I love this video by Nature about odd animal couples and bonding. To me it shows that love can grow even between opposites. Check it out and enjoy! Educational and moving.
The photo here is my little animal odd couple Zoe and Pepe. Zoe is an Orange-winged Amazon Parrot and Pepe is a hybrid Lovebird. They have been together for 15 years.
"We do not believe in ourselves until someone reveals that deep inside us something is valuable, worth listening to, worthy of our trust, sacred to our touch. Once we believe in ourselves we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight or any experience that reveals the human spirit." -e. e. cummings

ARLINGTON, Va. (December 1, 2012) – The American Psychiatric Association (APA) Board of Trustees has approved the final diagnostic criteria for the fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5).

These final criteria will be available when DSM-5 is completed and published in spring 2013.
