In this animation, the molecules in liquid water are attracted to one another but are able to slide past each other. If you look closely, you can see some molecules where the hydrogen atom (partial positive charge) of one molecule experience an intermolecular force of attraction to the oxygen atom (partial negative charge) of another water molecule.
