I've been tempted to tell my best friend about my ABDL side for over 5 years now. Well, last night, he slept in my dorm, andwe started talking about our personal feelings and fears. As new college students, we have many. It evolved into a deeply philosophical conversation about happiness, and got very abstract. Then I figured, what the hell, and told him.
He basically said that it's fine, and really, it's not that wierd. As long as I'm not hurting anyone, why should it be a problem. Basically, it's socially wierd, but if you get past social norms, it's pretty much whatever. He said he sees me no differently, and honestly doesn't mind.
Then it evolved again into a conversation about taboos we like, non sexual, and of course, eventually it evolved into fetishes. I actually showed him my secret chest, and he was insanely impressed by my collection and feats of depraved engineering. :p
Anyway, aside from that, thought I should share this big step for me. Other than my boyfriend (whom I met on adisc), and my therapist (who is literally paid for confidentiality), he is the only person irl who knows.
