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, but...

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.




Well, the guy I mentioned is someone I didn't even know a week and a half ago, when I expressed to the teacher an interest in working alone. I was just saying that based on some initial work with him, my opinion had changed a little, and I could see how something similar could happen with a cofounder.


>Getting along with a co-founder is nothing like getting along with a partner in a class project.

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.


Sorry I came off harsh.

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.
