Often times we hear persons ask the question; Are you guys compatible? Or say, “you have to at least be compatible for it to work” but what does compatibility really means?
According to The Concise Oxford Thesaurus In clear A-Z form, published 1997; Compatible means well suited, suited, like-minded, of the same mind, in agreement, in tune, in harmony, reconcilable, having affinity/rapport, accordant.
The words used to define compatible here are so beautiful and that is exactly how a relationship should be, simply beautiful!
Couples should be suited for each other meaning for the least part, be the physique that the other is looking for.
Like-minded and in agreement, meaning you share the same views where important issues are concerned, like, how to raise your kids, which religion you join, how to manage your finances.
In tune and harmony, this means that you can sense when something is wrong with your partner and support him/her whether emotionally, spiritually or physically. You are not blind to signs that suggest that the other person is in need of you.
Reconcilable means that you do not stay mad at each other especially after a fight, lengthening the tension and hurt that creates discomfort and sadness in the relationship.
Having affinity/rapport means there must be a constant attraction between you two. Something that you can’t really put a finger on but it has the power to bind you and keep you coming back, just something about your partner that is worth the fight for, worth the infrequent discomfort, worth every bit of your time and attention, worth protecting and you two just simply seem to communicate well and get along.
Relationships are great, some liken it to a roller coaster, and others say it’s a journey but regardless of what you call it, everybody needs somebody and it makes sense that that somebody is right for you.
So, for all you single ladies and gentlemen out there, when you are searching for new “prospects” to be your mate, ensure you take these qualities in mind and truly examine if he or she is the right person for you.
If you are already hitched, then not to worry, you both can use these qualities to work on it and hence maximize your future happiness.
