I've been a part (an excessively silent part, mind you) of the AB/DL online community since 2011 and in that time I've taken care of dozens of Littles and have long-standing relationships with quite a few. However, towards the beginning, my behavior with and towards them was a lot more...open than it has become lately. I used to be much more apt to baby them over Skype calls and our general rapport was that of a caretaker to a very small child.
Lately (as in the past year or so) I have had a much more difficult time treating them as Littles on a general basis and most of that conduct has transitioned to just being displayed in RPs and only RPs. I've even started to become excessively anxious whenever any of them even hint at wanting one-on-one Little time with me which forms into a complete inability to take any form of action when I'm asked directly. It's almost as if I have a block against it.
So, I guess my question to all of you is, why have I all of a sudden become somewhat "unreachable" as a caretaker?
