My girlfriend and I literally just broke up after 3-4ish years just because she didnt agree with me dreading my hair. are you fuckin serious?! I guess if a relationship cant handle a simple change of hair then it isnt meant to be. Cant help but try to vent. sorry...and you all are very down to earth so this seems the place to be.

Can you believe this shit?!
yeah i guess i just dont understand...how im the selfish one? thats what im gettin blamed for. ive convinced my family to be alright with it. which was the hard part...or so i thought. but its done and over with now...no sense on dwelling on it. time to move forward and live my life how i think it should be lived....with potentially amazing dreads
nice! soo true!
Yeah... selfish for making your own choices about your appearance?! That's just nuts.
I don't get how your appearance is any of her business anyway. You're a person with free will, not a doll that she can dress up to her own tastes and get to do her bidding.
As SE said, at least you found this out now rather than later.
First off that sucks dudeI kind of went thru what you did but backwards, a long time ago when I had my first set of dreads they were backcombed, and at the time it was like my girl friend just liked me cause of my dreads, so for alot of reasons I cut them and we broke up.But now I have a girl friend and another set of dreads, and its kind of funny her hair is like 4 inches long and mines like a foot atleast in parts a little less then others. But she likes my dreads but sometimes gets annoyed with them especially when they get in the way of our fun.
I'm sorry you're going through this but honestly it's better off happening now then 10 years down the line. You have every right to express yourself however you choose and anyone that doesn't see that is definitely a control freak. Sending love & good vibes your way!
