Why is it we hear the strains of 'Green Acres'? Something about the pair of you is as mismatched as that odd couple on the old television show. One of you is uptown, the other downtown, or it could be that you lack a certain commonality of thinking -- perhaps you don't share values?
Whatever the problem is, it's causing a culture clash between you. One of you views the other as impractical and indulgent; one of you looks at the other as being conceited and megalomaniacal. Who's right? You both are, in a way. These qualities do exist in each of you, but in reality it's your reaction to them rather than the qualities themselves that's creating a disruption.The answer? Tolerance and gentleness. Consider your sweetie's finer qualities: a quick mind, generosity, a certain largeness of spirit, and enough personality to fill a room with sparkle and fire. Such a smashing person is a rare find indeed -- it would be silly to throw away all you have in a fit of pique. Try to be more accepting of your partner's failings, and don't play them up. If you can learn to treat your sweetie with kindness, you may start a new trend.
