For those of us who came into cycling “after” we had been “married” or in a relationship for a long period of time there might be a reasonable excuse for such disagreements. Still they can be worked out. But for people early on in a relationship to have that kind of reaction that relationship is doomed. The GF is trying to establish herself as the Alpha dog and if the guy folds he will be unhappy for the rest of his life. You hear these same stories from Runners, Skiers, boaters, shooters and others that have these kinds of sporting hobbies or habits and they hook up with a non-believer. It simply isn’t worth the effort to save such a relationship. IMHO
