    As the male in our relationship, I do the cooking, cleaning, DIY, washing, shopping, etc. I do as I'm told and receive the silent treatment if I don't.

    Modern male.:rolleyes:

    I'm not in one but I'm pretty sure I'd be the less dominating one. To find a girl more laid back than me would be hard to imagine, I can imagine rolling over just to have an easy life...

    I would like to say equal, but I know that if I'm honest with myself - I do tend to be in control.

    I don't mean to be, but I'm not a pushover and I won't put up with rubbish from anyone which means I probably don't attract the more controlling types. I would quite like a bit of assertiveness in my next boyfriend though. :awesome:

    (Well, in theory..)

    Either that or the partner of those voting 'equal' believe they're submissive in the relationship, but those voting believe it's equal.

    truesay :yep:

    do you think it matters if you're in an equal relationship or not?
    cos personally I don't and it makes you the couple that you are, but people often say that the 'eager dog' role means you're in a BAD relationship and should get out.

    think thats true?

    No idea. But, if it's still like this in 10 years time, I won't be a happy bunny. I don't like having to do absolutely everything as it is.

    We have a pretty equal relationship in most respects I think, but I'm the ''awkward one'' where as he's usually the one that keeps my awkwardness in check and he's usually in charge of things. It's my boyfriend's job to keep things going smoothly e.g. organising us so we're out of the house on time, or if we go somewhere he's in charge of booking it/sorting it out so I don't end up forgetting things.

    But I usually get the final say :mmm:
