Do opposites attract in soulmate relationships?

Everyone has heard that opposites attract. Could this possibly be true for soulmate relationships?

When people see a soulmate for the first time, they’re surprised in many ways. The intense connection is a new experience many don’t believe unless it happens to them.

There are many unique similarities within the confines of the soulmate bond. The biggest surprise is how their soulmate is opposite to them in many ways. They had the expectation their soulmate would be exactly like them.


Many soulmates are so similar to each other they could be twins, not to be confused with twin flames. Then again, there are also many who are exact opposites and perhaps not even your type.

As it is with soulmates of any kind, alike or opposite, they face a unique set of challenges. These are their combined and individual lessons. As you learn through reading our other posts, soulmates are all about the evolution of the individual.

It’s interesting to observe how the opposite traits in soulmates can bring out the best in the couple. They can also bring out the worst.

When envisioning what a soulmate will be like people believe their soulmate will be a mirror of themselves. They assume they will like the same things, share the same beliefs and have similar quirks and traits. It will be a surprise when a soulmate shows up who is opposite in so many ways.

When opposites attract in a soulmate connection, they make up for each other’s shortcomings. Where one of them may be a whiz at finances and the other an impulse buyer, they reach a happy medium. When one of them is outgoing, but the other shy, one can come out of their shell and learn to be more comfortable getting attention and dealing with people.

Since soulmate relationships are all about bettering ourselves, when soulmates are opposites, there’s lots of opportunities to learn, evolve and grow. It usually takes someone with a special connection to encourage that.

Soulmate relationships can bring drama and challenges with them as well. And, if you’re opposites there are a lot of opportunities for friction to arise.

So let’s say someone meets their soulmate when they’ve reached a point in their life where they prefer to stay home. They’ll be extremely challenged by a partner who feels like a caged animal when confined to the house. The constant battling over going out versus staying home may become tiresome.

Perhaps the universe put them together for a reason. Could it be they need to get out more, for reasons they’re not aware of? Maybe this would open the door to meet a great business contact that could propel their career forward, or make a lifelong friendship.

The universe may be directing them to get outside their comfort zone for a good reason. On the flip side, maybe the universe wants their partying partner to stay home more. Whatever their reasons, the universe is challenging each soulmate to go outside their comfort zone and provide the opportunity for growth.



Many soulmates get very upset when they learn they’re on opposite sides of major issues. They feel they should be with someone more like them and the universe must be playing some sort of sick joke on them. This is not true.

The differences between two soulmates can bring about change and opportunities in a very positive way. They have to look past the bickering over differences and evaluate why the universe brought this person into their lives. This may not be easy to decipher but with time they will understand.

Are there any traits about your soulmate you admire that could rub off on you? What concessions can you make for them that can benefit you down the road?

Always remember, soulmate relationships aren’t just about romance, but about opportunities to be your best self. Since no one is perfect, there is something to be learned from being around your opposite. Opposites do attract when it comes to soulmates. They can rise above the friction into relationship bliss if they celebrate their differences instead of fighting about them.
