Would you rather your man be dominate or passive?

I don't mean just in bed, but in day to day life too. Would you want a guy who is the take charge dominate type, or the passive one who goes along and doesn't have much of an opinion on things?

I have been with both types, neither or perfect of course, but I tended to be more attracted to the dominate man, and wondered why?

Jut wondering what other women think?

  • I like a man thats a man. I can't stand a man that lets people walk all over him. He needs to be able to lead our home and be confident in that leadership. Thats one of the many things I love about my husband.

  • I cant believe you jsut asked this cause ive been with the more dominant and swore Id rather jsut have a nice guy who lets me lead, but now that im leading...not sure. I think dominant is attractive but passive is so loving...sometimes i dont feel like i deserve all that and other times i think do i have to tell you everythng that needs done!?

  • I prefer a man in the middle. My SO likes to take charge, but will also take a backseat. I don't want to be ordered around, and I'm not going to be a mans momma and tell him what to do. If a man is to much one way or another its a huge turn-off for me!

  • Dominate. I like an Alpha-Male type, within reason, of course.

  • goodI like a guy who knows how to be what I want, when I want. L.O.L. My dh was passive until I told him to be more aggressive.

  • A little bit of column A and a little bit of column B. My DH is a great mix of both. :)

  • When a guy knows when to balance the two, that's my kind of guy. I wish someone would tell Mr Dominant (SO) bc he won't listen to me! lol
