From a relationship coaches lens, I do believe that opposites attract initially but don't end up working out in the long run. It's easy to have good initial conversation, banter, flirtation, chemistry, etc. but when a couple stays together and begins experiencing day-to-day life and the problems that are thrown at them, things get painful. Why? Because when we get right down to it, we're not talking about opposites in terms of musical preferences or food likes. Instead, it's about opposite temperaments, opposite views on life and politics and religions--all things that shape how we think, converse, response to challenges, etc.0THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE

True opposites will likely fail spectacularly. If it is true opposites, there is no meeting in the middle, and your qualities will eventually become divides in how to live your lives that most likely neither of you will really be able to change.
Now that I said that, though. It's is complimentary partners that last. When one is more outgoing, theyes can draw out their partner and help expand their world, have new experiences, all that, as long as they are also willing to try some of the more introverted stuff that the other partner may like. Movie marathons on the couch, etc.
It's abiut being compatible, and complimentary. Not identical, that'll drive you fucking nuts too. And not opposite.
Best way to find out? Try it. Meet him. Explore it. Express your needs, listen to his. You'll never know if you'll be able to find middle ground and be compatible until you try it. Worst thing that could happen? You learn.1THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE
