@Angela, thank you for bringing sacrifice (or, to spin it another way, compromise) into the equation.

@Grogan, well put. I suppose I would be hard pressed to find myself in a relationship where that magnetic pull hasn’t changed over time, but I would also be lying if I said any of my past relationships (some of them quite long, the most recent 4 years) had seen that gravitational force rendered null. Of course, 4 years is really a very tiny fraction of time…

@Sarah- yes! This is brilliant. I think the fact that this relationship I’m in is also a long distance one has brought up another perspective on compatibility, as it’s often extremely difficult to maintain your typical routine when the only way you can interact is over a cell phone or through Skype. I think we’d only have a true understanding of the extent of our compatibility if we are able to interact face-to-face on a regular basis. However, this, I’m afraid, is not an option for another few years.
