Dating: Should you switch your style?

Everyone likes the idea of meeting someone great, liking them, and them liking you back. The thought of having to make compromises, concessions, or God forbid actual changes does not bode well for single people.

We all believe we are wonderful creatures and anyone who dates us should accept us as we are! Why would you change to please someone else, right?

Realistically speaking, how many people in a long lasting relationship can actually say they made it work by staying the exact same person? A friend of mine has a woman who is trying to give him a makeover. Simple stuff, really, nothing particular major. Personally, I think she has made his image a lot more polished. I noticed the changes almost immediately and I remarked how nice his new look was.

His boys are giving him a hard time, however, for switching up his style to appease his woman. Although, he tells them that he really likes her “suggestions”, they still believe that she just took the first step toward domination and think it is a warning sign.

Do men worry about their women making too many changes to things like their appearance/image, etc? Are they open to hearing some suggestions or does it come across as controlling?

Have you ever switched your style after dating someone? Have you ever suggested a change for someone else? How did they respond?

Happy Friday!

Dva compromise is a great place to be. Changing who you are is not.

I’m happy I have no desire to change any individuals. I’m also happy I understand compromise goes both ways. Some only believe compromise is defined as my way or no way.

So if u agree to compromise,you won’t change your ways?

Is compromise only applicable if the other party changes? Because if you accept to compromise on some aspects I guess it also means you change what you have been,prior. Feel me?

I am ok with a fix upper woman myself! :lol:

And I can be Dianne’s fix Upper if she so chooses.

@ Shaunie, you took the word right out of my mouth. That was my first thought after reading the topic. Even though we might not see it, hopefully we”re always evolving to the situations around us, if not you will be in the same ole place all your life. When things change on your job, you change, the same should go for your relationship!! When me and my significant other are talking I listen to what she says and act accordingly. As for as the boys, when they can satisfy my needs like she does maybe I’ll listen to them, but don’t think that’s going to happen! (LOL)

good morning. apparently the magic word “balance” is a recurring thing. i don’t think small suggestions of wardrobe/hair/other physical changes are major. by small i mean pointing out a color or style that is flattering and giving s/o option of deciding whether or not they like it. it’s a whole new ballgame when a person is attempting to completely revamp a person’s image and personal style. there are certain things that i simply do not wear and no number of suggestions from a s/o is going to change that. i don’t think that means i’m uncompromising in general even if i refuse to compromise my style.

Good morning.

His boys are giving him a hard time, however, for switching up his style to appease his woman. – He really should care less (well, to a point) about his boys and more about this woman and their relationship.

Although, he tells them that he really likes her “suggestions”, they still believe that she just took the first step toward domination and think it is a warning sign. – As long as he likes her suggestions and is willingly going along with them for the betterment of himself, let his friends think what they want. You really can’t control another person’s thoughts. To me, this is an example of ones “boys” riding him because the change appears to be for the good. Doesn’t mean she’s dominating a thing. Just showing him how he can improve. Who would not want to see another improve?

Do men worry about their women making too many changes to things like their appearance/image, etc? – I think the operative word here is “too” many changes. Relationships change as time goes by so the people should change along with it. It’s inevitable.

Are they open to hearing some suggestions or does it come across as controlling? – Don’t know, but it shouldn’t come across as controlling. Let me back up, it all depends on how it’s delivered!

Good morning….everybody :)

I don’t think you should have to change your style of “being” for anybody. I think as an individual change happens over time. I look to improve with age and time. I don’t however wish to morph into someone else all in the name of love. If what initially attracted you no longer appeases what do you call that?

When I think of compromise I think of finding a happy medium and a place that works well for the both of us. Compromise is not changing or giving up the person you are and have grown to be. Compromise is working towards the center…me from my end and you from your end. None of us are perfect, not even the spouse or SO that desires you to change. Overall, I’m insulted if asked to change my style….of being.

I’ve been working on a change to my man’s hair style, but he is happy as is. I know it will look a lot better, but he is happy as is. I’d really like an updated look, but he is happy as is.

