No my Fiance is nothing like my dad,but after about age 11,me and my dad started to have a really strained relationship,and even now when we meet up we keep the conversation civil but not exactly personal (something which we are both working on)

The one thing they do have in common though is that they are both quite openly afectionate,or touchy feely you could say. My dad still tries to hold my hand when were out having lunch or something,even though Im 22 and it does make me feel a little uncomfortable. I have to remind him Im a grown woman,not 8 anymore!!!

They have the exact same sense of humor. It’s kind of scary sometimes. I learned just to roll my eyes and shake my head at both of them.

My Fiance is a lot like my dad in the way they view life. In fact there have been quite a few times when one will say something and then a couple hours later the other will say the same exact phrase!!! Pretty creepy!!! But my dad is awesome so I am honored that my Fiance has the same ideology towards parenting and other aspects that my dad has. However, he is not tooooo much like him. when we have sex I do not picture my dad.lol. I say it’s normal and relax a little about it….. No worries.Wink

NOPE. That was by my design. My father really didn’t have many redeeming qualities, so I purposley chose someone who was the opposite and I’m so blessed.

They are similar in a lot of ways, and enjoy hanging out together fishing and working on cars. I wouldn’t have it any other way, cuz my dad has been the #1 man in my life for most of it, til hubs came along. I couldn’t imagine being with someone my family (especially my dad) didn’t approve of or like

I’m in the same boat as a few of the other bees…my Fiance has quite a few of my dad’s good characteristics (same type of sense of humor, smart with finances, super into researching things before he makes decisions, very intelligent), but doesn’t have his bad ones.

I am so grateful Mr.TKE is NOTHING like my father. My father is just the biggest @$$ in the world. The only reason I even still talk to him is that my step-mother is manageable.

My Fiance and my dad are nothing alike as far as appearance. My Fiance is blond, my dad is brunette, my Fiance likes hunting and fishing, my dad likes basketball and baseball, my Fiance is very good at fixing things, my dad not so much, etc. But they are similar in personality. Neither of them get angry very often or easily and they both tell corny jokes. My Fiance tells me I’m like his mom in some ways.

My dad and my man are A LOT alike. But I like that. I’m really really close with my dad, and we see him at least twice a week. My dad is great, and he also stayed home with me when I was little. My SO is also very good with kids, very even tempered, very responsible and committed. <3

My Fiance reminds me a lot of my dad!

  • They are both built the same:  about 5’10” and super skinny (although my dad is quite a bit skinnier than FI)
  • They both love the outdoors and were boy scouts as kids
  • They are in intellectual fields (as am I), my dad is a mathematician and Fiance is studying electrical engineering
  • They both love to travel and have great senses of humor

Funnily, my Fiance also reminds me of my sister!  They both worry way more than I do, and have very similar senses of humor.  But I feel like the reason Fiance is so much like members of my family, is simply because he just fits in so well with all the people I love!

I met my birth father this past boxing day for the first time. Him and my fiance are sooo much alike. They both have the same profession, both are layed back, good with money, a little goofy, have the same morals and values. Its pretty weird, in a really great way. My fiance is a great man and turns out, so is my father. How’s that for odd??
