Twins-1It is said that everyone has at least one other people on earth who looks like them. Figures have even stated as high as 7 people at any given time can look like you. That same idea with people who lived decades ago. What makes it even more strange, is that this look-a-like is not related to you.

Has it happened to you? A stranger stops you and says you look just like someone they know. Or you go into a business or restaurant and the waiter comments that it is nice to have you return that day, when really it is the first time you were ever in that business. As it turns out, someone that looks like you was there earlier.

So there is online a new site titled ‘Twin Strangers‘ out of Dublin, Ireland, who will help you match up with anyone else that tries this match up. True, your ‘twin’ may not have even hear of this yet, so no matches.

The service of trying to match you up with your look-a-like runs about $3.95 for a length of 6 months with unlimited access to the site. If you want to continue or discontinue after the 6 months you can.

Twins-2You submit a photo of yourself and list any special physical features. It is good to submit several (about 5) different facial photos from different angles. If a match is located, you would be notified with their photos and given their contact information.

There are approximately half a million who have submitted their photos and more each month.

So if you want to try this unusual service and who else out there has your same features, give it a try by creating an account to login. NOTE: In Jan. 2016, two 26-year old look-a-likes (both with long dark brown straight hair – photo above) took a DNA test to see if they were related as sisters, half sister, or distant cousins. The test revealed that Ms. Niamh Geaney and Ms. Irene Adams’ ancestors were descended from different parts of the world and so they could not possibly be related. Go to the Questions & Answers tab for more details.
