This article says we end up with the same people

Psychologists say they have found that people tend to go for partners with personalities similar to their own, and that even when this is taken into account, people’s former and new partners tend to be alike in character. In other words, it might not be a complete surprise that your friend’s new boy- or girlfriend seems just as obnoxious as the last.

Wound-mates?

I don't r agree. I mean I agree to an extent, but not really, cos i know your exes can differ by a LOT.

Maybe in the real world, but I only chased someone who would reciprocate no matter their personality.

yes and no. my SO and at least one of the LOs have exactly the opposite personality than myself. opposites really attract each other. on the other hand, both SO and the recent LO have the very same personality types.
I'm limerence free and I'm not afraid of it anymore. I learn something new about myself and life everyday. There is hope and so much more. NC works. Be free, be happy! In retrospect, the LE was about the best thing that happened in my life.
