Any advice for a beginner Dom in D/s?

After months of denial I finally realized that I want to get into the whole D/s thing. I already know I'm a Dom because I've always had the fantasy of being the more... mature one? I don't know how I'm supposed to word that. I want to be the one to do most of the pleasuring.. the protecting.. the disciplining.. the leading. Before I start doing anything like that I want to be as informed as possible. I read a statistic that a third of BDSM relationships go to shit because the Dom wasn't being responsible so yea... I don't really want that.
