The prospect of being in a romantic relationship can be very thrilling. We put our best foot forward when meeting someone for the first time, and then we judge based on our chemistry and compatibility levels. When you are emotionally vested in someone, it can be challenging to separate chemistry from compatibility though entirely different. But which is more important in making our relationship decisions.

Author and Clinical Social Instructor Terry Gaspard defines chemistry as a complex emotional or psychological interaction between two people, which can cause a couple to feel passionate and attracted to one another. In contrast, Gaspard refers to compatibility as having an authentic connection with a person with a complimentary personality.

Chemistry may either be instant or develop gradually, while compatibility is simply a practical truth about how your personalities fit. Complimentary personalities create opportunities for connecting with your partner while appreciating commonalities in thoughts and values to build a lasting relationship.
