When East Meets West

"It's no good pretending that any relationship has a future if your record collections disagree violently or if your favorite films wouldn't even speak to each other if they met at a party." - High Fidelity, Nick Hornby

As a firm believer in all things said and spoken in books, I guess I've always felt the truth of these words. But what do you do when the good girl meets the bad boy?

We've all read the stories, we've seen the films, heard the music. We all know about Juliet, and her Romeo. We know how it goes for star-crossed lovers. But when there are no rivals, no warring families, no spanning years and continents, no bloodshed and plagues and disease, no outside physical force preventing your love, when only the heightened degrees of your differences is the only thing that keeps you apart, do you move relentlessly forward or do you go down swinging?
