Negotiating my divorce had me online more than usual. I started browsing BDSM sites, I can’t even explain why, through all the pain and turmoil, I started to look for a dominant.
I joined alt.com with no expectations. Much to my surprise, I acquired a fair share of emails, winks etc. I corresponded with a few and made some great friends but I also came across many who were not so…admirable. One even stalked me.
A couple of weeks later I received a wink from a MasterSailor, I winked back. He responded with a email but we kept missing each other, mainly because of the time difference, I was in Australia, he was in California.
Eventually we ended up chatting on MSN, I’m a notoriously bad typist, I chicken peck the keyboard, he, on the other hand, is smooth and incredibly fast. I look back now and smile at how patient he was with my responses. We chatted about normal things like favorite music, food and whatnot, then more BDSM related topics such as limits etc. We mirrored each other completely.
The first thing that struck me about him and urged me to get to know him more, was the way he made me laugh (and that continues to this very day).
I still remember the first time I heard his voice, it sent butterflies cascading through my entire body.
We went from using the phone to Skype, a more economical choice, on a daily basis. I didn’t have a webcam but he did.
When we first started talking he was unaware I had already planned to travel to America for my sport, Roller Derby. I was unaware that he had already visited Australia and planned to again. Finding out each others plan was perfect. He would meet me at the airport when I landed, we would travel together around America then he would fly back with me to Australia.
There were a few hurdles on the way but it happened, there he was at LAX with open arms. I was dressed as per his instructions and he will tell you that when we first kissed, I almost took his head off.
We haven’t been apart since.
