Dating look alikes
It's called convergence of appearance , if you want to get technical.But researchers are still undecided as to why couples start to dress and look alike.It’s also the site that absurdly claimed during her pregnancy that Jenner was open to reconciliation with her ex-boyfriend and, just two days before giving birth, regretted having Scott’s baby instead of with Tyga.And it’s the same blog that said there was a chance Tyga was going to drive Jenner to the hospital when she went into labor.We subconsciously want to pass on our own genes, and your chances of having a kid similar to you is bolstered with somebody who looks like you.(Unfortunately, there's been little-to-no research on how this trend plays out in mixed-race couples.)The "facial likeness" study from the now-late psychologist Robert Zajonc of the University of Michigan in 1987 is still the benchmark for people who worry that they're developing their partner's scowl.Zajonc thought it was because a long life together meant shared experiences that left similar lines on faces, and that couples would therefore begin to look more similar.Others were more practical, believing that it's simply a matter of genetic similarity becoming more evident as the rigors of age remove distinguishing features.
Those first two can be stopped, but science has declared that, indeed, the longer you're with a partner (and we're talking seriously long-term here; decades, not months), the more you resemble each other.Opposites may attract (Kendrick Lamar's never wrong, right? While we seem to like a bit of difference in a partner's character, when it comes to faces, it's usually all us, all the time. Why would people start to morph slowly into their partners?And why are scientists telling us it's actually a good sign?He’s just playing a waiting game for now.” The very next phrase is, “That’s not to say that he’s sitting around.” To clarify, while Jenner brought a child into this world with her new boyfriend, Tyga is fairly certain the two of them are “not over.” And he’s just “waiting” for them to get back together, but is doing that, as the outlet notes, by recently hanging out at “a nightclub with a brunette woman who definitely resembled his 20-year-old ex.” It sometime feels as if no one at Hollywood Life thinks through their fake news stories before slapping them together and posting them online.
Just to remind everyone, this is all coming from the same untrustworthy outlet that Gossip Cop busted when it swore up and down that Tyga was doing to do a “revenge” reality show about Jenner, as well as releasing “intimate videos” of her.A 2010 study showed that people who'd been married for 40 years were just as definitively different in their personalities as they had been at the start of their marriages, even if they now shared habits, homes, and mortgages.
