I tried watching sci-fi and action packed stuff, but I just don't like that genre at all. So do you think less of a girl you're on a date with who you don't have tv shows and movies in common with? How do I avoid these conversations from falling flat when I start listing off my favorite tv shows and movies that are definitely geared towards women more so than men?

Just stand up to what you like and if it's someone who respects you, he will also respect your different movie/show tastes. But don't lie, be confident and say what you think. It's all good and if it should be a deal breaker for him, well then he wasn't a good fit for you0
I think that’s totally fine. If you don’t see eye eye in the beginning anyways, then it could be a deal breaker and better to get it done and over with quicker. Me personally I don’t get sci-fi movies or like superhero movies much at all all. And you sound perfect and I’d rather bond with someone I was into over a chick flick, or rom com or hallmark movie or something else anyway! I mean I like action, horror, comedy, adventure and movies like that too but I could always watch those on my own time if she wasn’t into it.0
You can only like what you like. But it would be interesting if you listed some movies he might like also.
When I was young, me and my ex both liked, these movies;0
What Girls & Guys Said
You should listing chick flicks and he better not know the movie story or you are dating a mini-you 😎0
If I ask a girl about movies, I EXPECT her to reel off a list of chick flicks.10
It depends. If you ever want to be ble to go to the movies with him then maybe soft peddle it. Too much chick-flick/rom-com can become too stifling. Imagine sitting through a "Rambo-thon" & you'll have a similar reaction as would he when confronted with too many chick-flick,
Just an opinion0
Be open about what you like. It's good to have some things in common, but also to like different things as well. Maybe he'll surprise you and will have seen some of them himself. Don't feel you need hide your personality for him to like you. If you do, he's not right you.
This advice does not apply if you like Elf. Keep that to yourself.1
Seeing as I quite enjoy chick flicks, this would not be an issue for me. Don't ever pretend to like something you don't it be something you date but to please a guy. Be yourself, and for the right guy that will be perfect. You want someone who will be into you for you, not fall for a fake persona.0
He asked, and why would you alter your answers to try and suit what you think he wants to hear? Last time you checked, you WERE still a chick, right? LOL You like what you like. If he ends up being soooooo upset by your choice of flicks, he's probably not the guy you want anyway.0
Never watched a chick flick before with a girl, but the idea sounds kind of fun, it's something different for the guy probably aswell, so I don't think it'll be a problem at all.0
ALWAYS BE YOURSELF.
Relationships are a form of play and relaxation to help get away from work.
But, if you have to put on an act to be in a relationship, that's just more work.0
There is no point lying, if your answers bother them, it wouldn't have been much of a relationship. JMO!0
just be yourself :) no need to lie about what movies you like. if the convos fall flat just because of that, you guys won't get along anyway.0
I think its safest to name one from every genre. I tend to talk more about horror comedy, rom coms and action films0
If that’s what you like then that’s just what you like. I’ll always say to be 100% yourself on dates. The right guy is going to receive it well, while the wrong ones will think otherwise.10
We expect you to like chick flicks, not a big deal at all. Just don't expect me to like them.0
Be yourself ! You likes are a part of who you are and you want to find someone who loves you for love0
Be honest with yourself and him. I honestly enjoyed several romantic comedies over the years with my wife. Some of which have been listed by others.0
is 500 Days of Summer on your list?0
Honesty is best. Watch with him and he should watch with you. If y'all can't do that, then try something else.0
Be honest. Be yourself. He should love who you are no matter what his opinions on chick flicks are. You don’t need to be identical in interests to like each other and get along.0
Just be honest! Don't lie to him, just tell the guy what you like when he asks! Hell, he might like some of those movies too. I don't like all of them, but I love Clueless0
Yes that’s perfectly fine, we might like some of them too. For instance I love Mean Girls, 50 first dates, Legally Blonde, Miss Congeniality, and sometimes watch Mama Mia with my sister.0
Good q. I like it.
I don't think you should change your answer if your true answer is this. They won't be too keen on the changing.
Instead of just listing the titles, give a bit of a reason for why, and be specific with each movie. Reasons are important. They add detail, depth, and give the other person something more to go on. Besides, they might have their own preconceived ideas, and you might expand their minds a bit. But mostly it's about revealing aspects of your personality, so that you slowly learn about each other, who your authentic self is.
And then when they list theirs, try to be open-minded. There are lots of "chick flicks" and "guy movies" that are great crossovers. I'd also encourage you to check those out. Not the action and superhero ones, if you don't want, but the dramas, that really get inside characters. Those can be illuminating.
