Do opposites really attract?

Are you a believer in the statement, "Opposites attract"? My partner and I are so alike and we were instantly drawn to each other. I prefer it this way, as we can do all of the same things together and very little compromise has to take place. As you more similar, or different from your partner? What initially attracts you?

My boyfriend is quite similar to me and I like it that way. I think it is important to have shared values and such. Differences keep things interesting, but I couldn't date my complete opposite.

Personality wise, we were opposites. With activities and opinions we were alike.

I am initially attracted to what is different (and therefore interesting) in other people. My partner and I are very different emotionally and have different interests, but we share the same goals and values.

Differences do keep things interesting as solitudinarian said, but I think it's your similarities that sometimes help keep you together.

I can only answer for myself... My wife and I are very opposite and we have been married almost 20 years.
