Because everyone wants to be an individual, no one really wants to be compared to another person. :) everyone says my daughter looks just like me, but she'll tell you no I don't look anything like my mother, kind of the same way everyone says I look like my mother and I'll say no I don't, I don't look anything like my mother.

One of the check-out girls at the local grocery stared at me when she first saw me and said I looked like...and I said, "Roger Whittaker."

I do; I know it; and I enjoy his songs and voice, and I have some of his albums.

My oldest boy once brought me a picture from the newspaper that looked like I could have been the guy's twin brother.

----I've never thought one way or the other about having a doppelganger.

Unless they remember the features and connect.  Actually for people to remember and connect? The person has make impression on them first.

I think it might be because some people focus on their perceived flaws. By comparing them to others they either don't see that "flaw" in that person, or it brings the "flaw" to their attention. 

Or they really don't look much like that person. I had someone tell me I look like my mom. We have the same body shape and that is where the similarity ends. I have thin, reddish blonde hair, fair skin with freckles, and a round face with blue eyes. My mom has a medium skin tone. She has thick hair that was brunette before she turned gray. Her face is oval and she has brown eyes. We do have the same nose.
