    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.

    Giving

    There's something about giving, that I'm addicted to. I usually don't feel free to take unless I give and I more readily give up on receiving than on giving. For example, if I know someone I care about will not send a holiday card or gift, it makes me sad; but not giving somethng...
