Compatibility. There've been dozens of women I've been attracted to over the years, but my wife's the only one I've been compatible with.

Definately compatibility if you want a future with the other person
9 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Tuesday 5/11/10 - 11:38:46 AM EST (GMT-5)
I don't think you can have one without the other.

Important to what?
9 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Tuesday 5/11/10 - 11:43:39 AM EST (GMT-5)
Attraction is short-term. Compatibility is long-term.
9 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Tuesday 5/11/10 - 11:56:38 AM EST (GMT-5)
I find it hard to believe that I'd be compatible with someone I'm not also attracted to. After all, isn't that just one component of compatibility?

At least in a romantic sense. Obviously compatibility is more important in the workplace and with friends.
9 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Tuesday 5/11/10 - 4:46:30 PM EST (GMT-5)
Uh, both?
9 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Tuesday 5/11/10 - 5:16:06 PM EST (GMT-5)
I prefer attraction. Sex makes everything better.
9 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Tuesday 5/11/10 - 6:47:05 PM EST (GMT-5)
evidently, compatibility seems to overrule attraction
9 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Tuesday 5/11/10 - 7:00:32 PM EST (GMT-5)
I couldn't have a relationship without attraction but I still think compatibility is more important to a relationship.

Yeah same here. Maybe some people can overcome the attraction bit but.. I dunno, perhaps I'm shallow.

But when you marry and you have to look at that person everyday, don't you want him/her to look at least somewhat attractive in your eyes?

Both are equally as important to me...I have to have both otherwise it just won't work out.

Initially attraction, in the long run compatibility.
9 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Monday 5/17/10 - 5:11:38 PM EST (GMT-5)
I'm going to go with compatibility being the pinnacle of attraction.
9 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Sunday 5/23/10 - 9:47:45 AM EST (GMT-5)
Attraction is essential, but never on its own without mutual interests.
9 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Friday 7/16/10 - 4:02:04 PM EST (GMT-5)
There definitely has to be a bit of both. In the beginning attraction is most important, but in the long run you definitely need to be compatible.
