Have you ever found your twin?


Not your actual blood relative twin. Not someone who looks just like you (although if you did find someone who looks just like you, that would be an interesting story too, I guess. )

I think that one of the most compelling things about the internet is it opens up the world in a way that has never really been possible. Did you ever wonder really how unique you actually are? I don't mean to ask if you found someone EXACTLY like you down to the last detail. But I think most people really want to find someone who mirrors them. I think it's a basic desire everyone has. Probably even if you don't like yourself very much. It's still just an irresistible thing to ponder (IMO).

I guess maybe some people don't have to look very far or very hard. I don't know. I guess it depends on how "weird" you are.

I have observed some people who reminded me a little of myself in some ways but never really that close.

Addendum. I think I would say that maybe I've come (relatively) close on occasion. A few times even on this forum (though I rarely say anything). I think when you tell someone they remind you of yourself they don't think much of it or they think you're just trying to flatter them.

I’ve found a few people who were a lot like me, but it was mostly because they have some of the same social anxiety symptoms and not because of much else. I only read their posts on a Facebook group - I don’t know them. One looks a little bit like me but has a different hair colour.

I've been told I look like someone else a few times, and that someone saw/knew someone who looked like me. Two or three people who didn't know each other saw photos of me and said "You look like my English teacher!"

Someone else saw a photo of me and thought they had seen me in their gym, but it wasn't me. When I was told I looked like certain celebrities, I couldn't see it much, but I could see what they meant.

i've had a few people tell me i look just like their relative. they never showed me what their relative looks like, though.

it's probably better i never knew. their relative probably looked hideous or not even like me.

Also no not really though some people (very few,) get closer than others.

I keep seeing and have only ever seen this show through little youtube clips posted on forums. Mainly this lemongrab shouting (screaming, wailing?). And it seems pretty hilarious and over the top but I wonder if it's only hilarious because I am seeing it infrequently and out of context. Anyway, I digress, back to the topic.

I actually found a twin in my hometown of only 20k people. Less at the time. Had all the same hobbies, same interests, listened to the same music, had the same political views, born only a couple days apart, both socially awkward and anxious, had similar family dynamics, on and on and etc. It was uncanny. The major difference between us was I was 8" taller and 60 pounds heavier. And he eventually shed some of his anxieties, got a live in girlfriend, and went to work when I still am chasing the college education dream and a lonely *******. Oh well.

Yeah I've only seen clips on YouTube. Mostly Lemongrab related clips and a bunch of Bubbeline clips more recently. It has a kind of surreal quality. The creator of it (Pendleton Ward) apparently also worked on The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack which some guy I knew at uni was kind of obsessed with. This is my favourite clip though that was probably one of the first I found from it so random:


Also there are some great remixes:

Most people don't believe in this but I honestly believe I discovered my Twin Flame. It is a higher level of Soulmate. In fact a Soulmate is no comparison. It is like the person is the other half of your Soul and vice versa. In this connection you and your "twin" are alike. You reflect one another like a mirror. They see you in them and you see them in you. You can even have a sense of familiarity. A "home" kind of feeling. They know you more than you know yourself and vice versa. You think alike but it is express somewhat diffently. You like similar things. You even share some of the same inner hardships. At the same time you two are polar opposites complementing one another. One is the Divine Masculine while the other is the Divine Feminine. This is no average connection or anything simple as meeting someone so is like your average twin. It is BEYOND that. It is on a Spiritual Level. I don't expect people to believe and understand this.

No I haven't. but I haven't met enough people. I guess the girl I'm talking to now is the closest to me personality wise. But we're also very different. So no I can't say I've met my "twin" yet.

Interesting question for sure. Given what I know of myself. I'd be hard pressed to think I'd ever meet my "twin". That might be kind of scary.

Yeah this. That's kind of how I feel with this girl I've been with the past 14 months. She's like twin flame. We're similar in many ways but the polar opposite in others. But familiar. Red String of Fate too.
