Why Do People Date Look-Alikes?
The Daily Beast put together a slideshow of celebrities who have a pattern of dating/marrying people who all look alike. In some cases, the resemblance is striking (David Blaine’s ex’s Josie Maran and Fiona Apple; Johnny Carson’s second and third wives, Joanne and Joanna, respectively). In other cases, the resemblance is limited to hair color or some other general physical feature (most, if not all, of Lance Armstrong’s exes are blonde, but other than that they don’t look all that similar). All this got me thinking: do you think people who date look-alikes — similar to people who date others who look familial — do so because they genuinely have a type, or do you think there’s a subconscious (or conscious) effort to recreate a former relationship or ex?
