Although I`ve had a few experiences before finding this board (only one disappointment), I must say that the depth and breath of the information (and the quirky personalites) here has changed things for me.
In the past I did a bit of research, made a pick and hoped for the best. Now there is so much research available here, so much information that I have been agonizing over my decision for a full week (!). I`ve managed to finally narrow it down to three girls from companions and will leave it to fate to see which one is available.
Although frustrating, this past week has been fun. As I labored at the computer, chain smoking and comparing pictures to posts long into the night, I began to get a type of giddy high. The whole idea of this board and of you guys (now ``US``, I guess) discussing things so openly has removed any of the remaining feelings of guilt or stigma I had been feeling.
To sum up: what I`m saying is thanks to everyone here, thanks for all the information and I hope to be regular participant and look forward to continuing my research into this wonderful hobby.
Wish me luck, I will be in Montreal in early november. I wonder who it will be with? Oh, the sweet agony of it all!
