View Full Version : Do opposites really attract?

I am a completely opposite person from this guy so as an analogy he was saying how if we ever lived with each other, we wouldn't stand it. I'm just wondering..

It depends on the people I guess. I know with myself I am always attracted to a guy who has similar interests to me. Most guys who are opposite don't really do anything for me. I struggle to find something to talk about.

IMO..........oh yea...........oppossites attract!!
My ex and I were COMPLETELY different people with different personality types and the whole thing. Although we were, we lived together for 17yrs. (in chaos most of the time, i might add) but a long time before I decided it just wasn't worth it.
Now I have heard of people saying they are oppossites and don't have problems and stuff but I personally find that hard to bellieve but who am I?.....lol. Maybe it depends on just 'how' oppossite you are, idk.

Me and this guy belong to different worlds and believe in different values.. now to think of it, whenever we talk it is about our rants and vents that we deal with in our daily lives.. yet somehow it's exciting..

ive heard so many people say opposites attract but i've never seen any real proof of it, if they do then thats great, but i would rather be with someone who has similar interests so we have more to talk about .

I think sometimes they do...but it's not always a good thing. My (soon to be ex) husband and I are about as different as night and day. I'm kinda shy (in person), quiet, soft-spoken. I try to be nice and friendly to everyone. I don't hate anyone and I don't judge based on appearences, race, religion etc. I like to make others happy, I'm non-confrontational and loving. I have no criminal record and no driving record.
He is aggressive, hateful, angry, seems to enjoy confrontation. He's racist, sexist, predjudiced. Has a felony record, has one recent speeding ticket. Others in the past. But he can be outgoing and friendly if the mood strikes him. I dunno what I saw in him.
On the other hand Tuxie & I have a lot in common and our relationship is very good. So...again opposites can & do attract but your better off with someone who matches you better usually

I think opposites can attract, I think it would make things more "challenging" to make things work.
My fiance & I are different in alot of ways, but we make it work. We live together & sure have our moments of wanting to "box" :D, but we somehow always fix things & make it work.
I think it depends on HOW much of opposites a couple is that could determine whether or not the relationship would be confrontational alot or not.

yeah, i believe they can... sometimes bringing completley different things to the table helps out with balancing each other out and all.

Yeah, opposites can attract but you must have some things in common as well so you enjoy the time you spend together..But you can spend time apart with family and friends for the things you are not into doing together.

don't think I understand your definition of 'opposite'

In my experiences and from what I have seen, this saying really does not hold true. There have been times when I have courted women who were my polar opposite and failed miserably. Also most of the times when I see couples they seem to be quite similar in appearance and personality. The girl I am with right now is like a better female version of myself so much that she wears the same glasses as I do.
