I think there is definitely some truth to this. I remember reading that we look for partners with similar traits to our gender-opposite parent; It is probably something to do with subconsciously seeing those traits as good parenting and wanting offspring to be raised and/or cared for by someone with those traits. It may also be that, inter-personally, we are more used to working with and being around a particular personality, so when we find people who have that same personality we naturally get along with them and possibly even feel a sense of understanding with them.
