The laws of attraction may seem unpredictable, but that’s not quite true. Research from the Czech Republic shows that there are some rules that govern what kind of people we like the most. Let’s check it out on a deeper level, see what else science claims, and find some real celebrity couples who look alike and are living happily with similar features.
We discovered a new topic that can help us to understand how relationships work and if it’s true that opposites attract.
When we are in a relationship, we are more likely to have a crush on someone who reminds us of ourselves, rather than someone who is the opposite of us, in terms of appearance.
Dr. Jitka Lindová and her team showed some photographs of unknown people to students and asked them to rate their attractiveness.
All the images looked similar to the person who was being queried. They found out that single people are more attracted to those who have less in common with them. At the same time, people who were in a relationship picked someone who looked like them.
This can be explained by the fact that this type of avoidant mentality is a “reflecting feature” when you are comfortable with yourself. The more this type of personality has differences with another person, the more these people will avoid relationships with someone who is the opposite of them.
