Inspiration and growth are a big focus between the two of you. Your lover knows how to dream big; they look at the future as an interesting puzzle, one they want to solve soon and with a lot of creativity. They have this effect on you, too, helping you to see things with their same sense of humor and hope.
You two really are similar, when it comes down to your ideas and the ways your minds work. You've had a lot of life experience, and your lover is able to take all that you've learned through your experiences and put it toward some practical use. In fact, having successfully kept this relationship going this long, don't be surprised if you become more than lovers -- if you haven't already. You could end up starting a business together or writing a book -- something creative that involves your intellect and your partner's creativity, your problem-solving skills and their street smarts. Whatever it is, it'll definitely be a success, because how could it not? As long as you two stay focused on your optimistic sense of possibility and opportunity, you should be able to accomplish just about anything you put your minds to.
