Calling Everyone Who Went Into A Relationship Trying To "Fix" Or Change Someone — What Happened?

·1 min read

We've all been there — falling for someone who would be *perfect* if they could just...get it together.

Netflix

Maybe they're a womanizer, or have problems with commitment. Maybe they even told you they don't want a relationship.

NBC

Or maybe they're a bit of a partier, and make a lot of reckless or even dangerous decisions.

MTV

Or maybe they lack the responsibility you're looking for and just plain refuse to grow up.

Maybe they're even a serial liar or an absentee parent, or just overall...not the best person.

ABC

Still, you think — maybe I can change them. Maybe they'll get better — more responsible, more into you, more committed.
