Do Opposites Attract?

The question of whether opposites attract is a continuing debate so I decided to throw out the idea for some comments.

My feeling is that opposites can attract but a relationship has a better chance of succeeding if both are more alike than opposite.

Your thoughts? And is your relationship an attraction of opposites?


  1. Much more opposites, no question about it.

  2. Lash and I are opposite in some ways but compatible enough in others that we can live with the differences. We have similar backgrounds, similar educational interests, similar socializing styles but have some different personality traits that caused problems earlier in our marriage. I'd say we're a mix. The key is having enough love and commitment to get over the obstacles and get to the good stuff! Meow

  3. My husband and I are very much opposites. In some ways, I think it's the small age gap. Like Meow, we do have the same goals, share many of the same interests, and love to laugh at eachother's differences.

  4. Depends on the individuals. We are very much alike same age, share the same interests, love the same music,used to visit same places before we met. Yet have 2 sets of friends who are totally opposite and have just divorced, ask them why they divorced and they say because we can't get on, were just opposites.


  5. Personalities - opposite Creating Balance
    Core Values - same
    Culture - same
    Politics - either
    Religion - either
    Living styles - same
    Sexuality - same
