My boyfriend and I have very different personality types.
He’s an extravert, so he’s always asking me things about people that I can almost never answer, especially any question that begins with the word “where.”
I’m an introverted woo-woo woman, so these tangible details rarely concern me.
Here’s a typical exchange:
ME: “I met the coolest lady online today. We talked about all kinds of spiritual stuff.”
BF: “You did? So where is she from?”
ME: “The internet.”
BF: “Yeah, but where does she live?”
ME: “Inside my computer. Which part of this are you having trouble with?”
BF: “Sigh. Why do I bother? Seriously.”
ME: “That’s what I say when I pick your socks up off the floor every day. You don’t seem to have an answer either, so I guess we’re even. Oh, and feel free to ask me WHERE the hamper is. Because that one I do know.”
And then we hug. And everything is fine.
Because you just can’t fail to get along when you’re hugging all the time, personality types regardless.
This is my secret for relationship success. It really is!
That, and splitting the apartment down the middle into The Monkey Menagerie vs. The Sock-and-Pet-Free Zone.
Hey, whatever works. I’m a practical gal.
