5 Reasons why opposites attract

Since decades we have nonchalantly believed in the concept of ‘Opposites attract’. And why shouldn't we, haven’t we all at least once been drawn to someone who is so different from us?

So what causes this inexplicable love between two people who are polar opposites? May be the exciting differences between the opposites leads to the attraction and subsequently a natural thirst for completion.

Here are 5 reasons that explain why opposites attract.

1. Coming out of the comfort Zone
Initially being with someone who has the same likes and dislikes may seem an easy thing to do but someone who pushes you out of your comfort zone is bound keep you interested. Remember the straight-laced architect Rahul Kapoor and the free-spirited hairdresser Riana Braganza from ‘Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu’?

2. Different personalities
Relationships should be fun. In ‘Hasee Toh Phasee’ we see Nikhil Bhardwaj (Sidharth Malhotra) a struggling businessman, fall in love with the quirky Dr. Meeta Solanki (Parineeti Chopra).

3. Curiosity: 
Sometimes it’s simply because we want to know how “the other half” lives. In ‘I Hate Luv Storys’, we witness the phenomenon of ‘opposites attract’ again when Jay Dhingra (Imran Khan) falls for Simran Kaur (Sonam Kapoor) despite their obvious differences. One hates bollywood love stories and the other swears by it, but the initial clashes slowly turn into a friendship which later leads to lasting romance.

4. They complement each other: 
A partner who is different from us can complement the person that we are. In other words, their differences enhance us and our lives. If you are shy, having an outgoing partner can compensate for that and even make social occasions easier for you. How else would not Meeta not only manage to come back to her sister’s wedding but also enjoy it!

5. New Experiences: 
Their different hobbies, interests and attitudes can expose us to a variety of new experiences. This can enhance our lives by taking us out of familiar territory, and also show us how to see things differently. We’ve seen this happening with all the Dharma couples mentioned above & that’s what makes their story interesting.

So if you find yourself falling for someone completely opposite to you don’t be perplexed, just follow your heart & it may turn out to be the best relationship you've had till date!
