I've been chatting with a cute girl lately. Unfortunately, when we were discussing our favorite writers, she said she didn't like Shakespeare. I was immediately put off. Should I continue to talk to her? I really can't imagine being in a relationship where I can't quote the rhyming couplets of Richard II.
I've actually been in the same situation with my gf about 3 years ago, but I eventually figured out how to solve this.
What you should do is to TRICK her into liking Shakespeare. Start by getting close to her and get to know her. Learn her favorite musicians, moviemakers and authors, and make sure to write down a list of all of them. Once you think you're ready, start misattributing Shakespeare works and quotes to these figures.
