Rooster and I went kayaking on our honeymoon, and the guide asked if we were brother and sister. We’re taller, fairskinned and have dark hair but I don’t think we look alike.

i look nothing like my SO.

but my parents kinda favor (dark blonde hair, brown eyes, same skin tone, same build), so my brother and I kinda favor (blond, brown eyes, same build, same skin tone).

shockingly, my brother’s Fiance looks more like him than I do.  She and I look very similar, except she has my brother’s unique angular nose.  they could probably pass as fraternal twins.

in fact, when my brother, his Fiance, and I all went to my cousin’s wedding together, my grandmother (who’s a little loopy and doesn’t get to see us very often) thought my bro’s FI was me and started calling her by my name.  pretty funny.

I don’t look anything like Fiance either.  Fiance is tall, tan, and a red-head.  I am very petitie, pale, with dark hair.

@swtTea: LOL I loved that you went and double-checked to make sure you weren’t related!

My husband and I look nothing alike.  I am tanned with black hair, brown eyes, and round features (eyes, mouth, face — I often joke I have no chin), and he is fair-skinned and freckly with brown hair, hazel eyes, and a long-ish face.

@msnelson13That happened to me too.  My cousin’s wife, my other cousin and I look very much alike (same built too) so my uncles have a hard time telling us apart.  One of my uncles was talking to me about something for an hour then got up in my face when he realized I was his brother’s daughter! He was so shock I thought he saw a ghost or something! Everyone was rolling on the floor. haha

We have always been told that we look so much alike. I used to think that people assumed that we were related because we both have dark hair and dark eyes but we do have some similar features too…

Nope not at all. Yes we share similar features (like dark hair & eyes) but we are veeeeeeeeeeeeeery different.

He’s tall, thin, olive skinned with brown eyes & black hair.

I’m short, thin, with translucently pale skin, green&brown eyes & brown hair.

 

I have never actually heard of people making the sibling comment to dating/engaged couples… I mean, you would have to pretty close with your sibling to hold hands/kiss/hug/cuddle etc in public haha.

@lampshade, I totally concur with tessemasgirl!! OMG. LOL. You guys also make a very attractive couple though, so it works out!

My Fiance and both have dark hair, but that is really the only similarity. I once read a study however, that humans tend to be attracted to people that share the same characteristics as themselves. Often you will see couples with very similar noses. For whatever reason, that is a subconsious attractiveness quality. And studies have shown that couples that tend to look similar also tend to have the most successful marriages. Weird eh??

SO is Asian and I’m Caucasian. . .we both have pinchable cheeks when we smile, but that’s about it.

I was a Bridesmaid or Best Man for a friend who looks A LOT like her SO.  Some of the people we went to school with used to tease her that she was marrying her brother.

Hubby and I don’t look alike but I dated a guy in high school that everyone thought was my brother.  At first we just laughed it off but then it got kinda creepy for us at least (I’m not trying to say looking like your SO is creepy so please don’t take it that way :))
