Chemistry vs. compatibility
  • Compatibility refers to the similarities between lifestyles and values that form the relationship without too much forcing or compromising on anyone’s part.
  • Chemistry is that intangible, unspoken connection that results in feeling excitement and romance. 

In most relationships, both qualities may be present, but one will be of a higher priority than the other.
