    I don't really see it much myself.

    But thinking about it, there's usually much less physical difference between two men or two women than between a man and a woman, so perhaps they're going to look slightly more similar, on average. And people will often share more when they live together, people pick up each others' habits, which will include dress sense, facial expressions and so on.

    It happens to heterosexuals too...

    If a straight guy has an image of what is attractive, he will try and find a partner who meets that image of attractiveness.

    If a gay guy has an image of what is attractive, he will also try and find a partner who meets that image of attractiveness. But at the same time he may also alter his appearance to become closer to his image of attractiveness in order to meet an attractive partner. Also since (huge generalisation) people tend to end up dating people at a similar level of attractiveness as themselves, you can end up with two people dating who are similar.
