There has been a lot of discussion about Jennifer Anniston and Brad Pitt online. We don’t care. We just like to discuss something else. The story is: opposites attract.
– Some of our “comments” seems to believe Brad is actually Kim Basinger. Imagination! We are convinced however, it is needed to investigate and find out who Brad Pitt is, really. We are not sure about his identity. Even a comparison to Kim Basinger is a possible angle. –
Or maybe not? We often see how people chose a partner that looks similar to them. Perhaps, unconsciously, they want children who look like them? Or perhaps, they feel best around someone who reminds them of home (they look like the people they grew up with, like siblings).
Anyway. We noticed this was the case for Jennifer and Brad back in the days. Especially from the front, their faces have similar features: the eyes and nose. That relationship did not last. The whole world viewed the take-over of Angelina Jolie. Ever since, the couple Brad & Angelina was world news, until they split-up.
We see a similar effect in the Netherlands. For example Liesbeth Kamerling and Frans Pahlplatz. Together, split-up, together again. Though one is blond and the other dark, they have very similar facial features. Small nose. Eyes a bit closed. Eyebrows relatively low, so close to the eyes. Jawline prominent. Both not too large ears (rather small).
Our conclusions are, that opposites do not attract in real relationships. We do look at opposites, as we find them attractive. But most of us don’t buy it in the end (window shopping it is).
This is also the case for the rich & famous: they want someone who is like them.
