A couple years ago a girl who had had a thing for my SO way before I knew him (they were never together) was dating a guy that looked remarkably like him.  It was kind of funny.  No idea if they’re still togehter. I guess some people just have a really defined type.

One of my exes married a girl who is apparently my long-lost twin. My brother even did a double take when photos of them started popping up on FB. It didn’t help that my ex and I were still dating at the time. Needless to say, I think I got the better end of the deal. She got a cheater, I got my AWESOME fiance!

Why are you creeped out? You’re the one stalking him! Ha.

 

Furthermore, to assume him dating her has anything to do with you is just…weird.

I think we are attracted to certain physical qualities and end up seeking similar looking partners.

@MeiFrancis:  Meh…he’s got a type, whatever…..one of my best friends is a retired lover from college, he dates women that look, act, sound like me and then tells me in great detail how they add up/fail….it’s just one of those things…

I’ve only ever dated men with facial hair and blue eyes….it’s a thing.

@MissFemmeFatale:  Kind of agree with this.  

Regardless, I don’t think there’s any reason to be creeped out about it. Maybe he has a “type”. If anything, take it as a compliment!

Haha my Fiance saw a picture of his ex somewhere with her new husband and their baby and her husband looked SO MUCH like my FI!! It was pretty funny.

 I was “the clone” once! I was dating a guy, and Myspace (lol, a long time ago) his ex, and I was her twin! I got weirded out and ended up confronting him about it.

The whole thing made him realize he wasn’t over her, and now they’re happily married. I feel proud for helping them!

Ha! He clearly has a “type”! I have noticed that my exes date women who look a lot like me, and if any of my exes check out my FB page, they would notice that they have a lot of similar features to my FI!

@MeiFrancis:  YES! He was a good friend prior to us seeing eachother, and we didnt date super long. We’ll call him Dan. Like 2 weeks after we called it off, he shows up at my work (I was a bartender at the time) with a girl who could have passed for my sister: at that time, my hair was still black and was cut in kind of Kris Jenner style, and so was this girls! He introduced us and I said “you have great taste in haircuts!” to which she replied “thank you! I actually just got it cut yesterday, took off 8 inches! Dan told me it would look great on me!”

They didnt date super long either and he and I stayed friends. At one point she came up in convo and I flat out asked him what the deal was with her hair, and he said “well, I’d liked that haircut alot on *you*, so I told her she’d look good with it and she did it.”

Maybe you were just his type?  So other women that have similar attributes as you would be his type too…?
