The building blocks of a relationship rest on two simple words: compatibility and chemistry. Webster's dictionary defines these words for grammatical understanding. However, the deeper meaning behind them is only found through life experiences and contexts. Compatible: Adjective. Able to exist or occur together without conflict. Chemistry: Noun.
Compatibility and chemistry are mostly ignored by dating advice because they're things that can't be faked or changed. Instead, we spend most of our time studying self-improvement, presentation, and the technical mastery of social minutiae, all in an attempt to excel at the sales job of our romantic and sexual services to possible partners.
"The meeting of two personalities is like the contact of two chemical substances: if there is any reaction, both are transformed." ~C.G. Jung Everyone says it. They say chemistry is a must. I know I say it. But why do we say this?
Relationships never exist by themselves in a vacuum. When two emotional beings come together, they bring their own past experiences and expectations. Over time these expectations can strain a relationship and you may feel like your partner doesn't care because they don't act the way you think they should.
