DEAR DEIDRE: ALL I’ve ever wanted is a woman who will accept my cross-dressing and won’t steal my whisky.
Is that too much to ask? I’m a 35-year-old Scot who happens to enjoy wearing women’s clothes once in a while.

Now I’m ready to settle down and want to find a partner.
But previous girlfriends have always gone cold on me when they’ve discovered I get a thrill out of putting on a dress, wig, full make-up and heels.
A couple laughed about it with their mates, which hurt.
I don’t do it often – just when I feel the urge. It’s part of me and doesn’t stop me being a normal bloke who plays football.
I’ve decided that if I’m going to meet someone I want to spend the rest of my life with, I need to be upfront about it.
Where can I find a woman who will love me for all of me and who I can trust? I have so much love to give.
It’s also important that she doesn’t help herself to my favourite tipple – like my last girlfriend did.

DEIDRE'S NEW PHOTO CASEBOOK
Bruce agrees to get engaged to Kerry despite bedding Abbie
DEIDRE SAYS: It was cruel of your ex-girlfriends to laugh behind your back.
But they probably did it because they were shocked and didn’t understand.
Being upfront about it is a good idea. But cross-dressing doesn’t define you, it’s just a part of you.
The right woman will love you and accept your desire to cross-dress, just as she might accept that you support a different football team or have different tastes in music.
Developing a friendship is the way to make a lasting relationship.
You will be able to find some support by contacting The Beaumont Society.
See beaumontsociety.org.uk or call the information line on 01582 412220.
My support pack, Worried About Cross-Dressing, should also help.
