This is the next bit from days of yore. I am still leading to my fresh thoughts on this subject…
My sister also gravitates towards a certain physical type, we noted that although the men we choose are akin to our father, they are also very distinctly different from him. My type is also different from hers and we concluded that while the opposite sex parent may have some play, there is more to the story. She wondered about past lives for example while I just wondered in general.
Might you arrive in this world with the shred of an outline? Are we half-done puzzles looking for the missing pieces of ourselves and some subconscious knowledge of what they may look like? As always, I am an extreme example.
Not only do I go for a certain physical type, roughly 95% of the men I have ever been involved with have been either an artist or an engineer. Many of them are both. They are artists with aptitude for engineering or they are engineers with art as a sideline.
They say you find people who have qualities you have yet to discover in yourself. However I have no engineering ability. As a matter of fact, I am pretty sure I am missing that entire lobe of my brain, so then how is this explained?
And then there is the astrology and it took me years to notice this. I was onto the artist / engineer thing in my 20’s but it was rather recently I realized again, that roughly 95% of men who have been significant in my life have either Moon in Scorpio, or Moon in Aquarius. Since high school, this is. Since I was 13, and I can see why. I am an intense eccentric!
However, this is still a very narrow focus. It’s extremely narrow. It is embarrassingly narrow except for the fact I’m sort of proud to me.
So I have a serious imprint and I am not alone. According to the poll on this blog, 65% of you cop to being in a similar situation. 22% of you also have a strong preference to certain people though it’s basis is something other than the physical. . So where do these imprints come from?
If you have a strong preference for a certain type, do you have any idea where it is rooted? How did it originate?
