What Happens When Opposites Attract?
While working with magnets you quickly learn that polar opposites attract. The negatively charged pole is attracted to the positively charged. Therefore, the two connect with little effort. The same rule applies in chemistry. Negatively charged particles are attracted to positively charged particles. Why? Because the negatively charged particles have something the positively charged ones want.
The same is true of people. Sometimes people who are similar connect and live a happy existence. They enjoy the same music, same values and enjoy the same activities on Friday nights. They share the same group of friends and attend the same church on Sunday morning.
On occasion, two people who are polar opposites are drawn together.
Usually this happens when one has something that the other wants. For instance, a person who is very cynical and pessimistic may be drawn to the eternal optimist. An individual who has spent their whole life following the rules of society may be drawn to a free spirit, someone that is content to live their life the way that they see fit. Such matches may prove to be volatile. Other times they might balance one other, as positive and negative particles are neutralized when they are mixed together.
How can two people who have nothing in common form a strong,successful relationship?
What individuals don’t realize is that, this is yet another example of nature’s own selection principles at work. Forming a relationship with someone who is your polar opposite is not always easy. You will have different viewpoints on some issues and lifestyles. The two most important factors in these relationships are patience and understanding. Remember! You knew going into this, they were different when you chose to embark on this relationship. You cannot expect them to change now.
Before you choose to commit to someone who is your polar opposite there are a few questions you should answer. What are their differences in the things that matter? Can you be happy with these differences? If the answer to the second question is no, it would be wise to take a step back from the relationship. And if, the answer is yes, prepare to enjoy a lifetime that, will certainly never be boring. Take a Leap of Faith, Now! Find Your Love!
