OPPOSITES DON’T REALLY ATTRACT, DO THEY?

By C. Michael Forsyth

It’s commonly said that opposites attract. But is that really so? Whenever I spend a day as a vendor at a book fair, several pairs of young men and women stop by the booth who look like brother and sister but tell me they’re actually couples. It struck me that married folks don’t grow to look alike, they often start out looking alike. Because, given our druthers, we feel most comfortable in a relationship with a person who’s a whole lot like us!

So perhaps when you do run into husbands and wives who are polar opposites, it’s not really the result of opposites attracting. It’s just that when people have had bad luck in the dating game, they eventually give up on trying to find a “soul mate” they’re compatico with and out of desperation hook up with someone with whom they have nothing in common. But, having run out of options, they’re absolutely determined to make the mismatch work — and it does!
