Today, my boyfriend confessed that he hates horror films. Our relationship was born out of our 'love' for horror films. I have endured 3 years of watching films that absolutely terrify me only to find out he doesn't like them either. FML

& this is why you don't start any kind of relationship with lies... just be honest! If they're worth it, they like you for you & not just your interests.

That's a story for the kids..."now when you see someone you're attracted to, don't be afraid to lie about you're interests, you never know where it could take you"

So let me get this right, you have spent 3 years of not communicating a simple thing as not liking a certain type of movie genre....if you can't communicate a SIMPLE desire how do you communicate the big stuff like SEX.....I am pretty sure you are having sex all a waste when you have a voice...

How do you know OP doesn't have a great relationship and this is something they will laugh about when they're in their old age? Nothing wrong with small/white lies.

ugh gross romantic comedies are the movies you watch once then forget the name of they are the one night stands of the film industry whereas if you watch a truly glorious horror flick (not the crappy ones like insidious and paranormal activity) then you remember it for years

Agreed with 52. I told one girl I dated about the "Romantic Comedy Formula." After two more movies, she realized I was right, and that was the end of that. ;)

No, Cali has a point. Why would you lie about your interests just to impress someone unless you're that desperate for attention? It's like that other FML about the girl who told a hot guy she was vegetarian while eating a steak. Don't do stupid stuff like that and you won't get into these situations. Just be yourself and if they like it, great; if not, too damn bad.

Kind of weird that your entire relationship would be based on a live of horror films...there should be more to a any case YDI for not being honest from the beginning.

She said it was "born" out of it, not based on it. Based on it would suggest it's the reason they are still dating. How the heck could it be based on it if they both hate it?
Of course, this also begs the question as to how it could be born out of it, but oh well.

OP, that sucks for you.
As a side note, quality horror films are the best!

Hmm, I can perfectly imagine a good relationship being born out of a similar love for horror movies...

*OP walks into a video store where she sees an incredible fancy guy*
OP: Hi.
Future boyfriend: Oh, hello.
OP: What movie do you got there?
Future boyfriend: *insert random title of a horror movie*. It seems to be very good.
OP: Yeah, I've heard that too. Would you like to go to my house and watch it together?
Future boyfriend: That would be great!
*relationship is born*

...See? But it's a little bit silly to keep pretending for three years.

This seems like a fun game.

OP: *Walks into video store*
Future boyfriend: Ohai. Do you like horror fil-

Relationship is born.

*SirEBC bows*

Yes but...if they both hate horror films, that scenario just doesn't seem plausible. Then again, how it could even happen that a relationship is born out of this doesn't seem to make much sense either...

  VeganVampyre  |  26

I guess it's possible that one of them was looking at a horror film to see if they wanted to try watching it, or maybe for a friend or something, and the other one was like, "oh that looks like a great movie" to start a convo. And then they both started lying their asses off to impress each other with how much they looovvee horror films. :P
