Things You Should Accept About Your Partner?!

Was chatting to my sis, a couple of nights ago, and she said

''Sis, i know u dig honesty and ur a straightforward honest kind of girl and u tell it like it is. Also u also expect ppl to be as honest a you. BUT if you are going to settle down with a guy someday, you are just going to have to accept that, he will do things that he knows u wont like. At one point in lie, he will lie to u, cheat on u, or even consider it. And when he lies, he'll make excuses, or say its for ur own good.''

heck i know even sometimes when she and her guy are arguing, d guy will say '' baby u want the truth, but the truth is, if i told u the truth half of the time, u couldn't handle it. and i've accepted that women walk and sometimes nag, so sometimes i lie to u now, to avoid certain issues in the future''

i had to laugh, but it got me thinking about my sister's statement, and the fact that there seems to be some truth to it.

Do you agree/disagree? and why

And if you agree, WHAT ARE SOME OF THE THINGS WE SHOULD LEARN TO ACCEPT AND LIVE WITH, IN THE OPPOSITE SEX?

That attitude works like a self fufilling prophecy.

@ moondust. I wouldn't like to be cheated on aswell (its a female thing even male aswell). but would you like to be told you are being cheated on when there's still the urge to continue cheating. As for myself i wont want to know as long as i dont see it. (That's why i would give my bf evry privacy he needs).

I c just both ur IDs -ruudie and Luxoire

well in my opinion there are limits to the things that can be condoned in a relationship.

I know of very few people who can stand being cheated on, including meself

@Ruudie

yes i shall not deny it, Patience is not one of my strongest virtues

and NO i can't comment on any particular posts, but i know that when someone geenrally comes across in a manner i like, or don't approve of, i remember them, which is why i remembered u.

i didnt say my conclusions were right/wrong, but incase they are wrong, (and u should get offended by then) then atleast i know i have excused myself ahead of time!

hahah @I-man, maybe because at some point in their lives, most sexually experiece guys will cheat for the heck of it.

not saying to accept it, but if it does happen, and u know about it, is there any guarantee that the next guy wont do it?

@Ruudie, i almost expected ur expected ur response, infact, if u'd have said anything else, i'd have been a bit surprised

if location was somewhere in Lagos mainland insteada' London, i'd be over @ ur place asking 4 ur sistas hand --- if she ain't already spoken 4 that is!

THANK GOODNESS --- there are still some very, very considerate ladies out there! we literally smash the rules & make all sorta' concessions just 2 please the chics & what do we get in return? NO CHANGE!

i agree girl ---

i LOVE football, she don't have 2 watch, all she gotta 2 is leave me alone with the Tv all weekends, mid-weeks & whenever there's a football match going on & in return, i'd probably do the dishes, laundry etc.
