When it comes to matters of dealing with your partner/lover/whoever you engage in sexual-type activities with, are you more submissive or dominant?

How about your relationship in general?

Or do you think that half and half is the way to go?

Yay for being both!

I don't really think there's one right way to go as far as dominance in a relationship goes. It really has to do with what both partners want and need from the relationship. *Personally* there are times when I want to be the more dominant partner in the relationship, both sexually and non-sexually. And other times, I'd prefer for my partner to take the leading roll. And the same principle works in reverse...there are times when my partner wants to be dominant, and times when he doesn't. It just depends.

i like to be submissive. i like it when a guy can make plans and i can just go along. but i'm one of those who strongly beliives that if you want something done right, you gotta do it yourself. so i wind up making very detailed plans and getting them done. i'm proactive like that if that makes me dominant, so be it, but gets the job done
