Top 10 Signs Hes an Asshole, Not a Dominant
**With so many questions from new submissives - The Counselor enjoyed this quick article and wanted to pass it along!

For all the single submissives out there looking for love, I get it. No really, I do. You yearn to submit to a Dominant, and it seems like finding the right one is nearly impossible. Many of you will take what you can get because you dont think you deserve better. Others dont seem to know the difference between genuine affection or interest and the assholes who are waiting in wings for you.

I often go on lengthy diatribes about whats okay and what isnt between a Dominant and a submissive. I also frequently go on rants because people are made to feel that normal, healthy desires or sexual activities cant have a place in BDSM. For anyone who doesnt have the time for all that, heres a handy-dandy list of what separates the Dominants from the assholes so youll know one when you find them.

Note This is directed at male Dominants for two reasons. One, thats my main experience, and two, Ive never heard of Dommes pulling this kind of crap. If they do, share with me in the comments below so everyone can be aware.

He demands you call him Sir or Master from the moment you meet. Youre a submissive, not his submissive. I advocate being respectful until he gives you a reason not to be, but anyone who demands a title before its earned needs to be ignored.
He starts out an introduction with a dick pic. No Dominant is going to send you this without some sort of agreement between the two of you. Its just not going to happen.
He sends you unsolicited instructions of how to please him or orders to obey. Did you talk about this list? Was there communication and consent? If not, this is just another poser.
He ignores your hard limits. Dont just walk away from this loser, fucking run. Ignoring your clearly identified and communicated limits is the sign of an asshole and an abuser. A Dominant will push your limits, sure, but not without first talking to you - a lot.
He disregards your safe word. Yes, some Dominants out there claim not to play with a safe word. I find that dicey but wont pass too much judgment. If you use a safe word, though, it should be respected. Ignoring this is just more abuse.
He lies. I know some people will say that everyone lies. White lies to save face or feelings. Most Dominants I know are honest to a fault. Think about it. How can you communicate openly and honestly if youll lie about things - big or small? John Brownstone doesnt lie he simply ains from speaking until the time is right to tell the truth. I can respect that.
He thinks more about his pleasure than your own. Caveat if youve negotiated a relationship where this is acceptable to both of you (yes, thats possible), thats okay. Not my kink, but okay. Im referring to the jerk who gets off and then ignores you or doesnt listen when you tell him your preferences.
He makes you feel bad about yourself. Im not talking about a humiliation fetish in the middle of a scene or even as part of an on-going relationship. Im talking about the soul-sucking, self-esteem shattering bullshit that makes you feel less than human and unworthy of love and affection. Ds should build both people up, not tear you down.
He separates you from family and friends. Okay, lets be honest here. Some people are just bad for us. They make us feel bad and doubt our self worth. I dont mean those people. Im talking about loving relationships with friends and family. A good Dominant wants a happy, healthy submissive - and isolating you from people who care about you wont achieve that. Frankly, it will simply show that hes selfish and, most likely, insecure.
He tells you that youre not a real submissive because you have your own opinions. In a Ds relationship, how you express those opinions will vary based on your consensual, negotiated agreement but you should always have your own opinions. The other flavor that goes with this one is that youre not a real submissive because youre too independent, aggressive, or (best of all) not willing to do what youre told by someone you just met who claims to be a Dominant. (Insert big, fat eyeroll.)
Assuming youre online when these things occur (and it usually does), I also think you can be proactive in dealing with these men. First of all, you are under no obligation to reply to a message that includes anything you find offensive. If you tell them to stop or to leave you alone, you can and should ignore them. You dont have to continue following or being friends with these people online. The unfollow, unfriend, and block features are all there for a reason. Use them. If it crosses over to harassment, you should report them to whichever site youre on.

Once youre in a relationship, you must remember that youre free to end it. You are allowed to withdraw your consent. If he doesnt listen, hes no longer acting as a Dominant. Now hes an abuser. And he should be treated as such - even if that means getting the law involved. Your physical, emotional, and mental well-being truly are that important.

If someone does a couple of the things on this list, they might (but I doubt it) simply be too new to understand how Ds really works. Id give them the benefit of the doubt, but Id also move on and not engage with them. Let them learn the hard way - or end up alone, either way works for me. When you come across the guy who does most of these things, hes not a Dominant. Hes an asshole. Dont waste your time or breath on him.

Going to make this as clear as I can I'm not looking for sex . no interest in it. If your bored keep moving . I'm not bored. If you have no genuine interest in me , and you know later on you will loose interest , KEEP MOVING ON. Don't ask anything of me that you yourself won't do.
