Dating compatibility name
When you have similar shopping habits, you’re less likely to fight over money and more likely to have an easier time together in a relationship." So spendthrift spendthrift = love, and miser miser = love, but as for spendthrift miser, well, ne'er the two shall meet. "Before online dating hit the internet, the majority of couples met through mutual friends," she says "If you share a lot of the same network, chances are you share similar tastes and values, considering you hang out with a lot of the same people." And this could lead to a happy, healthy relationship.Plus, you already know lots of each other's friends, so you already have that part down pat. Yeah, it rules if you have some overlap in the friend department."You fight, but then are able to reach a compromise," she says."Conflict gets a bad rap in relationships, but what makes a couple compatible is that even when they disagree, they’re able to move past their differences and come up with compromises that work for both partners."Like Slatkin, Chlipala says it's a good thing if you're in conflict from time to time, as long as things can be resolved in a timely fashion.
Take that, haters who secretly thought you'd never find the perfect, head-over-heels, drunk-in-love match of the gods! "If you’re both bargain hunters, you’re more likely to be compatible than if one of you is a spender and the other a saver," New-York–based relationship expert and author April Masini tells Bustle. Yeah, that sounds about right."Money is a big deal in relationships, and shopping is a daily or weekly event, whether it’s just buying gas for the car, or food shopping, clothing shopping, shopping for a new car, a new condo or new furniture. A lot of friends in common is a sign of mutual compatibility, life coach Kali Rogers tells Bustle.
And that is A-OK."A big sign that people are compatible to me is what I would call 'acceptable differences,'" Rob Alex, who created Sexy Challenges and Mission Date Night with his wife, tells Bustle.
"These are differences that are not dealbreakers, but will add lots of conversation to your together time." Acceptable differences, acceptable differences … "If you are daring someone and they enjoy doing a certain activity that you have never even tried, but are curious about, that is one of these differences," he says.
Instead of feeling like you are changing everything up for them, you can just chill together, and "your love styles match up," as she puts it."It's great when someone looks at their partner's gifts as a sign of affection and their partner understands receiving gifts as a sign of feeling loved," she says. The same goes for "physical touch, verbal affirmations, and having things done for you." If you're on the same page here, and you can both "do you" in harmony, then you are good to go.
Yup, conflict is great — and it's even better when you can resolve things calmly, relationship coach and therapist Anita Chlipala tells Bustle.
