Dating compatibility name
"If your friends can quickly bond with your new partner as if they were one of the crew, it’s a great sign you two are compatible." It stands to reason to invoke the old transitive mathematics rule (if A = B and B = C, A = C): If your friends are compatible with you, and they're also compatible with your partner, then you and your partner should be compatible too.
Shlomo Slatkin, who founded the Marriage Restoration Project with his wife Rivka, tells Bustle: "If you are fighting with your partner, it means that he/she is precisely the one for you." Obviously, this is only true to a point, and if you're settling in for your thrice-weekly fight, things are not OK.
"You fight, but then are able to reach a compromise," she says.
"Conflict gets a bad rap in relationships, but what makes a couple compatible is that even when they disagree, they’re able to move past their differences and come up with compromises that work for both partners."Like Slatkin, Chlipala says it's a good thing if you're in conflict from time to time, as long as things can be resolved in a timely fashion.
"When you are completely at ease, and can be yourself, when you find yourself compelled to tell them something you have never told anyone, you know you are compatible, and you know this relationship has an ease others have not," Martinez says. , tells Bustle: "You love to sleep next to this person and feel the warmth your bodies generate together, You find yourselves cuddling each other throughout the night.
You wake up in the morning happy to see each other, and because you're already naked, morning sex comes as natural as the sun rising in the East." Well, she does paint a pretty compelling picture.
But a fight here and there is normal — and actually preferable, Slatkin says."Upon exploration, you will discover that the conflict you are experiencing is tailor-made for you — meaning you will see that beneath the surface.
The issues you face with your spouse trigger your own personal past hurts and issues." So they give you the opportunity to work through your issues, and come out the other side all-around happier and healthier.

So spendthrift spendthrift = love, and miser miser = love, but as for spendthrift miser, well, ne'er the two shall meet. "Before online dating hit the internet, the majority of couples met through mutual friends," she says "If you share a lot of the same network, chances are you share similar tastes and values, considering you hang out with a lot of the same people." And this could lead to a happy, healthy relationship.
Plus, you already know lots of each other's friends, so you already have that part down pat. Yeah, it rules if you have some overlap in the friend department.
