Why do some people become attracted to their "enemies" ? Take the word enemy however you wish...

This is a strange phenomenon. Has it happened to you?
Someone please explain it to me!

I have always been interested in psychology and human interaction..

    Well, I think it all boils down to passion. I'm a firm believer that the true opposite of passion (love/hate) is indifference.

    Rational people with normal minds are NOT attracted to their enemies. I hate Islamic terrorists (murderers), I despise criminals, and I certainly never will buy into Obama's socialist "redistribution of wealth" (financially sodomize taxpayers) plan.
    I guarantee you I will never accept Obama's socialism over functional capitalism, nor will I accept irresponsible liberalism over responsibility & accountability.
    Our country is (was) only great because hard-working, God fearing men and women would do whatever it took to provide for their families. Tens of millions of Obama voters, however, disagree with the American values which made us great.
    Now, we're headed for a multi-trillion dollar Depression, thanks to the unnecessary actions of Obama and Democrats in Congress. The lying hypocrites may have been able to blame Bush before, but they'd better take ownership of their non-stimulus nightmare, created by their elected officials!!!
    I promise you I'll never admire Obama for destroying our country.

    Opposites attract? To me, that is not humanly possible in any "reasonable" manner that could be suggested. Who in their right mind would even want someone the opposite of them? Except for: weak, passive men or women who have no self esteem whatsoever and feel safe by someone controlling them. That's not your average person with any confidence in themselves at all.

    The fighting is passionate. The sex is just as passionate.

    sometimes they become the enemy BECAUSE you are actually attracted to them and you aren't ready to accept it yet.

    no i do get it--there have been studies that past lives could be part of it, creepy but you battle the same soul(s) for a long time, so hypnosists say, i dont know, but i do know that i had a creepy experience once,--- I had that intuition about this guy, i see him, but never talk to him, move into a new place and he is living down the street from me. he looks at me with these deep eyes of hate and determination, long hair, slightly bearded guy.very rarely saw him- Any way, I had this dream one night that i was a daughter of a wealthy man, and wore blonde wigs even though i was a brunette, it was in the 1920's, this guy was a photographer my father hired who fell in love with me and followed me, but i was in love with the servant guy(typical right), but he wouldnt stop following me in the dream and i told him to get the camera out of my face, later that night at a large party i was outside and he caught me alone, i ran into the woods where he ripped off my wig and shot me in the head, i actually died and woke up!! scared to death, the next day i was outside and with my boyfriend and that guy drove by in his old pickup and started reving it at me and stairing at me like he new!!

    I agree. That is an old concept that, if you look at it long and hard, rarely will bear any fruit. I don't know where people possibly got that idea except from people who were so conceited that they would play on someone's fortunes even though they knew they had nothing in common with the person. That's one possibility.
    The other is people who are hell bent on getting another trophy. Playing up to someone as if they cared or were infatuated with them, and when they popped them it was all over. This went on like crazy during school.
    I have broken up more than one domestic disturbance only to have the woman turn on me. HUH? That happens to police all the time.
    Sometimes a so called love/hate realtionship is just a couple's way of dealing with their stresses and it is not love/hate at all but perfectly normal.

    I believe it is called the Florence Nightengale effect or something along those lines.

    It's the bad boy image. All of the girls know what I'm talking about.

    I had this syndrome with my first husband. It quickly loses appeal after attraction turns to reality. Then you just feel stupid.

    Sometimes they are not really your enemy. Just another person with different opinions about lifes journey.

    it's kinda like a magnet. opposites attract. if two people are two much alike, they tend to push eachother away. take it from someone who does it often. lol
