Getting along with a co-founder
is nothing like getting
along with a partner in a class project.
I have friends that I worked great with in
college. They all remain my dear friends,
after years of hacking together, and literally
hundreds of thousands of lines of code, sometimes
you just don't see eye to eye..
I agree a co-founder is beneficial, but it is very
different then just hacking a project out
with a buddy.
The OP compares a good cofounder to a really good relationship... it is probably not a coincidence that "partner" applies both in the sexual/societal union sense and in the business sense.
I was not questioning whether a "really good relationship"
was a good foundation for selecting a co-founder.
I was questioning whether a one night project signifies
a "really good relationship".
It may or may not.
I think the OP had many great insights and I
enjoyed reading his post.
