  • I think you need to be compatible for it to last. If you are just too different you won't be socially cohesive. Too much the same and perhaps it will not be complementary enough.

I have been more free and go-with-the-flow in my life while he has been more straight-laced and focused but I think we respect each other and seek something of the other each for ourselves. I needed more structure in my life while he needed more relaxation.
