A random assortment of reports, thoughts, ramblings and information. Pretty much a view inside my wonderfully complicated, sometimes broken, and entertaining mind.

getDare has always held such a special place in my heart. This is where I met my husband, and my little worm. It is where I found myself. I learned to be a Domme. This is where I have grown into the person that I am today.

I have been here pretty steadily for the last 10+ years. When I am not writing blogs or hanging out in the chat, I am always in the background responding to reports, putting out fires, listening to people whine and complain. It is tiring at times, discouraging at others. I have been harassed, yelled at and seen so many things that I will never be able to unsee. I am not bitter, I am just tired.

I think I have outgrown getDare. I think it is time for me to leave, at least for now. Maybe this place will draw me back in, but maybe not. For now. I just know that I need to go.

For those that want to keep in touch, please do! I love to hear from you (as long as you aren't asking me for unsolicited things).

Discord: Butterfly#3687
Kik: Butterfly.cm
Fetlife: Butterfly_cm

I also still will receive emails when I get PMs (for now). So feel free to reach out that way if you wish.

Thank you for 10 years of awesomeness my friends!

    While I haven't been active here for very long, I was a quiet lurker for many years and have seen the huge contribution you have made to getDare during that time.

    Thank you!

    All the best for the future where ever it takes you.

    This is such sad news. To me you are gD.

    It will not be the same without you.

    Thank you for lots of fun times on here. Thank you for making me feel part of this community, for all the little adminy things you have helped me with and for not covering me in glitter too much

    I know our friendship will carry on outside of gD, but it's still sad to think you won't be around here.

    Your importance for this community can not be overstated, and if I were to try to say anything about it I would only wildly understate, but I'm speaking from the bottom of my heart when I whimper:
    Oh no!
    I am going to miss you so much! We've never really interacted a lot, but you have always been there, like a... well, like a rock. The anchor of gD?

    I don't know what to say. I can't imagine gD without you.

    I'm going to call you Butty one last time: Fare thee well, dear Butty. Live long and prosper.

    It's always sad when one of the newer users decides to move on Our paths haven't crossed that much recently, but I know how much this place has meant to you. I don't think this is goodbye, but you have to do what you feel is best for you. So good luck, and I hope our paths cross again. x
