I am okay with those who have had experience with pros. As a former pro dom, I know what their experience adds up to, and I don't mind that it had nothing to do with "submission".
Actually the same here, it shows me that they wanted to explore and don't just expect to get their kink fulfilled because they declare themselves "lifestyle", pretty much depends on how they describe their experience and how they come across.
Guys who've seen pro-dommes usually know that there is a massive difference between booking a session and having a life-style relationship, on the other hand plenty of guys who proudly announce they'd never pay for a pro expect the same service for free, I guess we women have to show them our "twueness" by giving them service a la carte without charging...
Btw I found this a great way to get rid of people who send me laundry lists of what they want to have done to them, you just send them back a mail saying "That will be amount X for an hour!" And you never ever hear from them again, if you tell them "Not interested" and block them, they usually come back with another name.
