Opposite personality types. I do think it is true to some degree.

All of the above and more. My wife won't let any of her food touch, and I mix mine all together.

They probably want to say that some people might look for someone that is not exactly the same, but that complements him/her.

It's also a scientific term related to how magnets work. Try putting two magnets together. You have to use opposite sides together. If you flip one of them around and try to put them together that way they will be propelled apart.

I prefer to use the term "complimentary" as oppose to opposite. Two people with similar personalities might find each other boring because they always know what to expect. With opposing personalities, you fill in the holes with each other and "compliment" each other. It's a good thing.

Ones weakness is anthers strength. Ones strength is anothers weakness. We usually look for our weakness as strengths in another. Say you're shy, you'll be attracted to someone outgoing.

It simply means that guys belong with girls and girls belong with guys. Simple, but true. Sadly, many people don't live by this.

Why is it sad? I'm attracted to women and I'm happy. Homosexual men are so happy they call them 'gay'.

How strange that this makes you sad? It is because you feel you are missing out on the fun?

Really, there is plenty of things to be sad about in this world, can't you find something more constructive to be concerned over?

Couples and families were created to produce children. Now, since homosexuality has become so popular, people have tried to go through loopholes to have families, even if the parents are gay. We have fallen so far from God's original plans.

Two people with opposite personalities are more likely to get along. My best friend is so different from me, but I usually clash with those who are exactly like me.
