    How should I approach a girl, being a submissive male?

    I’ve always been a bit timid and tended to prefer letting others make decisions in relationships. Granted I only had one, and I was forced to be the one who “wears the pants” in it, but that is how I actually figured out I prefer to be the submissive (for lack of a better word) in the relationship. I am not the “wears the pants in the couple” kind of guy. I don’t like asking girls out because most of the time I’ve been turned down, and to top it off I’m nervous when it comes to that in general.

    Any tips on how to approach a girl or how to figure out what kind of a girl somebody is? Dominant women don’t seem to be all too common, and often times the ones that are dominant, so to speak, can end up being utterly controlling and a little nutty, which makes it harder on me.

    Anybody with some advice on how I can work this situation out? It’s been bugging me for a long time.
