Patching problem

Usually patch is done by:
  diff -Naur file1 file2 > patch.1
And to patch file2:
  patch < patch.1

Now let's assume that I want to patch file2 with the differences from file1. However all the initial differences of file2 I want to keep.
In other words I want to apply only '+' changes in patch.1 but not to apply '-'.

Is it possible ? And if yes, how can I do this...

What are you trying to do exactly?

Your commands would take the differences between file1 and file2, then
apply them to file1.

If you're trying to do a 3-way merge changes from one set of files into a third
then the command you should be using is merge...

Thanks Mysidia,
I wanted something else, but with merge I can achieve same result.
