Until then, you will get heat from all the women defenders and equal rights groups.

I was going to ask my SO to pick up some coffee on his way home from work, but I'll make sure to tell him some random dudes on the internet will deem him whipped by a domineering woman!

You should probably learn the definitions of the words "fact" and "opinion." Facts have basis in reality.


That's a great point. The outlook the OP has wouldn't work well in ANY type of relationship, such as work, family, or friends.

My approach is all about self respect. If respecting myself is wrong I don't want to be right

Well, all of your threads and posts seem to point to the exact opposite...

So, was your father a domineering sort who told your mother what to do at all times? Because that would make sense since you seem to believe that men do not have to answer to anyone or be held accountable for their actions. My husband and I both run plans by each other before we make them. It's not about power - it's about respect.

It might be time to re-evaluate what that word means to you. If not now, I hope you do as you become older and wiser.

Yes, I'm curious as to what sort of relationship model the OP grew up with.

If love to you equates getting walked on then that's your issue dude.
Real assertive, confident, secure men do not get "walked on" in a relationship. They also do not "walk on" their partners. They understand that a relationship is intricate and complicated, and requires compromise, sacrifice, and balance.

Any man that says that he is single because too many potential girlfriends try to walk on him or try to control him, is not as secure and assertive as he thinks he is or he dates low quality women.
