Your partner has always relied on a conservative approach to getting things done: They believe in hard work and discipline, in setting goals and then making a plan to reach them. That method has worked for them in the past and it has taken them where they are today. But all those good, well-founded ideas are shaken up, because in you, they've met someone who flies in the face of convention!
The two of you are like opposite sides of a coin when it comes to your goals and ambitions in life -- they want to follow a carefully planned path, while you like to lead with your gut, following where the impulse moves you. You're not afraid of plans changing on a whim; spontaneity is your watchword. Getting involved with someone who has such a conservative, traditional approach could be quite an adjustment. And for them, having a lover who operates so much on idealism and rarely on experience or knowledge might become really irritating! But if you try, you two could stand to learn a lot from each other. Spontaneity can often lead down blind alleys to a dead end. Adopting some of that careful planning ethic helps to avoid getting into things that just aren't going to work out. And planning things too much can also be a drag; sometimes it's good to just act, and see where it takes you. Blending your styles is difficult, but ultimately beneficial.
