similarities and differences
Dear angel of mine,
At first blush, it seems that we should never have started dating. But, although we're so radically different in certain areas, we work so well together. I've been thinking about this for some time, and I've got a few observations.
Primarily, I think that our differences serve to stimulate us. Although we have similar attitudes in many areas, there are areas where you and I will never see eye to eye. One of them, no doubt, is my fondness for absurdity in movies. Another is probably your fondness for high end cosmetics and their applicability for men. But although I disagree with you in places, I respect your right to your own opinion.
I don't expect everyone to share my opinions. (After all, as a Dom, I don't tend to share very well - something about having to have my own way in certain things....) I don't even expect to keep holding ALL my opinions forever. One of the best things about this world is that we all keep getting more and more information. With every bit of information, we change. With every interaction, we have an opportunity to learn. And so, we're gently (or not so gently) schooled in human behaviour, and the way that the world works.
Every lesson that I learn gets filtered through all the previous ones. And I watch you, and listen to you, and think about what you say to me. And each lesson helps me to understand you. And the better I understand you, the better I understand how to tease you, and the better I understand what works or doesn't work for you.
For example, your growing interest in exhibitionism is something that you weren't aware of. Even as you made yourself more and more visible to the world in your vanilla life, I know that you've always harboured fantasies about being shown off, and teased, and played in public. I know that when I first brought it up, you were surprised and not a little disconcerted. I also know that making you do things in public, or threatening to do things to you in public, gets you hot and squirmy. I can feel it when I push you up against the elevator wall late at night - you're SO conscious of the camera and the mirrors, aren't you? You're incredibly turned on by the thought of some anonymous audience seeing you being treated that way.
For me, I keep learning new things about myself. Things that I like, things that I don't like, and things I never really thought about. I've learned about my fondness for spanking you. I've learned that I don't really like to use nipple clips on you. I've learned about the way I deal with crisis in my life from watching you go through your own crises. (They never seem to come one at a time, do they?)
I have so much to learn from you, angel. And so much to teach you - about me, about yourself, and about what we can do together. Every day with you teaches me something new about myself. Thank you for that, darling.
