BJ'S BLOG 11/21/13 "Movie Snob"

Today…Group Therapy goes to the movies!
Well, not really…but Rock-a-Holic Heather might be looking for someone new to watch movies with. Heather is a self-confessed “movie snob”, who judges people based on the movies they enjoy, including her current boyfriend.
After 2 months of seeing this guy, Heather is considering breaking things off, because their taste in movies just doesn’t match up. Recently, Heather wanted to see 12 YEARS A SLAVE, but her boyfriend wanted to see THE DELIVERY MAN, because he loves Vince Vaughn. Heather has a big problem with this, even though her friends feel that she’s being too shallow.
In the age of dating websites and internet compatibility tests, I guess I’m a little surprised that a couple can’t figure these things out before they get too far into the relationship. That’s not to say that opposites can’t work out; my wife and I have almost nothing in common, but we’ve managed to keep it going for a while now. 
Personally, I think that a relationship works best when both parties are reaching beyond their own comfort zones, and meeting in the middle. Isn’t that what any partnership is all about? Are a partner’s preferences in movies, TV, and music so important that the future can live or die because of them?

Get over it
You do not have to like the same things. I love horror movies my husband loves Jason statham lSo? We are both comic geeks and compromise on the other.

life is more than movies
If there is so little else going on in the relationship, they should break up. My girlfriend loves watching those god-awful shows on Bravo, but I wouldn't consider breaking up over it. It's such a small part of our lives. If movies are that big in her life, she's got problems.

well said BJ
Sounds like she IS being a bit shallow. Or maybe she doesn't even like him all that much and the movie thing is just an excuse. But if she otherwise likes him with the exception of his taste in movies then she is being sort of petty and narrow minded. I guess if movies are THAT important she should have cleared that on the first date. Shoot, go see a movie by youself if you really want to see it and your partner doesn't. I have done it. My husband and I rarely agree on what movies to watch. And there are only a few tv shows we both like. We agree on music though so that's nice.

I agree!
I totally agree with all of you... There has got to be more to the relationship than just movies and, if not, then it's not a relationship worth having. -HotKyle
