You know what? I think it's my fault for even talking about it to him. 99% of guys don't understand that shit. Even though they expect girls to look pretty like in movies, anime and TV shows, the actual work required for it is too much for them to accept. The moment a girl actually listens to a guy and stops dieting, taking care of her skin, wearing makeup, doing her hair, etc is the moment he cheats on her with another girl who still does all those things.
I love him, but in the end, he's still a guy. It just makes me sad that he'll never fully accept my hobbies or mode of self-expression. At best, he'll get used to it, but it will always bother him. At worst, he'll turn into an asshole about it as time goes on and try to make me stop.
I want to believe that he'll eventually learn to appreciate it, maybe not because he personally is into it, but just because it makes me happy, but I just don't know. I feel really sad now.
