Ever been in a relationship where the other person seems to be your polar opposite, yet for some reason the relationship still works? I certainly have. My longest relationship has been with my current partner with whom I’ve two beautiful children, and although like any relationship we have the occasional ups and downs, we just seem to fit.
Not really that surprising until you consider that we are more opposite than alike. My partner will go to bed early and be up at the crack of dawn and even if I’m tired I still can’t seem to get to bed until late and I love nothing more than a sleep in. I’m a neatness freak, whereas domestic endeavours are not his top priority.
Admittedly, I was once diagnosed with borderline Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, so my partner probably has no chance of living up to my crazy domestic standards. However, this does beg the question why I wouldn’t choose a partner who has a similar penchant for all things clean and sparkling. Perhaps it’s not the most crucial thing to base the longevity of a relationship, but I think you can get where I’m going with this. We have lots of opposites but we seem to have found what we each need to make us happy. So does this mean that opposites really do attract?
