Do your exes resemble each other? Is there a pattern?

I've noticed there's a pattern in guys that I like and date. They all kinda resemble each other, being personality wise or even physically. I was so unaware of this until a friend of my pointed it out. And she said the same goes for her. And now that I think about it, all of them were tall, skinny, goofy, cocky, artistic kinda types. It seems that only these types of guys are mutually interested in me back, because some others that I also liked but didn't fit into this category weren't interested in me. So, how about you?

  • Yes there has been a similarity personality wise - They were very flirty often like they were putting on a show but when you dug deeper there was a much realer personality that you could go "You can trust me enough to show your real self not the image you think other people want to see".

  • In looks they are very different from each other. Though I guess there are some traits that most of them share.

    Almost all of my "romances" happen in the same way, as if I am watching same movie again just with different actors, when I start it I already know how It will end.
    It is like a deja vu. I try to change stories but It is hard as long as almost all of them have similar, complex personality.

    I wish I could change this pattern easily, I mean I meet great guys, who could make me happy but I am not attracted to them that much.

  • Yeah, there's definitely too much of a pattern and I'm trying to break it actually. There were so many similarities that the issues were similar too. No luck so far finding a new type though, I have kind of the same issue that the type who likes me back are the same type I've been with before...

  • I haven't really dated in real life.
    But all of my Big crushes' name starts with M and all of them have a similar type of look. They're all North African Arabs (the 4 of them).
    Even my ex online love looks Arab haha but he's an Italian American and his name doesn't start with M.

  • A weak pattern. All different hair/eye color combos, skin color, upbringings, and though they have similar interests-those are very varied. They are all less than a year apart from me, and they mostly were more introverted.

  • Not so far. Closest thing to a pattern is my current boyfriend at times reminding me of my dad. Which is... worrying, I don't want my boyfriend to let me walk all over him like my dad let all HIS partners do.
