It may work out.
However, it really all depends on how the both of you work on it.
It is important that you don’t get so caught up in how you want the relationship to turn out.
By doing this, you may build so many expectations on the relationship that you inadvertently jeopardize it.
The both of you really have to have an approach that is open to allowing the relationship to develop in a natural way.
It is also important that the both of you have some idea of what kind of relationship that you both want.
The relationship is less likely to work out when the both of you want different outcomes out of it.
Hence, this is why it is to your benefit to know what the other person may be looking for in a relationship.
People often make the mistake of not establishing this earlier on.
They start dating someone believing that they both want the same things out of the relationship, only to realize down the road that the both of them wanted totally different outcomes from the relationship.
So, do try to establish this earlier on.
It will save you a lot of grief if you do.
When you are both on the same trajectory as far as what you want out of the relationship, you can both work towards that a lot easier than if you were both going into this blind.
Something else that will help your relationship work out is when you take your time in getting to know this person without judging them too soon.
Earlier on in your relationship with this person, you may notice something about them that you really like.
You shouldn’t get too excited about this and instantly make the judgment that the both of you are so much alike.
This is another big mistake that people make.
They get overly-excited because they have discovered something similar or amazing about the other person’s personality or life.
They latch on to that one bit of information believing that this is all they need in order to build a strong bond.
It is important that you don’t make these kind of judgments so early.
You should really give it time and allow yourself to gain more knowledge about this person before you jump to the conclusion that this is the right person for you because of that one element that you have discovered about them that you absolutely love.
This goes the same way when it is the other way around.
If you were to notice that there is something about them that you don’t like earlier on or you just aren’t particularly intrigued by, you shouldn’t judge your entire interaction with this person based on that.
There is a chance that if you gave it time, you may start discovering other facets of this person’s personality or life that really appeal to you.
So, the point of all this is to simply be patient before you make any judgments on this person.
The more patient you are, by avoiding making quick judgments, the better of a chance you give this relationship to work out.
This way, you give the interaction the openness it needs without meddling.
When you meddle, you are tempted to continuously move things towards where you want the relationship to go.
However, you would be forcing the issue and that only leads to an unsuccessful relationship.
