It's the Monday after a busy weekend of meeting with friends :) How are you all? I hope you're doing well. I'm personally horrible at documenting my shenanigans, so I just rely on my friends to post on social media. I'm a bit of a dud when it comes to keeping everyone updated on my life, which I guess is pretty ironic, seeing as I am a blogger.
Today's topic, I wanted to touch on something a little abstract, and I want to hear if anyone else has had this kind of experience.
Have you ever met someone who was just so similar to someone you know, that you're almost scared? We'll call the person I know person X, and this person that I met person Y. Long story short, I was madly in love with person X, but it didn't work out. Then I met person Y.
The first thing that struck me about person Y was that he looked pretty similar to person X. They both had bushy eyebrows, smile-y eyes, a tall nose, and small lips. Their face shape was different, and they were very distinctly different people, but I wouldn't have put it past them to be related. After all, they did have the same last name, but I suppose their last name is a fairly common one.
And then person Y spoke. Their voices were exactly the same. The tone and pitch of their voices are pretty distinct, and it really surprised me that someone else sounded like that. As he kept talking, I could almost envision person X speaking. Not only were their voices the same, but their manner of speaking and even what they spoke about were the same! I won't lie, I went onto person X's Facebook that night to see if I could find person Y. No dice. I was pretty shaken. How can two people be so similar?
To be honest, person Y was a rebound date, and a pretty obviously unhealthy one. I did end up going on a few more dates with person Y, but I knew I needed to get over person X, not keep falling in love with him via a doppelganger! My friend joked, "Well, in Job, what Satan takes away, God returns in ten-fold. Maybe person Y is 10x better than person X." I'm not sure that's how it works, but it made me laugh.
Have you had an experience with a doppelganger of yourself or a friend? If so, I'd love to hear about it!
