I've decided it's time to get out from under the rock I've been living under, get myself out there and start meeting people. I won't be able to explore what I want from the lifestyle if I stay hidden behind a computer screen.
I've recently been chatting with two new people through Fetlife, one is a Dom, one wants to explore his submissive side. Which raises the question of why is it that I seem to attract those that 'think' they want to be submissive? Why can't I find someone that KNOWS he's submissive and wants to spend time with me? I suppose I'll have to ponder that for a bit.
After a few days of chatting with these guys they have each expressed in meeting in person. Now normally this would cause me to pull in the troops and make a hasty retreat but I've decided that is getting me nowhere, fast. Certainly being careful and safe is the key here but from this point forward I will be more receptive to meeting in person sooner rather than later.
Wish me luck and I'll keep you all posted!!
