    Submissive?

    I do feel best when giving.It makes me happy to make others happy... gives me pleasure to provide pleasure for others. I believe that's a big reason why I am submissive. I have a natural tendency to nurture and serve others.

    Going out to eat with people who act like the service or food isn't good enough when they are doing the best they can. You ruin it for everyone when you act like a jerk.
