    What are y'alls take on this? Bizarre, narcissistic, or just plain normal?

    It seems in the gay world "opposites attract" or "your different qualities complement mine" don't seem to apply.

    Is your boyfriend your lookalike? Do people assume you're brothers or even twins?

    Lovers that look alike are believed in the esoteric world be soul mates.

    I had a boyfriend who looked just like me a few years ago. Everybody assumed we were brothers. It was not only the looks, but also the personality. It became too weird and we split. Then I didn't want to do the same mistake and my next boyfriend was a asian muscled man in his 40's haha.

    LOL I could see how that would be awkward...but I'm hoping you're not dating someone that doesn't look like you just to avoid being called "brothers" 'cuz that would just be going to the other extreme.

    I guess I'm just wondering why this occurs more often in the gay world. Usually with straight couples, I see how the couples are different in looks and personality and they "complement" each other. For instance, my mom is the nurturing, affectionate guardian, while my father is the authoritative disciplinarian. My dad is from the slums and my mom is from a rich, upper class family.

    I get that there should be some common interests but wouldn't it get boring dating someone just like you?

    Eh... It looks kind of weird to me but love is love and if these guys really did care about each other, all the power to them. icon_smile.gif Me personally, I could never date a clone of myself. I like seeing opposites attract couples in both the gay and straight world. It just means that despite looking different, you can still find love in the most unlikely people. I think it would get boring if you dated someone who looked exactly like you but that's just me. Plus, I already have a twin brother (fraternal) of my own. I remember when we were toddlers to halfway elementary, people would always get us mixed up until we found our own identities.
