As the old saying goes, opposites attract. That maxim stems from the idea that you're attracted to someone who's different from you because they add a little spice to your life and bring something new to the table. Practically speaking, you can learn a lot and become a better human being all-around by dating someone whose background and beliefs don't look like yours. But are some differences too big to overcome? Early s you're not compatible with your partner can come in many forms. Incompatibility can look like butting he about big things, like values and goals, or it can look like frequent disagreements about the little things, like how you make the bed or when you schedule date night.
When it comes to relationship incompatibility, love coach Susan Winter ly told Elite Daily it's a matter of "potential" versus "actualization. Actually making it work is matter of actualization. Focusing on one partner is the second part, which reveals whether they have the needed skill set for partnership ," Winter said. Whether you've had problems since day one, or they've just cropped up post-honeymoon phase , here are five early s you and your partner aren't compatible, and what you can do about them. Relationship coach Miku , who runs relationship coaching service Love Notes by M, says that if "one partner is more invested in the relationship than the other," it might be a of incompatibility.
Or, do you feel like bae goes all in for your birthday and Valentine's Day, while you don't feel super compelled to do the same? Take note. This imbalance may have even come into play in the very early stages of your relationship.
This is a behavioral trait that shows lack of respect," Winter told Elite Daily. Another you and your partner might be incompatible is if " your core values heavily contrast," Miku says, like your "views on monogamy [versus] non-monogamy, marriage, children, religion, and finances. But if you find that you're constantly arguing about the upcoming election or how you two live out your faith , you might want to re-consider your partnership. Likewise, if your partner wants to be in an open relationship when you're all about monogamy, or they're recklessly spending on your dime , or they just aren't as into the same priorities as you, it might be time to have some hard conversations.
One partner having a higher sex drive than the other is a fairly common occurrence, simply because of the fact that most people's libidos ebb and flow over time. It's unrealistic to expect that you and your partner will want to have sex the same amount of times, every single time, over the course of your entire relationship. That being said, if you find you or your partner don't want to initiate sex very often or at all, that's worth discussing.
More than just a of incompatibility, it can also be indicative of something greater at play. Emotional connections to sex, lack of intimacy or loss of trust with a partner, self-image issues, or boredom all can result in a lower interest in sex. Or, as Miku says, "You and your partner get into arguments with little to no resolve all or most the time. If anything, the bickering augments over time," Winter explained. This isn't to say that if your relationship starts on a rocky foot, it's going to be rocky forever.
Resources like couples' therapy exist to help couples get on the same , so don't be afraid to seek out professional help if you're struggling but still want your relationship to succeed. If you don't share a similar enough view of the future , Miku says that, too, may be a of incompatibility.
Maybe you want to get married and bae doesn't. Or maybe you want kids and that's completely off the table for your partner. Whatever the case, if you and your partner can't get on the same about important life decisions, you might be better off finding someone who is. No, not necessarily. You can work around some of these points of incompatibility. So, for example, maybe you and your partner can open up a dialogue about how to match your sex drives or how to better manage money, but there may be some things you just can't meet in the middle on.
As Miku points out, "One of the biggest dealbreakers in relationships is wanting or not wanting children. There really is no way around compromising this situation, because ultimately, one of the individual's desires will have to be disregarded in making this decision. Going back to the idea of potential versus actualization, ask yourself if you think your partner has the skill set needed to work on the relationship.
Even if you feel like they lack the "toolset" for the relationship , Winter explained, there's still a chance you can work past your issues. If they're motivated to be your partner, they will work to make sure they accomplish that goal," Winter said.
One solid way to go about reaching a resolution is couples' therapy. If you really do see yourself with your partner long-term — not just for the moment — then this is an option worth exploring. As is the case with relationships, both parties have to want to be there. Despite your differences, if you and your partner want to make it work, it is possible.
It just might take a little conversation, a lot of compassion, and practice. By Caroline Colvin. Search Close.Signs you are not compatible
