Are You Attracted to People Who Look Like You?

You!

Ever notice that your significant other looks, well, a lot like you? It may not be a coincidence. Psychologist R. Chris Fraley of the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign digitally morphed subjects' faces with strangers' faces; he found that morphed faces were more attractive to subjects when their own face was included, USA Today reports.



"When you have a face that looks more like you, you tend to trust it more and think it looks more cooperative," Tony Little, a research fellow in psychology at the University of Stirling in Scotland who is studying the role of the human face in mating choices, told the paper.

An upcoming dating website, Find Your FaceMate, even uses facial-recognition software to suggest romantic matches. Sounds kind of creepy to us, but we do see a lot of couples who kinda look alike. Is it just a coincidence? Or maybe we're all just in love with ourselves?

    I guess...but I'm not so vain and shallow that I base that whole persons personality off the fact that they look like me x.x

    Yes, but only to a certain extent. I have a preference for broadly similar overall shape & attractive features, but I don't like women who have faces that could be mistaken for a man's face.

    I could say that about my ex, but my boyfriend now is a tall, blonde hair, green eyed Aryan whereas I'm a short, dark hair, dark eyed semitic-looking woman.

    I'm tall and blonde. My husband is short with dark hair. Nothing matches with us physically. I did meet this couple one time where they looked like twins. It was strange.

    I like men who are dark and a bit exotic with quite marked features, so nothing like me.

    To a point. I love dark hair and eyes in men, and I have both. But I also love big noses, so go figure.

    I think in general I like tall dark and handsome type. This is going to sound really weird but my sister's bf looks like our brother and guys I go for tend to look like my father's side of the family. It's genetics

    Most of the guys I date aren't 5'6, blue eyed, with a hair-dyeing problem.
