I know most people advocate being yourself, but there are those who would willingly change so that the person they like will like them back. Has that ever happened to you? How exactly did you change? Was it for the better better or for worse?

Your ability to adapt and compromise is also a part of yourself. Everybody goes through that when they find that special someone, some just compromise more than they should, and others don't compromise enough.
For me...the changes motivated by exs' were:
my weight (30% body fat to 12% body fat)
my attitude (used to have depression but I've since learned to tell that condition to F off. I'm smiling 95% of the time now)
quit drugs (was a daily user, quit cold turkey 5 years ago)
much more open (looking back...I was a total closet case and blame my friends for not kicking my A for it)
just a much better person overall.
Everybody is constantly changing. Your character as a whole doesn't change too drastically, but every second that goes by is changing you. Every interaction with a person shapes your view of people in general (or specific if you're like that). Whether those changes are for the better or worse depends on the people we surround ourselves with:
Sensible people - Positive view
Pessimist - Negative view
more but...I just nodded off while typing this. Gnight. xD
