On one of my first dates with my boyfriend, the persuasive guy told me about his obsession with TV binge sessions and movie matinees. In the three years since, I've discovered it was all a bold-faced lie, merely a sly attempt to convince me we were compatible when it came to entertainment consumption. Granted, it took awhile for his true colors to show. Eventually, he just wasn't "in the mood" to be in a "crowded, dirty" theater, or he didn't want to spend the night "cooped up on the couch" watching episode after episode. The excuses piled up as I slowly felt more out of touch with pop culture. If you find yourself in the same situation, keep scrolling, and let's get through this together.
