Just stay single & do your own thing! You go 18 years with your parents & teachers telling you how you should live. Isn't that enough?
Everybody thinks they need to be in a relationship, then they all think they need to get married, then they have to have children, then they wonder why they're miserable & where they went wrong. Humans are such mindless followers it makes me sick! Monkey see, monkey do, all the way! Just THINK FOR YOURSELF! And if they say that's "selfish", well,who really cares what anybody says? They got a word for everything!
Live YOUR life! Don't let anybody tell you what life to live.

Undersood and agreed. But you seem like that typical guy (it happened to me so I know from experience) that has goals and ambitions and then life happens and shit does not go the way you expect. But the good part is this: You can fix it and make your life what you want it to be. You just have to recognize your vices and crutches and eliminate them.
Think of it this way:
If a strange man was to walk into your home and threaten to hurt your significant other you would fight to the death to defend and keep her safe would you not? Well you are that guy right now, thats you!!!
And she needs that man she trusts and loves to protect her right now. Its up to you to decide which one she gets. Take care my friend and take advangate of it being New Years Eve and start anew.......... with her.

I hate to see this happen to good people. My friend actually went through something VERY similar. He was in a 4.5 yr relationship where he didn't "live up to her expectations". Thank goodness that hell is over for him. She was always trying to limit what he does in order to make her happy. He's a big fan of TF and Joes and actually had to sneak stuff into his collection. C'mon. My friend is 28 yrs old and she's trying to control him like that???
Don't get me wrong. I'm not saying dump her for the Joes. However, from what you're saying, it sounds like you feel as if you have to GIVE UP the things that MAKE YOU who you are. If that's the case, then you have to weigh the options.
"Are those things that important that you feel as if you're betraying who you are and what makes up who you are for the relationship?"
I wish you the best of luck and pray that the answer will come to you. My friend is having those post relationship speedbumps of missing her, but he is happier without her. It's understandable that you are torn between the options, having invested so much time in your relationship.
May your answer come to you soon, friend.

Even if you give up your joes for your girlfriend, become a firefighter, go to school, invest more of yourself in the relationship, and its all going wonderfully for you. Guys will always be immature in the eyes of women. Be it joes, comics, toons, games, golf, baseball, etc.... you name it.
Guys have an inner child. It's the Peter Pan Syndrome. Oh grow up! Stop watching football. I'm not saying be immature and reckless. But woman have the Wendy Syndrome. Women want to grow up faster. Feminists tell them to grow up and be the man. Remember Wendy wanted Peter to leave Neverland with her to well grow up.
Even if a guy does the right thing to please a woman, she will always see him as less mature than her. Find someone who shares your interests.

She needs to learn to accept the things that are you, and not make ultimatums. There might be some room to compromise (maybe you don't have to buy EVERY complete wave) but not the whole thing. You should be working with each other instead of demanding absolutes.
I'm married for nearly 10 years now to a wonderful woman who has never gotten the figure collecting thing but knows it's part of me. There are things about her I don't get, but we have a lot more we do get about each other that keeps us together.

There's no magic answer. I've been married for 15 years and we are still working on the balance between what we want for ourselves vs. what we need to do for each other...
