Sure rivalries can be fun though at extremes reach dangerous levels. I don't think I've sought out rivalries but a couple of my best mates were introduced via rivalries in sports but it just naturally happened as we were always competing against each other and I agree with the study as this competition heated up we trained harder and elevated above the rest of the competition due to the rivalry. When moved away almost completely lost interest in the events we competed in without having a known strong rival.

One classic form of rivalry is two guys or girls chasing the same love interest. The fact is, if one has to compete for someone's affection, it means there is no love involved. If someone loves you, they won't make you face the embarrassment of a rival.
