Always remember that not all relationships you experience will be a pleasant one.Some persons maybe unfaithful, unkind, selfish. You can then find someone perfect for you and that is good. Compatibility plays a vital role to determine if a relationship is going to be a bad one or end up good. It is good to get to know someone more, to see if your values, morals, faith and belief are the same or even similar. Here you will get to know if he or she may be someone that you can live with and spend your entire life with. When you learn in a relationship to give and take and balance each other then a relationship can work. Please do not think a compatible relationship means that both of you have to be perfect. NO things can happen but how you both handle things and resolve your problems will make a difference.

A compatibility relationship does exist with many people. This may due to the similarity in values, morals, religions, a good communication and respect between each partners.
