2. People with opposite personalities (shy/outgoing) can complement each other.
He’s a people person, she’s a homebody. He makes friends easily, she doesn’t. Yet they’ve been married for 10 years. It’s an example of why opposites attract, by complementing each other. The social person keeps the shy one from crawling into a shell, the homebody provides a quiet side for the party goer. They’re two halves of a whole.
3. We’re attracted to traits we wish we had.
Sometimes we seek out traits in others that we admire and wish we had ourselves. It’s the whole yin and yang thing. We seek out those who match the holes in our lives as much as we seek out those who mirror our personalities.
