I do not believe this thread was done before, if so please forgive me, but I promise I will make this one a better than the last of this topic.
So my question is to everyone here....do you consider your dl, and/or tb/ab side to be just a hobby you enjoy partaking in, or an actual lifestyle that you consider a part of your personality?
I will answer for myself and maybe it will help you elaborate on your response if your having trouble deciding. I consider it a lifestyle for me, for many reasons.
1.) For as long as I can remember (about 2 and a half) I always wanted diapers to wear and always had a fascination with them on me and on girls.
2.) If I go without wearing diapers and/or regressing for more than a couple days I start to get depressed and become not very functional to do the things I need to do like college, work, and socializing.
3.) Even when I do stop wearing and regressing, I will think about it either on me or on someone else or both, at least a few times through out the day.
So with those reasons I consider it to be a lifestyle for me. It is something that I not only enjoy doing, but it takes up a good part of my time (but not too much for it to be harmful), and it has been always with me and still is in my brain even when I am not acting out on it. Therefore I see it as a part of my personality, it is part of who I am.
So now with my anwer hopefully that will help you decide if you have not decided already. If it is something you do occasionally and you can go without doing it AND without thinking about it for as long as you want then it is a hobby.
