Twin Strangers


Have you ever met someone who looks exactly like you? It’s not as uncommon as you might think. Scientists have discovered only a handful of facial features that make us different from one another, so it's possible that someone is alive in the world right now who looks exactly like you.


The only problem is finding them. And that’s where a new website called Twin Strangers comes in.


The site aims to help people find their twin stranger, or doppelganger, and has already helped match hundreds of people across the world to their own twin stranger.

These people are not related at all and from different parts of the world, sometimes on different sides of the planet, but many of them look like they could be identical twins.

How does it work?

When you sign up, you post a picture of yourself and the website then helps you find other people in the world that look like you by comparing your picture to theirs. If it finds a match, it will send you the other person’s picture. However, it will only send you the other person’s contact details if you both agree to accept.

Once you have your doppelganger’s contact details, you can meet up !


That’s precisely what a Swede and an Irish teenager did this past Christmas when they found each other on the site.  


Here’s how their meeting went down:


Best Christmas present ever!
