1. ruling or governing; having or exerting authority or influence.
2. occupying or being in a commanding or elevated position.
3. predominant, main, major, or chief.
ORIGIN late Middle English: via Old French from Latin dominant- ‘ruling, governing,’ from the verb dominari.
Being Dominant isn’t about ordering someone around to do your bidding, or to have a minion. A Dominant, like my Husband, is someone who is thoughtful, careful, respectful, compassionate and loving. He is someone whom i devote myself to, willingly. And the thought of disappointing or upsetting my Husband causes me great distress and sorrow.
