Ok, so to some extent we've all been there so I'm going to skip the part that most of us have been through. Regardless to where you are in transition, we will reach the point in a relationship where the couple is no longer simply defined as "gay" "lesbian" or "straight"...
Much to my suprise and joy my on-again-off-again turned on a few weeks ago.
We've agreed that every time we get back together we are differant people than we were before. So far, so good.
Except now, I don't know where to begin the process of explaining that I need to feel more like a man. She's always been respectful of my masculinity but on the other hand all things heterosexual scare her some. This is a fear that I understand and want to continue to respect.
So again I ask my brothers and sisters where in the world do I begin? As always thoughts and advice to any degree are appreciated.

Hi, Transdyke. How are things with you and your friend? I didn't have any advice for you at the time but now that some time has elapsed maybe you have discovered some things. I would love to hear about them.
