Angry Relationship advice

Hey all, ive been seeing my g/f for over a year, we live together now. Most of the time things are great but one issue. Whenever we watch a movie, listen to music , go to the movies, etc she seems to reject about everything I like and we always (well 95% of the time anyways) end up going with her movie, music, etc. I'm sick of it to be honest. We only watch her shows, enjoy her music in the car, etc.

Today I told her I wanted her to check out a movie I knew she would like and she just was adamant she absolutely would NOT watch it and we were going to watch a program she wanted. I finally gave her the remote and told her to watch whatever, that I didn't care anymore.

So any ideas? Am I just going to have to resign myself to a lifetime of only watching and listening to what I want whenever she is not at home?

She must think you need her more than she needs you.

Either find a way to compromise or get a DVR.

I second this, have a chat with her and find out why she's like this.

re: ODogg's Love Life Thread

You need to express to her how you feel about the situation. One of the best things about a serious relationship is the other introduces you to things you otherwise would have never given a chance. Both people will watch , listen , or go to a event they don't want to because it's important to the other.

Does that mean you give in every time? No , of course you don't. But for you to be the one to give in all the time is ridiculous. I think you need to explain the issue to her and go from there. If she isn't willing to attempt to honestly try on something as simple as this you may have a bigger problem to deal with.

Relationships just like almost everything in life are a 2 way street.

re: ODogg's Love Life Thread

That sucks.......You need to speak up now and nip it in the bud. Either she starts watching some of the stuff you like to watch or she needs to move on.

Can't just have it all one way. She must have grown up an only child or something and not use to sharing. My wife don't like my movies, but she will watch them, just like I will watch her boring chick flicks from time to time.
