Going forward. Will I be diagnosed?

So, yesterday I talked with my fiancee and confirmed that I considered transition. I will now be seeking a gender therapist. Now, I wonder if I'll actually get diagnosed. I do not suffer from dysphoria (or very mildly), am not girly or effeminate in any way. The only thing is that I would feel more at home in a female body. What do you guys think?

Thanks for the cheering. I'm kinda lucky that, if I go through this, I should not look too bad :P I'm already short and have rounder softer features.

For the 'knowing' or 'feeling it', it kinda came suddenly, about 5 years ago. I have been introspecting and hinting at it to some close ones since then, so my girlfriend already expected that...

Just what is it they take into consideration for the diagnosis?

To tell you the truth, I don't know. I've never read the entry about us in any edition of the DSM.
