Daniella sits on her couch as her mother watches British Soap Opera’s, and her cat decides to re-create Kim Kardashian’s Tape, whilst cleaning herself. With a mason-jar filled with lemon water, and Sam Smith on repeat, she begins to feel like an episode of Sex and The City.
(The writing portion of it of course, Daniella doesn’t leave her house)
Now that i’m done talking about myself in 3rd person…
Let’s discuss this matter. The matter that’s been pestering my mind all day.
“Do opposites really attract?”
I know it’s vague subject matter, but i’m curious.
Many touch on the subject, and often use it when two very distinct beings try to show emotion but their contrasting qualities deprive them of their full potential with one another..wait. Sorry
English: When two different people like one another, know they’re different and people use “Opposites attract to make them feel better”
Movies portray two different notions of this.
Depicting an idea of “Opposites Attract” working out
Pretty Woman (1990)
However, a little difference couldn’t hurt somebody.
Or could it? I guess that’s my question.
But how do we know that this works?
How do we know that opposites attract?
Although they’re similar, there’s always the differences driving a wedge between them.
It’s like pairing together a vegan and a carnivore.
It’s like Olivia Chow dating Rob Ford
But then again, life has a way of working itself out.
So, I keep contradicting myself.
As curious as I am, I decided to text/tweet a few friends and ask them myself.
People Who Don’t Agree on Opposites Attracting:
Conclusion: I feel like this has become an essay, but it’s opened my eyes in a way. Usually, I’m trying to impact people with my writing, but for once it’s these individual’s answers that have impacted my take on the topic. Depending on the situation there may be a necessity for differences, if two people are too alike it often gets boring. With differences you end up learning a lot about the person, you even learn more from the person and everything in life is a learning experience. What impacted me the most was the part about the most beautiful things coming from the worst opposites. It makes sense, the notion of Fries tasting good with a chocolate milkshake, etc.
However, there all downfalls. There’s Type A and Type B and curiosity may not intrigue the being right away.
Now, what I take from this.
It’s a compatible balance. Someone prefers an espresso rather than a latte, or cigarettes to calm them down rather than aggressive rap music.
Opposites have a way of meeting two different individuals in the middle.
