When you have chemistry with another person, it's an intoxicating feeling. But even having tons of chemistry doesn't necessarily mean you have the building blocks for a real, successful relationship.
What Is Chemistry?
Ever wonder why two people who seem like polar opposites have a successful, long-term relationship, while others who seem like the perfect match on paper can't get along at all? Chemistry has a lot to do with that. Though it's not everything, chemistry can be a strong predictor of success in a relationship. Chemistry attracts people to one another — even if they seem completely out of sync in other ways.
Feeling those telltale butterflies in your stomach, feeling heat when you exchange a glance, and simply feeling good in the other person's presence are all signs that you have good chemistry. If you're happy in their presence despite whatever else you have going on, and they feel the same, there's certainly shared attraction. A love tarot reading can point out people in your life with whom you might share some unexpected chemistry.
Chemistry can help jump-start any relationship. When you have great chemistry, often you'll feel like your partner is the only other person in the world. Chemistry can be the key to keeping a relationship going for years to come. However, it's not the only thing that's important.
Chemistry vs. Compatibility
People tend to use chemistry and compatibility as interchangeable terms to describe the dynamic between the people in a relationship. In reality, they're not the same thing. Though both describe an intangible connection, it's important to understand the differences between the two.
When your values and lifestyle choices naturally align with how another person lives their life, that signals compatibility. It happens naturally and can't be forced, and it's a great indications of the potential for long-term success between two people.
People who are truly compatible share similar values. Educated people tend to go for other educated people, religious people tend to end up with other religious people, and the list goes on. Even if you get along wonderfully with someone, it's hard to build a relationship long-term with someone whose moral values oppose yours enormously.
The Good and Bad of Chemistry
On the other hand, chemistry is that emotional connection you have when you're in each other's presence. You make each other feel better simply by being together. You'll feel like no time goes by when you're up all night talking.
But there's a downside to this. Sometimes you're spellbound by this intense chemistry and disregard how the other person is treating you. You can get trapped in the good feelings chemistry creates and ignore some really unhealthy components of a relationship. An online psychic reading can help you figure out if you have both chemistry and compatibility with another person.
That way, you'll be able to build a strong and healthy relationship. In order for a relationship to work, you need to have chemistry along with being compatible and respecting each other's needs.
