The way that your lover naturally thinks and communicates is really a help to you in finding the right path into your future. You start to see them as a great sounding board for your ideas for your career, your interests and hobbies and whatever else you're thinking of pursuing further. You go to them for advice and you always want to hear their perspective on things, because to you, they're a kind of guide -- a sherpa that accompanies you up the mountain path of your life!
Even when neither of you thinks that you're discussing anything of great importance, you are still able to derive good things from hearing your lover tell their point of view. It might be as simple and profound as them setting a great example for you, for what kind of person you want to be. Their kindness, their intelligence, their thoughtfulness is inspiring to you, and you want to emulate their good qualities. Talking about books, movies, politics, spirituality, even TV shows is a fun and also beneficial way for you two to connect and to learn more about each other and yourselves. Most likely, this person makes a big impression on you, even if you make less of one on them.
