Does everyone need compatibility in a relationship?

I feel like I'm in the minority... I tend to develop feelings for guys that are my polar opposite. I don't really require an arseload of compatibility. I just need to feel love, respect, patience (from both sides) and I'm set lol... 馃槵

But I guess I'm weird. Just like how I'm apparently weird for only being interested in one guy at a time. 馃

Hubs and I are polar opposites. I sometimes wonder how we survive each other but I鈥檝e learned that our differences compliment each other and keep us balanced.

[@381079,JupiterDreams] Not always. Sometimes I want to smother him in his sleep. But he kills bugs and fixes stuff...so there鈥檚 that.

[@6912,Pinkstarburst] Aw bahaha
opposites work out

I don't think that's weird at all.馃グ
Do humans ever have total compatibility? Maybe only if someone is a people pleaser or 'yes person.' Seems like it would be like stagnation, no growth or stimulation, in a way.

[@1173,Magenta] True, true...

I need some. We don't need to be identical; it's fine if I'm quiet and he's more outgoing, it's okay if we don't share all the same interests, but we need some basic compatibility otherwise we're just going to end up irritating and frustrating each other.

Compatible people last though 馃槼

It鈥檚 being able to get along and want to be around them.

[@527461,Teggy] I think I get along with most people 馃ズ

There are no rules. Peyote who are different sometimes compliment each other more than people who have a similar personality. You just have to go for it and see.

Opposites do attract, but I also know that one can be attracted to someone who is opposite or similar enough to be incompatible.
JupiterDreams26-30
[@329500,uncalled4] That's true too 馃尯

Thats not wrong. Its just you. Focus on yourself first. Once you love yourself you will feel worthy of what you deserve.

Yes we're attracted to the opposite but after a few bad relationships with with those you'll realize what u need is different from what u want.

Love respect patience

Expecting all the above from a polar opposite is already asking a lot.

[@1157925,HopelessGuy] Those are just basic human qualities though haha

Not trying to be a smart aleck here but it seems that some degree of compatibility is required at some level for a relationship to thrive.

Now, I've assumed a healthy growing, stable relationship. There's plenty of relationships that aren't that.

[@841775,Budwick] No worries! I understand :)