So, I am happy as is. Truly. I’ll leave it in the ‘maybe one day file’ and enjoy him for who he is (outdated hair and all) :)

i like leggs’ assessment. i was thinking right along the lines of his friends being downright jealous.

here’s the thing though, i wouldn’t suggest changes to anyone’s look, outlook, or approach in life unless they ask. if you’re asking for my input, then how am i “changing” you? i’m not forcing it on you, and it shouldn’t affect our relationship at all if you choose to disregard my advice.
ultimately, only you gotta do you.

now unsolicited? yeah. no. i don’t do that and don’t take to it kindly.

Hey Leggs….. :-)

I think in a relationship we should not only should be good for one another, compliment one another, but on another level cause positive change and growth, and if that mean enhancing your style thats a plus. I know its a fine line, if you feel someone is trying to change you, but then again, if its for the better, it maybe time to shed those ole skins….

First of all, we should not all believe we’re wonderful creatures and all that. Get over yourself, I say; personally, I know where all my warts are. Most of them, anyway. Consider that each new person brings a perspective about you to which you should at least pay attention. If they’re honest enough with you to tell you things they think are wrong about you, appreciate their honesty. If the ‘wrong list’ is too long, self evident: they’re not the one.

s/o asked me to wear heels more often cuz he luvs that look.
my dear blog gents said, if he’s a good dude and you want to keep him happy, just do it!

slim, i’ve heard of the ‘bros b4 hos’ code but, thankfully, have not come across that foolishness myself. this is what i don’t understand about the people we choose to call “friends”. if they don’t want you to have the things that make YOU happy, what the hell kinda “friends” are these????

As far as switching styles, let me speak for myself. As I’ve matured, my style has loosened up a “little” bit. I’ve always dressed conservatively because I’ve always worked in law firms. I think my clothes aren’t as “tight laced” as they used to be and I’m finding a sexier side to me. As a result, I project myself with a tad bit more confidence than I used to (if you can believe that). :wink:

Seriously though, change in the form of growth is always good. It’s a given that you will change, and the person you’re with will also change over time. If they’re the right one for you, then the two of you will change and grow TOGETHER.

On topic – When I was dating, I got SO TIRED of hearing dudes whine about not wanting a woman to change them!! I am like Brat – I don’t give unsolicited advice about appearance & such. If you ask and don’t like what I say, then that’s on you. Most of the dudes I dated were pretty acceptable when it came to dress and appearance, so I didn’t really run into any issues with that. But alot seemed to be on the edge about me trying to change things, maybe due to chicks they dated in the past. One was extremely paranoid about it. My simply suggesting activities that were different from what he was used to was a sign that I was trying to change him, and he told me that! I simply wanted to branch out to a few different restaraunts or cultural events from time to time. If he truly was not interested in going, just say that, but don’t accuse me of trying to change you! He was happy doing the same ole same ole. I left his behind alone.

Luckily, my husband & I have the type of relationship where we can recognized areas we are willing to compromise on, need to change or keep the same. For example, I am slowly but surely changing the eating habits of him & the kids to be much healthier. The fact that I make things healthy AND tasty made the transition easy. I also didn’t force it on them. I didn’t roll in throwing out all the meat and declaring us vegetarians over night. There is a method to affecting positive change on people – IF they are accepting.

Oh and that mess about dudes boys ribbing him? Juvenile that any man out of high school is still influenced by peer pressure. That would be a turnoff to me. And his buddies are definitely jealous. They probably don’t have a woman themselves and are probably still dressing like they are in high school. And he’s still listening to anything they have to say? SMH

Worrying about what (insignificant) others think and more over gravitating is plan immaturity and foolishness.

Also, it’s one thing for a SO to get adventurous (lol) and pick up that dress or pumps because they feel you can pull it off….sexy and all all the while making them happy, it’s another thing to request that I buy things to make you happy. I’m sorry but relationships aren’t dictatorship. When you met me you liked my style….I would guess. Not saying having a chat with something like “hey babe what do you think of this” A laundry list? Not so much.

