inspired by :: http://boyfriendtwin.tumblr.com

There's a 'phenomenon' called boyfriend twins which are basically gay couples that look extremely similar, or 'lovers that look like brothers'.

I was wondering what everyone's take on this regarding dating?

Do you think it's narcissistic to go after someone with similar attributes to yourself? Is it just a case of two people being so similar that their tastes and lifestyles rub off on each other? Have you been the recipient of 'boyfriend twin' comments or 'omg u look so alike?!'

It's hilariously narcissistic.
I follow a guy who's boyfriend looks the same as him on twitter and have always wanted to post him on one of those blogs.

Are we sure some of those guys aren't just twins on that blog though? I'm suspicious of these guys: http://boyfriendtwin.tumblr.com/image/89717172733

I don't think there's anything wrong with falling in love with someone who happens to look similar to you and potentially has similar interests. Personally, I don't think I could date someone very similar to myself though.

Or maybe it's just a picture or twins that they are trying to pass off as Lovers that look alike.

It's weird! I'm not sure I'd call it narcissistic but certainly I'd be much too weirded out to date someone who looked so much like myself.

It would be far too weird for me, if they looked a lot like me and had the same interests even it'd be like a weird sci-fi/romcom hybrid where the main character dates a clone or something! But you must be at least slightly narcissistic to find someone who's virtually your mirror image that attractive laugh.gif

my type is pretty much guys that look like myself but a few stone bigger so I don't think I'd find it that weird actually, if they had the same interests as me as well then it'd only help as well laugh.gif the term 'opposites attract' really doesn't apply to me at all.

I can't say it's in line with MY TASTE (ie. I like twinky young beauties, I am none of those things) but whatever works for them I guess. I also think ending up with someone with a similar personality would be awful, but that's also probably because I need to be IN CHARGE (and yes, like that too) so it would only end in acrimony (and probably several heavily barbed verbal assaults).

I struggle to feel anything other than complete indifference. It is what it is. I'm sure the couple in the picture are very happy together, which I'd feel more comfortable focusing on.

as it stands just now i am nowhere near my type of person, but like most people i think the kind of people that i am attracted to are also the type of people i'd like to be (aka best version of yourself, but definitely more vague than SAME FACIAL FEATURES cmon!), so i can see why a lot of people would go out with people and then end up looking similar.

do you not think race aside that people can look extremely similar, due to the clothes they wear / the way they style facial hair / makeup / hair coloir and style etc? my friend has just went on a date with someone who is caucasian who has similar facial features to his ex-boyfriend who was egyptian, so i think type eludes race.

maybe i'm just not understanding the comment at all oop

oh right i get what you mean!!!! i thought you meant there was people who people thought looked similar but didn't realise they were both a different race so it was different or something (don't ask lmao). i actually do think they all kinda look alike, some more than others tbh but there's definitely repeating features

Maybe some of these didn't start like that but decided to grow a beard or have the same hairstyle, partly for funz or something?
