A little background: I've been a member 11 years and a mod about 9. Some issues in real life and on the site made me back off of posting here, and in the last year as my dad needed more care (dementia), I was rarely even on the site.I met my Dominant here 10 years ago through the chat room. We hit it off almost immediately, and built a long-distance relationship. That's often not successful for D/s relationships, but in our case it has been good. In person would have been better, but because of His skill in many areas, it has worked. We started with chatting online and went to phone calls and some videos in chat. We have done lots of play, with Him supervising enemas and orgasms--including being able to trigger one with just a word--along with occasional punishments. And He was a steady force in my life as I dealt with an abusive husband who blindsided me with a divorce and restarting my life and healing. In fact, if not for Him, I probably wouldn't still be around. I still have a ways to go in some areas, but I've made great progress, and a deep friendship developed. We usually talk several times a day and share tons of vanilla interests.We wanted to get together and discussed it regularly. But He was caring for his mom, and I became more involved in helping my mom care for my dad, so meeting wasn't possible. As both family situations got worse, D/s got set aside. He still gave me instructions and made sure I was staying out of trouble (those of you who know me: QUIT LAUGHING), and we did enemas, but we quit playing.Along came the pandemic. Among the many things it messed up was His going on a cruise. Twice. So when the second one was cancelled this spring, I said, “Why don't You come here?”He did!We had about 10 days together, and it was incredible (except for having to say goodbye). There is so much to tell, and I'll break it into separate posts. Won't surprise me if He weighs in occasionally too.
