A new study has debunked the famous ‘opposites attract’ myth.
After analyzing romantic couples and friendships and comparing core values and character traits, researchers discovered that a relationship has a higher likelihood of success when individuals share similarities.
It makes sense. Once the initial lust and ardor of a new love affair diminishes, the day-to-day of a relationship kicks in. In order for us to feel comfortable with our partner, we must trust him or her, cooperate and, yes, have things in common with our love.
So, in the end, choose a like-minded partner, as similarities are key to developing a successful relationship that lasts.
