Why Perfect Couples Break Up
No one likes to see a good thing end, especially the perfect relationship.
In fact, the world went into mourning when Brad and Ange split up, and come to think of it, Brad and Jen too (!). But how does a relationship so sweet turn so bitter? And isn’t true love meant to last forever?
Relationships are hard work and constant effort is needed from both parties. That’s right kids, it ain’t like the movies! Of course, there are numerous reasons as to why people split up but “we’re not compatible” and “we grew apart” is often a common factor for people to separate.
Compatibility is extremely important where relationships are concerned and it is often ignored when people enter into a new romance (side note: rose-tinted glasses). People start dating only to realise half way through their relationship, they have nothing in common with each other. This is because people often compromise and accommodate at the beginning of their romance but when both couple's lifestyles, interests and morals are not aligned this can create cracks very quickly. For example, if your partner doesn’t enjoy living a healthy lifestyle but you do, or if your partner is a party animal but you’d rather sit in and play chess, this will cause issues sooner rather than later.
Yes, opposites can attract but ultimately if you have nothing in common with your partner this will form a divide. In fact, a recent study revealed that 75% of people would doubt their relationship if their partner didn't share their interests or lifestyle.
Having common ground is a good starting point for any relationship and studies have even found that when couples enjoy the same things, their relationship can last for longer than those who do not. Of course, this is easier said than done. Meeting someone who you are physically attracted to but also connected with on a deeper level, can be very difficult to find. Sure, you can go on a dating app and swipe through people’s faces until your thumb hurts but that still doesn’t solve the problem. You don’t know what you have in common with someone until you get to know them. This in turn can be a total waste of time, especially if you find out you are both not into the same things. However dating app, Huggle does something a little different... it connects you to people who go to the same places as you.
Huggle works in the usual swiping app style where you can swipe right with the hope you match or left if you want to see the next person. As well as the series of profiles to look through, you can also click on your list of favourite places to see who else has been there too. Plus you can see the places you have in common too…Jammy!
