    Do birds of a feather flock together or do opposites attract?

    Of course, "birds of a feather flock together." It's not just an adage or an idiomatic expression, it's a statement that tells what really happens in reality. Concerning the "opposite attraction," it happens. But I believe it only happens when one party has something to gain, or probably when they both have something to gain from each other even though their life styles are different.
    For example, an unserious student might be friends with a very serious student because of the knowledge the unserious student wants to gain, or a pastor marrying a prostitute because of some reason.
    Life could be ironic sometimes.

    People have natural curiosity about those who seem different than themselves. It may be exciting but in the end you want someone who is on the same page as yourself. The same things that once fascinate someone will the same things that frustrate them down the road.
    Differences in wants & expectations often lead to arguments.
