I should just wait and see if he'll give in on his own instead of pushing him to do things...
Or . . . you could accept him the way he is?
Only you can decide if this particular issue is a deal-breaker for you. Everyone, of course, has their own deal-breakers, non-negotiable things that make a lasting relationship impossible. You shouldn't have to change to accommodate these kinds of issues. But neither should anyone else be required to change. A relationship, after all, should be about finding someone with whom we can be compatible. It's not about creating someone who matches our ideals.
Do you love him for who he is? Or do you love him for who you want him to be?
