When it comes to people you’re attracted to, do you have a type? If you said YES, a new study says you might be fooling yourself

A study that surveyed more than 700 men and woman ask them to name 3 traits they look for in the opposite sex such as funny or romantic.

Then presented both those who had the same interests and those who didn’t and the results were the same. They found that you were just as interested in the acquaintances that fit someone else’s criteria, too.

Resulting that everyone wants a partner with positive qualities but the qualities you specifically list do not actually have special predictive power for you.
