Maybe. But no churchgoing, pedophilia, religion or other low-life activity.

I feel silly in a fireman's uniform...but whatever it takes...

Hitchens Level 8 Sep 29, 2018

Who hasn't?

SukiSue Level 8 Sep 29, 2018

Within reason, of course. Who wouldn't?

Mitch07102 Level 7 Sep 28, 2018

Sometimes I watch football when my husband is watching because I enjoy hanging out with him. Sometimes I find something else to do.

JenBeberstein Level 7 Sep 28, 2018

It depends on the activity.

Paracosm Level 8 Sep 28, 2018

What are the banduries for the activities?


Would depend on the degree of my not-liking-it. I'm not one that thinks a loving couple need 100% activity sharing...

seattlepanda Level 7 Sep 28, 2018

Sure. I have in the past and they have too.

Sticks48 Level 9 Sep 28, 2018

Yes, with a smile at least once. The second time...well that depends...

Nos2342 Level 5 Sep 28, 2018

Life is full of little compromises.

rcandlish Level 7 Sep 28, 2018

Depends on what it is.

HippieChick58 Level 9 Sep 28, 2018

I'll try most things once. If I don't like the activity but my partner does, they can go ahead without me.

Captain747ex Level 7 Sep 28, 2018

I have and probably would again, depending on what it is. Hunting? No. Going to a basketball game? Sure. And of course, I would expect him to do the same for me.

dkp93 Level 7 Sep 28, 2018

Of course. Every healthy relationship involves supporting your partner in their work and passions. Sometimes that means doing something you'd not do of your own accord like watch a sport, or go to a concert.

Of course, this all assumes activities that don't run into hard limits. I would never pressure my lady into doing something that was a hard limit.

JeremyTaylor Level 8 Sep 28, 2018

Yes ... but within limits ... one cannot or should not become depleted of one's own desires and aspirations just to please ... but compromises are unavoidable in a healthy relationship.


Within reason, yes.

AliceDaneal Level 7 Nov 1, 2018

Yes I'm a people pleaser.

JJWS112482 Level 3 Oct 7, 2018

It depends on who needs the pleasing! I'm more of a people watcher than a people pleaser.


That would depend on the activity, always. My reaction would also depend on how important it was to my partner that i go with her.

In any case, such romantic partnership would include a mutual understanding that we are two individuals going through life together, so we each have a right to do what we each need to do. .

Depends on the activity.

MissKathleen Level 9 Sep 29, 2018

Everything is negotiable. Tit for Tat and all that.

hippydog Level 8 Sep 28, 2018

What TYPE of activity? Being this group is about Real Intimacy my mind went directly THERE.

I would have to say, no if it is sexual and I can only think of one thing, so that makes life easy...

LetzGetReal Level 8 Sep 28, 2018

Yes, I would. As long as we get to do something I want to do soon afterwards.

Infoguy211 Level 8 Sep 28, 2018

I appreciate a partner who is willing to do things with me that they normally would not do. However!!!! When dating or starting a new relationship, beware! I have seen too many people that do things out of their comfort zone to please or “get” the new girlfriend/boyfriend. The charade can last a couple years, but people revert to who they really are, eventually.

EyesThatSmile Level 8 Nov 3, 2018

If my significant other wanted to do it, and it wasn’t abusive, and if she needed my assistance - I would consider it.

Santanaman9 Level 7 Oct 28, 2018

I hope to not have to, but it's inevitable. Yes I have and will I'm sure in the future bear out things I don't want to for the sake of a good and loving relationship.

Compromise is healthy.
