We're All Narcissists Who Want To Date Ourselves

Tsk, tsk.

By Nichole Fratangelo

Listen up, narcissistic peeps!

A new study is shedding light on how people pick a significant other, and it turns out, most are likely to be attracted to those who look just like them.

The study, conducted by German scientists, asked a group of people to watch videos of women and evaluate their facial expressions. The group was then asked if they wanted to meet any of the women and if so, how badly?

The findings showed that, as the group was better able to identify how the women were feeling, the more they felt they could understand the other person.

“We found the better a participant thought they could understand another person’s emotion, the more they felt attracted toward that person,” the study explains.

You may now be realizing that you and your ex-boo did, in fact, look quite similar. Not surprisingly, many celebrity couples bear striking similarities, too. First up, Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady may have very different career paths, but that bone structure is all too similar.

Other #twinning couples to add to the list include Nicole 'Snooki' Polizzi and husband Jionni LaValleJessica Alba and Cash Warren, and Eva Longoria and new fiancé Jose Antonio Bastón
