well tell me whether men attracted to women or vice versa is a theory or a fact?...in my case it is a fact so opposites attract.......
North and southpole of a magnet attach and the when they face each other they repel...it's a fact of life...good guy with good girl will be a terrible relationship....too good to be happy and fun...but if one is good and the other is bad...they will both keep trying to change eachother...when 2 people get married..expect for the basic reasons..the 2 married are in it for different reasons...if they got married for the same reason...they won't last
People are usually drawn to others with similar interests. While differences can be appealing and complimentary, its the common ground that holds the relationship together
I believe in this statement as much as I do in the saying "Birds of the same feathers flock together." Opposites do attract, because due to the differences, two people complement each other. Of course, differences aside, there must also be something they agree upon. Too much differences could lead to disaster, especially if those differences are on areas that matter most to a couple. In other words, yeah, opposites attract, and they could last as long as there are also some common grounds (such as same beliefs, values, etc.).
Opposite attributes can be exciting. There is mystery and a spark in something new or unpredictable. In this way opposites naturally attract.
Then again some people really go for similarities. They just don't seem to stand out as much. Maybe because their antics don't make the news.
I think it's more exciting if the two of you are different, but share some common ground, some interests you can talk about, activities you can do together. But if you have similar personalities, you might cancel each other out.
Opposites do attract or else we would not have great conversations,discussions,different viewpoints etc. Voicing similar opinions or agreeing to everything one says is so boring.Moreover,when opposites come together,they complement each other,filling the gaps which the other leaves vacant!
yeah it does..see guys attracts girls and vice versa. This proves that opposite attracts.
In my view, from having studied and worked extensively with evidence-based relationship and marital counseling, this is more of a folk-explanation then a truth.
Each human being is so complex and unique that there are bound to be countless apparently opposite and similar features that can be associated with what is attractive vs opposite.
I think in most cases, saying that partners are opposites signifies that they lack core relationship maintenance skills.
If more couples new how to effectively express, hear and meet each others' basic relationship needs, then they would not view themselves as opposites. Nor would others.
Opposites always attracts as it is hence proven in science and law has been made on it.
Opposites definitely attract.
Laws of physics. Opposite poles of a magnet attract, like poles repel each other.
My spouse and I are from different countries, different religions, different cultures (totally), different races, like different foods and have been married over 20 years. Now there is proof positive if the laws of physics are not good enough for you!
In relationships, I think it's really depends, it does but not most of the time. It boils down to individual differences and perception. Some people would like to go to the opposite side as it gives them feelings of excitement. Opposition always provides a certain level of thrill as the opposite is usually accompanied by risks or huge difference in which could aid to strain a relationship. Whereas some people are comfortable with sticking on a same path, to be on the safe side. It's always better to be with someone who has the same interests with you.
it is fact...I studied it in psychology. I believe it is the universal law of balance. When two forces are unequal they seek to find balance. I believe it is the same with people masculine/feminine , introvert/extrovert, yin/yang. We seek or are attracted to in others what we don't posses....therefore balancing each other.
