When getting into a relationship, things might seem to flow easily at first. You might also find out that you have a lot in common with the person that you are dating. However, as time goes on, it can become clear that there are some very distinct differences between you and your other half, especially when it comes to what you want to watch on television.

Now, if watching television is your way of relaxing after a long day, it might actually become an issue that the two of you want to watch different things. Why can't things be like they were in the beginning where the two of you would cuddle up on the couch and enjoy a movie? Why can't you agree?

This simple difference can lead to irritation and frustration when it comes to spending your downtime together, but it doesn't always have to do that. Just because you are into one show and he or she is into another, doesn't mean that the two of you have to fight. Why not compromise?

Maybe, one week, you can watch his or her shows and vice versa, or if the two of you really don't like each other's viewing options, why not find something that the two of you are both willing to watch? If you have tried both of these options already, and they have already failed, then the last thing to do is to watch different things on different television sets.

This doesn't have to be an issue. You could get one television set for the dining room and another for the living room, allowing the two of you to be close to one another while you enjoy your shows. That way, both of you can relax and unwind in your own way without creating conflict when it comes to television options.
