The headline "Are You Compatible? Order a Pizza Together" caught my eye. I thought this might be about how couples order pizza together is indicative of the kind of relationship they had. Like, if a woman insisted on pepperoni and mushrooms and a guy wanted mushrooms and sausage, they might compromise and order a Canadian bacon pizza with mushrooms. That compromise would indicate a healthy relationship, as opposed to a relationship where one person had to have anchovies or nothing at all.
Then I read the article and learn that this is all the study yielded:
For example, those who prefer more non-traditional topping combinations, such as pineapple and onion, are most romantically compatible with people who prefer similar non-traditional toppings.
If you prefer traditional single-meat toppings like pepperoni, your ideal match is a person who likes a pizza loaded with meat toppings -- someone who is extroverted.
I guess if anyone is about to get married they should find out what kind of pizza toppings their future spouse enjoys. Canadian bacon people coupled with Spinach people have a higher rate of divorce than two Pineapple people.
I learned that from Dominos. By the way, I know papers really want to find news stories with a Valentine's Day angle, but this is pushing it. Really really pushing it.
