Then you realize after about three months that his antics were only cute for about a month, and he started to not look so hot after he ditched you for his friends a few Saturday nights in a row. What you should really be doing is re-evaluating your standards, and try being more open-minded when it comes to dating. We are all guilty of this, we put many people in our lives in boxes. Being open-minded means not closing off people that you could actually have a connection with, and it may not happen on the first date. The people who have the best time dating are open-minded, and have fun just meeting new people.


By lovelycOctober 2, in Relationship Advice. I have been dating my boyfriend for a year and 7 months and he is a good guy and we love each other I am 23 and he is The thing is he is close-minded. He doesn't believe he should have to go outside his comfort zone.

What does open-minded mean in a relationship?

This is a problem for me because I am an outgoing, and open-minded person, I like to try alot of things and have very few limits I mean I have asked him about it and he said, it is difficult for him to try new things and very unlikely that he will change. Do you think this is worth me sticking this out? I definatley couldn't be with someone like this. My relationship with my exhusband was very similar. I don't have to tell you how it worked out for us. I don't mean to be all doom and gloom, and there's no hard and fast rules about it, but it's definitely an issue.

If you are this concerned about it now, I would really think about what that tells you. It wouldn't work for me, I know that. In my experience, close-minded people only become more close-minded as time passes, so I would think this would only get worse.

Sounds like a compatibility issue, and no matter how much you love these people, it usually just doesn't work. Maybe you could do the new things with friends as long as it wouldn't cause a rift in the relationship. But honestly, not being able to share everything that you like with your SO is really sad and a downer. I don't think it will work long term. I'm sure there are places he goes and things he does that you're not overly excited about doing. Try to picture how you will feel in the future in this kind of relationship.

What will life be like? In a similar situation, I could only envision a very constricted, limited life which I would eventually find to be depressing. So, I left that relationship.

An open-mind with a closed-minded person — can a relationship work?

I know I'm much happier. Maybe if he knows that you are really serious, he might try to change. Most people who are inflexible are so because they are worried about trying new things and not liking them or being bad at them, etc. I have a friend who used to be just like this - he would only eat a handful of set meals that he wanted at specific times, and wouldn't try new things outside of his comfort zone for fear of not being instantly good at them.

Me being quite an outgoing person and willing to try new things - I made it my mission to introduce him to something new each week, starting with something close to his comfort zone but not entirely in it - in this case maybe chicken but in a way he wouldn't normally eat it? If he's not willing to push his boundaries at all - then you're going to feel trapped after a while, but if he can be coerced to try some new stuff gradually, there might be a chance.

After all, the worst that can happen is he doesn't enjoy the new thing he tried, and he doesn't try it again. Who knows, he might discover something he's never thought of doing! Though I'd start off with some things you're pretty sure he'd like if he tried. My friend Open minded Boyfriend shares a love of foreign food with me, loves ordering things on the menu he's never heard of to give it a shot, and is planning to try his hand at something he's always enjoyed but never thought of doing - stand-up comedy. Getting him outside his comfort zone has made him a much more confident person and much more willing to try whatever he feels like trying his hand at.

If he's not used to changing, maybe all he needs is some gentle guidance?

The bolded wouldn't bother me at all. I have a boyfriend who could eat only peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, crunchwrap supremes, steak, fishes and chips, and cream sodas and be completely content with just those foods. Doesn't bother me at all. Driving, yeah, that would bother me. A I love road trips and B My favourite times to spend with my boyfriend are on long drives. It's the best time we have together. Sounds like your boyfriend is just not easy going with new people and places.

But, I don't think that makes him 'closeminded' just simply not comfortable with the unknown. He can't help how he feels. I have a feeling there is a lot more to this than you are letting off. Being together for a year and a half and considering breakup for these three things?

What else is bothering you?

Wow thank you all for your great responses I want to address some things Yes, this is the only thing that has been bothering me in our relationship and I have communicated this to him many times. He simply said he understood but honestly could not find a solution to the problem.

It is one of those unresolved problems we have. I have not forced him to try new things but I have placed him in different situations, and he felt really uncomfortable and just didn't want to be there. It was really hard for him. Also, let me mention this, I gave you all a broad oversight of a major problem, this issue trickles down to many aspects of our relationship We are going to have lunch tomorrow and talk about everything The thing, I am hoping is that he will agree to compromise his lifestyle for the betterment of our relationship.

I disagree with the title of close minded but I agree that you are both very different If not then I would get out now. There is nothing wrong with either of your interests they just don't go together. My ex husband and I were similarly different and now i am much happier with someone with the same values as me. May I ask for a personal explanation, this is really hard thing for me because I am very happy in this relationship other than this, and I don't know whether I should leave or go over something like this By saifox Started Thursday at PM.

Why not go some place 25 miles away to have dinner, why not? It's all about the dining not the drive! Compromise is a huge part in a relationship.

They can make it really hard for people to sleep well. Like me, most people have nightmares occasionally. These are called idiopathic nightmares. However, 9 out of 10 people with PTSD have recurrent distressing nightmares that interfere with their ability to function.

And sleep avoidance and sleep deprivation can lead to more intense nightmares. This is the awful cycle of PTSD: the more you try to escape it, the worse it gets. But there is a way out.

Why is it that some people seem to make constant progress in their professional and personal lives, while others appear to be doomed to repeat the same mistakes over and over?


Most of us like to think that we are accepting of all people and open to new experiences, but it's easy to get caught up in one way of thinking or to spend time around people just like ourselves.
