    well-suited and close-knit

    Hello again,
    Here I have another question about vocabulary, this time, but always about relationships. If two people are well-suited and understand each other at once, can we define them as "rehearsed"? I don't think so, but that's what a friend found in an Italian-English dictionary. In my monolingual dictionary "rehearsed" only refers to something carefully planned such as "a well-rehearsed explanation".
    Is there another adjective to define these people who get on well together, apart from "well-suited" and "close-knit"? An adjective describing their mutual understanding?
    I look forward to your suggestions.

    Re: vocabulary

    "Compatible" is a common adjective to describe that situation.
