End of the world dating daniel tosh dating quotes
But why not, if you love someone why wouldn't you be willing to do those things..... We rarely went out on dates but when we did it was things he wanted to do.
I had no problem showing interest in the things he liked because I felt it was worth trying if it meant it would make him happy. people who were raised in a mostly solitary environment or by self-centered parents who didn't teach them to care about others.
In our relationship I probably watched one comedy with him because he wasn't into comedies and refused. Compromise if she converts to a religion and wants me to attend services knowing I'm an atheist? The reason your relationship lasted for as long as it has was his refusal to 'compromise.' Had he let you push him over and yield to your demands, you would have lost respect for him and dumped his arse that much sooner. If she means changing my personality and stop doing the things I like for fun in order to please her, then she'd better dump cause it isn't happening. Or, as an alternative, she could have just gone to watch romantic comedies with her girlfriends, and keep the otherwise stand up man. If a relationship starts lopsided, it will never magically improve.
Meanwhile I watched maybe a thousand action films and things I would most likely not watch on my own. Now, she has to wade through a bunch of yes-dear weaklings who are just not sexy, instead of being with a guy who was good enough to watch a thousand of action films with. The worst thing she can remember about her ex is that he did not go to comedies. The person getting their way all the time isn't even thinking about it, simply because everything goes the way they want.
My question is why is it so hard for some people to compromise when it comes to being in a relationship.
Ive heard people say they weren't willing to do things or change certain aspects about themselves for their partner. As I'm dating and looking back on my relationship with my ex, I realize he had a terrible problem with compromising.
A relationship isn't an inanimate object to acquire, it's a living thing that requires care and nurturing by the two people in it, otherwise the outcome is what you've recently experienced.

When I addressed these things to him, his response was that he's into what he's into and felt I was trying to make him feel bad.