May 4th, 2012
10:27 am

czBrat – I won’t say they don’t necessarily want to see you happy but for some it takes a minute to get acclimated to the fact that things may slightly change between them…whether it be the frequency they can hang out, out of respect consulting with the SO prior to making a decision whereas before it wasn’t that way etc. Take for instance when my best friend got married, I was super happy for her and I already knew some things would change. So I backed up a bit to respect their union so they could get themselves acclimated but she took my space as something else. Once we talked about it, everything was better. Now she’s preggers and i’m SUPER excited about that but again, we will have to figure out how to flow once the baby comes. Call it Growing Pains lol

It is important to know your own style, or the style you want to meet with. And I really found the right person with the style I like on sugarmommydate dot com, why don’t you come and find the right style?

Celisea

And if it’s a matter of style (eating, habits, clothing) and I’d like to see the change then I’m going to offer to buy dinner somewhere other than what he’s accustom or cook a dish I’d like to introduce him to or take it upon myself to pick up the tie or watch or belt or shirt that I think would work wonders. Now if he can see what I can see and how well change works for him, then maybe he’ll start to move in that direction.

I agree with there being a method for causing positive change.

I have a friend who was dating this dude that really didn’t know how to dress appropriately for the occasion. He was also paranoid about “some woman trying to change” him.

My Queen has often suggested wardrobe styles..she buys All of my clothes,nikkers included! I am kinda rigid on style and oftentimes she will bring me jeans in so called vogue mode,but too youthful for my taste. Thank God there is ‘returns’ in America coz I sometimes send her back.

Now I compromise with one caveat.

Absolutely NO compromise on watching soccer! If there is no space fo u to record on the Telly,don’t delete Anything soccer related unless u run it by me.

No fixer uppers for me. And who am I anyway to say that you need fixing. You may be just right for someone out there. You just have to find that person. That’s why I’ll never try to convince a woman that I’m right for her. If I don’t do it for her, then she needs to move on and find what she’s really looking for. Otherwise, she’s just wasting our time.

I’ve never been into Fixer-uppers, not in houses, cars, men, etc. If it’s not brand new, it better be already “refurbished” before I’ll consider it!LOL! I just don’t have the patience. I accept that nothing is perfect, but perfect for me, whatever warts or dents are there, they are now mine. I’ve decided I can deal with them.

I have a friend that is kinda like one of these dudes with the change thing. She says she just doesn’t like being told what to do or controlled. Fair. Anyway, before I met hubs and she & I would hang out, she would trip out over they guys I would reject and the reasons. One big one was that I didn’t want a guy that smoked. We had a big discussion about it and she was going on about how I wouldn’t even give a few a chance. Talked about how they could just not smoke around me & brush their teeth, etc. I told her having grown up in a home where dad smoked, I knew that was not enough. The smoke gets all in the hair & clothes and car and really never leaves. But I told her the biggest thing is that I was not about to try to change a grown man. There would come a day when that man would want the freedom to smoke in HIS house or HIS car. Who was I to tell him he couldn’t? No need in getting something started from jump that I just can’t deal with.

I didn’t hear another peep out of her about it. I could see her pondering what I was saying.

But in whatever package you come (and that’s from the inside out), in order for us to be together I’m accepting of “as is.” It’s obviously do-able and something I can get with and as well as me being someone (flaws and all), he can deal with.

Okay, my kid and I worked on a project Monday night “What’s in a name” and origin, the meaning, how she connects, family crest so forth and so on. Why oh why did she just email me the same project with camera phone pics all over it??? Can you say ghetto? It was so neat and nicely put together. I replied and told her there’s waaaay to much of her going on in the background.

I received some really really great news last night :) I’m excited about the forthcoming weekend :)

Annnnd, I’m about to start a few renovations in my home. I’m getting my bathroom redone and hardwood floors put in. All by my brother…and no it ain’t free. It’s business :) I’m excited. I told him how much I had and he said oh shoot, I can do it with about 2/3s of what you’re holding. So Saturday we’re doing a walk thru of all I want done. I’m so over the top right about now. My brother does FANTAB work. He’s self employed now but he worked for this guy for 10 years where all the homes built start at $800,000 on up to approx 6MM. So he’s a pro, has a knack and an eye. Too he’s done a number of projects since venturing out on his own and I tell you I’m so dang proud. No shady shiester type stuff. Top notch. I was looking through his before during and after pics and I tell ya, he’s got it going on.

