Despite the saying about opposites attracting, people usually fall in love with people like themselves. . . .  [During their blind date], Harold and Erica quickly discovered they had a lot in common. . . . People generally overestimate how distinct their own lives are, so the commonalities seemed to them a series of miracles.  The coincidences gave their relationship an aura of destiny.

(From the new book, The Social Animal, by David Brooks.)
