I like people with a lot of passion plus spirit, not the sort of folks who can just roll with the punches plus appease the desires of others.
When I was looking for a partner I knew that I wanted a guy who would happily express themself and think independently! I realized early on that it was undoubtedly pressing for me to date someone with big opinions, but, down the road I did not realize how challenging this opinionated personality would be! Apparently, putting one or more strong personalities under a single roof is seriously hard and causes fights, all the way down to your central HVAC system.
For years, my partner and I have been at odds when it comes to our thermostat settings. Both of us never see eye to eye on the temperature control program as it relates to our financial concerns and individual indoor air quality preferences. I am regularly trying to decrease the thermostat usage, while he blows out the whole house. This means, our heating and cooling unit spends a lot of energy alternating between differing temperature control options. We have been routinely fighting about the additional wear and tear that we put on our heating, cooling and air quality control idea for the past decade. At some point it became necessary for us to consider either divorce, or replacing the indoor air handling devices. That’s when we came up with a solution, but zone controlled heating and cooling has saved our marriage. Both of us have thermostats in every room and separate temperature systems to make those air conditions a reality. The best part? We spend little time together to engage in bickering from our distinct zones of comfort.
