Polar Opposites


Sanj and I were good friends for MANY years before we started dating. So when friendship changed to romance there was not any room for pretense from either of us. We could only be real with each other. He is 3 and a half years older and I simply wanted to impress him when we were in university together. He was (is) so smart and studious. I can remember the only class we took together Philosophy … he was taking notes and I would be doodling in my notebook.

We are opposites. Do they really attract? He is a morning person… I am so NOT! My roommate in university called me the Evil Demon in the morning. He is musical … I sing 6th alto…apparently. He is athletic, I am not. He is, for lack of a better word… uptight… stresses… I tend to be more relaxed. He is a worrywart and I tend to assume it will work out.
He crossed at the crosswalk… I jaywalk. He keeps all the laws where as I tend to bend them, if possible.

He loves school and is a great student… I am not. I love to shop… he does not. I love to go out on the weekends… he would rather stay at home and relax.

OK you get my point. We are so opposite each other. What makes it work? I guess the fact the we ARE opposites. If we were both lackadaisical that would be a total fiasco. If we were both worriers there would likely be heart attacks happening. But as it is, if Sanj has a coronary , i would be there to restart his heart! 🙂

So many couples I know compliment each other traits. Do opposites really attract? Not sure but I am glad that these particular opposites do!

Thank you God, for putting a man in my life that loves me unconditionally, even when I ruin his prized rink, that makes me a better person and allows me to grow within myself.
Thanks that he lets me sleep in, does not ask me to play golf and yet appreciates me in a cute golf outfit!

He loves me all the time… where as my love is dependent on his behavior! 😛

    Many social scientists say, "Opposites attract…then attack!" The researchers from e-Harmony.com try to match couples based on similarities instead of opposite traits. You are blessed your marriage is so strong.

    Please tell me that I am not the "University roomate" who called you the evil demon! I do know you don't like mornings though 🙂
