As regards changing my life or any influence,, far far from it. What I do like about here is that people can ask, talk about anything and many brilliant people here willing to offer advice or words of encouragement, etc, which i think is fantastic and great to see a good sense of community here.
Would I be friends with a tranny? yes, I have a lot of friends who tv's and transgendered and was in 2 relationships with trans girls.
Finally, Many congratulations to Chris on your engagement, I wish you and your other half the very very best.
