a repeating pattern

You know how in the movie Forces of Nature, there’s a point where the Sandra Bullock character is responding to the Ben Affleck character, who’s just said how wonderful and free-spirited she is, and she says something like “all the things you love about me now are the ones you’ll want to change about me later”? Well, that’s only one of the bazillion reasons I identified with Bullock’s character in the movie (related to how much I disliked the ending), but it’s cropping up again. Big time. I really don’t understand why men are dazzled by me, bowled over even, and when things get to the six-month mark they begin trying to mold me into their version of The Perfect Woman (who, apparently, has fewer books, not nearly as many shoes, and a spotless bathroom sink).
