For a pair of eccentric people, you two certainly had a hard time finding common ground. You originally connected because of a shared love of the unusual -- you both had a taste for something out of the ordinary. It takes guts to live an eccentric lifestyle, so you respected each other for your boldness, and saw a stubborn, resilient streak in each other that you mutually admired.
Yet at the same time you couldn't connect on a deep level. It felt as if you misunderstand each other, like you both said the wrong thing at the wrong time. It seemed like you wanted to draw closer when your lover wanted more space, and vice versa.Things could have improved if you'd focused more closely on what you shared rather than what you lacked. What was it that made you happy and carefree -- music? a hobby? your career? Finding an interest that you could have indulged in together would have helped. The energy you worked up on your shared hobby would have extended to the rest of your life, as you made common friends and shared in common experiences. It is these very shared experiences that help you feel a little less eccentric and a little more accepted.
