    'I am opposite you' suggests location.

    Perhaps:
    'I am seated opposite you.'
    -on opposites sides of a table, or across an auditorium on the opposite side.

    'I am the opposite of you.'
    -indicates polarized personality differences, or opposite opinions.

    You like to stay awake late at night. I'm the opposite of you. I like to go to sleep early.
