Hello, I'm new to the site and have had one short relationship experience with BDSM that lasted about 3 months. The man identified as a Dom but turned out to be a sadist and was mentally and physically abusive.
After that I met a man who was not into the lifestyle and we were together for 7 years, I ended it this summer due to finding out he had been cheating on me. Not looking for pity or sympathy, just stating a fact.
I'm not looking for a relationship at this time but am open to learning more about the lifestyle and making friends/connections.
