We’ve all heard the phrase, ‘opposites attract.’ If you haven’t… oh, who am I kidding? You’ve heard it.
It makes sense that we like to say that. When we think of magnets attracting each other, it’s the opposites that do. When it comes to atoms, the positives and negatives attract one another. So it only makes sense that this would happen with people too.
But the other day when I was listening to ‘Perfect Match’ by A*Teens a thought occurred to me… does it really work out that way with people?
I can see being attracted to someone who is different than you. Their way of life might excite you and you want to learn more about them. Beyond that, does it still work? Unless you pull a Danny and Sandy and make changes to yourself for the other person, then most likely. However, if you aren’t willing to change for a person, then you probably shouldn’t be with them. I’m not saying you don’t love them though – because I’m thinking in my own terms if someone asked me to give up my relationship and belief in God for them… then see ya sucker!
At the same time though, if a couple has too many similar interests they’ll probably become bored with each other. They might not though. I’m the furthest thing from a love expert, so I don’t know for sure. This is just my thought on this topic.
Personally, I think a little of both is good. Being with someone who enjoys some of the same stuff you do, but also has interests of their own. I like the idea of being able to do my own thing while my future husband does his without any complaints, but I’d also want to go on little adventures together that possibly involve photography. Again, that’s just me. Some couples might want to do everything together and I think that’s great.
I guess the most important thing though is that you love and trust the person you’re with. As long as you have that, and communication, you should be okay.
