I Look Like My Father

    I Hate to Say It But It's True...

    I look very similiar to my father as much as I don't like to admit that I do. I have my mother's hair and her smile, but everything else comes from my birth father. Especially my eyes. That's also my most distinguishing feature, so no matter who knows me, just by my eyes they...

    Idk How It Happened

    I used to be the split image of my dad when i was young. So much so that if you put our baby pictures together we looked like identical twins. But as ive gotten older, I now look more like my mom. Its completely weird. When im not wearing makeup i still kinda look like my dad...

    Happy

    My Father died when I was 5 weeks old. It makes me feel good to know that I can look in the mirror and see my father. It makes me feel good for people to tell me I look like him.

    I Have To See The Evidence

    Because I don't look liek my mother, except the thick hair. She was dark-haired, with brown eyes, and a tan, a spanish woman, born in Oran. I'm nearly blonde, light brown with blonde hair in it. I have blue eyes. And skin is pale. Then I'm not sure who my father is. My father on...

    It's Not That Bad to Look Like Dad

    Both me and my dad have small clefts in our chins (his is obscured by a beard) and the same foot structure. When we were coming home from my work the other night in the car,he said to me ''you look very smart. you look like me'' which sounded quite weird because I have...

    Carbon Copy

    I'm a carbon copy of my dad. I hate it though. My dad still to this day brags that I look just like him and takes after him, and friends of my parents make comments about how I'm a carbon copy of my dad. One of my parents' friends made a joke when I was a kid that I should've...

    Carbon Copy

    I Tried to Deny It

    I spent many years denying it. But, I can't put it off really we have the same sense of laughter and tastes in music too. so I suppose all hopes of pulling off the fact that we're in no way related will never happen. He used to be blonde until he went grey. I was all blonde curls...

    A Bit.

    I've been told that I look a lot like both my parents, but I think I resemble my father more. I have his texture of skin (albeit my mother's paleness), thick dark hair, Danish eyes... and while I'm not tall, I'm not short and squatty like my mother. My dad's hair is longer...

    Exactly Alike!

    My mom has showed me pictures of my dad at my age; I really do look exactly like him. My dad is a tall guy, always lean like an athlete or something. He has jet-black hair and stone gray eyes. The only difference is skin tone; my dad is always tan…lol. I think he came up with...

    I Look Like My Father

    and that disturbs me. I do not want to look in the mirror and be able to see his face. I wish I did not look like him. I would like to forget him. I also always fear that I am like him inside. Though I know it is not true, I tell myself that I am like him. I could have been...

    My body just didn't have that plan for me. I'm happy the way my body looks even if it doesn't look like a Victoria's Secret model's body. I love the way I look.

    Yup. That's right. I will never be able to look like a Victoria Secret model so yeah, get over it. To be honest, I don't think I am that interested in looking like one.
