There are many, many different ways to use numerology when seeking to understand relationship compatibility. (Click here for just a few!)
In its simplest form, most relationship compatibility study is primarily based on the Life Path number (the sum of the birthday reduced to a single digit) and the second most important number for compatibility is the Expression or Destiny Number (the sum of the full name value reduced to a single digit.) Most numerologists will consider these two numbers at the very least when creating a relationship compatibility analysis, but the whole chart and all its complexities are needed for a true picture (and even then, consider the unpredictable and surprising nature of the human psyche!)
The quickest and easiest online relationship compatibility tests will rarely produce a detailed (or accurate) reading for you, and I’ve seen wildly different results drawn from the very same numbers! So for real depth and accuracy, be sure to consult a professional numerologist. It may even be advisable get a second opinion, as, like astrology, numerology is an art of interpretation so it’s virtually impossible for your reading to be unaffected by the life experience of the numerologist you are consulting!
Keep in mind as well that most numerologists will eliminate the concept of master numbers when giving relationship compatibility readings and reduce the numbers 11 and 22 to their single digit equivalents (2 and 4 respectively.)
All that said, we’ve created a quick-reference relationship compatibility cheat sheet for you!
With this simple rundown for each number, you will be able to easily see whether your relationship – current or potential – looks set for sunshine and roses, or a little more hard work and heartache.

As you can see some of the numbers have the capacity to get along well with more numbers than others. Some numbers are naturally more adaptive and easy going whereas some are more rigid in their needs and outlook. But it’s worth noting that with true self-reflection and a lot of conscious effort, every single number has the capacity to forge healthy relationships with almost any other.
And remember, relationships are our greatest teachers. So every challenge and friction you meet is a way for you to know yourself better.
