    Is there really any relationship where, if your truthful, that doesn't happen? But when all is said and done there is always compromise and if there isn't it is doomed to failure.

    His negativity makes me just more positive. I did not read all the Pollyanna books for nothing when I was a pre-teen. 😀

    - Ales = 1
    ___________

    + Ales 1,551

    Mrs. Positive Ale wins convincingly!!

    If you have been together long enough, he really needs you, in some sense, and vice versa.

    Maybe we are lucky, when we can't live with the person we can't live without.

    My wife is definitely on the positive side. Always sees the best in people and things. I tend toward what I call being practical and realistic.

    Perhaps I should broaden my view. 🙂

    They say that what first attracts you in a new partner is what eventually annoys you the most. Is that anyone's experience?

    Not in my case. What attracted me in the first place just gets hidden from view after the courting is over.

    My wife is irrepressibly social and (for example) loves to celebrate birthdays. I join in grudgingly and always have a great time. (edit: 29 years so far)

    I think that is very typical of the differences between men and women.
