I’ve been dating this boy for 6 months (longest and most serious relationship I’ve ever been in) and we get along really well and are very happy together, but I have my doubts sometimes on the likelihood that this will last, because we have pretty different views on things, and he is very stubborn.
There have been a few things where he asked if I could stop/start doing something because it made him uncomfortable and I have done that. But the couple of times I’ve told him something he does that bothers me, he gets very upset that I’m criticizing him or “trying to change him,” until i just give up, so he never makes any compromises for me like that. It just feels very one sided with the amount of effort he puts in sometimes. I don’t know whether I should bring this up to him and risk him getting even more upset and maybe losing him, or if i should just stop making so many compromises and standing up for myself more until he matches me on it. I really don’t want to lose him. And so far it hasn’t been anything that really mattered that much, but I’m worried it will just grow into a relationship that feels controlling and one sided but is too late to change.
