Have you ever met a person that made you think “I’m really feeling this person, we have such great chemistry but we really don’t hold the same values or aspire to the same goals”? Or met someone that you both of your futures lines up perfectly but they were just “okay” and didn’t make your heart go flutter or create a spark inside you? Well what do you do in this situation? Which do you go for? The chemistry based relationship or the compatibility one? You might think that one of these answers is obvious, but it isn’t as easy as you think. Listen in and see what Jenn & I had to say about it!
Compatibility is based on common values and life goals, a high level of comfort with each other, shared experiences and the ability to have fun with each other. These are essential components for a lasting relationship.
Chemistry is about looks and body type, but it’s more of a gestalt thing. A person with moderately good looks can be irresistibly attractive if he/she has a great personality.
