Starting A New Business? 7 Key Points To Keep In Mind.
So - is the statement 'opposites attract' true only in the realm of science? Or is this truism really true of love?
So – is the statement ‘opposites attract’ true only in the realm of science? Or is this truism really true of love?
“Opposites attract is more a scientific principle than a romantic one” – Minh Tan
Let us look at these two statements:
I am sure most of us have heard these sayings over and over again while growing up. However, they convey diametrically opposite meanings. Logically speaking, only one of these sayings can be true, as they negate each other. But love and friendships are rarely about logic. I have found that both of these contradictory statements can be true — with the very same person.
In my teenage years, I believed in the saying that opposites attract in relationships. This belief was a result of growing up with parents with extremely different personalities and a heavy dose of books & Bollywood movies, where the good girl inevitably falls for the bad guy.
However, if I took a look at some of my closest friends, I realized that more often than not, it is the similarity that got us together and kept us going. And, what is love, if not an extension of friendship?
Over the years, I have come to understand that contradictions exist, and it is not always one or the other. My husband and I have extremely different personalities, but our cultural beliefs, and value systems are very similar. On the whole, while we are more different than we are similar, it is our similarities that we bond over, and our differences make an average day interesting.
Like they say “The happiest couples never have the same character. They just have the best understanding of their differences”.
I would love to hear from YOU. Have you experienced anything different? In your relationships, and in friendships, do you feel that you have bonded over your similarities? Or have you been attracted to each other because of your differences?

Every one has entrepreneurial ideas, don’t we? Mine was to open an organization that hosted events wherein kids from orphanages and elderlies from old-age homes were brought together.
It was unique, at least that is what my professor told me. But the amount of money as capital made it a distant dream. Sigh! But are there any ventures which need little money? Can we start our entrepreneurial journey with just ₹10000?
