Bought a painting of an 18th century woman at a second hand store in Portland many years ago when I lived there because she resembled me. Never found out who she was and the painting went missing after I moved back to the Eugene/Springfield area.

It's actually not surprising.

It's more of a case of looking silmilar than exact.

After a few centuries, I'd imagine the likelihood would increase.

Most of them have beards. When 40% of your facial features are covered, you tend to look like other people with beards.

It is always unsettling to find out you have a doppelganger. When I was living about an hour north of NYC, I found out that there were at least 6 women that looked almost exactly like me.
First time I was mistaken for Theresa. A woman insisted that I was in her her bowling league. I hadn't bowled for 10 years and never since I had moved there.
Second time I was called Michelle. I had apparently worked with her.
Third one I didn't get the name, but a kid I had worked with for over a year, thought that I was the receptionist at his new job till he talked to her. She didn't sound like me.
Fourth one was a woman that came up to me at a Cracker Barrel. She said that we had just spent the whole weekend with me at a Women's Seminar. I was walking with a cane by then and so was my double. Also wore the same glasses.
Fifth was in Walmart. The jewelry associate asked if I came back to buy the bracelet. I was in a ride on cart and she was too. He was positive that he showed me a bracelet.
Sixth was at a dentists office. The receptionist said I was the picture of her sisters sister in law. She didn't have a photo, but she was shocked at the resemblance.
I forgot one more, at Disney, a man and his son thought I looked exactly like his sister in law. Apparently, there are many of me walking around. It is a bit creepy.

I'm one of those guys that people say I look like some friend of theirs or some relative, but when I ask to see a picture they never seem to have one on hand. So apparently there's an army of Morgenstern clones out there somewhere, and they're immune to photographic technology.

I encountered my doppelganger on a cruise. In the section of the ship where the have all the photos of you when you get to port (posing with the pirate wenches, etc.) I found my photo, and then thought "wait, my shirt is green, why does it look red in this picture? Did they put a filter on?" I looked at it for about five minutes before I realized it wasn't me, just someone who looked virtually identical to me and had the exact same shirt as me, but in red.
 
2017-09-12 04:25:09 PM  
I've had people insist I look like so many different people.  When I was bartending, one group of guys always called me Terry, because they said I looked like Terry Garr.  Another bunch of people said I looked like Jenny Garth and in Vegas one time, I was playing a slot machine when a group of women came up to me asking if I was Lisa Kudrow.  I said, "if I was her, would I be playing 25 cent slots?"  They were unconvinced, muttered something about 'we weren't going to bother you, we just wanted an autograph'.  A few people, my husband included, said I look like Ivanka, which wasn't an insult back in the 90's, but I hate the comparison now.  I don't see a resemblance to any of them.  It's weird how other people see you.
 
2017-09-12 04:25:59 PM  
I have at least two. There's one in my area, because people keep saying hi to me at the Stop & Shop, and one in the Las Vegas area, because I don't work in the Bellagio. That'd be a biatch of a commute.
 
2017-09-12 04:26:51 PM  
One day at work there was some hubub in the lab that apparently my doppelganger was outside. It was kind of awkward, as people wanted me to go outside and say "hi" (apparently someone HAD stopped to say Hi to me, only to awkwardly find out it wasn't me).

Fast forward about a year and I was walking with some friends to lunch, and there was my doppelganger waiting for the bus up ahead. It was really weird - he and I made eye contact with each other, instantly realized we looked alike, and sort of awkwardly half glanced/side-eyed the other as I walked past.

But that wasn't the really awkward part ... this was a pretty crowded bus stop, and like 10 other people at the bus stop were looking back and forth between us, clearly making the connection. They all did a double take, then began wondering if we were brothers, waiting to see if we'd say hi to each other and confirm that suspicion. Eventually it became clear based on our (non)reaction to the other that we didn't know each other/weren't brothers. The looks got more intense and there was a weird feeling in the air among the onlookers. There was just a growing awareness of everyone around that this was weird and he and I were seeing each our own doppelgangers for the first time.

My friends kept it together until we were like half a block away and just lost their shiat.

I don't know if the axiom that everyone has a doppelganger is true for everyone - but I sure do. And running across him was a freaking surreal experience.

Whoa!

In my case, it's the easy smile that makes my face seem familiar. I like to smile. So many people smile back, then I get the "don't I know you from somewhere?"

/is this where I humblebrag about being recognized from twitter more than a few times
//weirdest was one guy three days ago who said "hey, I recognize your voice" from a (very) short segment I do on radio every once in a while

You must be my long-lost twin! I've had people tell me I looked like all these women except Jenny Garth.

And I'm guessing realistically you and I look nothing alike, aside from both being white blonde women?

Really never understood the Terri Garr one, people told me that constantly when I was a kid for reason. I have successfully convinced people I was the little girl in Poltergeist though.

Wow. Stunning.

You may not like to hear it, but can definitely see the Ivanka resemblance most prominently. It's a compliment for sure. Politics aside, let's be honest, Ivanka is smoking hot and always has been. And even if she's had plastic surgery, it's a damn good surgeon. Hell, I've had rhinoplasty, no room to judge.

Maybe not twins, but we could pass for sisters pretty easily!

I have a Shallow Hal thing going on with Ivanka - she's pretty on the outside, but all I see is ugly when I look at her.  No fair not posting one of yours so I can see if you look like Terry, Kudrow or Ivanka, lol.

My son's high school classmates took to calling me Jeff; apparently I bear some resemblance to Jeff Foxworthy. I thought little of it, until Mrs. Poet and I were on a cruise, and a fellow passenger kept looking at me... then proceeded to make the same connection.

Mrs. Poet has been stopped many times (in a couple different states!) and told she's a doppelganger for another woman.

Tell me about it. I have had a beard for over 38 years, when I was younger I was always getting the question  "are you so-and-so's" brother or son. I don't know how many times I was told that I have a twin brother which, oddly enough, usually worked for a phone company. As I got older it was dad or brother. Now it's just "do you ever play Santa?" But, yeah, it has to be the beard.

Google image search is being... less than helpful. I'm getting plenty of pages with it, but they're either in Russian or I think Italian. I tried clicking 'Translate Page' on one of the links, but Webroot threw a fit. Could it maybe be the Creation Museum?
