"M's dad is really tall and he's got big feet too. Size 15's, just like me," said T.
"You know what they say about big feet," I said.
"Yeah, big socks." T grinned.
"Interesting that she choose a big guy like you, when her dad is a big guy too," I said.
"I think a lot of people do that," H said. "My dad is really laid back and easy going. Most of the guys I've dated have a similar personality."
"And M is a lot like my mom," T said. "She's very independent, smart and loyal."
"So, you think a lot of people are attracted to their parents' traits?" I asked.
"Well, they say that women look for their father's qualities and men look for their mother's," H said.
"That certainly explains my ex," I said.
"Completely," H said.
What about you? Have you been attracted to qualities in a spouse that you were already familiar with via a parent?
