Curiosity killed the cat? *EDITED* Ah, hello! This is a bit awkward for me.... I'm 19 years old and I have been interested in BDSM for a few years now, but being socially awkward and painfully shy have never before now managed the courage to actually look into finding out more about it. So....this is a big step for me. I was interested in possibly connecting with an online mistress who can help teach me more about the lifestyle, and perhaps ease me into it. Though I don't just want a ..."professional" relationship I guess you could say, but I'd like a friend who understands that I am naturally skittish and a very shy person and that by doing this I am struggling to battle a lot of inner fears and concerns. I am requesting to be contacted by only females - it's a personal matter in which I just simply don't...err...trust males as much as I do females. The above italicized statement no longer applies!
