Proverbs gives several characteristics of friends and friendships.
I could keep going on with examples of how different we are, but I’m sure you get it.
The point is, we have very different views about a lot of things (one more example, sorry: he’s a Republican and I am a Democrat. And I think the reason we work well together is partly we’re such opposites – we teach each other new things all the time.
But after, the rose-colored glasses come off, the same traits we admired can cause a rub.
For example, a woman might view her fiancé as “laid back” but when married, she calls him “lazy.” Same trait, new perspective!
Is it better to date someone who is very different from you or should you be dating people who are just like you?
The answer to this question can get sort of confusing.And we probably didn’t marry the wrong person either.On the contrary, we probably married exactly the right person. My boyfriend is outgoing and friendly – he can walk into a room of my family members and start up a conversation with someone he just met.I, on the other hand, am shy and reserved and attempting to talk to his family members sort of makes me break out in hives.I am constantly learning about things I’ve never thought twice about from him and vice versa. As different as my boyfriend and I are, we still share the same goals when it comes to our relationship. We both like each other (that’s a pretty big one) and we both have the same thoughts on what a relationship should be like.
