Everyone is stubborn when they believe they are right.
It doesn't matter whether you are male or female.
Having said that the only person we can control is ourself.
Therefore if you are trying to get someone to change you are likely to become frustrated or disappointed and they are likely to become resentful of you. People change when THEY want to change. Ultimately we all are searching for someone who loves and adores us for who we are.
Life is short! You can either waste your time trying to get someone to do what you want them to do (against their will) or you can find someone that (naturally wants what you do). If you want an apple but buy an onion instead, whose fault is that? The CHOICE is YOURS!
