Find your romantic twin

Christina Bloom, a New York writer, left her husband years ago when she realized she had no chemistry with him. She fell in love with another man and her friends quickly started telling the couple that they looked like brother and sister.

Bloom began to see a trend in happy couples who look similar so she developed It is a dating site that helps other people find their romantic twins.

The site uses features like face structure to help match potential mates.

Bloom is not the only one that feels this way. A 2009 study from the University of St. Andrews found that women prefer men with similar facial features to their own. A 2006 University of Liverpool study asked participants to rate pictures based on attractiveness. The ones with highest preference were ones that looked similar to the participants face.

Bloom says that she doesn’t believe that facial matching alone can build a good relationship. She says that it does amount to chemistry but you must have capability too.

They say that some couples begin to look like as the grow closer together. With this site the couples can start out their relationship looking alike. Apparently some people can appreciate this but personally I don’t know what it says about your relationship when people say your lover looks like your sibling.
