I've never been in this situation before.
Before I begin, I must say I usually do not pursue men who do not like natural hair, but this is different. He and I had a friendship for a couple of years before taking things a step further. He never expressed his dislike for natural hair until AFTER we decided to become a couple.
He says, "Well, I support it", but at the same times only think natural hair is good for the beach and pools
then goes on to say, "I like wavy hair, but nothing past that." To him the only hair that looks "neat" and "professional" is hair that is either straightened or pulled back.
I refuse to straighten my hair because:
1) I'm not heat damaging my hair.
2) If I am going to straighten on a regular, I may as well go back to a relaxer.
3) I like my curls
Ya'll, I'm getting annoyed and frustrated.
I'm thinking about walking away and saving our friendship.
