Your relationship is a challenge both of you can take up successfully on the condition that you demonstrate willpower, which you certainly will. Periods of calm are followed by more turbulent ones. All you need to do is to put a bit of effort into your relationship in order to adjust to each other, and meet your divergent needs.
You can make a wonderful and lasting couple if you are really willing to! The challenge for you is realistic with the condition of having the will and, you’ll sure have it. The periods of calm will leave room to more agitated periods, but it is just a matter for you two to accept sometimes to bring a little energy to the relation in order to adapt to each other because you don’t have identical needs. You can form a very beautiful and lasting couple if you really want it!
