Well, I have been an ab/dl since as long as I can remember. Almost 10 years ago... wow I didnt realize how long its been, I discovered I was not alone via the internet. I am now in my early 20's and just found this website. I really liked browsing the forums and the conversation but had no idea this place existed. The admin and users should advertise a little for the site haha. Anyways I have had many different experiences relating to this, including being caught when I was younger by my parents all the way to telling my girlfriend about my interests as well. I hope to share some wisdom that I have learned with some of the people struggling with this issue, as well as learn a lot from the more experienced people.
