Is having a spark and sharing wild chemistry enough to make a relationship last? While fairy tales might want us to believe so, the truth is it takes a lot more than that. Most of all, longevity takes compatibility. True love needs more than just sparks, no matter how hot and heavy those sparks are. If you're wondering if you're compatible with your partner, you've come to the right place.
Back to those fairy tales! While Cinderella might have found her happiness in the eyes of a guy she had just met, in real life, things work a bit differently. There are no knights in shining armor or princes randomly wandering around on their stallions, and girls are not princesses who wait around for a handsome stranger to save them—at least most of them aren't.
In the real world, no two people are a perfect match by default. It's normal and expected to experience difficulties and to question your relationship, especially as you get to know your partner better and start noticing the differences between the two of you.
In some cases, opposites attract, while in others, couples share tons of interests, but what all long lasting, loving couples share is one thing: compatibility. It can happen between two people who are the complete opposite of one another, just as it could happen between those who feel they are like twins. How about you and your partner? Are you compatible? Are you ready to find out?
