GD was the first club I went to when I entered the scene, the immediate warm welcome gave me the courage to jump farther in. It will always be my home, my happy place, and I know no matter how long in between visits the welcome will still be there waiting. The educational events are fabulous and I always come away with some new knowledge. I have met several play partners there, one of whom now wears my collar. Even on nights when I may not play, just being with my own makes me happy.

I had a great time last night and so did everyone else, to judge from the grins, giggles, and squeals.

Y’all throw a terrific bash

I already filled out a membership app for GD2..it was really a great place and I felt like a child in a candy store..the atmosphere at GD2 was wonderful and GD2 went way beyond meeting my expectations..I look forward to making good friends here..what a great place..and i enjoyed making some new friends already there.

I went to my first Newcomers’ Social alone. I was a bit apprehensive too. Same questions.. what to wear, where to park, what do I do, what do I say…??? The closer I got to the place, the more nervous I became. I almost chickened out, but I knew I’d never forgive myself if I did.

I dressed in comfy pants and a shirt, found the place just fine, found a parking spot right around the corner, walked to the door, pressed the doorbell, and climbed the 47 stairs to Galleria Domain 2. As I entered the door from the sidewalk, Colt opened the door at the top of the stairs and looked down at me, welcoming me with a smile and friendly words. Funny… he didn’t look scary. 🙂 He was great.

Inside, members showed me around. BOOM! Instantly, I was at home and comfortable! Everyone was super nice and helpful. All the members who come to the Newcomers’ Social are there because they want to greet the visitors and make them feel welcome. I enjoyed the social, signed up for a trial membership, and went home anticipating my new adventure! That was in March. Maybe April. I am still a member, and have developed some great friendships with people there.

When I first went, I was afraid that I would feel like an “outsider”, but it wasn’t like that AT ALL! Everyone was very interested in learning about me, and answering questions, etc.. They are FABULOUS, warm, caring, fun people! And they are all very helpful and welcoming at the Socials. Most of us were nervous / shy when we first went there too. So we understand, and are sensitive to your apprehensions. Also, if you don’t have a lot of (or any) experience in this lifestyle, they’re great about making you comfortable, and helping you figure out where you want to go from here.

So go enjoy yourself! Have a fantastic time! And if you have a moment at the Social when you don’t know what to do, or who to talk to, you can just say to Carol, or Colt, or whoever shows you around “I’m feeling a little shy” or “I don’t know what to do now. Can I stick with you for a while?”, and they’ll take care of you. I have said things like that to people there. We had a special event there a couple of months ago, and everyone was asking me why I wasn’t participating. I finally went up to the lady who was kind of in charge of the event (whom I didn’t even know all that well), and said “OK. I’m concerned about something. Here’s what it is, and I don’t know what to do about it”. She and Carol fixed me right up in no time, calmed my concerns, I participated, and a great time was had by all! There’s no pressure, no creepy psychos, no danger, no ickyness. 🙂

What I’m trying to say is:

Go! Relax! Feel comfortable! Have fun!
