If I had to describe myself in a single word, I would say 'caring'. I realize a lot of people describe themselves as such, and quite possibly it is the most common self label given in a profile, but none the less I think the word applies to me in a special sense.
I care about people. People I know, people I don't, people I like, and people I don't like. I'm not a very social or friendly person unless you know me, but no matter who you are it is my nature to care about your well being. I'm not on a crusade to change the world from the outside in, but I like to think I can change the world for one person at a time, a little bit at a time. When someone is depressed, I stay by them. I remind them that if they're feeling blue, that's OK because blue is my favorite color.
I would like to meet someone who could love me for this since, of all my traits, this one is the least likely to change.
I am a child at heart. I get older and older, but I like the same things I always have. I am extremely idealistic and I not only remember those cheesy 80's cartoon values, I strive to uphold them through my own actions. I still have some toys, I like cute things, and I have a great imagination. I find myself interested in many aspects of the little girl dynamic because of the youthful idealism, imagination, and style of dress that implies. I'm a ruffles and ribbon kind of guy instead of the usual leather and vinyl. I like foofy skirts, mary jane shoes, lolita fashion, and everything cute.
My dominant side is one that manifests only for someone I care for. I am not the 'alpha male', and I have never had an interest in throwing my weight around without purpose simply to be in charge. I'm asocial and would not bother having someone do for me what I can do for myself. With someone I care for, and am affectionate with, this is different. From that person, and that person only, I would permit and appreciate service. I would let them serve me so that I could be the best person for them that I can be. For that person, I would be willing to give instruction so that they could be the best person they can be. I would do it because, while I care about everyone, I would care about this person much more.
Dominance to me isn't whips, floggers, or a lifestyle that is the same for everyone across the board. For me, dominance is the freedom and responsibility to do what is right, and to do my best for those who have put their faith in me. The perseverance to walk a path of my own choosing for the good of those who have, in turn, chosen to follow me.
