I have a lot of people tell me that I look like my mother in the face, but I have (unfortunately) inherited my father's weight/build. Who in your family do you resemble?

I look exactly like my mother, but with my father's nose and height. It's weird to see pictures of her when she was young - it's almost like looking at a picture of myself, if you ignore the nose.

I look way more like my father' side of the family....in particular my grandmother and her sisters. I don't think I resemble my mom at all. She has high cheekbones (I don't). I have deep set eyes and small feature. Her features are larger.

Everyone, from my family to friends and people who just meet us for the first time, tell me that I am just like my mother even though I am male. we both have noses that are very similar and similar eyes. It's funny, cause both my my younger sisters look more like my father than I do, but I am a guy and I look like my mother.

I look take after my dad in hair color, eyes and handwriting. The rest of my siblings take after my mother's side. I went home recently (after 14 years of being away) and met many of my brother's friends and classmates. My brother was being ordained as a priest. While at the dinner, many of his friends and classmates told me they were surprised to find out he had another sister. But when they saw me and my father standing side by side, they knew I belonged to the family.

Most of our relatives say that I am much a look alike to my father and has also same built with him and also looks like my eldest brother. Many memorable things on childhood, that we all treasure all through the years. I also get the emotional attributes that my mom has, kind to everybody and adroable.

I really don't think I look like either of my parents as far as facial features go. But I take after my dad in a lot of ways - dark hair and *slightly* darker skin. Growing up I tanned easy, but now I avoid the sun and I'm still darker than a lot of people (although I'm still pretty dang white :) ) A lot of people say my sis and I look like twins. I honestly don't see it. We have similar hair, but her's is even a lighter shade. We have different facial features too. I guess what I need is someone on the outside to tell me who I look like!

I take after my mother, I even look the most like her to the extent that people who knew my mother when she was younger have met me and thought I was her. I don't mind as in fact my mother was far more beautiful than I have ever been so I love to know I am like her.
