Couples Corner: Complementing our Differences

What is interesting in couples is what made them attracted to each other. Similarities is one factor, like me and my husband, there's a lot to speak of the things common to the two of us.

There's also differences in each one, this I think is the interesting part.

To begin with, physically speaking, my husband is dark while I'm on the fairer side, he's tall while I'm short. This I guess was the first attraction between us.

He's into movies, while I'm not.
He's thrifty sometimes becoming stingy already, while I'm on the spending side.
He's more practical - functional while I'm more for aesthetics.
He is logical, I'm instinctive.
He is a mind person while I'm a gut person.
He is a quiet being, while I'm talkative.
He loves cooking, I don't
Patience: His short, mine long
He is not too keen in organizing stuff as long as it's on it's proper places
while I'm on the verge of having OCD!!!

I'm into details while he's result oriented

In spite of the difference and even what's common between us, who we are individually complements and completes the other, that I guess is the reason why we were made for each other.

Well said! that's the beauty of it, though we have some indifference with our spouses, that's how we know that we love each other despite of the fact that we're totally opposite on some things. boring naman kung masyadong compatible di ba? walang thrill, gusto ko yung nag kukulitan, or nagpipilitan. Ay, I forgot to include our skin color, hehehe. My hubby's is white, while mine is dark...
