        Especially couples who've been together a long time.

        They start to look more and more similar for some reason :dontknow:

        My boyfriend and I look so similar that people as if we are brother and sister sometimes <_<

        Found this article which suggests that it's because we mimic our partner's facial expressions? xD

        I haven't noticed this tbh, most couples I've seen look very different to each other.

        Perhaps it's more their body language rather than actual looks. The more you are around a person the more you pick up their habits and actions.

            My cousin recently got married to her boyfriend of 3 years and I've always said to her that they do look very very similar. The facial features, gestures and smiles - all are very similar. Looking at the wedding pictures the other day, my point was just made a lot more obvious. She now agrees with me!

            Maybe there is some subconscious level where we choose a partner with similar looks as well as similar interests.

            With the people who like variety, they go for a partner who looks different to them and has interests different to them.

            My boyfriend and I couldn't look more different! My parents look quite similar-ish though and I look like both of them (so does my sister).
