Other people envy you and your lover, because the two of you are equally lively and bright and seem so well-matched. You're a sparkling power couple, both blessed with magnetism and drive. But those jealous of your pairing aren't on the inside and thus don't see the problems.
In truth, you and your sweetie have trouble finding common ground. Though you stimulate each other mentally, sometimes all the stimulation turns into irritation. You find it difficult to relax with each other, to go easily into that good night. You may have a lot of friction, or just a lot of awkward silences. The key lies in de-emphasizing your differences and playing up what you share in common. You both have an interest in politics, current events, debating controversial issues. Try to focus on these types of topics when you're with your sweetie, rather than devolving into discussions into what's wrong with your relationship, which have a way of turning sour fast. Oddly enough, even as you ignore your problems in favor of just enjoying one another's company, the problems will dwindle, and eventually disappear. Nice!
