Does this whole discussion sound like a resounding rebuttal to monogamy, or what?
biggest thing is not to given away the royal jewels early in your relationship. don't be the one compromising all of the time while you are dating. unless you are prepared to accept that once you yield choice you don't get it back.
some people are happy being someone's lap dog the rest of their life. assuming you aren't, think about that in your dating life.
so, continue to go out drinking with your friends and don't always agree to dance with her. sometime you have to (and by virtue of sometimes will want to) make a sacrifice for something that she wants. But if you find this happening a lot, watch out.
same thing with clothes. she doesn't like your old t-shirts and sweatshirts? that's too bad.
and watch out for high maintenance women (or guys if you are female). nothing good can come of that.
