I've known for a while that I have "a type" that I'm attracted too.
Usually between 5-10 and 6-1.
Short, well groomed, brown/black hair.
Darker - olive tone - complexion.
Pretty generic, I suppose, but this past weekend when I (finally) showed my mother a picture of Jersey her response was:
"I know different ethnicities but he looks like the last one".
I laughed and said, "Yea different ethnicities, this one isn't Asian But yes, I do have a type".
(We'll skip the part when I had issue with her calling the Ex "The Last One")
It got me thinking though....okay and a little worrying. Was I looking for the Ex's doppelgänger* or did I just have such a specific type that Jersey "looks like the last one"?
Do you have a type you're attracted too? How specific is that "type"? Have you ever been known to date a look-a-like?

*Note: For good or bad I do know that the similarities do end her at least. Jersey and the Ex (so far) don't have much in common. At least not in the cookie-cutter way.
