SSA: Sacrificial Service & Authority
We are curious to see how MDNA affects dating and romantic relationships. Just like in any social situation, people can approach the same circumstance from completely unique perspectives. Every MDNA gift approaches dating and romance differently. These differences can cause either unnecessary misunderstanding or add a unique variety of opportunities for a deeper connection through mutual acceptance.
After observing people in different relational situations (married, single, divorced, etc.) and listening to their stories, we have the following advice that may be of assistance in the increasingly complex world of dating and romance. This is by no means complete. But, we hope it will give you just a little more confidence.
If You Are SSA
If you are an SSA, you will constantly be thinking about your romantic partner’s practical needs. You will be easy going, not demanding if not shy because of the attention. This will always be appreciated. But at the same time it can be frustrating depending on who the other person is. Don’t fall into the trap of solely being there for your partner’s every whim. Be your own person. Take control of certain decisions. Voice your opinion and preference. Don’t always default to what they want. And most importantly have boundaries. Boundaries show you respect yourself and demand the same from your partner.
If They Are SSA
If you in a relationship with an SSA, understand that their intrinsic motivation is to build a platform of success under you. However, we strongly suggest that in order to really maximize the potential of your relationship, make an effort to do the same for them. This may cause them some discomfort but press in. They will appreciate and value your effort. Be attentive. Don’t take them for granted. Ask questions. Really listen to the answers. Each of your needs will be met fabulously. Always encourage them on what they can do. But also graciously receive their sacrifices because it makes them feel significant. Respect their boundaries even if they are not as vocal about them.
The SSA and the DLF are a natural fit for a highly functional relationship. The DLF naturally leads and the SSA has no problem following. This is not about slavery or control. It’s about accepting an order in the relationship that positions both people to be in their element and strengths. The SSA can also be a particular benefit to the CVS; especially in the area of supporting new initiatives and trying new things. In reality, the SSA compliments most of the other profiles as long as they are mature and have proper boundaries.
