Seafood.

Okay guys, you might not think this is a problem (and it really isn't a HUGE problem) but my boyfriend hates my favorite foods.
Thanks to @cindystran's card for getting me thinking about the food struggle ;)

I love him, he's great, this might even be his only flaw!

but for the love of God WHY does he literally gag at the thought of sushi? a fillet of salmon? Squid and clams and tuna?!
I'm really joking when I call this his flaw (because to be fair, he loves burgers and I'm a pescatarian) but I think it brings up an interesting conversation...

How do you compromise in relationships? What do you compromise?

Has a teeeeeeeeeny tiny detail ever broken your relationship?!

taggy tag tag!

😣 he's missing seriously out; has he ever tried it? maybe he could try that and you could try something that you might not like, but he likes (within the pescatarian boundaries of course 😊). my friend doesn't like oysters raw, but she enjoys them chargrilled; I think its an opportunity to explore exceptions to his dislike of seafood and maybe your dislike of some foods; it will definitely be a bonding experience, if nothing else
Differences between each person is something that makes it interesting. Life will be so boring if we're all the same. Learning about each other and accepting the individuality I think is pretty awesome. Well, that's just me.
My husband and I have totally different eating habits. He's a really meaty person and I'm all about leafy greens. When deciding what to eat we try to consider one another. However, I would have to say he's better at compromising and I appreciate that!
My husband LOVES seafood...all forms, but is anaphylactically allergic. At least at some point, your love might just change his mind. If he never does, that's ok too...Because fortunately, what one chooses to eat (or not) is not an indictment of character. ♡♡♡
sometimes it's also a texture thing; or if the seafood isn't prepared right it still has a fishy smell which can be off putting.
