I don't just mean sexually I also mean relationship wise.
Wow the majority of women want dominant partners and the majority of men want balanced relationships. I wouldn't have expected that.

  • I like a balanced relationship, meaning we both have the ability to take the reins. Mind you I tend to be more laid back and like a guy who can take the lead but I don't necessarily always expect him to nor want him to. Like I said; I am straight forward so I like guys who are straight forward, I am definitely attracted to guys who are more leader-types or aggressive in some aspects but I don't want a relationship where I feel I am being completely submissive. We have to still work together.

    • Intimately I'd like him to be a bit more "dominant", not BDSM - you know what I mean.

    • Yeah I dig. I was like that when I was a virgin too.

    • Yes it makes sense I suppose.

  • I want a balanced relationship. Women don't understand how exhausting it is to always be the one calling the shots, and how freaking annoying it is when you ask them what they wanna eat and they always say "I don't care, whatever you want".
    I like confident girls that challenge me, and not a woman that looks like a little girl who needs to ask me what socks to wear.

    • Lmao I'm the same way. Although I might be the guy version of the girl example in your answer.. Thanks for drawing attention to that.

    • The girl that doesn't know what to eat, or the one that doesn't know what socks to war? xD

    • The girl that says "whatever you want" lol

    • Yeah I prefer a balance in a relationship even if I'm somewhat on the submissive side.

      Sexually I go both ways.. not gender wise lol.. Thanks for chiming in :)

  • Relationship wise, balanced is the best option obviously. Sex wise, I'd prefer someone more on the dominant side.

    A relationship is a partnership, not a leader and a follower situation.

  • balanced. i'm sure he'd dominate in some ways, i'd dominate in others. i think all major decisions should be a discussion though.

  • Really interesting question! Ideally I'd want a balanced relationship overall. Like, this could mean he's dominant about certain things (sexually for example), and I'm dominant about others. I would be okay with a dominant guy too as long as he wasn't too dominant. I don't think I'd be into submissive but maybe.

  • Dominant sexually but balanced elsewhere, yet only slightly. I don't want him to have a final say in everything in our relationship, some things should be discussed and solutions reached together, but for the most part I wouldn't mind if he was dominant and almost like a caregiver type of deal.

    Then again I am into the whole daddy dom thing so lol

    but.. just because sometimes.. I can be soooo indecisive...

    I'd like it to be more of a his side weighted balanced...

    • Yeah I'm the same way to be honest. I'd need someone who is more decisive.

    • Show All
    • I mean.. if we're both decisive.. say.. 40% of the time.. but its in different things.. then there is only a problem 20% of the time..

      and well.. sometimes you just need that time waster to build up the frustration.. and have good make up fun lol

    • lol that's true.

  • I like a partner who is on the same wavelength with me. I don't want someone who tries to dominate me, and I also don't want someone who will never stand up for themselves. I need someone to help balance me out. However, in bed, I do like for a guy to take control and lay it on me. Yasss.

    • There you go. It's nice that know what you went. Thanks for sharing :)

  • I'd prefer balance, but maybe a little submissive on his end because I'm a bossy biatch.
    But there are sometimes where I'm clueless and would prefer he to not be afraid to be dominant.
    I guess it boils down to balance. We both need to read each other's strengths and weaknesses and work with each other. Not against each other.

  • I want a dominant partner I guess, but that doesn't mean I want to be submissive all the time. I still want him to take me and my views/thoughts/opinions into consideration when making decisions. And I want to call the shots every now and then. I'm just more of a follower than a leader.

    • But I do want it to be 50/50 in terms of effort and all that. MAN THIS IS A DIFFICULT QUESTION I don't know how to explain myself without sounding dumb.

    • lol yeah that's why I figured I'd ask it. You know.. because I'm so profound :p
      Thanks for sharing, lumos!

      P. S. You couldn't sound dumb even if you tried.

  • I've dated submissive guys and i just ended up walking all over them which i did not like! Then i dated a dominant guy but i felt like i was walking on egg shells so i decided to give up on life lol nah jk but i think it should be balanced definitely with a little spice of him being dominant xD so 70% balanced and 30% him being dominant lmao the answer to this question is hard to explain (>.<)

  • I like balance. I think balance is good. Though personally I'm more submissive by nature, I can be dominant at times as well. So I'd like a guy that can be both as well. I know some guys that don't like showing submission at all. They always have to be in control and that's not what I need.

    • You don't mind being slightly more dominant?

    • No not really if he just appreciates my initiative of taking action. It kinda has become this way. Like I almost always make the plans since he's not very creative with dates and in bed normally I like to start and he finishes, but overall more balanced.

    • I understand. Thanks for sharing :)

  • Why not one dominant, and one submissive, at the same time?

    OK, just kidding, though that did happen once, long ago, two sisters, one aggressive and one giggly.

    But really, isn't it good to be surprised sometimes?

    • Yeah it's good to be surprised but people do have preferences.

  • Sexually I like submissive, but relationshipwise. I love a good woman basically, with her own mind, thoughts and opinions. Hence more balanced. Know one of the first things she liked about me for example, was that I didn't let her walk all over me, which made her respect me more, can kinda go the same back.

  • Relationships-wise, I definitely want to have balance. Recognizing that your partner possess certain strengths that you don't have is really nice, actually.

    The only place I want her to be submissive is in the bedroom, and even then it's because it's something she *wants*.
