I don’t love the saying, “Relationships are about compromise.” I believe that sometimes relationships call for compromise—but are they about compromise? I should certainly hope not. If your relationship survives on incessant, never-ending, every hour, on-the-hour compromises, then you’re with the wrong person. The idea that compromise is the main ingredient of relationships is a dangerous one that makes many women think it’s perfectly fine to be in a relationship with someone who forces you to transform your core values. In fact, I can almost promise you that your friends in unhappy relationships often claim, “Relationships are about compromise!” when you point out how utterly miserable they seem. You may have to bend here or there to be happy with the right person, but here are things you should never change about yourself for a partner.

Your need for monogamy

If you are monogamous by nature, don’t ever let a man pressure you into having a polyamorous relationship. You know what makes you feel happy and safe and if that’s not it, then it’ll never work.
