I'm convinced that if you really want to see how compatible you are with a person......build together! My husband and I have FINALLY finished putting up the rest of the sheetrock in the basement - YES. We had to wait until we could build a small storage shed to house the saws and tools we had stored in the basement, and finished THAT project up a couple of weeks ago (I don't get bored easily...but that had to be one of the most boring days of my life)!
I am lucky. We work quite well together on projects, and even when I do something not so intelligent (like dropping a hammer on my head!) he's very patient and rarely loses his cool. We see how the other deals with frustration, teamwork, compromise, compatiblity and communication. And all of those things are carry-overs...in how you treat one another in every day life.
I'm telling you....if you want to get to know someone, forget the romantic dinners.....forget co-habitation. Grab a hammer, some nails and a stack of wood...and go build!
