Initial Trust is simply providing your trust upfront until someone proves otherwise unworthy of it. This is more commonly known known as giving “benefit of the doubt”. In our everyday lives, something like that wouldn’t normally be wise. But, when trying to impress and show your potential, it can essentially become your resume.
Overcoming fear will be your biggest obstacle. But how do you overcome your very valid concerns? Simple. Share them with your Dom.
Not so simple? Why? Answer that question and you will be able to overcome it.
Your Dom deserves full compliance.
Anything else and it would be considered topping from the bottom. Something that will turn off most Doms very quickly. You say you are submissive, then BE submissive. No one should be expecting you to turn your life over to them at the first meeting. And, if they do… then you have every right to definitely proceed with caution.
Just like a job interview, always put your best foot forward to give the Dom a taste of what you have to offer. FOCUS completely on the task of pleasing HIM. Nothing else matters beyond that singular goal.
The rest will work itself out.
Developing initial trust requires you to have faith in the person that you wish to submit to. Trust your instincts. If you get a seriously bad vibe, then graciously decline the opportunity. But, do ask questions first to gain clarity before making a hasty decision. Bad vibes, after all, could be just a nervous reaction. So be sure to always communicate your concerns and be honest about your intentions. There was a reason why you approached that Dom. Now, help him see your potential and that you are not a waste of his time.
Words are NEVER enough.
Trust that He has your best interest in mind. But, you have every right to ask as many questions as necessary in order to be confident in your ability to submit and provide what is needed so that both of you enjoy the experience.