He’s finishing up a project for 40,000 right now :) That’s ain’t millions but it ain’t bad for a 3 man band.

Our office is having a Cinco luncheon. Someone brought a Publix key lime pie. I was waiting behind this lady that was cutting a piece for herself and her manager. She kept licking her fingers after she put each piece on the plates. That turned me off!

I took that as a sign that I didn’t need any!

Not knowing you shouldn’t lick your fingers dealing with other’s food outright and not knowing you shouldn’t lick your fingers IN FRONT of others while handling their food says she’s nasty. Point blank

@Celisea ~ I heard the little boy on The Bert Show. When I first saw the video a while back I thought it cute that the little boy paused when asked he wanted to say something to other little kids who couldn’t ride their bikes, then come with such a cute, inspiring response.

Nice on your home repairs…to see something that’s been in your mind’s eye come to fruition is something to be celebrated and happy about.

Congratulations, cba. That’s definitely an honor.

“In the back of my mind there’s always a crazy somehwere in the crowd.

I remember being in class one day when I called this girl a “toy cop” and we had a heated, somewhat healthy debate. Who I’m kidding, nothing healthy about it since we were both held back by other students (lol). Anyway, another person in another class came across as being “trigger happy.” I sensed he was dangerous so I didn’t mess around with him, but I watched him. We have Zimmerman today, well back then he was Zimmerman.

Yes, I’m a chicken when it comes to other folks’ crazy. Nowadays people have no problem taking themselves out after the damage is done. So it’s neither here nor there to them. Folks use to be afraid of jail time. Now they skip jail and take the train heading south

I don’t recall anyone cussing me in the subway, well not here in Atlanta. In the Bronx, Queen, Manhattan, Brooklyn, that’s a whole different story!

I’m somewhat tone deaf and wasn’t able to pick up on the dialect/twang when I first arrived.

I had to ask people to repeat themselves so many times figured only a matter of time before some tire of me saying, “huh, what are you say,” or me repeating something back that they did say and pull out a pistol and blow me away. Seriously, I’ve conjured up many scenario while sitting on the bus.

This is NOT crazy…this is how you think to keep out of the path of crazy.

now i’m truly rolling! i had oodles of troubles understanding southern speak when i got here, but i never imagined they’d get all vile on me. denial can be a very peaceful place. i recall riding the No.3 train to the last stop in ENY many a night around 2-3am (coming home from work). i’d see all kinds of unsavory characters but i REFUSED to change cars or get off. i was gonna show them they couldn’t rattle my chains.
clearly sweet jesus worked the same shift and musta been riding with me all those years.

Oh yeah, they are out there, but they are also at work with you, at church with you, in the park, at the game, at meet and greets (lol) any and everywhere….Always be aware, never be afraid….

I agree, Jake. Always aware and they are everywhere. Just the closed confines of the bus had me thinking even more. No matter the unsavory characters on the trains and buses of NY, the hidden animosity simmering on the surface is what frightened me. Sometimes it was palpalable.

my brother has a saying: “only three kinds of people are out in the middle of the night; perps, victims and cops. if you ain’t a perp or a cop, guess what?”
i still get mad at him when he tells me that. reminding me how foolish i was.

Jake – So true, but I’m with Leggs sometimes sitting around the CRAZY LOOKING PEOPLE is a beast in and of itself. Sometimes the most insane looking is who you should beware

Here’s a tidbit for the upcoming hot weather. Not sure if you guys know this, but Jason’s icecream cones in the back by the salad bar are free even if you don’t eat there that day. I’m not kidding. Park, get a small icecream cone, walk out and back to your car. I promise, no one will stop you. It’s free to the public.
