Tell MC Skat Cat to keep his filthy paws to himself, because it turns out that opposites want to stay as far away from each other as possible.

According to a new study of eHarmony's Compatability Matching System, long-term relationships have a better chance of succeeding when you match up with someone similar to you. It's not that opposites necessarily hate each other — in fact, there might be strong attraction at first — please see above video for a take on the lust phase of a relationship — but those differences will be the death of you in the long run.

That said, I think I probably have a lot in common with MC Skat Cat so let's just be thankful he's stuck in a cartoon form in a video in the 80s. HE CAN'T DESTROY ME EMOTIONALLY FROM THERE.

Of course, a new study will be out tomorrow confirming that opposites do attract — so if you're a dentist dating a candy bar and it's working for you, just go with it.
