Wow- I have spent all evening at this site and I love it!
The internet can be an amazing thing.
I am a DL and have been for as long as I can remember.(I'm in my mid 40's) I am coming out of my shell more and more as I find it preferable to hating myself in the closet. With the help of posts on this website and forum I don't feel so bad about myself anymore.
One thing I read years ago from a AB/DL from another site "If you cant be ordinary, strive to be extraordinary!"
My other interests include music, art, nature and loving my family as best as I can.
Its really great to not feel so alone anymore. For you younger people on here you are really blessed to be able to freely network with others sharing your AB/DL interests! Enjoy it as much or more than I am.
