Why Do Opposites Attract?

    • I’m emotional – which means that I cry, yell, get mad, act silly, and laugh – usually all within the same day, almost daily. He is calm and introspective.
    • I hate driving a lot. He loves it.
    • I’m extremely affectionate. He would forget to kiss me hello or goodbye if I didn’t remind him!
    • I love vegetables. He doesn’t care for any and probably wouldn’t eat them if I didn’t make him (except corn – which really doesn’t count!)
    • I have light hair, eyes, and skin. He has dark hair, eyes, and skin.
    • I, for most of my life, didn’t have much faith. He is full of it, always believing.

    So WHY do I love him – and can only see a future with him? I’m crazy? Like Self-torture? or is there a reason we are attracted to each other?

    Do we love in the other which we are lacking because we admire it or want to become more balanced? Maybe a little but some of these differences cause fights, hurt feelings, etc.

    Are we suppose to learn acceptance of differences, which is easier to do when there is love?

    After years of reading…. what I think I’ve learned is that if you truly love someone, you love them for who they are no matter what. To become a master of this, not letting any differences cause you distress would be the ultimate goal.

    Have I attained this level, No. I am still trying. But every night before I go to sleep, I hug and kiss him and know that there is no one else for me.
