A lot of folks believe that difference is the spice of life. But doesn't it get frustrating when you and your boyfriend, or a good guy friend, argue about particularly stickling points for the gazillionth time? It's always healthy to see different sides of any story, but sometimes, these differences become so vehement that discussions end up in major fights. In these cases, it might be best to just walk away, either form the fight or, in extreme situations, from your relationship. Here, we'll be checking out the things girls and guys see in different lights, and the ways to defuse the arguments that ensue because of them. We'll also be rating them from one to five—one being a mild problem that's more annoying than anything else, and five being a total deal-breaker. Read on and see how you can cut down on these hassle-makers in your life!

So if that's the case, differences like these may actually open you two to new things, if you're both willing to compromise. Maybe having a revolving schedule of who decides what to do is the key. Remember, tastes can be acquired.
