Dating comic book fans
I'm not the type of comic book geek that has long discussions on who could beat who or that kind of thing, but I do have a rather large library of graphic novels from all sorts of different companies (not just Spider-Man or Batman type).Honestly, I love the mythology and ideological aspects behind superheroes (empowerment, freedom, identity, etc) and everything they represent.I think there's a lot of great comic books out there that can very well be considered literature (Watchmen, for example, is the War & Peace of comics, in my opinion).
Honestly, there were times that I felt like she looked down on me like a child for still enjoying these things, you know? Dressing up....well, I do have a Superman belt buckle and shirt.
Anyway, we parted ways amicably and still talk once in awhile, so it was a short one-month thing that just didn't work out. All in all, I'd like to think I'm pretty casual compared a lot of them out there. I am saving for my grandson when I am no longer here. OP..that's what dating is all about....it's like a long job interview to find out if two people are compatible...........isn't enough sometimes.
My question, after all this ranting, is this: suppose you meet a guy (or girl) like myself who gets great enjoyment out of something you're not remotely interested in, but they'd still like to try sharing it with you? You know, I tried watching Venture Brothers and just couldn't get into it. I am sure you can find some local gal that is compatible. Your hobby bothered her clearly so you guys moved on........harm, no foul........
For example, my favourite movie of all time are Shawshank Redemption.
Recently, I was dating a girl who, honestly, found sci-fi and fantasy silly, preferring the realistic or historical movies. Molotov C0cktease and Doctor Girlfriend are my favorite characters. Well, I sometimes get excited about buying the latest trade/graphic novel of a series I'm following.
As long as it's not your entire life, and priorities are taken care of first, I think it's a good thing for couples to have a few separate interests, to be honest.
