Attract or Divorce?

20 Jul

10550972_798868730160018_2102086029458271520_nDo opposites really attract? We’ve all heard the clichĂ©, “Opposites attract” but is it really true in regard to love & relationships? What do you believe? Is anyone living this in reality?

I posted these questions on my Facebook fan page today. I didn’t receive as many comments as I would have if my question may have been about a woman holding up a sign on the side of the road with the picture of the woman who her husband was cheating on her with and calling her the town whore but I got a few lol.

  • Opposites do attract, but not as much as people are attracted to people they have in common things with
  • Yes, I believe it’s true. Yet, due to us being opposite I’m in a constant state of learning
  • I believe opposites do attract – because of the intrigue.
    But because of the differences – the attraction isn’t strong enough to develop the bond that is needed for longevity
  • I think so, if people look past all their differences they may find that they actually compliment each other. In the areas where one is weak the other is strong

In love and relationships I believe there must be some sort of commonality in order to effectively attract another person; there needs to be a certain level of likeness between two people for any type of union to sustain itself. We all understand that differences will always come up because we are dealing with people with separate minds, dissimilar preferences and diverse experiences. As one person stated, we could use those differences to teach us and help us grow or we could use those differences to add to us in areas we see ourselves as weak. It is how we deal with those differences that will show where we are as two people in one relationship and where we are as individuals within ourselves. All in all, relationships are about choice. We choose what we can deal with and what we cannot deal with.

Our similarities bond us, our differences build us.

Until we meet again love bugs,

    Great conclusion there! It is necessary to have things in common. I struggle to find common ground and therefore conversation material with somebody when we’re too different. However, it is important to keep your own identity too.
