When we judge if we are “in love” with someone, the most common criterion is whether we feel the “chemistry.” The scientific truth is that bonding chemicals like oxytocin only keep couples together for a few years, thus “The Seven Year Itch” although a good number of studies have shown that people around the world tend to divorce during and around the fourth year of marriage. Beyond the first few natural bonding years, relationship stability depends on values for companionship such as shared interests and attitudes. The theory of “Birds of a feather, flock together” is best supported in human relationship studies. People gravitate towards and are happier with those who are alike to themselves.
Not everything matters. For example, similarity on certain personality traits such as agreeableness, conscientiousness, and openness are a good indicator for a long term stable relationship. However, some other traits such as emotional instability doesn’t show any similarity advantage in couple’s relationship.
The best way to find compatibility and get a good read of someone is through activities of common interest, ideally in a group setting where a group interaction can be observed. A little guidance on the important areas and aspects to pay attention to, as well as other people’s behaviors serve as extra benchmarks on top of your own gut feelings for evaluation.
