I like to hope that sharing an interest with someone doesn't come across as trying to change them, had she not liked it I wouldn't have forced it on her. And differences are good too of course, liking different things so you're not just copies of each other.
The only thing I would ask if she didn't like it would have been to respect that I like it and not belittle my taste in geek passions, which I think applies well across the board with everyone really.
