As you all know, I've been dating a SLE for a while now. It's an addictive relationship. We often refer to one another as crack.
We get along very well, have great chemistry and are generally very comfortable around one another. He is my best friend. The only issue is that nobody thinks that we should be together. My friends don't think he's right for me, and his friends don't think that I'm right for him. People are always asking us why we're even with each other.
Yes, it's true, we are very different from an outside perspective. Most would refer to me as the angel and him as the devil. I'm quiet, reserved, deep, emotional, classy, feminine, kind hearted, artistic, and the typical dreamer, while he is a loud, outgoing, popular, rough, physical, sporty, materialistic, aggressive and realistic go getter. I love to spend my free time painting, reading and cruising the interwebs, while he likes to spend his free time drinking, clubbing, and watching the sports/history channel. Not only that, but our cultures and backgrounds are quite different as well (though we both love learning different things about each others backgrounds.). Despite our differences, we admire our opposing traits. I love the fact that he's so crazy and aggressive, and he likes that I'm so feminine and elegant.
Nobody can see us as good for one another and nobody can see us as lasting. Not too long ago, a mutual SEE acquaintance said that she was surprised he could even obtain a girl like me, and that I seemed to be too good for him. This surprised me, as I often felt the opposite in my own mind (I guess duality can make you feel that way).
Anyway, the point of this thread was to see if this is a common outside critique of duals. I myself could see how people would see it as a weird coupling from an outside perspective. For instance, it's a bit interesting when imagining a socially loud and boisterous SEE with a dry and cynical ILI; or a friendly bubbly IEE with a stoic and impassive SLI.
Has anyone else in a dual relationship experienced these kind of comments from other people? Have you ever thought dual couples seemed odd from your own outside perspective?
