What to do when partners are not interested in food and prefer processed junk?

I am extremely passionate (to the point of obsession; hence my spending hours on Chowhound and other food websites) about delicious yet nutritious food, always attempting new recipes, craving never-tasted before exotic flavours that are healthy and varied. My boyfriend, on the other hand, although he eats whatever I make for dinner with various degrees of satisfaction (he praises me enough as he how important food is to me and how much effort I put into every single meal), would be happy with processed rubbish every day of his life, 'filling the gap' rather than lusting after food as I do. I know I won't change him nor would I want to do so but I can't help feeling rather frustrated about it...Has anyone got a similar problem? Have you found any coping mechanisms that you can share with me? Thanks in advance!
