This is another entry for submissives AND Dominants to utilize for BetterFetish™ in your life. I cannot stress enough how important it is to take the time to carefully read and follow instructions to avoid ruining great opportunities for yourself and others.
With all of the resources and tips that I generously give, there are always folks who (1) are their own, worst enemies; and (2) choose to be insulted because they failed to PAY ATTENTION AND FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS.
Most folks are busy people who are juggling the important things in life to have time for Fetish Enjoyments. One of the worst things a potential submissive can do is to waste Our time. A Smart Domme will prepare written materials to:
- prevent repeating Herself unnecessarily;
- ensure that Her Rules and Requirements can be understood; and
- provide an easy resource for those who are seeking to serve.
Smart Dommes know that how a submissive complies with written instructions will demonstrate how s/he will show up in Your Domain.
A smart and worthy submissive will pay attention and follow instructions carefully. Really smart submissives read and re-read instructions before making further connections with the Domme.
The person who inspired this Ask Mistress Didi* post:
- Has been on My Mailing List for years, so he is familiar with how I do things;
- Has attended one of My Events, so he has had first-hand experience with how I do things; and
- Is a perfect demonstration of a desperate substandard — which is NOT attractive or desirable — it is a form of psychic/emotional vampirism.
Now, I usually-always give people a second chance, but I do have a 3-strikes-you’re-out Rule. This guy demonstrates that his ONLY concern is what he wants and he’s not even aware enough to realize that he was given a second chance and is looking to be coddled and catered to. Had he bothered to follow instructions, he would have seen that I’m in the be-served business, not the service industry.
In My previous post, How-To Tips for submissives: First Contact (links to which are all over My websites and in My emails that this person responded to), I emphasize:
4) Whatever you do, don’t approach Us with desperation! Do not beg! We will tell you when We want you to beg. Desperation is a warning sign of emotional immaturity, of whiners, energy vampires, incompetence, and selfish kinksters. While that may be a desire for some Dominants, I don’t know any of those types – and don’t want to know them because their attraction to people with “baggage” will bring drama-not-on-Broadway with them wherever they go. Neediness is NOT attractive and is a setup for disaster.
Here is the exchange that demonstrates that this person is lazy, inconsiderate, a faker-taker who will offer nothing of value to be worthy of My Domain.
Is there any chance that a competent male might help with the move, in the hope of catching the eye of a domme who deems that male useful?
You have been most hospitable to this one in the past. Seeking a new FLR, not just play.
How lovely to offer and thank you, but the move is out of the country and I have trained staff.
I will be in NYC for the month of August (so far) and perhaps discussions about FLR may ensue. Do contact Me after 7/25 and read My Requirements.
Have a lovely day!
Note: My Requirements have a form to be submitted for consideration to serve Me — something I encourage Dominas to do to weed out the wankers. jun did NOT submit the required form and is only focused on his agenda.
As You instructed, contacting You (nearly) after 7/25. Read Your requirements, fully compliant.
Await Your pleasure pertaining to FLR.
My 2nd Chance reply:
Clearly, you need to read My instructions again and pay attention this time.
Apologies if i overstepped. Did read and understand Your instructions.
Presumed, incorrectly, that You recalled me from past visits.
Once waited several hours at Your event for a Mistress who never arrived. Served at another event.
Were we not thus previously acquainted, would never have dared to offer the services that began this thread, below.
How might one start over, at Your pleasure?
Note: I have no recollection of this guy serving at any of My Events, which means that either he was not worth remembering or that he’s one of those people (there are many) who made up a story about serving Me and actually believes his lie!
Also note: jun’s apology has NOTHING to do with My response to follow instructions and he continues to make his request!
My 3rd Strike Reply:
There are always 3 things I consider when someone requests to serve Me:
1) how well they follow My instructions – which are the same for everyone and those who are worthy of My time and attentions follow them properly. I intensely dislike repeating Myself which is why I have what needs to be known written on My websites;
2) if they have bothered to read any of the gracious gifts I offer so that selfish-time-wasters don’t annoy Me; and
3) if someone has ever met Me in person and/or attended any of My events, how considerate to My ventures they have/have not been.
No, you did not properly pay attention, even after I gave you a chance to review My instructions, or you would have followed them.
I respectfully took the time to not only review My correspondence history with you, but also the instructions on My webpages and ensured that the links work. Obviously, you did not take the time to follow My instructions – as those who are serving Me did and do.
you attended ONE of My events to meet a person who stood you up and I have not received anything from you since – not a hello or Happy Birthday email and definitely not a donation to My Charities. All you have offered is a desperate plea to “serve” – which in your case, means to serve yourself.
Had you paid attention to the links at the bottom of My email or the sidebar of My websites, you would have seen My recent Ask Mistress Didi* post for submissives that addresses desperation and other faux pas that you continue to make.
If you don’t bother to invest the proper time in the preliminary steps to have what you want, you will not take the time to be of useful and proper service. And you show that you do not invest even the minimal amount of time to appreciate Me and My Domain, which would make you a liability and annoyance.
And I have no use for someone who must be led-by-the-nose to even begin a connection with Me.
Now, jun can choose to be offended or he can learn from this experience. My Karma is positive as I have outlined his transgressions for review. On top of being efficient and gracious by making My Requirements easily available, I have gifted him with the chance to make improvements. What he chooses to do is his Karma.
I encourage submissives to take a look at your presentation because it shows your intentions whether you are aware of this or not. There are many people who don’t pay attention and just get excited that someone wants to serve them, but the Quality Fetishists pay close attention! When you are clear on your motivations, you can better refine your search for Dominas Who match your desires.
One of My Domina101™ Collective Participants did what females who coddle their annoying male relatives do: she rushed to defend jun by saying that, perhaps, he didn’t understand My instructions or, perhaps, he didn’t have time to “read all that!” I relayed that if he did not have time to make a good start, he would definitely make a poor finish! And since I am not a desperate Domme, I do not bother to waste time on people who, for whatever their reasons, don’t give Me the time to properly begin a relationship with Me and What Is Mine. I have what he wants, not the other way around, and the submissive must be worthy of the attention he craves.
Her focus was on accommodating this stranger, which is something that people confuse with “being considerate of others’ needs.” As the Domme, Your needs are the primary consideration and Your attentions should be given to the useful and worthy. This conversation gave her the opportunity to see a reason that the subs who have shown up in her life did not fulfill her requirements and were not attentive to her desires. Making excuses for failures is a certain path to discontent.
I strongly recommend that you appreciate the many other Gifts I offer on My Ask Mistress Didi* site to improve your chances for creating the D/s relationship of your dreams and avoid nightmares. Pay particular attention to the following:
