    They mostly don’t actually look alike, they’re just dressed alike.

    I’m not that into guys who look like me, but then let’s face it: not many people are.

    The problem with Tumblr sites like this is that, while some of these men might be boyfriends, not all are. Case in point, the 4th from the top image (the tattooed bearded boys); one is a straight male model Ricky Hall and the men just happen to look exactly alike.

    I don’t think they look so much alike as they just are militant about following whatever new trend emerges. The fades, the 1920s hairstyles, the beards, etc.

    I’m sure they wear peacoats, skinny jeans and leather boots in the winter, then switch them for tank tops, jorts and high tops in the summertime……yawn.

    Hey all of you trendoids: normcore is the current fad/trend. Here’s a newsflash: develop your own lasting elegant style. Not be another follower . But that would require be different.

    I recall going to Starbucks in West Hollywood, getting a Venti Latte and sitting back on the outside patio watching the West Hollywood Twin Parade. Of course, it wasn’t an official sort of thing, but it was seriously unnerving to watch scads of men walk the streets with their nearly identical twin.

    narcissexual…I like that, heh. but uh… I don’t know if it’s necessarily narcissism…more of like an extreme version of “birds of a feather flock together” – people like to spend time with people they have stuff in common with…

    There was a DaveyWavey video about this on youtube a while back, featuring a couple often mistaken as brothers when out in public.

    I think there’s two things going on here – 1) people are often attracted to other similar people. One example: Blue-eyed guys are biologically more attracted to people with blue eyes, whereas people with brown eyes have been found to have no preference in aggregate attraction. Etc.

    2) Having partner, you’re inevitably going to start ‘looking’ a little bit more like them, wearing more similar clothes and maybe even sharing some similar grooming/exercise habits (ie sharing hair stylists, being influenced by spending time with your partner and deciding to grow a beard, going to the gym together, etc.)

    So I don’t think it’s pure narcissism, and if you look at straight people, some of these same things happen to them, too… except they end up looking like brother and sister. LOL.

    I’d rather go with some compatibility as far as interests or outlook on life. Plus, I don’t have a wide enough dating pool to eliminate the ones who don’t look like me. But, hey, if they’re happy, why not? I’m more the classic “opposites attract” paradigm–being tall and kind of lanky, I’m attracted to shorter guys with wrestler builds. Though I do find a guy with a similar personal library sexy.

    SAME SEX LOVE AND THE PATH TO WHOLENESS by Hopcke
    (AMAZON.com).
    Pg170 – 183

    Gay Relationships (Blue-Red, Yellow-Green) are two halves of “single archetype” that seek
    reunification.

    There is the union of sames, the reunion of the vertical axis which would heal the split spirit.
    The split between the puer and senex calls for a particular type of restoration

    the union of:
    -possibility with attainability,
    -aspiration with perspective,
    -imagination with realization,
    -phantasy with phenomena,
    -The Divine Child and Paternal Saturn.

    “Clinging to my hero as to a tall, protective, good-natured elder brother in a rough place.”

    Healing the Split.

    “Wait – do we look alike?”

    The Double Archetype
    Visionary Love by Mitch Walker (amazon.com, google, and youtube)

    Have you ever been in love, had any lovers? Every lover contains a spirit. This spirit-being can be a potentially great ally for each of us in our quest. He can become your soul-guide, leading you to personal wholeness.

    You can find him when ever you’re strongly turned-on by another man. He’s your Double, your exact reflection, your soul twin. Because reflection are always the reverse image, he’s also your complement;

    the inner form your exporter appearance, the sensuality to your intellect, the oldness to your youthfulness, the white your black, the other pole to each of your ego identified attributes, yet he’s all this as your twin, your identical copy.

    This is this magical form, “the secret sharer of my life, my second self” as the story-teller Joseph Conrad described him once (in his tale “The Secret Sharer”).

    If you’d like your Double to become an ally, you must first realizes his existence in you as a vital brain function. Every time you get that sexy loving urge for a man, this reveals the pull of your Double archetype. He has control of your ego, in that he make you attracted for somebody iiregardless of how you ego feels about it. He casts a spell over you.

    As long as he has control in this way, he won’t become your soul-guide. In face, he’ll keep you from fulfilling personal wholeness. This basic insight about the trap in juvenile romances is revealed in the many great stories about lovers, whether they be homo or hetero. In The Epic of Gilgamesh, Romeo and Juliet, The Iliad, Tristan and Isold, juvenile romances end in death.

    So you’ve got to pull free of your Double’s mesmeric spell. This doesn’t mean to stop loving others. Instead one must become more aware of the Double, having proper mediums and outlets for the Double to reveal his cerebral messages.

    There’s no need to rush it: just slowly and surely wake up to the fact that he exists. The best time to do this, of course, is when you’re projecting him onto another man. Romantic relationships can be the finest teachers.

    Love at First Sight: Why you love who you love
    by Suzi Malin (amazon.com)

    Harmonism “ Proportion” – In harmonism, the two people will share similar facial proportions.

    Echoisim “Shape” – In echoism, the two people will resemble each other

    Prima Copulism “First Bond” – In prima copulism, a person will be attracted to someone who resemble their first bond.

    We react as if by instinct to people whose facial proportions are the same as our own, whose features mirror ours, or whose appearance stirs a deep memory of the person who offered us love and care.

    So often, in an endeavor to be lovable, individuals try to change in order to fulfill what they imagine the requirements of their partners to be – and this can be at the expense of their self-esteem.

    When one is successfully matched, there is no need to adapt. One can love and be loved by another without losing oneself in the process.

    The joy of being able to be one’s true self might be the greatest gift – and reward – of truly loving and being love.

    I think it’s sweet. In college, I lived across the hall from two super-jock brothers who could have been twins. They were life-long monogamous lovers. Well-adjusted, smart, cute, talented … they had it all. And no, there’s no sad ending. My ex is the President of the Alumni Association. He told me they showed up for an Alumni weekend, looking JUST as hot at SEVENTY as they did at eighteen.
