Ideally, you and your partner should see eye to eye on the most important things. You should feel as if your core values match and that your critical beliefs are pretty similar. If those things aren’t in sync, then you’re in store for a miserable and tumultuous relationship. But, also understand that you won’t agree on literally everything. Expecting that will also lead to a miserable relationship, simply because you’ll be disappointed every day. You are different people, after all. That’s part of what makes your relationship fun and dynamic. He compliments your personality and visa versa. But, what that means is that sometimes you simply will not agree on something. That’s okay—there are some things you just have to agree to disagree on. It won’t hurt the relationship.
That one friend
Maybe your boyfriend has a friend you just don’t like. You think he’s rude. He doesn’t really ask you questions about yourself or include you in the conversation. You don’t get him, at all, but he’s one of your partner’s best friends.
