I have a boyfriend and we've been together for around 7 months, but we both love the same things, we are into movies but he was such a horror fan before he met me but I got into the genre when I started talking to him, I'm in film school and I've loved films my entire life but now, since I have someone to share this passion with, I feel like I'm copying him for liking horror and my mind tricks me into thinking I only like these things because of him, only because he was the one who introduced me to the genre, now I can't really tell what I like and what I don't, if I'm doing this for myself or because I want him to find me more interesting. I surely don't like horror because of him, but my mind makes me think I do and I have a hard time deciding what I like or not, we spend a lot of time together and I love that I just wanna keep my individuality a bit more so I don't feel guilty for liking the same things as him, I just don't know how.

It's perfectly normal to affect each other while you're in a relationship. It's healthy and there is nothing wrong with that. However, it's also healthy to keep your individuality as well. Do you remember the things you enjoyed doing while you were not in a relationship with him? If yes, then you should keep doing them, no matter if he likes them or not.0
