The Law Of "Attractive"?

I’ve found that there are two opposing schools of thought regarding “human attraction”…specifically as is relates to the Law Of Attraction

The first theory of human attraction says that people are “attracted to” people with traits opposite to their character. As one would say, “those two people really compliment each other…she’s outgoing and he’s an introvert.” In other words “Opposites Attract”.

On the other hand, the law of attraction states that people with certain traits are “attracted” or “drawn to” to other people who have similar traits.

“Like Attracts Like”, “Birds of a feather, flock together…”, etc.

So which is it? Does like attract like or do opposites attract?

The very concept of the law of attraction only supports the latter. Begin: that which vibrates on the same vibration level is drawn towards the same. A good example of this is you took two drops of water (that have the same vibrational resonance) and sat them next a few millimeters apart from each other…the drops would be drawn towards each other and eventually become one drop. This is why when you’re thinking about something, it’s drawn to you.

Men and women have different ideas of what’s attracTIVE… I emphasize the “tive” because I specifically talking about preferences or likes. But if those likes are what is attractive to a person, then how could opposites attract each other?

I think then it becomes a matter of choice. What is attractive or appealing to you may override the natural ‘attraction’ that the Law Of Attraction suggests. Meaning: if this person has other qualities that you’ve given more preferential weight to, then the Law Of Attraction is only a secondary influence…but still an influence none the less. (On a side note: that may be why there are so many divorces).

More on this in a later post.

    I do agree with you there. It’s a matter of choice. Attraction is what creates interest in a person, conversation creates interest to know the person better. and from then on, It will be all about choices.

    Afterall, you can choose to put the opposite poles of two magnets together. So I can see both sides

    Actually, the problem exists because of a misconception about opposites. The Law of attraction operates on the level of Mind which is on a higher dimension than the world of sensory perception. Opposites exist only in the world of perception and are therefore, not real in the same sense that the Mind is real.

    Opposites are only projections of the Mind. “Dark” is not the opposite of “Light” but only the absence of light. “Nothingness” does not really exist….only the “Allness” of God. There really are no opposites in the universe but only gradations of things that are projected by the Mind.

    With the Law of Attraction, All things are attracted to all other things and the larger attractor fields eventually draw in the smaller attractor fields just like the sun attracts the smaller planets. Mind is that larger attractor field that draws our smaller perceptions about “opposites” into a larger field where they eventually become one with God.

    Wow! Very thought-provoking post and comments! I’m not sure about “Opposites Attract”

    Imagine joining the company of someone who was your complete opposite – what would you have in common? I think the Law of Attraction is a secondary influence (interesting touch on the subject of divorce).
