I wonder how other people are. My number one, happy adult-spot is wife, mom, friend with a splash of business on one side and a serious demeanor. My boyfriend is uber-business oriented during the day and completely off the wall goofy on his off time, which grates on my nerves because I am soooo serious. But I realize we both need a balance in these areas so we’re great for one another!
What about you? Are you opposites?

yes and no.
we are complete opposites in alot of ways: i’m creative, hes a bookworm. I’m super emotional, hes not one to show emotions. i’m a dreamer, hes painfully a realist. i’m extremely affectionate, him not so much. i like to plan out everything..hes more of a “things will work out” kinda guy. i’m patient, he is absolutely NOT.
But we are similar in alot of ways too: our silly senses of humor, we both love sarcasm, we are both incredibly loyal (to friends & each other), we are mostly homebodies but like to go out too, we both love our families and we have the same values (religious, and life in general)
we are a balancing act as well 😀

I would say we are pretty opposite on a good amount of things.
He’s serious and I’m usually not.
He’s very optimistic and I often assume the worst.
He’s more social and I’m more of an introvert.
He’s the most patient person I’ve ever met and I’m incredibly impatient.
He’s not very assertive in certain situations, although I am.

Yes and no! I think at our core we are so much alike. However when it comes to social situations I tend to show people my business side; my silly side only comes off with my friends and family and he doesn’t really care who sees his.

We are kind of similar, but opposite in some really useful ways! I don’t like talking to strangers/asking for help/etc. but he has no problem talking to anyone and everyone about anything. I’m more of a planner, while he’s more spontaneous. I’m a saver and he’s a spender. ANd so on and so on 🙂 I really think we fit well together and we balance out the extremes in our personalities.

We’re REALLY similar in a lot of ways. Which does mean we occasionally clash over the few ways in which we’re different. I’m more financially minded, he’s more into music and art. I’m more of a worrier about the big things, he’s more of a worrier about little details. He’s more loyal – I tend to drift away from people really easily.
But in terms of general personality / sense of humor / values and deep beliefs, we are really, really similar.

We’re complete opposites in many many ways. Physically: I’m short, He’s tall. I’m light featured, he’s dark. I’m more continent with my pets. He is a people person. He’s outgoing, I’m reserved.
However we connect on religion and politics. We each love to debate. We’re both homebodies

We are VERY different in many ways! I am very outgoing and bubbly, he is quieter and softer spoken. He’s patient and I am not so much. He is an excellent artist…and while I’m crafty and love DIY/scrapbooking/etc I can’t draw a stick person to save my life 😉
We are also VERY alike…we are both athletic, share a similar sense of humor, stubborn, sarcastic, nice and also look a lot alike!

We are eerily similar in many ways, which is great for us. We both have a strong need for a creative outlet, cleanliness and order, and share a taste of the “finer things in life” (good food and books, movies and wine). We share our spiritual beliefs. We have similar ideas about work and where it belongs in our lives, and the importance of family. We both need plenty of alone time and personal space, don’t like arguing, and are generally non-confrontational and peace loving.
We strike a balance between our personalities, just like any other couple; he’s much more socially outgoing and adept, I’m more serious and reserved, he can find value in any reasoning (must be his Psych degree!) and I tend to have firmer opinions. His easiness balances out my sharpness.
Basically, we “get” each other on a fundamental level, which fuels the sort of peaceful, rich, productive lifestyle we both want.
