else on television but election coverage. Why? Because we were both home and decided to turn off the TV and take the opportunity to talk to each other. That’s a dangerous idea I know. But sometimes you have to do it. And last night turned out to be very good.

Linda and I haven’t spent much time talking about our newly chosen female-led lifestyle. We have just been going along letting things take their course, not checking on where the other of us is at or what we have liked or disliked about our choices. So last night was sort of a ‘check up’ for us.

Fortunately, we are both happy with most of what has been occurring. We like my role as housewife where I have taken the responsibility of keeping the house clean, doing the laundry and ironing, and preparing the meals. I told Linda the June Cleaver is my role model. Linda appreciates all of the work I have done and doesn’t mind that I am dressing up in my feminine clothing more around the house. She said that she has come to expect me to be in feminine garb when she gets home. I use to make sure that I left time to change before she got home, but now if I change it is into a nicer ‘wifey’ outfit.

She said that she has become comfortable enough with me in the wife role that she is not afraid to let others know that it is my preferred appearance. I asked her if she had told others about my dressing and our lifestyle change. She admitted that she keeps Anna abreast of my progress but hasn’t told others… yet. She did say that if as others start to discover our changes that she feels that she will probably not hesitate to explain what is going on. I asked her if that included family and she said that her sister has let on that she might know more than we think, and that her mother seems to be picking up signals and accepting this (ie: her mother giving ME aprons). Linda hasn’t come out and told them yet, but it appears to be just a matter of time before she does. And she said that she thought my mother and sister would understand if they knew. I guess I won’t be surprised if at our next family gathering I end up being the center of attention.

I am not sure how I will feel when our friends find out as we do several activities together as couples: card playing, golf, weekend get-aways. I worry most about what my male buddies will say. I don’t take on a ‘guy mentality’ as much when we are together now as I use to. But I am not sure how I will feel when they start seeing me as the sissy I am becoming.

Have you had to deal with this? Who told your friends and family and what was said? Have others seen you ‘in action’ being submissive to your wife or girlfriend? What was the reaction?

I know that it is just a matter of time before I will be facing this situation. I hope I am ready for it.

i think letting your male friends know is the most humiliating thing, and probably in a bad way. i haven't had to deal with this, thankfully, and it would be a big blow to me seeing that i am one of the Alphas in my group of buddies.

That being said, remember also what i have said about the humbling feeling it is to be "outed" by your Wife to one of your male friends. The feeling must be extremely intense, but it also stirs up erotic thoughts of cuckoldry and further subservience. It is just up to you on how far you want to go with this.

I agree. I really don't mind too much if Linda feels she needs to talk to her girlfriends about our lifestyle. However, I am uncomfortable about my male friends knowing, especially how they find out. I think it would be worse if Linda were to tell them that I am now the wife in our relationship as it might lead some of the men to think that they could make moves on her without me being able to stop it.
