Cupid’s Advice:

In order for a relationship to have a chance at survival, both parties involved will need to have things in common besides mutual attraction. Personal goals, lifestyles, moral grounds and intimacy are important factors to consider. While having too much in common can lead to a very boring relationship, a healthy amount in each of you is at least 50%, leaving plenty of room to grow. To help you understand where you two stand, here are a few clues to look for:

1. You have unusual things in common: Many new couples have ordinary things in common and are mistaken that this means they are a match. A clearer sign is when you and your new partner have many unusual things in common. The more quirky habits or likes you two share, the better the relationship can grow.

2. “We” terms when times are bad: While all new couples will eventually think in “we” terms, the real clue is when you think this way when the chips are down. If one of you has a sudden problem and both of you think of it as a joint issue, you two are on your way to merging lives together. It is terms like these that will keep you two together through the hard times.

3. You finish each others’ sentences: Suppose you begin a sentence and your mate is able to finish it with little effort, then your relationship has a great chance of surviving. Being able to finish each others’ sentences shows that you both have more in common than not.
