Phillip Hodson, a psychotherapist and sex therapist, states that contrary to popular opinion, opposites do not attract as strongly as those who are similar. Those in long -term relationships are usually individuals with a lot in common. If you and your partner share similar personalities and interests, says Hodson, a phenomenon called "emotional convergence" occurs where the two of you begin to view major life events through similar spectacles. Of course, this is the hope that every couple has when they first start out: two people becoming one.
