My relationship is an enigma to me.
On the one hand, we have similar tastes in many things, similar senses of humor, we're both on the bright side of the bell curve, etc. Plus, we have similar backgrounds, so we understand each other on some pretty deep levels (like facing abuse as children).
However, we both cope with our insecurities differently. I tend to lean to the passive side (letting things slide, being too nice in the hopes that others will be nice to me, not saying anything when she hurts my feelings, etc) whereas she leans more to the agressive side (overly hostile and defensive when I try to confront issues, fights mean alot, etc.)
So, while the good is really good, the bad is equally bad. Now, she has tried (and improved) with her agressive tendencies over the last five years that we've been together, and this gives me hope. However, the older I get, the less crap I'm willing to put up with, so, we might also end up breaking up or becoming one of those couples who bickers constantly.
I really have no idea what the jury's gonna say.
