who do you resemble more, your mom or your dad?

My parents' friends always say that I look like my mom. But I think it's the "height" factor - it's because we're almost as tall as each other. However, when I was in high school, I saw a picture of my dad when he was in high school... OMG the resemblance was so great, I couldn't even deny it myself. - I didn't like being told that I looked like my dad because first he's a guy, and second, I think my mom is the most beautiful person in the world and I'd rather look like her :D But now I'm all for the facts and the truth and have accepted that I look more like my dad - the pictures can't lie.

I look most like my Dad. My Mom is more of the "bombayin" type with big eyes, long lashes, and fair complexion. While my dad is the opposite -- chinky eyed and white complexion. I got most of his features. Especially his eyes because only me got his eyes. All my brothers and sisters have these big round eyes with really long lashes. While I have the chinky eyes and short lashes. When I am with my siblings, most people think that I am not related to them because I really looked different. But once they see my Dad, they know that I am part of the family. :)

When I was born, everyone said that it couldn't be denied that I was my father's child. But as I grew up, less and less people commented on my similarities with my father and more and more people stated how I look like my mom. I don't really think I look like either one of them, but I'm bad at distinguishing features on people, let alone myself, so what would I know? :P

When I was still a baby, most relatives said that my dad is my twin. Whenever my dad hear those comments, he will say no. He will insist that I look like my grandfather. He will then explain that I was named after my grandfather. Before my baptismal, my parents have no worries in finding a name for me. They just add letter e to my grandfather's name to make it sounds like a girl's name and that's it.

I resemble my father's face features. My mother has a different face and others who knows us told me that I really look like my father. Me and my father were even mistaken as brother and sister when we went travelling up north. I can't help but laugh. Some of my friends asked me whom I look like, when I tell that I look like my father, they can't believe me. They would be asking me if my father is gay.

I resemble my dad more. I've been told this many times, and I can understand why. I do see and know that I resemble my dad more. At least, my face does anyway. Personality-wise, and other physical features, i think I look a lot more like my mom. This is my opinion anyway.
