Note: Same as all the love calculators on the internet, this calculator is based on a ridiculous algorithm and it is for amusement only. Please follow your heart instead of the scores given out by this love calculator for love.

In general, we are attracted to people like ourselves. Middle-class people go for similarly middle-class types, and we look for those, within our class, who like the same kind of clothes, or music, or environment. Of course, sometimes we find ourselves very attracted to those who are totally unlike us, really opposites, and that's because we seek change and stimulation.

Some say that we seek people like ourselves to form a more stable union, and to have children like ourselves. Well-known actresses pair up with rock stars, for example, because such men tend to be as rich and famous as they are.

But the challenge of the unknown is great. Some say that we tend to fall in love with those who are mysterious and challenging to us, because they come to us with a very different gene pool. So the children will benefit from broader genetic input. But there's no scientific proof for such assertions.

Physical features are important to both sexes, but a bit more so to men. There is some scientific basis for this. According to Louann Brizendine, a clinical professor of psychiatry at the University of California, San Francisco, and the author of "The Female Brain, the male brain processes the female image, while the female brain takes in a good looking male, but also shows judgmental activity, thinking about the guy's character at the same time.

Love does take over most of your brain activity, Brizendine says, and once it has you hooked, it doesn't let you go. It keeps your chemicals hopping, which is why you can't seem to get the other person out of your head.

But all the scientists admit that there's no real hard explanation for why one person goes for another, as opposed to another one. There will never be a science of love, nor any way to calculate what the results will be. So let your mind and your heart decide.
