i was just thinking about this and i think that it is somewhat true that opposites attract because i know a few cases where it is very true, like we will have some stuff in common but we will have a lot that is opposite like we will be different in our ways ..like maybe she will be stubborn or maybe its me that is stubborn...but i think that it can be true that opposites attract as you have all saw couples im sure that you think are the complete opposite of each other...so what do you think about this older saying...do you think that opposites attract? thanks for taking the time to read my discussion and i hope that you all have a great day!

I do.. I think that if you have two people who are just alike thay will butt heads. For example, if you have two very dominating people who think they are always right you are not leaving any room for compromise. I think that when you have somebody who is different, they are able to make you a more fufilled person.

Perhaps its due to the fact that since they have different interests, they can still be themselves as individuals even when they are in a relationship. Consider a couple with similar if not exactly the same interests, you can't deny rivalry or at least a competition going on between them but, that's not always the case. Some couples argue a lot, they ague a lot even when they weren't yet couples but, they get over it when they realize something nice after every detail that they could despise on each other. Its true and it does happen.
