I met my CG at school! We were both attending the same community college, but he had been there a bit before me, so he had lots of friends. I was brand new and super shy, but he and some other guys brought all their friends over to hang out with me. It was overwhelming honestly, but fun! Then everyone but him left, and he was apologetic about overwhelming me, and hoped they didn't freak me out. So somehow he could already sense that I was sensitive, lol. Eventually started dating, but it was just normal dating, not the cgl lifestyle. I didn't know anything about this kind of lifestyle, and he only really had the concept of Dom and sub, but he also knew there was a gentle side of it, but that's about it. He DID know I was a little before I did though, and he said if I didn't figure it out by the time we moved in together he was gonna just start building me a "little room" full of dresses and cutesy things he knows I like and hoped that I'd catch on, lol. (7 years in and I finally figured it out, lol.) Still learning, but it's a mostly fun ride!
