Do opposites really attract? It caused more trouble and break ups among men and women than any other. It implies that a couple will be attracted to each other if the woman likes tidiness but the man throws his clothes on the floor, if he’s addicted to football but she can’t stand it, if she loves art galleries while he loves discos, and if he’s a teetotaler while she’s nearly alcoholic. All studies that track the behavior, attitudes, and longevity of couples show clearly that although opposites certainly have some attraction value in the initial stages of attraction, it’s a recipe for long-term tension and breakups.
Couples who differ in their base similarities and values are headed for divorce.
This is not to say that all couples who have many opposing characteristics and ideals won’t last—a small minority do—but for most opposites, their lives are continually dogged by arguments and disagreements. This makes their joint progress toward any mutual goals slow and cumbersome. When couples have different life goals, they waste valuable time by continually going in opposite directions. Research found that the couples who experience the most successful long-term relationships and suffer the lowest number of breakups are those who are similar in race, religion, and ethnicity and who hold similar values or views on social, moral, ethical, and political ideals.
The key, then, to successful long-term partnerships is to search for a mate with similar ideals and values.
Being with someone who is similar like you will keep the relationship going and strong. Why settle for someone who is exactly your exact opposite? Why settle for someone who will contradict your beliefs and ideals? If a couple is similar in some ways, they won’t ran out of things to do together and things to talk about together. Now, that’s a healthy relationship.
Therefore, I conclude that, Like attracts like.
