Relationship Series – Opposites Attract
You know how the saying goes… “opposites attract”, and I think I would have to agree in our case. Jack and I are very different people, and whilst we do share some interests, this is not just what opposites attract means.
We both have very different personality traits; Jack is quite sensible and worries more about money and the usual day to day adulting tasks, where as I am a more carefree. Not that I am saying that’s always a good thing or anything, it is just part of the reason why we work so well.
We have a good balance of personalities, when one person is lacking (for “lack” of a better word) in one area, the other makes up for it and balances us out!
This does not apply to everyone; some people may only want to be with people that they share all interests with, and are similar in personality. Which is great if that’s what works for you, everyone is different.
I love the fact that whilst we are both similar in some ways, we are different and challenge each other. It is good to have different interests, so that you can enjoy that time away from each other, and can then come together and share all of the exciting things you have been up to!
It’s great to have someone that may think a little bit different from you; that way you can bounce ideas off each other and get their take on things. This is especially good when making big decisions, it helps give you more pros and cons to consider and different angles on how to view the situation.
I don’t believe that there is a formula for the perfect relationship; but, I do think our relationship has grown into what it is today because of the mixture of our opposite personality traits.
