For those in relationships that you're not so crazy about but they're not so bad either, you should reference an episode of "Sex in the City," one that probably is a throwaway in the grand scheme of how the show ended, but still poignant for the purpose of discussing whether you actually like the person you're with or not.
In the episode, Carrie Bradshaw is dating a guy who she argues with a lot. And you can actually call it more dislike than anything else; when they would communicate, something was off, they didn't get one another or the male character just was a bit too sensitive about everything that Carrie would say.
He was literal, and offended easily and had little self confidence. The Carrie character, however, tried to convince herself that she liked him, that she could learn to like him or even when they had these inconsequential spats, they didn't mean a whole lot because they had a routine they would engage in to make it go away.
In other words, they just didn't jive.
So the question remains, do you really, truthfully get along with your partner? Or, do you, like Carrie, talk yourself more into the relationship than out of it?
