So, my psychology professor said that we pick our partners that remind us of our parents. Ex: a girl picks a guy with similar characteristics or features of her father, unintentionally.
So do you think this is true?

well it all depends on how you grew up and how your parents treated you and such. your father more than likely was your first male role model SO there would probably be traits, at the very least subconsciously, that you would want in a potential mate because you saw them in your father and found them desirable based on how he treated you. That is not to say you are going to want to find someone exactly like your father, but there will probably be traits that line up... even traits you never really thought of before until you start making comparisons.1

My dad is an amazing example of a husband and father, and I may not have consciously gone into relationships looking for people with exactly the same characteristics, but I know I have certainly broken up with guys for not having them. so yes, sure.1
