Help me explain to my boyfriend that I want to walk home alone at night

My bf doesn't like it when I walk home from my job alone, at night. I am a woman.

Or maybe I really am being irresponsible? [more inside]

Reconciling my submissive feelings

I am looking for advice about or stories of coming to terms with submissive feelings in bed. I'm a lady in my mid 20s and I like dudes. I've seen a few questions like this one and this one, from the perspective of guys who want to be more dominant with their girls, but are finding it hard to get in the head-space. I'm interested in the opposite angle. [more inside]
