    Do you believe in "Opposite do attracts" ?

    That is like asking does positive of a magnet attract negative; it always does but it doesn't have to become a sexual thing unless sex is the most pressing thing in one's mind.  Best friends are opposites but because sex is not what is persistently on their minds when together it does not become sexual.

    Initially there may be some {fascination} with being with someone who is much different than oneself. However over time those same things that once "intrigued you" will be the same things you will be complaining about down the road.
    There is no amount of "work" or "communication" that can overcome being with someone who simply Does Not want what you want! Compatibility trumps compromise every time.
    Like attracts like and opposites attract divorce attorneys!
    Generally speaking the more "different" or "opposite" a couple is the more likely they are going to have {major disagreements} once they get past the "infatuation phase" of their relationship.
    Couples who are naturally in sync, share the same values, and want most of the same things tend to be happier. Who knew?!

    Not necessarily, not really, and not all the time all essentially say 'no', but they have different meanings. They all are opposite of yes until necessarily, really, and all the time are explored. So, as an analogy, a blue-eyed blond may be attracted to a hazel eyed brunette, but it is when they meet and those three are explored that leads to likeness (Companionship).

    When I hear that adage I always think of magnets where opposite poles attract. But, what is hidden is when they meet the electrons flow in one direction as a single unit becoming one big magnet. If they didn't work as a single unit eventually they would repel themselves becoming separated → attracted → separated → and so forth. Two individual magnets spinning in place. So, perhaps, seen is the inner workings are the power of unity. I dun'no . . . just pondering . . .

      TM, It's the poles union we call love and why it only work when close. As soon as one is away from the other and feel the attraction, most are not strong enough to resist. Being close 24/7 is the only preventive for weaklings in companionships.

    We may be attracted to people who we think make up for our own shortcomings and flaws, but people who are near opposites do not work together.
    The conflict is too high even when there are moderate differences in personality, like when you have different levels of the personality trait agreeableness and the one very high in the trait seems indecisive and wish-washy to the one low in it, or when you have very different levels of conscientiousness (attention to detail, orderliness), you WILL fight over the different threshold of dirty and sloppy finances.
