Hi! I've been browsing (or lurking, really) these forums, but I finally decided to join recently. I'm pretty shy, but I'd really like to make new friends. Please treat me kindly, I look forward to getting to know everyone!
What Brought Me Here
Let's see... I've had an interest in diapers and other child-like things since childhood - I remember being fascinated with nurseries, for example - but I failed to address it because it was all very confusing. I've only started exploring my interests in the past six months or so, but it's been a whirlwind since then. I've told one of my two partners about it, and he was very accepting about it. He's bought me some basic baby paraphernalia and we've done quite a few scenes with me in an age-regressed/baby state.
Because I'm so new to this, I'm using these forums for two main reasons, I think:
- Primarily: to discover more about my ab/dl interests. I have a lot of questions, for example, how do you decide/realize the age of your inner AB? etc.
- Also: to make new friends and talk to them not only about support issues but other, unrelated real-life stuff as well.
I have a /lot/ of interests, to be honest with you!
I love to cook and bake - that's actually where my username came from. I agonized for a username for days before I decided on "IronRoyal" - that's "iron" as in cast iron, my favorite cooking pan, and "royal" is actually short for Royal M or Mita, the company that produced my favorite fine china set that I use here at home. I make all kinds of things, but I'd have to say my signature dish is pot roast. And I love to bake even more - my dream is to one day visit Japan and France and go on a tour of their fabulous bakeries. I'm dying just thinking about it, haha!
I also love reading books and writing fiction. Fantasy and science fiction are my favorite genres, followed by historical fiction. I have a kindle fire now, but that doesn't stop me from "rescuing" paper books... In fact, I have an entire bookshelf of saved titles that I haven't read yet. Oops!
I also love anime, and the fandom and fanfiction world. Right now I'm watching Fractale. I just finished Kuroshitsuji, or Black Butler, which I loved. And other long-time favorites include Sailor Moon, Ouran High School Host Club, Soul Eater, and Simoun. Hmm, now that I think of it, that's not a lot of shounen titles... Aaah, I guess I really am a shoujo fan at heart most of the time...
Lastly: video games! I have a tendency to stop playing games halfway through, haha, and I prefer the PC, so I don't call myself a gamer. But I play World of Warcraft and Guild Wars II, along with rpg titles like the Witcher, Dragon Age, etc... Also the Sims & Sims Medieval (have you ever tried to finish all the ambitions on that game? Gosh it's a lot of work! Haha).
Whew, I guess that's enough about me. What about you all?
