Have you ever thought about whether or not you would date yourself?

Would you be a good date? A good partner? Are you nice enough to yourself and to other people?

Would you have fun at Coney Island with yourself? These are the important questions.


u/abood1243 asked:

Would you date an opposite sex version of your self? Why and why not?

Here were some of those answers.


Could You Be Partners?

Sure. I get along great with myself.

The major downside would be though, there would be no covering for each others weaknesses and complementing each others strengths.

Knowledge

Yeah she'd probably know all the best taco places.

Doesn't that imply that you already know all the best taco places? That knowledge doesn't stack, you either know them or you don't.

Relation

Two shy people, neither of whom is ready to speak first.. Not likely.

But surely you'll be able to relate and understand each other better, having the same traits. For a shy person, having someone who understands you can really bring the best out of you.

To Protect The World From Devastation

I'm already horrible enough as is, the world isn't ready for trouble, make it double.

Twinning

I actually did, for a while, date a girl that was like my mirror copy. Not physically, but personality, world view, attitude, opinions.

Met at college. Hit it off amazingly, had so much in common, literally completing each others sentences from get go. Living the dream.

But over the years, it ruined our relationship. It was an echo chamber. If there ever was a situation I couldn't handle, she couldn't either, and it would blow up. I couldn't appreciate the good in her, because I was used to it in myself.

Went our separate ways shortly after college. I still remember our time together fondly. But unless you both are the perfect human being, that kind of relationship doesn't work.

Really Analyzing 

Absolutely. Assuming there's any physical attraction we enjoy the same things, have similar standards, care about the same people - it'd be a good match. Are all of my traits awesome for dating? No, but I of all people can understand them and where she'd be coming from, and no one is more used to living with me and the consequences of that than I am...

It's a good deal, I think.

At worst? I (we both) learn a lot about ourselves and we grow as people. I think it'd work out - but if it didn't? Well, it was fun trying.

A Simple Answer

Lol no, I did the girl snapchat filter and I looked exactly like my sister. Plus I'm gay anyways

Silencio

No, I generally rely on other people to keep the conversation going.

With two me's, its gonna be a whole lot of silence.

"Yeah, I like that, too"

"cool"

"cool cool"

"..........."

Time Enough At Last

In terms of personality, we'd do great together. Finally! Someone who understands what I mean when I say "spend time alone, together." Ideally she'd be as into building random stuff as I am. Not to mention doing hallucinogens with myself would be pretty fun.

Now, the problem would be that I'm a pretty shallow person. I'm not bad looking so hopefully she wouldn't be either, but it's possible she may decide that I'm not hot enough. Or maybe she'll look just like me, and even if I'm not a bad looking dude, I'd make an ugly woman.

Spending Habits

I would - I think i'm a fun, well rounded individual, who has my life put together. I'd totally love to hang out with me. Plus, having the same views on money management would be a great bonus!

Raise your hands--who had an emo phase in the 2000s? I know I did, as did a lot of people around me. All of us heard “It's just a phase" from our parents at some point, but when you're a kid, life as we know it seems so permanent.

Believe it or not, Canadians don't live in igloos or freeze to death all year round. If you go to Germany, it's highly unlikely that every German you meet will be cold and uninviting. Hop over to the United Kingdom and you're not going to run into tons of people with terrible teeth and bad hygeine.

These are called stereotypes, my friends, and it's best you leave them at the door. People were more than willing to strike down some stereotypes about the countries they know and love after Redditor HelloThere577 asked the online community,

"What are some false stereotypes about your country?"
