Yesterday while I was relaxing, perusing other blogs and watching the real Two & a Half Men, a friend of mine had a status on BB stating that 10s don’t go for 5s etc. Though I believe this happens sometimes, she went on to tell me one of her friends stated it does happen because opposites attract and that got the wheels in my head turning. I think everybody knows opposites attract but no one sticks around to see how long it lasts.
This is something I always felt strong about since my days back in college when I liked this girl who was nothing close to similar to me. Ever since then I have drawn the conclusion that opposites attract for a relatively short period of time but what happens afterwards is the most significant thing of it all. My thinking is that the difference between the two people is the fuel that ignites the desire to get together be it relationship wise or sexual. Unfortunately, this desire usually fades after a while and the relationships turn sour or just finishes.
Many may say that there are many exceptions to the rule and I quite agree with them but to a point. The way I see it is that opposites attract because of those differences initially but as time passes so many things become “normal” and actually become part of each others lives. This in turn plays out that they become more similar or familiar with each other and the distance between their lifestyles shrink. For instance, it’s only obvious that if two people are in “love” or something else, spend enough time with each other they will eventually become accustomed to the other person’s habits etc and in some instances, they too will like some of their habits and hobbies. How many women actually end up liking sports they had no care for before they met their sportsman boyfriends?
Of course this doesn’t always happen and the thing is usually when it doesn’t the relationships run their course.

1) Do you think opposites attract in the normal sense or do you agree with my analogy?
2) Have you been in this kind of relationship? If so, what happened?
