Would you engage in a activity you don't like just because your partner does ?

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

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

Who hasn't?

Within reason, of course. Who wouldn't?

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

It depends on the activity.

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...

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

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

Life is full of little compromises.

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

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.

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.

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.

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. .

Everything is negotiable. Tit for Tat and all that.

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...

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

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.

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

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.
