What would you have done if you were dating a web designer who has no other interests besides computers?

I am a 39 year old divorced mother and a wildlife biologist. I am currently dating a guy who talks to me about computers all day long, and expects me to memorize everything he says. I would like to talk to him about something else, like animals, travel, art, music, and yoga. Whenever I try to change the topic of conversation, he gets angry at me and calls me stupid.

  • What an ass! I really don't have anything to add to that, but I know that if ANY adult that was engaged in any relationship called me "stupid" because I changed the subject, that person would probably not be around much longer in my life. Sounds like he has little to no respect for the things that you find interesting.

  • Well, that is a little harsh. A relationship has to be 50/50. You listen to him and he listens to you. By him calling you stupid, I am afraid he has already failed my relationship test. That's a sure sign that verbal abuse probably comes easy to him. I would probably run. That's not a good way to start a dating relationship, let alone one that has marriage potential.

  • He's a jerk. Why waste your time with him? What drove you to decide to date him in the first place?

  • I think I'd find a new boyfriend sweetie! If he has no interest in anything you actually like, then what's the point. KWIM?

  • He sounds like a jerk. I couldn't date someone whose only interest is computers, especially since I have like NO interest in computers. And if anyone I was dating called me stupid I would be done with him right then!

  • Seriously? Leave him. He calls you STUPID. You can do better. What are you going to do when he hits you the first time?

  • He sounds like he may have Asperger's. Dump him anyway.

  • I'd be bored to death, as well as offended that I was being called stupid beause I don't share the same interests. I'd find another boyfriend, maybe someone in the same field as yourself.

  • If he's calling you stupid, you don't need to be with him.
