So true. When we met, she was social, I was shy. I am a musician, she is not musical. I like The Expanse, she likes The Office. We have less in common than not in common, but we have found interests that we share like hiking. And the occasional movies, tv shows, or band. And we are both willing to try or do things the other likes. And we like (and love) each other. I let her be her and she lets me be me. I don’t want a clone of me. How boring. And scary! We have been married 37 years now.
