People say they want a person who complements them, rather than mirrors their own talents and traits. However, a new study from eHarmony reveals that we actually want someone with very similar qualities to ourselves.

Interestingly, women care much more than men about finding a partner who shares their same traits, including ethnicity, education and income level.
