MIND BLOWN!! From this really interesting article: A neuroscientist who studies decision-making reveals the most important choice you can make

His neuroscience research has found that when two people are in each other’s company, their brain waves will begin to look nearly identical. One study of moviegoers, for instance, found the most engaging trailers all produced similar patterns in people’s brains.

“The more we study engagement, we see time and again that just being next to certain people actually aligns your brain with them,” based on their mannerisms, the smell of the room, the noise level, and many other factors, Cerf said. “This means the people you hang out with actually have an impact on your engagement with reality beyond what you can explain. And one of the effects is you become alike.” 

From those two premises, Cerf’s conclusion is that if people want to maximise happiness and minimise stress, they should build a life that requires fewer decisions by surrounding themselves with people who embody the traits they prefer. Over time, they will naturally pick up those desirable attitudes and behaviours. At the same time, they can avoid the mentally taxing low-level decisions that sap the energy needed for higher-stakes decisions.

So whats this all mean from a dating perspective? This doesn't mean the person to fall in love with you has to be exactly like you. But what it does mean is that you should be with someone whom you admire, respect and trust. Not a jerk, a bad boy/girl or an outright sh*t person (I don't care how good looking they are).

In the end, and over time you will ultimatley mirror each other and become one other in many ways. So choose wisely! Maybe this can explain why couples wear the same thing?
