Answer for How do I go about finding a Dominant (or submissive)?

Time is your friend.  Rushing into a BDSM-type relationship is not only foolish, it can really turn out horribly for everyone concerned.  Taking the time to properly get to know someone before entering into a Master/slave or Dom/sub arrangement is essential.  Learn to recognizing the red and yellow flags that could signal an impending train-wreck.  Create an account on Fetlife.com and start looking for local events and munch groups. Make plans to attend. They’re not scary at all. Trust me on this.  You’ll have fun.  Make friends, and get to know people.  Take your time!  That’s how you find a partner in this lifestyle.
