Control perhaps is not the correct term. If you have a better one for me I'd appreciate hearing it.

Control is probably the appropriate word for what you are describing.

My partners don't work for me, they don't do my bidding, they aren't my kids or my pets... so I exert no control over how they choose to conduct their relationships.
Me: male, 43, straight, non-hierarchical, independent
