Is it important for heterosexual guys to have an assertive personality in relationships ?

I see many couples where the gf/wife is a high maintenance person with a hyperdominant personality that acts like his mom or spoilt little sister. Yelling at him in public, fussing over small things, painting him out as a jerk over things such as forgetting an anniversary, futile arguments, leaving him to guess whatever he did to upset her, being openly possessive to opposite sex friends/masking it as “protective” while he still plays the role of an emotional support rock while throwing money at her. Cuck cuck cuck.

^I don’t experience that and neither should you. A real man wouldn’t put up with it. You should either stick to girls with submissive personalities or ones that know your place as well as hers. They will see you as an equal rather than an inferior stepping stone to false empowerment. 

Agree/disagree?

    Depends on the personality of the woman he chooses to be with. Two very assertive people are often toxic together, although not always. All people need to find the match that works for them and it's not really a gendered thing.

    Yes. Men should always be in charge. Females are just for procreation.

    You are so afraid of this happening that you want a woman you can keep down. And people can't change their basic personalities. The dominant woman-submissive man pairing has always gone on and always will, because they attract each other.

    From what you've said, it sounds like you don't want a submissive girl, you want a doormat. And there's a big difference between the two, by the way. You want a woman who will take all your jerky behavior (like not caring enough to remember an anniversary) and never say word about it. 

    Yeah, a man should act manly. A man who is confident and assertive is a good thing. But the man you're describing is a narcissistic egomaniac. 

    Give up your dreams of being a dating coach because it's clearly doomed to fail.

    Agree, but many times the girl you marry turns into a mean-spirited woman later on.  In that case, the remedy is divorce.

      Or the remedy is don’t get married? Men gain nothing and risk everything

    Nah. It would only come up with certain abuses throughout the relationship
