Submissive, in the sense that they don't give me shit about just generally living, haha. I'll make my concessions, and it's definitely not a one-way thing or done in a domineering kind of way, but I am not going to be told SHIT. I do what I want, when I want (within reason), and I can't have you complaining or even giving me your opinion on what you think of it. I give a lot, in terms of "doing stuff" for my girlfriends, but when it comes to myself, you can love me or kick rocks. You're not going to change how I roll, don't even attempt it. If you force some kind of behavior on me, I'll only resent you for it, and eventually i'll be out. If you want me, you have to want raw, unfiltered me. And I'm personally 1,000 times happier alone and doing what I want than I am having a companion but said companion forces me to alter how I live. Again, it's within reason, it's not like "I play loud death metal every morning starting at 6 AM because go fuck yourself", it's more of these "why can't you be more [insert emotion/behavior]?" type of things. You knew who I was when you got with me, so don't get with me unless you're comfortable with who I am, because that's who you're getting, potentially forever. I have a saying: "I'll do absolutely anything for my lady, except change." That sounds rigid, and I'm sure many women wouldn't like it, but that's real. I'm not in the business of changing for anyone besides myself. Any other changes would be fraudulent in nature and would eventually ferment into a deep sense of resentment. And I have no animosity towards any woman who says she can't roll like that, I respect her prerogatives as much as I expect my own respected. I don't have a gun to anyone's head to stick around. Basically it's like ordering a meal at a restaurant, except if you don't want onions on your burger, just don't order the burger, don't ask me to come without onions. So basically, it takes a certain level of submissiveness to sign up for that. My current girlfriend is not that submissive by nature, and it causes friction at times, but it never boils over because she knows it's either me or the door. So she knows what she enrolled in, and she gets it. And she's free to bounce any time, I don't have her trapped in some emotionally abusive relationship. It's just understood that I'm very comfortable with who I am and how I am, all my flaws and all my merits, and they won't be changed until I wake up one day and decide they need changing.
