Everyone has heard the saying, but is it true? Some experts say it isn’t accurate if looking for a successful, long-term relationship.*
There can be an initial excitement when meeting someone with different life experiences, interests, and beliefs, but after the curiosity has waned, what is left? I don’t believe, from my own experience, it is sustainable for a lasting relationship.
Recently I wrote about winning a million dollars. I posed the same question to The Boyfriend, wondering if our answers would align. They did. Perfectly in fact. Very little would change in his life and, as he put it, “I would return to work on Monday.” I sat back in my seat, breathed a little easier, and relaxed. Of course he would give me this answer. We are compatible in so many ways and it is one of the many reasons the relationship works so well. He’s actually the most compatible man I have dated, with our few differences being complementary to the other.
Opposites can initially attract.
But compatibility lasts.
I hope to prove the latter statement to be true.
For Song of the Week I am sharing Ingrid Michaelson’s song “You and I.” This isn’t the official video. I think it is an adorable video for this great song, which ties in with the idea of what to do with a million dollars.
