I think there is a lot of looking at this as a spectrum from 0 to 10. That people who are 0's want 10's, and that people who are 10's want 0's. That switches are somewhere in the middle and maybe they're more sub and are maybe 3's and they should seek someone who's a 7, if that makes sense?
The problem I have is that people are so much more complicated than this.
Some switches are dominant. They are completely dominant, and yet if the situation was right, would be comfortable letting go of control (and for dominants, I'm sure that takes a lot of internal security) and yet they get treated like they're mediocre for it.
Some switches are submissives. They are completely submissive, but when the occasion was right, if the right partner came along and was happy with that, they'd take charge.
Some are completely both, and it depends on the partner, or the circumstances, or they can get all their needs filled in one.
Perhaps we should stop looking at this as dominant and submissive are on the same scale...
Maybe someone's 50% submissive, and completely unrelated, they're 75% dominant?
Maybe someone's 90% dominant and 70% submissive?
Maybe they're completely separate natures that don't contradict or work on a scale where to be more of one, you have to be less of another?
Then again, that just kills the heart of all the uber-subs and uber-doms who believe in the simple three categories of Dom, Sub, and vanilla, doesn't it?
