It is kind of odd how things have kind of happened with teacup. It just feels so right and natural. From the first exchanges to all the moments to now....all have felt right which I know sounds so cliche but it is true. Before we left for Christmas vacation, I did a post saying I was excited about poly and all these things are odd because in the time we have been exploring poly - it just hasn't happened that way. We have had some things that were nice, felt good, but nothing was really what I would call right to me.
Our initial travel plans to visit my family for Christmas - we discussed flying but as I started checking and watching plane prices go up and up. We realized it was going out of our range so we decided to do a road trip. We love road trips but doing a road trip gave us another thing to look forward too also - and that was we could actually take time to meet teacup. Our initial plans had been to have our first meeting in the new year but meeting her sooner worked for all of us - as we were all excited to meet!
Because it happened fast and some work plans got thrown in the mix Master and I didn't really have a chance to sit down before we went on our road trip to talk about expectations of a first meeting or those of teacups to make sure we were all on the same page. We kind of had to do it in parts along the way. At least the road always allows for Master and I to have good talks. Master had teacup write out her expectations so we could discuss those and then unfortunately not all 3 of us could talk about it at the same time but he was going to be able to talk to teacup about our talks.
I am a person that at times has to talk about something - the same thing over and over and over and over - rehashing because maybe something isn't being expressed. I mean it all might sound good in words on the outside but sometimes on the inside my anxieties, insecurities or emotions might be a little off balanced and need some work so saying the same things out-loud over and over and over will help me sort out the inside junk. Also at times I need to say the same thing over and over and over again because there is that stuff inside that needs to come out and be expressed but I am either having problems expressing it or just even recognizing it in the first place so rehashing the same thing over and over and over helps me recognize and express what is going on inside. I can tell you because of the rush of work, getting things ready for our trip, the time with family and such - I didn't get to rehash things like I needed so some things got glossed over without recognizing some expectations I had going on that I didn't see upfront.
But overall we did exceptionally well. Really now several weeks later - looking at it I am amazed that without all the things we didn't talk about - that it did go as smooth for a first meeting such as it.
Teacup arrived at our designated meeting place - the hotel parking lot - before us. When we pulled in, Master said right away he saw her sitting in her car, really I was nervous but not as nervous as I thought I would be. We parked next to her and all got out and did hugs. My first thoughts were how pretty teacup is - beautiful eyes that sparkle when she smiles. We decided on a place to go to lunch and just get some of the nerves out of the way.
Teacup ordered soup. I had so wanted to order soup too but my first thought was I would spill it on myself and I didn't want to do that when I am just meeting her for the first time. After she ordered she expressed the same, concern out-loud. I had already ordered but it just made me smile that we were going through similar anxieties.
After lunch we went back to the hotel, checked in and then spent the afternoon talking. We talked about poly issues - such as if this were to work into a long-term relationship how would it make her feel not being viewed as Master's girlfriend to local friends and family - as I am viewed (although neither of us are his girlfriend as we don't have the equality going on in our relationships that would be in a girlfriend/boyfriend relationship). But being viewed as a friend. We discussed many topics and possible issues and just all sort of things while laughing in between. It was just fun to talk and laugh with her. It felt good sitting there hanging out.
The hours slipped passed quickly and soon it was approaching dinner time so we opted to just go pick up pizza to bring back to the room. More talking with pizza. Soon after dinner Master and teacup moved to the adjoining bedroom of our suite as I took care of Domestic Servitude business online in the outer room.
So a background on something with me....with men sex is sex. I can have a connection with men and have sex with them but most of the time it can just be fun sex with a man and nothing more. But with women for me....I have to build friendship first and that connection moves to intimacy. Just moving to sex or anything sexual or really intimate such as kissing is hard for me without having that connection in place. Now Master and teacup had much more of an opportunity before our meeting to get to know each other then her and I. So although I felt like we were building a good foundation - we really got along from the first emails, chat and such - I still wasn't to a place of "oh yes lets have sex." Because also - a lot of that is an in-person thing for me with a woman. But we kind of all agreed if things felt good we would move into the sexual arena. Well.... things felt good but I was still not sure I was ready to move there. I knew I wanted to kiss her. I knew that without a doubt and it is a regret that I didn't kissing her more then I did - because I let the issues that did come up block me.
It started with teacup in the middle while Master and I touched her. He was sadistic and I was soft and tender. Master could have been more sadistic with her but I was slightly freaking out - that he was being sadistic with this person who until she met us - was vanilla. I had a few visions of her having regrets later if he was too rough or sadistic. This was our first threesome so it was kind of surreal watching Master being sadistic with her - it turned me on to see him touch her and see her reactions but I did as I say have little worries of "oh no he might scare her off with the SM." But in the end after we all discussed it later - he could have gone further and she would have been PERFECTLY fine with that. :)
On the same line of thinking she did the same thing with me when he did some breath play on me she worried he might be taking it too far but really he was holding back with me too - as to not scare her. Discussing it after though really was good for all of us and good learning for us all to see where were at in the pain/play and what we want. Now I know where her mindset is on the SM - and see that she is a masochist!
So we played with her in the middle and then Master was in the middle and us girls ravished him for a bit before we tried to get some sleep.
There were a couple issues that came up. It was hard that they happened but good we talked about them. It was hard to talk about them and I know I was having problem communicating - my feelings in the situation but we did get them talked through.
In the morning we had some more talking through the issues before getting ready to go pack up and go to breakfast. After breakfast, we found a park and took some photos of all 3 of us together. We had tearful goodbyes but with good plans to look forward to our next meeting when teacup comes to visit us. Because the trip overall did solidify that we all really do care for each other so much that we want to keep moving forward with this relationship. Everything felt really good together even the hiccups confirmed that because of how we communicated after the issues - felt so good.
I can't wait for teacup to come and spend time with us here in Colorado. To spend time hanging out, making dinner with me, being able to show her our beautiful state, see her explore SM with Master, see how our intimate relationship grows and just every little thing - seems so exciting to think about with her here with us.
