The Law of Attraction

    "Like attracts Like", that's what the law of attraction says. Whatever you want to get or achieve in life, you will get it as long as you stay focus on it and you always think about getting it. In terms of relationship, you always have to focus on the good things you see in your significant other not on the bad qualities in order to keep the relationship working. In life, "like attracts like" means that you always look forward to get along with the people whose qualities are similar as yours not with those who are so different. For example: A professor--a smart, decent, professional and well-respected would definitely won't get along with a rock star.

    So, what you say??

      The 'Law of Attraction' is pure bunkum.

    Being a "rock star" and a Professor are not basically personal qualities. They are just labels of an occupation. The Law of attraction in relationships is more on the personal qualities such as kind, honest, liar, scheming, loving, sneaky, among so many and varied inherent and intangible personal qualities, regardless of life circumstances. Choosing a mate in terms of occupation, social status and any other human circumstances is outside the scope of "Law of attraction". It's a personal choice. The Law of attraction works independently...it's a universal law similar to "what you sow is what you reap". When you sow  tomato seeds and choose to have it bear apples cannot make your tomatoes into apples just because that is what you want to happen. You planted tomato seeds so tomatoes are what you harvest.

      Exactly. There is no set type of person each one of us is meant to be with. There's no reason why a rockstar could not be attractive to a doctor. In fact I've seen doctors with tattoos that listen to rock music so that theory doesn't work with me. Today, people tend to care more about the opinion of society so they choose a mate based on what they "think" they should be with. That is the reason, partially, why divorce is so prevelant today. We're not choosing the person our hearts are attracted to, we're choosing based on social status, occupation, wealth, beauty, and some people even get married just to save money on their taxes and have someone to share their bills with. That is ridiculous.

      I am in love deeper and harder than I ever knew existed, for almost a year now, to someone that other people say "I never saw you two together"....because we look like we're in different classes of people on the outside. He's a professional and kind of looks like a sexy teddy bear, I'm 36 yrs old (5 years older than him) but look and act like I'm 25. He was my boss. He's never in his life been even friends with someone outside of work, him and I just had a magnetism between us that is unmistakable. We could've never denied it for very long because we are physically and spiritually drawn to each other. it's unexplainable. But If I cared about what society thought and cared about getting a rich guy, blah blah blah, I wouldn't have chosen him per se. But I don't care about society, I went with my gut and my heart.

    I had a good relationship when I was a lecturer and my guy was a bass player for a chart-topping group.  There is not reason at all for a prof and a rock musician not to get along.
