I'm Nico and new to this website and I am suprised I never found it before. Perhaps I did, but never really got to registering. Anyway, I am a relaxed and open-minded person. I have had my drawbacks in the past, but am generally very cheerful and have a positive look on life. I try to laugh a lot because it helps me stay positive, but I can be very serious as well when needed. When I get to know people well, I can sometimes resort to sarcasm which is not always appreciated, but I never mean any harm and care a lot about the people around me. Life has taught me that it is good when small things make you happy and for me it certainly does. As for my occupation, I work as a researcher and I am particularly interested in the psychology.
There is a good reason I joined this forum. Not too long ago I started to embrace who I am and what I like and rather than keeping it all to myself I started to venture outwards (well... online) and look around for like-minded people. This is largely diaper-related and I am so very happy that I have accepted that part of me and I am starting to search for new experiences to see what I like and don't like. I know I kind of had these feelings since I was young, but it took a long time to accept it but now I do! I always thought I was DL and I wear diapers "for fun" 1-3 times a week, but I am getting increasing curious about AB and even being a carer sounds like a lot of fun. Being able to talk to people with similar thoughts and ideas is a very nice thing (I finally managed to pick up the courage to register at diaperspace.com, only a month before it went down and I hope it'll be back up soon). On diaperspace I started writing some blogs about the psychology of AB/DL and my own thoughts on fetishes and my personal history etc. and I hope I can continue this here.
As for the rest of me; I am a little bit geeky, but I think that in these times being "geeky" no longer has a negative affiliation attached to it. I like the occasional video game, preferably RPGs. I love reading and my reading-interests go from reading about the brain to other scientific and historical topics, but to be fair, I like reading a good novel or fantasy book just as much. As an unwritten rule, I allow myself into bookshops only rarely, because if I go in one, I will buy books... which is good for me, but not for my wallet. But I don't just spend time inside, going out into nature is another one of my passions; I enjoy hiking, I enjoy being in nature and the feeling of freedom that comes with it and enjoy camping. Recently I got interested in photography and mainly focus on nature -particularly animal- photography at the moment. I really enjoy cycling and I cycle to work almost every day, love going into the hills and I am currently spending a lot of afternoons watching or listening to the Tour de France. It is difficult to get an idea of someone in such a small bit of writing but I think this described me quite well.
A couple of things struck me immediately about this website and made me join up. I am really looking forward to being a member of an online community where I can chat and discuss topics related to AB/DL, where there are like-minded people with similar feelings and because I am relatively new to it I am looking forward to share experiences, ideas and thoughts on a number of levels. But is much more than that because it is not just about the diapers and I am really looking forward to simply talking "stuff" with everyone here. Another very important aspect is the fact that this forums seems to find proper language, proper post-building and proper communication very important, which is something that is lacking in a lot of other online places. Despite English not being my mother tongue (but due to moving I speak it most of the time), proper use of the English language is important to me, whether it is grammar or spelling... it doesn't take much time to make a small effort to use proper language and it makes it so much easier to read. I think that emphasising proper communication on a forum makes it all a lot easier and interesting for everyone and I am looking forward in engaging with people here!
I realised my introduction got a bit lenghty there, so I'll stop here. Feel free to reply or message me with questions etc
