Frontier Molecular Orbital theory
Apart from electrostatic interactions, the overlap between orbitals may favour the reaction between an electron donor and an electron acceptor. A high (in energy) lying occupied orbital in the donor may overlap with a low lying empty one in the acceptor, leading to a net stabilization.
The strength of the interaction is determined by:  
the energy difference between the two orbitals involved (the smaller the better).  
the amount of overlap between the orbitals (the larger the better).
