Dating someone who is opposite of you
New research (not in ) found that couples who were different from each other made up the best relationships. Should you date someone who is your opposite or you should stick with people who have almost all of the same interests you have?Well, according to this research that states that opposites do, in fact, attract, in order for that kind of relationship to work, you and your partner need to have shared goals.
So much so, in fact, that 17.5 per cent avoid finding out the political opinion of their date in case it changes their feelings towards them.The book , which has surveyed more than 70,000 people about relationships, found that 95 percent of couples who are very similar to each other said they were “extremely happy.” So it would seem like maybe opposites attract, right? There was no word on what opposite couples had to say about the state of their relationship (at least that I’ve seen), so it’s hard to tell.Also, there seem to be conflicting reports out there.I am constantly learning about things I’ve never thought twice about from him and vice versa. As different as my boyfriend and I are, we still share the same goals when it comes to our relationship. We both like each other (that’s a pretty big one) and we both have the same thoughts on what a relationship should be like. He introduces me to new things I never thought I would enjoy and I do the same for him. I almost feel like if we were very similar, things would get boring, fast. Speaking from my personal experience, dating someone who is just like me is like dating… And yeah, I’m cool and all, but I don’t want to date myself. I guess what I’m trying to say here is that when it comes to relationships, it’s usually about finding the right balance for you. Would you rather date someone similar to you or different than you? “I don’t care if they’re exactly right for me in every other way, I just couldn't go out with someone that voted for a party that has presided over police cuts, nurses pay cap and the housing crisis.
It’s not exactly the best way of telling what someone is like but it’s usually a good indication.” And he’s not alone.
” And it’s not all bad news, as 29.8 per cent of 18-24-year-olds believe someone is more interesting to date if they have vested political interests.
Whether you agree with their views or not, there's no denying: voting is sexy.
“Political discussions can often cause tension but it’s always important to be understanding of your partner’s political preferences and to be mindful that their preferences may be different to yours, Match’s dating expert,” Vicki Pavitt said.
“Honesty is key, so don’t hide your views in fear of it putting off a potential partner – they will want to know the real you, politics and all!
My current boyfriend and I are very different from each other.
