For me that's showing interest in what I am interested in even if you don't like the show. You don't like it and might even hate it but you will make a "sacrifice" anyway and watch it. It can be sort of a bonding experience too, and you can talk about the show, etc. Of course that should be mutual and work both ways, I would think males would want that same interest too. I like to watch sports, I guess most guys don't care if women watch sports with them.

It goes further than that, many guys don't want women to watch sports with them.

Thats a generalization, from my perspective its about not wanting to watch with someone unfamiliar with sports who's gonna sit and ask a lot of questions. I had a male roommate years ago who was worse than any woman I've met to watch sports with, it was a painful experience trying to watch a football game with him in the room.
If a woman understands the sport and want to watch, I have no problem, but I don't wanna be watching the AFC championship game and get bombarded with questions like "Why did he do that?" "How come that happened?" "Whats that yellow flag for?" and the like. And its downright embarassing when a grown man asks those questions.

Well I know guys who aren't into sports, and I don't care if they know nothing about them . I don't know about all the technical aspects but I can still appreciate the game and enjoy watching-I know the most about baseball. And you don't have to know the rulebook inside and out to be able to rag on A Fraud

I don't understand that reasoning. IMO, it's good and healthy to have separate interests - why would you sit there and pretend to enjoy something you don't for the sake of your SO? And why would you expect your SO to do it for you?

My ex said that I "ruined" baseball for him, when I got into it and became more enthusiastic and knowledgeable than him.

I rarely watch TV. When I do, the shows I watch tend to be unisex.

Wow. Why do some females have the need for their choices in television to be validated by the men in their lives?

I see it less as a need for validation and more for a desire to share something they enjoy in their lives.

Everyone needs to follow the Hewson household TV formula to be happy:

Number of people living in household +1 = number of televisons required in household to keep the peace.

Yes I know people need to have separate interests. I really can't believe the leaps in logic I don't need my choices validated by anyone, I usually watch all my shows alone anyway.

I just happen to think that once in a while you should do things that you really aren't all that interested in as part of a relationship, it's part of the give and take of a relationship. That doesn't mean I think it should be suffocating with no separate interests.
