I've been with my boyfriend for almost nine months now, and we've been friends for almost six years, and I still don't know everything about him. And he doesn't know everything about me either. We know what the other person likes and doesn't like, their personality, their moods etc., and sometimes we can even predict how the other person will react in a certain situation but then again, there's always a few surprises here and there. It takes time to really understand your significant other. Everyday we're growing together and learning new things, and that's the fun part about it. When a person becomes predictable, your relationship can become boring. Sometimes not knowing absolutely everything is a good thing.
I think it also depends on the person. Some people are actually really boring ha ha and to be with someone like that would make it easy to figure them out. But being in a committed relationship with someone who has a sense of humour, is spontaneous, fun, and passionate is worthwhile. It never becomes boring, there's always something to do and new things to discover.
Predicting your lover is the challenge but the blessing is learning who they are and growing together.1
