Title: I look like my mother?!
Post by: Anastasia on February 13, 2020, 04:59:42 pm
I have been trying to develope my "look" for a while now.  All my life I have been told how I look like my dad, which I do. Today, I was working/playing with my "look" and taking some selfies. When I looked through the pics, there were several that looked like my mom! It wasn't the wig, she has never worn her hair like my wig (that I remember). It wasn't the make up as she doesn't wear much. The colors I was wearing aren't the color she wears. But the pictures were my mom 20 years ago, which would make her about my age now. I wish I could show her the pictures, but she would be horrified to know that I think me in makeup looks like her. (The me in makeup would be a huge problem).

Part of me was "OH damn, I look like my mom" as a remnant of every child's fear of turning into their parents. Part of me was happy. If I were to transition, even this late in the game, looking like my mom wouldn't be a bad thing. And the pictures say that I am not as far from looking like a woman as I have always figured.

Just wanted to share. And ask if anybody who has transitioned,  did you end up looking like your mom/dad? What was that like for everybody?

Offcourse it is depending what style I use but one time with make up , I was suprised that cause I was the copy of my mum . But I want to be myself . That was  complicated minutes for me .

I received a comment once to the same effect - that I looked like her.

To say that caused some brain-break would be accurate! Lol

Im told I look like my sister and she thinks so too - I suppose that’s not so surprising

Same here.  I look more like my mother even when I was a child.

My relationship with my mother was poor. I was crossdessing when I came out to my best friend, I asked her how I looked. She said "That wig makes you look like your mom". I never wore it again. ;)

My teenage daughter hates to hear that she looks like me.

More likeness in some ways to my mum, she thought so as well on occasion (before trans).  Kinda unsettling, it's ok though :)

I was playing with Snapchat a couple months ago, and came up with some combination of hairstyle and filter that looked just like my mom...... I couldn't bring myself to save that snap....

Hugs!

My best friend, who had not seen me for 6 months because of lockdown... when he saw me on skype.. first looked shocked and then uttered 'you look like your mom!'....   It was his first response and seemed very genuinely shocked..

But.. That is a 'pass' in my book... and he told me I would never pass... so... Claiming a win!
