    You and me

    Which of these can be used if you want to express that two people could have a very good relationship?
    Are there better alternatives than the ones I'm suggesting?

    1 You and me, we could fit together very well.
    2 You and me, we could match up very well.
    3 You and me, we could team up very well.
    4 You and me, we could be good partners.
    5 You and me, we could complete each other (or "each other's lives") very well.

    Re: You and me

    This question makes me think of the classic film Rocky, in which the eponymous hero talks to his friend Paulie about his blossoming relationship with Adrien:

    "We fill gaps...She's got gaps, I got gaps, together we fill gaps."

    (I'm not really suggesting you talk like Rocky, though.)

    Re: You and me

    In each of your originals, it should be "You and I".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: You and me

    However, you will hear many native speakers use me there. None of the sentences would work well for me for a romantic relationship, but they would be OK for a business one.
