The Compatibility Series is a visual aid to express the way two people come together in a relationship. One side is the feminine, the other the masculine. Each “brick” is a part of a bar graph of their characteristics.
In this instance the two people are nearly perfect for one another. They are great compliments and well suited. This does not mean they are without challenges, but in those cases they have bridged the gaps between them to live harmoniously.
“You are here” signifies that where there are gaps in our compatibility we tend to spend a lot of time and energy there- focusing on what doesn’t work in the relationship and where needs are not being met. If we’re not careful this focus can easily overshadow the good in the relationship.
Man Meets Woman was the first piece in the series.
