A 2003 study from the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences found, in fact, that people really want to be romantically connected to someone they view as being very similar to themselves.

They prefer someone of a similar level of attractiveness, wealth and status, and commitment to family and monogamy.

The researchers crunched the numbers and uncovered some fascinating results.The more similar you are to one another, the easier it is because you don’t have to do as much compromising when you already agree.When you come from a similar place of upbringing, you tend to have similar feelings about raising your own family.Another important finding of this study was that when researchers examined the level of marital happiness and satisfaction, the happier couples had the most similar personalities, though not necessarily similar attitudes.So it may seem like a romantic idea to get involved with a loud outgoing man when you see yourself as a quieter more introverted woman, but the evidence suggests you won’t actually be that attracted to him.
