When picking a lifelong mate, it might be useful to take a really close look in the mirror.
A new German study has found evidence to support the ongoing claims that people are attracted to those who are just like them—looks included.
The experiment was based on how a group of men and women responded to videos of women based on the looks on their faces. They were asked to evaluate how each woman was feeling according to her facial expression. Next, the men and women were asked if they wanted to meet any of the women they studied and to rate their level of interest.
According to brain scans conducted on the study group throughout the process, the more they felt they understood how the women were feeling, the more they were attracted to them, thereby supporting the notion that similarities attract.
