    Me, You, Them

    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.

    I hate seeing people upset or hurt. I'm very sensitive to other people's feelings and I always want to make people happy. It can be a great personality trait, but also a flaw.
