I ran into someone on the street recently who I learned was engaged.
I gave him a big congrats and asked where he met her.
He knew what I meant by it.
He knew I was really asking where he met a dominant woman.
I met him at lifestyle event years ago and we would run into one another at events like BYTE and SMACK. I remember always thinking of him as a pretty decent guy, certainly not a creep.
“Oh she’s not dominant” he said, “I realized I needed to give that up and just grow up”.
At first I was a bit taken by what he was insinuating. I still don’t know what he meant by it. It seemed to be partially directed toward me.
I dropped the subject and we talked for a few more minutes before we went our different ways.
The good news is, that’s one less submissive guy to compete against.
