What do you do when you spot a difference in your tastes? Renounce soul mate status? Can it be that this bond founded on similarities has no hope of being pure and long-lasting if one thing doesn’t fit? How much does it matter? Head answer is obvious – get over it, accept it, adjust and be cynical – nothing is ever one hundred per cent. My heart wants to make it a bit more complicated. Sure my heart wants to get over it too and let it all in. But it feels a bit cheated. Who is this stranger we don’t agree with on everything? Can we possibly get past it if we’re to spend a long time with this person? Do we just reposition them in our minds as slightly less of a match with us, and slightly less important or valid or likeable, or right? Why can’t they sing only to the songs we write?
