We pick out partners in life based on a lot of things.
Are we attracted to them? Are their goals similar to ours? Are we people who can live together long term? Those are all important factors that we consider.
Once you move in together and begin your life, other things crop up. There are key factors that most people don’t consider. How about that as a couple you are expected to share a room. My husband and I are very compatible people, but not sleep wise. He wants to have a fan blowing on him at night. I want a nice thick comforter. He tends to hoard and have way too much junk in his room. I like my space feeling empty. It makes no sense for us to share a space. Another key factor is the setting on the thermostat. When you go on a date with someone you never ask what their ideal temperature would be. Would they rather be too hot or too cold? AC or heating? You just get together, move in and suddenly realize that you both feel there is a perfect temperature for the Hillsboro OR home. My husband and I strongly disagree on our ideal temperature. He definitely runs hot and would like to have the house around 70 degrees all year. When in doubt he feels it is necessary for cooling and no need to run the heater. I would like a 75 degree reading without using the AC hardly at all. The moment it gets chilly, turn on that heater, we live in Oregon for goodness sake!
