Would you date yourself?

If there is a person who is exactly like you, just of the opposite sex... would you date him/her?

Why or why not? :P

Updates:
I personally... I think I would, even though it would be difficult and nothing would get done with two lazy assholes line me
*bump*

  • Yes definitely :) I mean the reason i tend to get bored pretty easily with people I like is because we don't have that much in common and don't really have the same values and such. I know one of my best friends is very similar to me (in fact we have the same myers-briggs personality type) I really do enjoy life 100x more whenever I hang out with her, so I sort of have some kind of idea of what it would be like, so I guess if she/I was a guy and attractive to me then I would date, no doubt. Always wanted a relationship where we would be like best friends (aren't those the best relationships? :P )

  • No, that's just weird, haha. Being with someone JUST like myself would get frustrating. I'd like to be with someone that I have some similarities with, but can show me new things as well.

    • You would date KIVANΓ‡ TATLITUĞ. Check him out if you wonder who this handsome man girls die for is.

  • I have Dated and Mated Many guys who I have shared Similar Traits with but Never One, hun, who Was... Exactly like me.
    I am Unique in my own Way and to be with Someone, who was "Exactly like you," would Not make my Life... Interesting One bit.
    Good luck and Thank you for the Shout, @Yumix. xx

  • errr... probably not.
    At first, I think sure, why not. I like to think that I'm a pretty good girlfriend and would love to be on the receiving end of some of the things I do once in a while. Until I realize that if I were to be with someone who (willingly) bends over backwards so much (figuaratively speaking) to make sure that their s/o is happy, it'd be like a constant tug of war. If I were to date myself, I can imagine us (?) getting in fights mostly because we both want to be the one obliging the other. :P

  • 😱! Not in a million years!!!

    I'd be crazy to date someone as immature as me.. 😨!!!

  • my boyfriend is very much like me... but we aren't exactly alike. we have a ton in common, though we have enough differences to keep things interesting; if he was exactly the same as me, we'd have nothing to offer each other.

    that's why i'm going to say no, i wouldn't date myself. even though she's charming, witty, and awesome, things would stagnate rather quickly.

  • I thought my ex was like the male version of me... It was great to start with but near the end we clashed so much! We were different in ways of course but we were both really ditsy πŸ˜‚ I'd rather date someone with a few common interests but not exactly like me, I'm a geek but I wouldn't wanna date a geek. Also I'm annoying as hell! I couldn't put up with me πŸ˜‚

  • Haha well, if there would be I wouldn't. I need the little differences too. I love the unique things in people. The own preferences and cute little ways of being. It would be weird if the guy also looked like me. I once met a guy who looked a lot like me, he was really ugly though. I was not at all attracted to him and when he tried to flirt with me I was almost throwing up because it was so strange. He would probably have answered yes to this question.

  • I would, and there would be sooooo many great things about the relationship since we would both be chill and not clingy or needy in the least, also not jealous or paranoid when it comes to the relationship, BUT > we'd be stubborn and butt heads a lot I think... But only 1 negative in a sea of positives - may just work. xD

  • I'd be interested in myself IF I got the chance to know me. (I'm reserved, so, I'd be in the back doing my own thing)
    BUT Would I last with me, I don't know, I'm not very patient but I'm annoying as fudge. And I don't know if I pump for like 30 minutes or whatever to get me off. I dunno. I think my boyfriend is the right amount of patient and dedicated so, he's the perfect one :)

  • No, I'm too indecisive. I need someone to pick stuff like what to have for dinner and such. Plus I'm too nice, I like a little spice to contrast my personality and drive me a little crazy in a good way. This is probably just because I found a guy like this because I really do like myself. I'd for sure be friends with someone just like me!

    • I saw your comment on another question where you said you'd date yourself... Once of the reasons why I asked this :p

    • Show All
    • @redeyemindtricks if you were born a guy, people would treat you differently based on your gender. Nurture would come into play and change a lot of you, also in coversation you wouldn't always be on the same wavelength since you're experiencing the situation from two perspectives.

    • yeah -- I mean, I attribute certain parts of my own personality to growing up with just men (widowed father + 4 brothers). But... again, it's hard to tell how much of that stuff to keep in a question like this, vs. how much to transform according to a hypothetical different nurture, vs. how much to throw out altogether.

  • Why would I want to date myself? I like myself and all, but I want to be with someone who pushes me to be a better person. I wouldn't be able to do that for myself because I have all the same flaws and attitudes on everything.

  • In the past i would say absolutely not. Now I'd say maybe, I'm becoming a happier person overall and it would be amazing to have someone who would get excited about the same things and upset about others. I think it would be a nice temporary relationship :)

  • I would date the male version of myself, yes.

    I'm pretty laid back, open minded, respectful, loyal, caring, have a decent sense of humor, and enjoy a wide variety of activities. I'm always open to learning new things, and I seek that in a partner as well as the other things I mentioned.

  • I'd like to say it'd be great. I'd like to say we'd get along just swell and we would just write music all day and we'd be understanding of each other's problems perfectly.

    However, if they were exactly like me, it may cause some issues. It may cause a sort of rivalry which could turn from friendly into bitter. Similar is nice, but I think same is pushing it. If similar leads to compatibility, I'd say same leads to annoyance.

    I'm guessing dating a female version of me would be one of those things that seem like a great idea at first that turn out to be bad later on πŸ˜…

  • I divide my time between being distant, being availible but refusing to open up or being monstrously clingy, the latter is especially true when the other person is being distant. Generally I fluctuate between feeling suffocated and feeling ignored with no in between, I have a general philosophy of trying to be dependent on as little as possible making me a boring person in all aspects but in-depth philosophical discourse which I enjoy to the point that you will want to rip your ears off, while at the same time being so non-functional that I'll need a person to constantly be my babysitter and as self deprecating as I am I will be ridiculously defensive and sensitive when under personal attacks from someone else. I am basically the archetypal bad partner

  • No, I wouldn't date myself from the opposite sex, because I want to date a girl who is feminine and complements me instead of being my female twin.

    If I was a woman I would date a guy like me though since while I do have my flaws and weirdness, I think I am definitely in the upper bracket of men out there in terms of kindness, love, masculinity, looks and intelligence.

    • @Afro-dite9

      Here is too unattractive guy. Right here.

  • Exactly like me? No, but they gotta have at least a few things in common.

    I think dating a person just like me would be just as boring as dating someone with nothing in common. There'd be nothing to learn about if a person was a mirror image of me just like thered be nothing to talk about if there was no common interests.
