I wouldn't say that all guys do this. I think just as many women do this as men. I think everyone does this and it's for similar reasons as people below. I wouldn't get caught up on this if I were you.

Don't let this prevent you from going after a guy because you don't look like his ex. I've dated many different types of women before I met my wife.

I remember that back in college I broke up with up a girlfriend and the last thing I wanted to do was see or date ANYONE that reminded me of her. If I saw a girl who reminded me of her, I didn't even want to meet her.

So I don't think this is always the case.

I knew a girl that dated guys that all looked the same. Turns out, it wasn't because she wasn't over her first boyfriend, it was because she wanted them to look like an anime character that she was obsessed with. I've heard of similar things happening with people who are obsessed with celebrities.

In my case, each of the women I've dated for any length of time have been *significantly* different.

I've met people who do the same thing. Sometimes people are attracting to the same characteristics and so it just happens that way.

The other option is that someone is not fully over their past relationship so they find someone who resembles their past boyfriend/girlfriend to fill the void.

Lastly, it could just be a coincidence.

Most importantly, if you don't look anything like a guy's past relationships, don't let it stop you from perusing him. Especially for the 2nd and 3rd possibilities above.
