It’s summertime in the Northern Hemisphere, and with the warm breeze of summer often comes the whispering winds of romance. We may be prone to start thinking about romantic connections as the weather warms up, and we look for new adventures to occupy what many consider to be the best time of the year. And with the desire for romance comes the question of compatibility.
It’s not always easy to tell how compatible you are with someone else based solely on interactions, especially because everyone tends to flirt and date in different manners. This is why it’s useful to turn to metaphysical tools like numerology and astrology to give us a bit more information that may be lying underneath the surface of a connection.
Today, we’re utilizing numerology to get more insight into how your Destiny number (also called the Expression number) can help you determine compatibility with another Destiny number – and we’re focusing on Destiny numbers 1 and 2.
Finding Your Destiny Number
Numerology utilizes 11 numbers to learn more about our fate, including 1-9, 11, and 22. (11 and 22 are considered Master numbers with unique meanings; but, when determining Destiny numbers, these numbers are reduced to a single digit).
You may be wondering how to find your Destiny number, which is actually quite simple and involves your full birth name, or the name you identify with. Each letter of the alphabet is assigned to a number in numerology.
So, to get your Destiny number, you’ll want to add the letters your full name, one name at a time. Let’s use the name Amy Lee Smith for example:
Amy = 1 + 4 + 7 = 12
And then we reduce that number by adding the digits: 1 + 2 = 3
Lee = 3+5+5 = 13
1+3 = 4
Smith = 1 + 4 + 9 + 2 + 8 = 24
2 + 4 = 6
Now, we’re going to add the three digits representing each name.
3 + 4 + 6 = 13
1 + 3 = 4
Amy Lee Smith’s Destiny number is 4.

Now that you know more about how to find your Destiny number, let’s take a look at the most and least compatible numbers for Destiny numbers 1 and 2.
Love Compatibility for Destiny Number 1
Those with the Destiny number 1 are born as natural leaders of the pack. They typically have an entrepreneurial spirit, they’re self-sufficient, and they know how to get what they want out of life.
While they can appear intense or even aggressive at times, these folks have a big heart and can be quite affectionate. Additionally, their intellectual skills are through the roof.
As a number 1, you will stop at nothing to make your dreams come true. Let’s take a look at compatibility between number 1 and other Destiny numbers.
This can be a thriving combination if you can learn how to dial back your competitive nature when you’re with one another. The intellectual vibes the two of you share will lead to deep, intense conversations that can carry on for hours.
You may butt heads from time to time, as you’re both very opinionated – but if you can keep an open mind with each other, this can be a match made in heaven.
Destiny number 2 indicates a cooperative, compromising individual who wants to get along with others. This can be a great match if you’re looking for this kind of dynamic – one strong personality met with one negotiator.
Number 2 can help number 1 stay calm in the face of stress, as they’re able to help you think things through and focus on your ultimate goals. This match can help you find more patience in everyday life.
Destiny number 3s are excellent communicators, which meshes well with your sense of initiative. If this couple has a problem, they’re able to face it head-on, finding a solution by working through it together.
However, number 3s have an enthusiasm for life that sometimes gets in the way of their long-term goals, as they’d rather relax and have fun.
If you need to be reminded to take a break every once in a while, this can be an excellent match, as they’ll help you step out of your comfort zone (which is hard work) and encourage you to try new things.
These folks are hardworking, down-to-Earth, and focused – which can be a great match for you, number 1. If you are both working towards a shared goal, there’s little that can get in your way to stop you.
While this may not be the most playful union, it can be a very productive one.
However, both 1s and 4s can be stubborn and headstrong. This may be a dedicated, loyal union, but you may also face a few conflicts along the way.
Destiny number 5 craves creative self-expression, freedom, and adventure. If you’re in the mood for a wild ride, this can be a great partnering.
However, you may be bothered by number 5’s lack of routine, as they like to shake things up.
If you can stay focused on your goals with this wildcard, this relationship can be fun and exhilarating. Just make sure not to try to force your routine onto them, as they may feel resentful and rebellious, causing conflict.
This Destiny number places great importance on their interpersonal relationships. They love their friends and family fiercely, so prepare yourself for lots of social outings.
If you are more extroverted or enjoy spending time with others, this can be a fantastic union.
If you feel like social gatherings distract you and get in the way of your career goals, this can be a frustrating match.
