The system is telling me to introduce myself (which I was planning to do anyway), so I guess it's time I better had! Forum introductions of any kind are quite a new thing to me, as most online communities I've been in up to now frown upon them, believing the proof of the pudding to be the eating- and let newbies make a name for themselves on posts in real threads, believing introduction threads to be devoid of content; but I guess this way works also- particularly for a strong community-based site.
First off, I'm a UK university student and a Diaper Lover. I'm predominantly hetrosexual in orientation, and view my DL as a fetish as opposed to a lifestyle. However I am so deeply in the closet about this all that this is the first time I've even posted on the Internet about it, being a long-time lurker of ADBL sites for the past five or so years. I'd say I've been a DL all my life, however, starting with just fantasies and thoughts in my head as I went to bed from around the age of 8 years old. For some reason, I am far more interested in plastic diapers than cloth ones (perhaps its the crinkles) and whilst not an AB, I do enjoy the concept of baby items (such as pacifiers, onsies etc.) being used in a more bondage-like adult situation.
Up to now, with the exception of my babyhood, I have never actually worn a diaper- mainly due to the fact that I have never had enough privacy to buy or use one at home (I'm incredibly likely to be recognised by people at the local shops within walking distance- and am unlikely to be able to take the car out without my younger brother wanting to tag along)- and have not found anywhere that sells suitable diapers near my university. In the new term after the summer, having a more private room to myself (most importantly with en suite facilities!) I intend to buy some off the Internet to try them out- I just hope I'm not disappointed (being a fetishist, often the thought and build up of things tends to hold more weight than the actuality!)
The two reasons I decided to join this site were that the wiki is excellent (even if it only has a few article at the moment- the quality is brilliant and the content informative), and the posts, rules and predominant atmosphere felt rather intelligent- the article on how to spot and deal with fake posts particularly made me chuckle.
As for other interests, I'm torn between two conflicting thoughts of "if I give away too much I'll be identifiable" and "if anyone's reading this, they're probably into diapers also, making that a good thing." So, without giving away too much- I'm into music, both listening and creating- enjoying predominantly heavy metal, blues and classical. I also enjoy programming (particularly making indie games, but am mercenary enough to do web-based stuff for money). I tend to relax by reading sci-fi and fantasy, and although I have tried my hand at penning a few stories in the past, I've not written anything for ages.
Having never done an intro before, I'm not really sure how to wrap up this post- but if anyone has any other questions about me, either on the stuff I've said so far, or anything else really, I don't mind answering, as long as it isn't too specific.
