For me it's being compatible, same dislikes and likes, hobbies, attitude in life, food, and principles. So even we don't talk often, we still knows that we understand each other more.Seldom would we question each other, and argue. Have a nice day to all of you!

If you ask me my friend I would prefer someone compatible, rather someone who is probaly what I am not - which I surmise you have used the term "complement" to mean. Complement as a possible partner is welcome only if you feel you love some characteristics that are not yours, but you long that it were there in you. Otherwise I would bet on and vote for compatibility.I often wish that there were more means, methods and measures to check compatibility that are more or less unfailingly reliable. Ask someone who is tired of making elastic adjustments to markedly different personalities you would get this answer.

Hi GADSHISUNU, what can I say more. But still believe in being compatible with your partner. So you could easily understand each other. Have a nice day to you!

n30wing, man, I am living it day in and day out. More so because in India marriages are sacred and seldom broken on not-so-important "incompatibilities". What is tiring is the infinite amount of "adjustments" one needs to make. And sometimes the "adjustments" have a monetary cost element too.An affordable effort cannot and will not be grudged. But if you are pushed too much and so much that you pant in exhaustion-- well, the one thing that eggs one on is the other panting you know where makes it all interesting.! But often you also want to wear the pants! Thanks a lot for marking best response, friend!

I also believe differences hold relationships together.. but personally I prefer someone who also believes in the same value and principles as I have. Honesty is also important in a relationship. :)

Hi cecillecarmela, well there is still differences, but there is something that you have in common one way or another. Have a nice day to you!
