I had the exact same calling of rope as you. I joined the local rope group and started conversing with the leaders who ran it. I really didn’t want to attend a session on my own (felt like a Larry Loser), although I was encouraged too, as there were other singles that were attending. I opted to find a rope buddy. I spent an afternoon reading profiles (looking for commonalities) and sending a few messages. After conversing with an incredible man, we ended up meeting for coffee a few times, and before long we attended our first session which was very cool!. My rope buddy is now my Sir, and our journey continues across the full spectrum with this Lifestyle, with rope still a love for us both.
