Your mind and circumstances are completely different. You can change your attitude, but can't change external forces beyond your actions. There is no logical evidence behind any of this to support the claims.

“In accord with other research showing that similarity leads to liking, the crucial determinant of interactional satisfaction was neither the mood of the subject nor the mood of the partner, but their similarity in mood.” 1990: http://psycnet.apa.org...

“Assortative mating increases the probability of finding a genetically similar mate. The aim of some human mate selection strategies is “self seeking like” (including matching for attractiveness).” 2004: http://www.epjournal.net...

“Studies about attraction indicate that people are strongly attracted to look-alikes in physical and social appearance ("like attracts like"). The more similar in bone-structure, characteristics, life goals, ethnicity, and appearance, the happier people are in a relationship.” 2006: https://www.boundless.com...

In case my opponent did not deliberately forfeit, I will rest my case for now. I hope the audience realizes I have satisfied my BoP.

I don't think it's fair to continue making arguments once my opponent has forfeited. I am glad my point has been proven. Happy holidays!
