Opposites Really Do Attract!

Evident in these relationship memes, Spock and I go way back. You know, sometimes it is very fitting to have a relationship with a tranquil personality who can add calming reassurance, and not create additional chaos, to an already highly-emotional individual, such as myself. On the other hand, an emotionally-charged personality can be very helpful in stimulating a passive, unresponsive, and overly-logical individual. Right, Spock?

Star Trek Theme Song

Spock, and I

Opposites Really Do Attract!


Spock, and I,

go together,

oh, so very well;



He is very logical,

and I am an emotional

roller coaster

from Heaven,

or from hell!


Opposites Really Do Attract!

Opposites Really Do Attract!

Level Headed


He is level-headed

and walks

an ever rigid line;


I swerve to the left or right,

since my boundaries

are blurry,

and often

difficult to define.


Opposites Really Do Attract!

Opposites Really Do Attract!

Sophisticated


Spock is sophisticated

and carries

such amazing self-control;



I am spontaneous

and free,

and ever which way

the thunder groans

is the way I tend to roll!


Opposites Really Do Attract!

Opposites Really Do Attract!

What Mission ?
What Mission ?

Awaken


I like to awaken

him, though feelings

he has not;


And, he likes to quiet

and calm me,

when deep

within emotions

I am so frantically caught.


Opposites Really Do Attract!

Opposites Really Do Attract!

Balance


Opposites are Spock, and I,

though we balance

each other out;


I, displaying a full

spectrum of emotions,

and he, showing me what

an unemotionally logical life

is really all about!

Opposites Really Do Attract!



Opposites Really Do Attract!

Mission

Opposites Really Do Attract!


When Spock is on a Mission,

he is always calm, cool,

and in-check;


Yet, I have an ongoing

Focus and Attention

Deficit.



His memory is spotless,

impeccable, and never,

ever suspect;


But, I need to take constant notes,

or else nothing will I even

vaguely recollect!



Spock is attentive to each detail

on his every Mission,

and admired with great respect;


However, my own thoughts

wander, everywhere, and often

do not entirely connect!



His Missions continually

create a successful,

respected affect;


And, he logically guides me,

so that the Mission details,

I, myself, do not accidentally forget!



Spock is dedicated to

his every goal, and each one

he will loyally protect;


But, my mission is Spock, himself,

and it is him, whom I will never,

ever neglect!

Spock really helps keep me together, especially with all the important Missions in which we are responsible! But, I also am of benefit to him, as well. I try to keep him in-touch with his more “human side”. He likes that about me... I think.

      Thank you, Dora :-) Yes, I really do hope Spock comes around, and does not consider it too illogically sound to “call in sick” once in awhile to one of his Missions so that we might, perhaps, watch a romantic movie together, now and then (preferably Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory).

      I have often dreamt of being an Oompa Loompa. I do not think Spock would think this to be an entirely logical career choice, however... lol.

      Flourish,

      How true! I dated two engineers in the past, at two separate times, of course, and though they don’t display much emotion, they definitely get done exactly what needs to be done.

      They are extremely efficient. You might not necessarily get much width of shoulder-space to cry on, but they will build you a house.

      LOL... Interesting bunch, those engineers :-)

      It sounds like you need an engineer if Spock is otherwise engaged. My husband and brother are engineers and my daughter is on her way to becoming one. What I love most about the rational, logical engineer is that you can specify what you want and if it makes sense they’ll deliver. (Now it may not be with empathy, but they’ll deliver.) They operate very much on behavior/consequence with low drama. Drama doesn’t make sense to them.
