My dear,

Yes, opposites attract.

Two people who collide head-on upon introduction will lust for each other on the spot. They’ll tango, they’ll dance both inside and outside the bedroom, and then they’ll eventually destroy each other.

Opposites attract, but they don’t work.

The thing about opposites attracting is the same thing that destroys them, the fact that they collided.

See, the collision alone signifies that they were moving in opposites directions. And, this intrigues and fascinates us for a while (the fact that somebody we find sane and attractive is moving in an opposite direction), but eventually both sides will keep on moving past each other.

The relationship that works is the relationship based on two mutual forces moving in the same direction. Like science says about parallel lines, they’ll continue to head in the same direction and never quiet meet up even though they’re that close. This kind of relationship has everything we want: us growing together with the other person, us being unimaginably close with the other person, and us still being intrigued by the constant reminder that they’re not quiet in our possession (that we have to work at keeping them).

Opposites attract, but they don’t work.

Falsely yours,
