You have an unusual connection. You might not be attracted to each other right off, or you might just not be exactly each other's types, but you warm up to each other gradually. Over time, as in most relationships, your bond deepens and as you get to know each other, you grow to appreciate and respect each other more and more.
After a while, you might find out that your initial resistance to getting deeply involved may have been right after all. There is something between you that isn't quite right, and it's hard to pinpoint what it is. Your lover finds you to be just a little bit too different, too original, too unpredictable, and your differences grate on their nerves and prevent them from feeling fully attracted to you. You relate to each other with your differences standing as a wall between you, or a filter that you can't help but look at each other through. At base, these differences between you are simply the truth of two people, trying to be themselves while merging lives in a romantic partnership. You each have to allow your partner to be the individual that they truly are, even if you think some of their choices are strange or incomprehensible. Tolerance is needed if you want the relationship to work; otherwise, you might both end up feeling misunderstood or criticized by the other.
