Explain why does NO2 dimerise

A Dimer is an additive product of two similar species. For example, when two molecules of NO2 combine it would give one molecule of N2O4. The N2O4 formed would be called as a dimer of NO2. Dimerization could be due to the formation of new covalent bonds or due to intermolecular hydrogen bonding.  Here, in case of N2O4, it is due to covalent bonding.
