Have you ever had the feeling when you realised that the things that got you attracted to a person before are the same things that drive you up the wall now? How his eccentric behaviour that swept you off your feet, now gets under your skin? If you are the victim of the same cause, then you are not alone. I know women who after years of being in a perfectly happy relationship,wake up one morning saying, “Really? Him? Out of all the people I could have dated I had to choose him? What the hell was I thinking?”
Now I know it is human nature to be attracted to the people who are different from us, it is a way to complete the things that we find missing in ourselves. Still I don’t think it works in the long run. According to me we should be with a person who shares the same perception towards life and has similar dreams and aspirations. I think that way both partners may be able to help each other through the ups and downs of life. Isn’t that what compatibility is all about?
It is true that when we meet a person that is poles apart from us there is instant attraction, like moths to a flame. But how long is that attraction going to last? There will be a time when those differences you once boasted of become the common subject for everyday conflicts.
What are your views? How true is the “opposites attract” theory according to you ?