7s are fellow intellectuals, meaning the conversations between you will be both exciting and full of depth. Number 7s dig deep beneath the surface to get to the truth, and you may feel thrown off by their forthright nature.
You won’t be able to control this relationship, or its trajectory, as 7s are just as headstrong as you are.
If intellectual conversation is what you most seek in a relationship, this can be a liberating union.
Destiny number 8s are just as focused on success and their long-term goals as you are, making this a financially successful union.
That being said, romance and passion may be lacking, as you’re both very focused on your career and material success.
If you’re more concerned with wealth and power than passion and romance, this is an excellent match. The two of you will work together to make sure that you get where you want to go in life.
Number 9s are visionary, curious, and sensitive. They require a compassionate partner who understands and cares about their needs. If you’re willing to take time out of your busy schedule to tend to their emotional and physical needs, they will be very loyal and responsive.
You’ll take a natural leadership role in the relationship and wearing the pants will be easy for you in this union.
Just make sure you have the time and drive to make room for their desires as well.

Love Compatibility for Destiny Number 2
Destiny number 2s are people who are compassionate, compromising, and incredibly friendly. They enjoy working with others and are very cooperative.
Number 2s are also rather intuitive and naturally understanding, reading the emotions of others, whether they share those emotions or not. Deeply connected to your feelings, you’re more likely to follow your heart rather than your head in most matters.
Let’s look more closely at compatibility between Destiny number 2, and all other Destiny numbers.
This can be a great match, as long as you don’t mind your partner wearing the pants in a relationship. Number 1s are headstrong, and as natural leaders, they can’t help but take charge in most situations.
If you have trouble making decisions and like a little direction, you’ll greatly benefit from number 1’s decisive attitude. However, you’ll have to learn how to avoid taking their aggressive nature personally.
This may be a match made in heaven, as two number 2s working together create peace and harmony in nearly any situation!
You get along well, and it’s almost as if you can read each other’s minds. There’s plenty of care and support in this partnership, and you’ll both feel as though your needs are being met.
When it comes to conflict, you’re both likely to listen compassionately and find a compromise that works for both of you.
3s are naturally drawn to communication and sharing their thoughts and ideas with others; however, their zest for life distracts them from settling down.
There may be issues with timing and commitment between the two of you, and you may have to be patient with them for quite a while before they’re willing to commit themselves to you.
If you really like them and you’re willing to wait for them to open up, this can be a loyal union.
Number 4s are hardworking, practical, and goal oriented. If you enjoy routine and stability within relationships, this one can run smoothly. However, it may seem like they’re not giving you the attention you crave from time to time.
They’re very focused on their projects, and they’re likely to dive into them with a passion that leaves little time for you.
If you’re more independent and willing to be patient, number 4s can be extremely loyal partners.
5s are creative, expressive, and carefree. They enjoy their individuality and like spending plenty of time alone, which may cause insecurities to rise within you.
This union may demand patience and understanding from you, and at times it might seem like your number 5 is being flippant or ignoring you.
If you can learn not to take their need for freedom personally, the two of you can get along swimmingly.
Destiny number 6s are very focused on their relationships and friendships, and they’re loyal to those they love – which matches your personality very well. You may need to work on trusting their intuition as well as your own, as number 6s often sense things unseen and seem to just “know” the right direction to take.
If you can learn to trust their judgement and let them take the reins from time to time, you two should enjoy a dedicated, cooperative relationship.
Number 7s can be moody, as their natural inclination to seek the truth can make them suspicious of others, causing insecurity for both of you.
Your ability to understand the needs of others will help you know what a 7 needs in the moment.
If you are patient with their moods and understanding of their insecurities, they will be very loyal to you. Supporting one another is crucial for this union to work out.
8s are driven towards material wealth and career success, which can distract them from their romantic lives. If you too are drawn towards financial success and power – and you’re willing to sacrifice a bit of romance along the way – you can get along very well in a relationship with a number 8.
Just remind yourself not to take it personally when they have to work late many nights in a row or cancel plans for a project that needs their attention.
Destiny number 9s are creative, compassionate, and in tune with those around them – much like yourself. This is a relationship of mutual support, understanding, and dedication.
Your practicality will bring number 9 down to Earth, while their imagination will help you step outside of your comfort zone.
There is balance and harmony within this union, as you both enjoy taking care of the needs of others.
