Relationships are all about compromise. Anyone in even a semi-happy relationship will tell you that.
Sometimes, you're going to have to do stuff you don't want to do, and sometimes, the other person will have to do the same. That's just the way it works.
That being said, it's also important to have a few things you're not willing to compromise on.
For example, I love my friends. And one of my favorite things about my boyfriend is that he puts time and effort into getting to know them, and beyond that, he never annoys me about spending time with them.
But I could never be in a relationship with someone who tried to get between my friends and me. That's something I'm not willing to compromise on.
A few brave dudes on Reddit came together to discuss the things they aren't willing to compromise on in their own relationships, and I have their most logical, most absurd, most common and flat-out weirdest answers here for you.
Leave your jealousy at the door with these dudes.
This guy can't deal with you grinding his gears every day.
He will NOT shave his beard for you.
If you don't swing, he's out.
If you do swing, these guys are out.
He's not down for kids.
Physical abuse is a hard no for this guy (as it should be for everyone).
You have to put out if you wanna keep dating these dudes.
Don't make him choose between you and his friends.
Put those cigarettes out for good.
But don't make him put out his cigs.
Learn to love his video games.
Accept him the way he is.
Think twice before cussing out his mom.
Be nice to his kids.
He'll share his feelings and privates with you, but not his wallet.
No vegetarians for this dude.
At the end of the day, it's important to remember that you can't stop being who you are. If the things you refuse to compromise on don't align with your partner's, then maybe it's just time to move on.
