Winston and Julia have only two real similarities:  they both hate Big Brother and the government, and they have a mutual sexual desire.  Other than that, their personalities are almost at opposites.  Winston is concerned about large-scale social issues and is very negative and fatalistic.  Julia, however, is happy to live in the moment.  While Winston wants to join a rebellion and go on to bring down the government, Julia wants to lay low and just not get caught while enjoying sex.
