Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
This is a tough question to answer definitively. Many people in psychology do believe that we pick mates who possess traits of our parents. Some, like I do, feel that this is not 100% and that you will naturally try to emulate a functional parent, not a dysfunctional one. So, if you have to go back a generation, or even out of the family to find one to model as an object of desire, you will.
Then again, the purists would say that you answered as they would have expected. The drives to find someone like your father would be unconscious and you would deny it with logic and rational argument. (I think that is a bit over the top, but it is worth mentioning.)
I think you picked a functional replica of a father figure, if we are going to go all out Freudian here. But, I also think that people seek that which completes them. You need some of the traits Rob has and he needs some of yours. You balance each other, and even on-line I can see that that is true. (You have nice waxed eyebrows, he does not..lol) Bu, I think you know what I mean.
I see you are getting younger by the day. Amazing. Steven
