People will tell you the key to any successful relationship is compromise. Without the ability to compromise, long-term love affairs don't make it beyond short-term trysts. Compromise done well is like any negotiation, the trick is to give so that in return you get something you want. In that vein, I'm going to see The Matrix: Reloaded tonight. I didn't like the first Matrix. But I also don't want to go alone to the premiere of Seabiscuit this summer. No wonder people say relationships are hard!
