Default How long does it take for you to get ready to get out of the house?

I know people are going to say "how is this different than other threads you've made", but I've been curious to ask this and I haven't gotten around to it. I want to see how other MTF posters live and their experiences and mentalities, get to understand people better, all that good stuff.

Personally, it takes me at least an hour to get out of the house if I'm going somewhere I need to look presentable. Usually, I'd say it takes 1.5 hours on average, it depends. I need to brush the teeth, shower, wash my hair, pick out the clothes, put them in the drier to take out some of the wrinkles, then steam the clothes, my shoes if they are dirty need to be cleaned, deodorizer and some AXE body spray are required, and I have to adjust my face (yes, you have to adjust the face, the nose, the eyebrows, the lips have to look right, everything needs to come together, I get extremely finicky about that). And I hate putting on my clothes until right before I go out, so they have a fresh and non-worn look.

How long does it take other MTF peeps to get ready to go out wherever you're heading? Do you just get up and go, or do you make sure every detail of yourself is perfect before leaving the house?

Another thing I don't do is eat before I go out. I never eat before going out. If I'm going to go out, I either just don't eat anything, or if it's late, I'll have dinner in the afternoon and then not eat. Because eating and then going out, first of all you're body is still digesting the food, but also you don't have the same tightness or freshness in your face. I drink water instead.

Anyone else notice that and do they have the same habit?

Depends. Going out in general 5 minutes. Going somewhere special maybe 45 minutes.

's right. We have to also throw into the mix. But I do not think it is currently the decisive factor. But he has achieved in my opinion too much. Maybe this is crucial if I move him even closer after major victories. But 14 or 17 Grand Slam titles is a significant difference. At the present time there is no question that he must be the greater player than me.

right after waking up, about 45 min. 30' if i'm in a hurry.

if we're talking about going out of the house in the middle of the way (meaning i already had a shower), then probly around 5 minutes. 10 minutes if i need to change some of my clothes.

I look maaaahvelous at all times, so there is no need to do anything other than step outside at any time and accept the compliments that inevitably are thrown at me.

Every time I get on the down elevator I can sense people edging away to get a better all-over view and I hear the whispers, "Would you just look at that!"

Well in the morning I usually just wake up, put my shoes on and go wherever I need to go, it only takes like a minute, I just sleep in normal clothes so it's not bad.

Besides that it's like 10 minutes at most for sure.

what the hell is "adjust the face", could you kindly elaborate?

In the morning I need 1.5h at leisure, 1h if on a speed emergency. Im very slow in the morning and can't leave the house without having breakfast, shitting, washing, etc.

Yes... plus in your case a farting colon full of feces wouldn't be conductive to a successful culmination of the night out, I gather.

I'm a heterosexual. I need 20 minutes to get ready. I'd prefer to have 25 just to preen a bit, but I can do it in 20.

Adjusting the face:

1) Face exercises. 5-10 minutes of stretching your face in an O shape, and then pursing your lips together. Do that, you'll have a thin, tight face, with sharper features.

2) Shaping the nose. I always have to pick and prod the nose, so it's in the right position and looks good. That may sound ridiculous, but what needs to be remembered that outside of the bridge, the nose can be adjusted, the nostrils, the tip, these are muscles. I changed the shape of my nose by adjusting it the way I want.

3) Eyebrows. They have to be perfect, I hate any loose hairs, I'm very meticulous about them, it can take me 30 minutes to do them. My eyes too, I want them to look fresh and healthy, and to do that, I sleep long and try to relax them.

4) Lips. Gotta put on the right lip balm so my lips look healthy, and there is no chapping. Some things work for me, and some don't. The face exercises help the lips look bigger, I've had people say my lips look bigger than before, which is a good thing, but it can be taken too far.

Then cosmetic stuff like face product, facial lotion, hair product.

If I went to all that trouble then I'd probably just stay at home and jerk off into the mirror.
