Who does LO look like, who does LO make you think of ?

Hello,

(when I say "look like", it doesn't mean only physically, it can be, but it can be anything which make you think of someone else).

This poll, because in the beginning, I often wondered who LO looked like.
For example, when I met my SO, I thought he looked a bit like one of my brother.

But with LO, I've never been able to place the resemblance exactly.
Probably a mix of my SO, my father, my two brothers, even one of my half-brother... and myself (and maybe even my mother, why focusing on persons of the same sex as LO, after all ?). He definitely didn't look like a total stranger to me.
In that respect, I suppose I've been lucky and it was healthier to have a SO who looked just a tiny bit like my brother, but didn't look that much like my family.

But in fact, when I met LO, the first impression was that with him, I could have the same kind of conversations I had with a platonic friend I had when I was fifteen years old. (So the first impression was that he was a bit like this friend, but he's really different from this guy in fact).
That's how I get caught. Nostalgia about when I was young, and could have this kind of friendship.

So you can chose as many options as you want. I'm sure I'm going to realize after clicking the "submit" button that I forgot many options I should have included, but right then I can't seem to find something to add.

(I've enabled the option allowing to change one's vote, so if you already voted and it looks like you didn't, it's normal)

First LO had characteristics of mother and younger sister, but was blonde like a cousin's wife to whom I was much attached in my teens.

Second LO had characteristics of a cousin that I felt a warm connection with and additionally looked a fair amount like SO.

I did a test once that was interesting, thanks to this modern digital age. I found photos of mother, sister, relevant cousins, SO, 3 ex GFs and both LOs. I digitally cropped their faces so that only their eyes remained. Pretty creepy the similarities.

My LO could be mistaken for my cousin: similar coloring, height :-?

My LO doesn't look like anyone else. I was attracted to her because she seemed unique. She shaves the side's of her head and spikes her hair up. Dyes it different colors. Tattoos too. I liked her because she seemed different. I wonder if she had long hair, uncolored, with no tattoos, would I of looked twice? Weird. In terms of character she has alcohol problems. My mother is an alcoholic. I think she may be on the spectrum too. My brother is a high functioning autistic.

My LO does not physically look like anyone else to me, except maybe his eyes. However his personality, mannerism, passions, quirks, and interests all remind me of myself, my father, and other LOs who were likely all “chosen” by me for the same reasons.

interesting question, never thought of that. now, i'm thinking she reminds me of a cousin, even the same first name. however, i don't like that name much and i didn't care for that cousin either (she is from the family that i find strange). she is nice though. i have a weakness for nice petite types.
