I Am Changing

How often have you heard someone say that they want someone to accept them as they are in a relationship? Quite often I can imagine. But have you ever thought that notion to be impossible? Can you really expect someone to accept you and put up with you as you are and with the personality that you have?

I use to think that I wouldn't change anything about me for anyone, but now I know that isn't fair or is it possible. I know that I am a hard person to get along with because I am so rigid and exact. I can be controlling and bossy. I can be bitchy and irritable. Is it fair for me to expect someone to fit into my mold of what I want if I am not willing to do the same for him?

I now know that in order for me to have a successful relationship, I will have to adjust myself to the fit with the person that I want to have a life with. I can't be in a relationship and always have things my way. I am sure that there are traits about me that I can't change, but if changing some of those traits can help me to have a successful relationship, then I am willing to do that.

I would love the opportunity to date you. I would accept you just the way you are. To me you're perfect.

Yep, it's called compromise.

About freakin' time you post something! I had this conversion with someone like a month ago. I was like you want someone to accept you as you are. I would never want that. If someone lets me stay in the same state I'm in, why are they there?

I believe in compromising on certain situations, but changing who I am...hmmm.... not likely. I'd hate to end up empty handed and disappointed that I wasn't who I started out to be.
