Please excuse me if this is a dumb question (I'm brand new here) but how much are age play and DDLG tied up? Like is part of the definition of being a 'little' that you enjoy role playing a certain age?

There is some overlap though the two are different things. I think the main thing that littles have in common is that they enjoy child-like things, its just part of their innate personality, they are really in touch with their inner child. Age role play, on the other hand, is an activity that pretty much anyone can do. Anyone who can play the role of a pirate can also play the role of a child. Just as you don't need an iron claw to play the role of Captain Hook, you don't need to be a little to play the role of a little in an age role play scene.

 

Another way to think about it - comparing littles and age roleplayers is sort of like comparing actual doctors with people who play doctors on TV. Some people are littles but not into age role play, some people enjoy age role play but are not littles in terms of their everyday interests and personality, and some people are littles and enjoy playing the role of a little in age play scenes. I think there is a good amount of overlap and it seems like most ageplayers consider themselves littles, middles, or Bigs, but there's also a lot of littles who don't role play.

 

Also not all littles are submissive. For example I enjoy child like things so I identify as a little and have fun when playing with other littles, though I also enjoy being the Dominant in a relationship.

 

Also there are s-types who like Daddy Doms but don't identify as littles or like child-like things. I think these people are more likely to identify as babygirl and look for a partner with a significant age gap, though I think babygirl is also a nebulous term since it's also used by AB/DLs.

 

Anyway that's just my perception and my understanding of these terms.

Thanks for your very comprehensive and well written reply. It certainly has helped me.

 

Not that I want to put a label in myself, but I'm not even sure if what I want fits the DDLG umbrella at all. Basically, your second to last paragraph sounds like what I'm after...I'm a bit older and would love to find a younger girl to love on, nurture and enjoy. It's still very much a "daddy" role, but not necessarily with someone that identifies as a little. Maybe I am in the wrong place :s

In my opinion, one of the differences between a little and ageplay is that a little doesn't PRETEND to be a little kid (unless they're a little doing ageplay). But littles tend to act younger than their years and like childish things-- but it's more of a personality thing than a "being a little kid" thing, I guess?

For example, I love lunchables and get very excited when Daddy gets me some. They're super cute and super fun! But I still like to talk about philosophy or work with him while I'm eating them-- I don't pretend that I can't hold an adult conversation.

On the other hand, sometimes I'll just go mute and not talk and want lots of cuddles because I'm sad, or I'll throw a minor tantrum-- because I have the kind of personality where I throw tantrums once in a while. And then Daddy puts his foot down and takes away my iPad. :(

But to make things even more complicated, every little is different, so my experiences don't speak for others'!
