    My gf watches The Bachelor...

    I love her and she let's me watch twelve hours of college football most Saturdays so I figure I'll let her have this. But I can't do it. I physically dread Mondays. If it was one hour I might have a chance, but making it two will end this relationship...

    Mine watches it too but I always do homework during it so it doesn't bother me that much. You can't say that 90% of men don't wish that they could be that guy.

    Get a second TV? Watch TV on your computer on channelsurfing.net? Do volunteer work on Monday evenings?

    I drink while we watch. It helps a lot. My wife also DVRs Young and the Restless.

    Ditto. I have learned that if you mock it enough you will get in trouble and be sent to another room though, which is good.

    Not a chance that I would sign up for such a process.

    Re: My gf watches The Bachelor...

    Man, your relationship was over before it started if you can't compromise.

    You'll be 'forced' to watch more mind numbing **** if your relationship progresses, but if you love her, you deal with it.

    You don't want to know half the crap I watch, as a married guy.

    My wife watches it...and she gets so mad at me when I make comments that are critical of that entire show! It is an absolute joke...it is as scripted as any show on tv!

    That is why it is important to have multiple televisions

    Re: My gf watches The Bachelor...

    Even though my girlfriend watches it sometimes, she readily admits it is some of the worst TV out there. So she doesn't force me to watch it (not that we ever have time to watch TV anyways...).

    Re: My gf watches The Bachelor...

    I assume it's not an option to just let her watch it if she wants to while you go do something else?

    Re: My gf watches The Bachelor...

    My boyfriend and I both hate The Bachelor and both enjoy watching college football. No compromise needed. It's great.

    The worst thing about the show is that he never ends up picking the one everyone thinks he should, so then everyone ******* about it for days.
