My husband and I are similar in some ways; in ways of thinking and in our humor, what we like, etc. But there are ways we are complete opposites.

I sometimes think, “I can't believe we've been married for almost 9 years, how do we live together??” I'm sure all couples go through similar differences but sometimes I wonder how we do it.
Joe loves the heat; summer is his favorite time of the year and the hotter it is, the happier he is. In the cooler months, he will crank the thermostat to get warm.
In the meantime...I am dying. The hotter it is, the more miserable I am. I can't stand the thermostat being over 62 deg and if the temp outside is over 70, I crumble into a ball of despair. Ok, I'm being dramatic but pretty close.
Then there is the issue of noise. I have GOT to have noise (fan, air purifier, etc) while I sleep at night, I cannot sleep with dead silence. Joe, on the other hand, can't sleep with noise. Well, traffic and things like that are ok for him but “white noise” drives him nuts.
He likes to crank the volume while watching movies, I like it so-so. I'm just not a loud noise person, though some would argue that my MOUTH is loud, ha ha.
This and That
Joe loves fireworks. I have no use for them.
Joe loves parades. Yawn.
I am silly, he is serious.
So yeah............opposites definitely attract!! But we make it work!
