I like the idea of men being supporting of women no matter what they call the relationship. Women who lead well deserve support from their mates. I think the role of FLR men is a supportive one. Unfortunately men tend to make it a sexual one and push for kinky sex blowing off the real benefit to women. Guys what do you feel is the role of FLR men?

Ann, I also like the idea of men being supportive of women. In fact, I personally like to find ways to support and encourage women; for instance, I often complement my female colleagues when they accomplish a challenging task at work. I also offer to go on coffee runs for the women in the office. Additionally, I like to discuss contemporary examples of powerful women like Condoleezza Rice or Hilary Clinton and many others. However, men who are involved in a FLR have an additional responsibility; we should not only be expected to support women, and to place their interest above our own, we have a moral and an ethical obligation to encourage, nurture and grow their confidence. I personally would welcome a relationship in which I could take on the supportive role and help push my wife to a point where she is continuously improving herself, building her confidence and increasing her self-esteem. I realize that in many cases her strength may come at the expense of her husband, but that is what men are there for, we want to support our wife’s, we want them to be strong, we want them to succeed, and we do not mind being in their shadow.

I think the role of men in FLR is anything the couple defines as true. anywhere from 51/49 through 100/0 in decision making

Stepping right off the limp and into a messy pile please remember that sex is a great motivator. I have to admit that I like to be supportive, I will run interference for my women in nearly anyway she wants (one role of a man in a relationship, FLR or otherwise, which I hope is a real benefit), but if I can do it wearing a pair of “manties” even better. Re-reading that is a tad smart ass and I mean no disrespect to you, the readers or the subject matter but a spoon fully of sugar… hopelessly a man, gat1207

Men have died for women, Men have built monuments to women (can you say Taj Majal) Men will come to the aid of a woman. Men live to make his Lady and family happy So the fact that women are finally showing men that they too can lead is refreshing. If a man comes across a woman who has leadership abilities is kind, considerate, has a good sense of humor and can be a leader as well Men Respect a strong woman so yes men will be their for her when she becomes the leader as long as she can handle that role. Men will become her helper if that is what she desires.

His role is to encourage and support her to find fulfillment. His reward is to see her attain it, and her acceptance of his love and devotion as her natural right.

Karim56 This is sweet and right on target, everyone should do this for their mate.

His role is also to translate right feelings into right action. Without practical action where are the benefits for her? And how can he achieve his own fulfillment except through sincere and real support to her? He has to follow through consistently, to pay attention to her wants and cues and not to his own selfish fantasies. He has to be both active and creative about this. That means taking care of the practical stuff that matters to her. And then going beyond this to thrill her with unexpected acts that express your love in ways that are meaningful to her (and are not just indulging his own fantasy.) I regularly struggle to follow through, and to avoid slipping back into self-indulgent habits. This site is a real help to regaining focus when I feel myself going off track. Thank you.

Karim56 Well said. I liken my relationship as a CEO/COO structure (to use words many can understand). I have the vision and he makes it happen. I also create the "Master Puppet" (from the book "Real Service") which places an invisible me on his shoulder so he can run his thoughts though the "what would Master want" filter. This has helped to avoid what you called slipping back and what I call "drift". Unexpected gifts are great - only if it is what she wants. I've been gifted service that did not matter to me. You can imagine how hurtful it is to give the gift of service and have it not be appreciated. Remember, it isn't service if she doesn't want it. I have enjoyed reading your reply and posting to it - thank you. M_Jen

The role of an FLR man is to redirect his life to the service and pleasure of his woman as SHE desires so that through his service, her world is made easier and more pleasable
