Hi Brooklyn, that’s so exciting! I’m delighted for you.
I’m sure he won’t mind me saying. With anyone you meet online just try to take things slowly, it’s so easy to get caught up in the rush of it all and get dumb. Give them time to prove they are genuine and competent. It’s so easy online to create them in your head as some vision of dom perfection, but what you really want to find is a genuine human connection with someone, which you can build kinky stuff on top of.
Have a look at my rewrite of the classic BDSM Acid Test for some great, practical advice on all this. http://edging.space/post/139119347359/hi-james-you-had-a-question-not-to-long-ago-about
But beyond all that, well done, so pleased for you! Have fun!
