MIRROR: Download from MEGA I have met a sub on an alternative dating site and are close to moving into meeting. I want to be prepared for training her if everything does proceed as hoped. Our D/s preferences seem to match and the intention is to have a long term "modified" 24/7. This will be my first time training a 24/7, and the first time I have not had a prior vanilla relationship before moving to D/s. One question I have is, and I've pondered this since I first became a Dom, how much reward should there be during training? I like structured military-esque style training periods, and believe in the "break down then build up" concept, so I don't want to be too lavish during training. But I do want her to trust me, that when she performs to my expectations, she will be rewarded. I'm not sure how to attain that balance. Another one I have is about trust. Since we don't know each other that well, I don't know how to instill that required trust to place your body and will in another's hands without time. Like I said, previously, there had already been a level of trust accumulated, but we both want to start this relationship off in submission. Thanks for reading, and I will appreciate any wisdom you guys throw my way.
