    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.

    The Giving High

    I like to do things for people, whether if I know them or not. I don't care if I get used or taken advantage of or not, I will always do it. I have heard that that good feeling that I get when I do something for another is called a "giving high". I will always seek that...
