You've heard about the likes of Zodiac signs, mystics, and tarot cards telling fortunes, right? But have you ever heard of a soothsaying optical illusion? This unassuming illusion of a man and a woman will supposedly tell you the future of your love life based on who you see when you first look at the design. 

The results, which are calculated on your gender and what you actually see,    will apparently reflect your current love life and what's in store for you. Whether you're in need of a lover, bromance or some time to yourself, this illusion will let you know what you might be looking for even if you didn't know it yet. And while we certainly aren't taking it as gospel, or going to let it take a spot in our pick of the best optical illusions anytime soon, it's certainly, ahem, interesting.
