About

Boyfriend Twins is a single topic blog dedicated to curating photographs of male couples who resemble each other as if they were brothers.

Origin

Boyfriend Twins[1] was launched on April 6th, 2014 by a Tumblr user who wishes to remain anonymous. In an interview with BuzzFeed[2], the creator said he decided to start the blog after discussing the concept with a friend, initially dubbed “doppelbangers,” in order to “start a conversation about narcissism, exhibitionism and sexuality."



Spread

On April 7th, the Tumblr was covered by LOGO network’s blog NewNowNext[5], which collected some of the best examples. The following day Buzzfeed published an interview with the blog’s creator, and Boyfriend Twins was covered by The Huffington Post[3] on April 9th. The next day Salon[4] published a post titled “The “Boyfriend Twin” and Our Tendency to Date People Who Look Like Us” which examined the phenomena of dating someone who looks similar to you, and the possible psychological implications of having a partner with a similar appearance.
