Interesting similarities

Have you ever been in one of those situations which make you learn something new about yourself. I came from a study session for one of my classes where we were covering materials for the final. As I was outside in the warm sun I saw someone I hadn't seen for sometime coming from the library and I decided to wait for her.
Anyway she caught up and I asked her how things were going ie her weekend, preparations for finals, etc. This is one chic that I like but she is one of those chics whom we used to talk about in uni in Kenya saying, "Huyo dame budget sem mbili ama tatu kabla hujapata vitu!"Seeing as I am on this chastity thing and she is in the 2-3 sem class I havent thrown my hat in the ring.I instead catch up with her and talk once in a while.
Anyhow as we were catching up, I get hugged from behind and it's my other chic pal who works in the building where I had my class.I hadn't seen her in a while and I find out what was happening with her. She is also a good pal of mine but I had never considered stating my case as she had a boyfriend, she also has what I like to call "it"."It" is something about a girl, it could be the way she smells, walks, talks, smiles or all the above that I find incredibly attractive and irresistable (more on that some other time). As I was saying, I tend to be closer to her then the first chic.Anyway she tells me of the usual end of sem stress all undergrads face. I was going to introduce the two chics to each other but that was uneccesary as they knew each other. It was when they were next to each other that I noticed some striking similarities.
1.They both have the same hair color
2.They are both almost the same height around 5'2 - 5'4.
3.They are both languages students. One of them spanish, the other spanish and french.
4.Both of them were dressed almost the same.
5.They have both done some travel outside the states.
6.Their figures are very similar, one tends to have more booty then the other.
7.Both have the same color eyes.
7.They are both quite laid back.
They also do have differences but I am not going to go into that.For me it was suprising as I have always thought of myself as having a large variety when it came to looks that I found attractive in women; only to find myself looking at two chics whom I find attractive and see how alike they are.
Seems there are somethings about ourselves that are more deeply ingrained then previously thought?Anyhow back to the books!
postscript: As Kenyanmusings has been rudely thrown back into the bilas train, Aco is currently like one of those makangas who hang on mats and then achilia to run on the road then get back on the mat before it gathers speed.Let's just say at one point last week I was being dragged by the mat/train.But luckily I managed to get a foot-hold and I am back in my seat in the train!

I feel you on this one Aco...the more variety you think you got on your plate the more the dish seems alike (other than the taste ofcourse!)

I observed that as we go thru life we're drawn some characteristics that are prolly engrained in us from birth (or is it from puberty?) windfall has almost always hooking up with a certain height & 4/5 times the gals wore glasses or contacts, spoke atleast a foreign language or two and have great ambition.

One has more booty? She must have bought something from Bubba Sparxxx...?

Acolyte said...

@ akiey
Yup she musta bought some Ms New Booty or it must be the Saudi blood in her!

AK said...

Every time I buy something I really like, say, a shoe, I reach home and realize that it's quite similar to another pair on the rack that I already own. It happens...

Kenyangal said...

In my case the constant in all the guys I like is their character traits but physically they have been quite diverse.

acolyte said...

@ AK
Thanks for passing by, seems the more we think things have changed; the more they stay the same!

acolyte said...

@ kenyangal
There has been diversity too in the chics that I like but I never thot that when they were similar they would be oh so similar!

I think we're all biased towards certain types, sometimes it's subconscious and we don't realize it. I'm glad there's variety and everyone has their own tastes.

KenyanMusings said...

Mr. Cheating on the bilas train.

I think at some subconscious level, what we look for in a mate remains basically the same although we tend to think else.

I find myself falling for stubborn men even when I am telling myself I shall not....among other things, one which is so weird that it is almost strange.

**I am still pondering how to get my lay back**

Prousette said...

Ati you what ... on the bilas train? Toboa bwana.

You may blame your mental love map you follow when weeding the grain from the chaff but then again people are more similar than they are different.

acolyte said...

@ girl next door
Thanks for that, otherwise none of us would get any action!
@ kenyanmusings
Well someone once said attraction is not a choice, but that is a debate for another day.Si you toboa that other thing for us?
@ prou
I am still debating whether to toboa or not.But yes we are more similar then we care to admit!

mutumia said...

Kenyan Gal (and KM :))wamenena...I see what you mean Aco about similarities--- physically, the men I'm attracted to may differ (well- not that much but some) but it's the same guy all over again....... hmmm.....

acolyte said...

The Devious One said...

vsojdAco, U know Im insulted by U sayin I look like the other mama..sigh..well the silver lining in this scenario is that U like will see

Frugal African - Kenyan said...

Interesting! Some business strategists argue that looking at a firm's past decisions is indicative of future strategy.

So the first girl you fall for usually determines your future attractions!

(LOL I cannot believe I'm saying this!)

Anyway great post - it's my first time to be in your part of the world...

Udi said...
