Does this happen to any women you know?

They end up with the man who was the type of guy mimicking their father. Only it's that type she wasn't wanting the whole time. She didn't want to but didn't know her dad was the reason she ended up getting a man the same as him, and now she hated her decision, but stayed .

  • A lot of women do this, and stay after realizing their mistake, but I will never understand any woman who stays in an unhappy relationship.

  • I think you grow up knowing how to deal with personality issues that you already had to deal with with your dad. So, if your father is _____ (whatever that may be), that personality trait doesn't significant to you if your mate has that trait too.

  • My DH has some characteristics that my dad had. They both play guitar very well, they're both recluses, they're both good artists, they both have traveled the world a lot, they both have a grumpy side. But, there are lots of things that are totally different about them too.

    I don't think i share many qualities with his mother, i LOVE her to pieces though!

  • My DH is only similar to my dad in that they are both musicians. The resemblance stops there! I think that a lot of women end up marrying men like their fathers, as young girls they (with our moms) were our first real exposure to how a relationship should be.
