(For the purpose of this writing "relationship" relates to any relationship between two or more people whether it be romantic, D/s dynamic, friendship, mentoring, or otherwise.)
Over the years I've been in this lifestyle I've noticed the trend of new folk jumping into relationships with the first person that seems moderately interesting. I get it. You're brand new, still thinking that part of you might just be screwed up some how, and then this other person shows up. They tell you how awesome you are, how awesome they are, and you figure you're lucky to find someone like that so quickly, so why not?
