I'm asking because the girl I am currently with has a different view than I do and I want other's input. I feel like, although we are very different, we can still work if we give each other what we need. We don't have to be the same person in order to be happy. She lives on a ranch and I am a city-guy. I like fast cars, she likes trucks. I like rock, she likes country.
Now, I don't feel that these different interests should set us apart.
I feel like, if anything, it's a benefit. It's interesting being with someone with different interests because I get to experience a different world. She's really into outdoors stuff and being in shape and I'm all about being indoors (just due to the Texas heat) and trying to make a buck sitting on ass in front of this computer at this forum. I like outdoors stuff, just not when it's a constant 105 degrees.
I feel like, no matter what our interests, it's about finding someone who makes you feel like you seek to feel. Someone that completes you and can offer you what you need in a relationship. She thinks we need to have all the same interests or it will fail.
She honestly doesn't see it working because we are so different but I can't put the right words together in a way to actually describe how I see it and how I feel it should be. She tells me her opinion and I just trip on words trying to tell her that I feel it's an emotional connection that it should be about.
What say you, Warriors?
