Did you really think I didn't compromise? There is a reason that relationship lasted 5 years.
I did. And by compromising each time after a couple of years I was left with no games, no friend, no roleplay.
I did gain a love for books though, it was a compromise that I happen to actually enjoy. I'll give her that point.
But at what cost?
In the last 2 years I knew only her, her friend, her hobbies ( of course she could keep her own, but not me) and my studies.
Then she demanded I started an architectural degree instead of what I wanted to do, even when I have no interest in that
"I won't marry a software developer" she said
I just blocked her
And life got not only easier
Life got better
I watched around me, and saw the same pattern again and again. I cannot believe that I had the intention to marry her even though I experienced first hand what they divorce did to my father and family ( and looking at statistics would have happened also to me, 100%)
Have I been stupid to put up with such? Probably
Have I been just unfortunate into finding a mate? Maybe
Is my environment not indicative of the whole population? Possibly
But I found out, based on my experience, my environment, and my knowledge that women are not worth it
You can only lose
I only lost, as did my father and my friends (the ones still trapped)
Fleshlights feels better, and are cheaper.
