You know the saying of opposites attract? This may be true, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that opposites are always compatible. When I met my boyfriend, we were so much alike that it was almost as if we were a mirror of one another. We still had plenty of differences though. For example, he was more prone to be cold, whereas I was usually hot. After a year of dating, we decided to move in together. It was in the middle of the summer time so I just assumed the air conditioning would always be left on. On the other hand, my boyfriend had no such intentions. I could compromise to leave the AC off during the day and open the windows, but the first night was really like torture for me. He didn’t turn on the cooling system! I couldn’t sleep because I was tossing and turning all night out of pure discomfort. I even sweated so much that the next morning my clothes and hair were wet as well as the bed and blankets. I couldn’t understand how he slept like that! I asked him if we could turn on the air conditioning and he agreed to try it. I went to bed so happy and comfortable that next night but I could feel him shivering beside of me. I got him an extra blanket and it seemed to be ok for him. It took a few nights for us to figure out what the thermostat should be set on so that we were both comfortable. Now that the weather is starting to turn colder, I am curious to see how our temperature needs differ under those conditions.
