After they were spotted sitting together courtside at a Knicks-Spurs game, rumors about actress Chloe Sevigny and Jersey Shore’s Paul “DJ Pauly D” DelVecchio were an item.  When asked by Interview magazine about the possibility of dating Pauly D, the Big Love star called the idea “hilarious,” reports People.  Sevigny added, “That would be the weirdest couple in the world.  It would be like the apocalypse.  We represent extremes, in opposite directions. So for us two to come together, it would be a very strange meeting of the minds or colliding of two worlds.”

Is it true that opposites attract?

Cupid’s Advice:

“You say ‘yes,’ and I say ‘no.’  You say ‘stop,’ and I say, ‘go, go, go!’”  Can this complicated relationship (courtesy of the Beatles) really work?  Cupid has some ideas:

1. People are complex: No two people are completely opposite (or completely alike).  When opposites attract, it may just be two people who find that the few things they have in common are more important than their differences.

2. Scientists say no: According to a 2003 study where researchers quizzed 978 heterosexual residents of Ithaca, New York, about what they look for in a partner, the results were clear: The majority look for mates who are similar to themselves.

3. Opposites attract, but do they stay together?: You may be attracted to someone who is different from you because they seem to fill a gap.  But it’s up to you to make the relationship last.
