Most conflicts in every relationship start with a lack of communication or understanding one another.
I agree also.

if characters are not compatible they will always be in miscommunication. very difficult to get in sync.

Yes, that is definitely the case. For Myra and Sergei though, I think they are very compatible.

Yes, that is definitely the case. For Myra and Sergei thought, I think they are very compatible.
It's difficult to find such a combination.

I also don't believe in lovers fighting at initial stages. I hear it a lot so I was just wondering.
Feels good to have people with similar thoughts ?
Well, I believe there can be cases like that where lovers don't see any reason to see eye to eye with each other, but some connects them later, and they become best of friends. From the way this story is going, I see the two becoming lovers; I hear there is a part two to this story. Let's find out what happens then...
Some people bond over differences in opinion as some people love a good debate or heated argument. Holding a good conversation is attractive. Sometimes people are attracted to fiesty individuals.

That is true differences can be something to bond over.

Hopefully they find more common ground though.

I think they probably will in the sequel. At least, I hope they do.

I think both. You can argue with someone and still like them. Then again you can argue with someone and realize that is all you can do.

I am hoping they do too. I do like some conflict, but that shouldn't constitute the entire relationship!
