an ionic bond is always between two atoms of which one can donate electron and other can accept .

#### Explanation:

in ionic bonding there is complete transfer of valence electrons from one atom to another resulting in the formation of two ions , one with a positive charge and other with negative charge .

#### Explanation:

"A yin and a yang"..........? No!

Ionic bonding always occurs between a $\text{cation}$ and an $\text{anion}$. The result is a non-molecular ionic solid. The metal cation ${M}^{n +}$ drafts in enough non-metal anions, (usually) ${X}^{-}$, to satisfy electrical neutrality. The result? An ionic species is obtained, the which we can formulate at ${M}^{n +} {X}_{n}^{-}$
