Shewolf729 Posted November 26, 2017 Let me preface this by saying I'm very new to BDSM. My partner and I have explored some aspects of D/s, but are struggling because of our roles in daily life. I love the feeling of being submissive and she loves being dominant. When we are in these roles it is nothing short of magical. However, due to my work, I spend all day every day being/acting dominant, and unfortunately it unintentionally carries over at home. I'm currently the "breadwinner" as my partner is a full-time student. At the same time, my partner is struggling with confidence due to changing from full-time high-powered job to full-time student. This makes entering into the roles we prefer very difficult. I'm curious if other people have been in this situation and how they handled it. I'm also wondering what things I might be able to do or say to help me come across as more submissive and put her in a more dominant state of mind, without it seeming awkward or forced.
