I was talking to a friend (who has passed some of his years in Canada), and I said to him
It's difficult to meet to discuss about a problem because we have different rhythms.
and he agreed by saying
...it is true that we have different paces.
Now, since my English level is still not good enough, or at least it isn't as good as I would like, especially in terms of the richness and rightness of my vocabulary and expressions I should use, I'm not sure if I can say what I said and, if I can, are both sentences equivalent? Is one more common than the other? Which one sounds more familiar to native English speakers? I know that this might be different from country to country, but you can simply mention your country, if you wish.
To be honest, I used the term
rhythm because it's also used in my mother language (of course translated). I didn't even know about pace.
