how about the proton has two poles but can't create its own negative side,when a electron comes into orbit,the proton positive side pulls the negative filed of the electron through its pole,then charges the south pole with a negative field,then when the field strong enough the proton radiates both a positive and negative field with the use of the electrons own field,thus repelling and attracting at the same time.so the closer the electron gets the stronger the negative field gets repelling it back harder by its own field being used against itself!
I agree the electron is held at distance from the proton. I like the charged ring model because the parameters that describe this distance are the same as those of convex polyhedra which led to this modeling technique associated with Pascal's Triangle. Check out 4 th reference in J. Chem. Ed.
