Off the top of my head here's some scenarios in which people may be encountering their 'double'. These could be difficult to distinguish between at times but I think these types of encounters and the circumstances surrounding them would tend to have their own set of characteristics when comparisons are made (though of course there'll always be the odd ones out)...
1. beings with the ability to appear as they wish taking someone's form (to whatever end)
2. dimensional weirdness where a version of someone is witnessed (not to be confused with physical time travel)
3. a thought-form in one's likeness
4. replication of one's physical body
5. two people naturally sharing an uncanny resemblance.
Cases where two people just happen to look very similar would most likely not share the odd qualities other scenarios listed here have, and while startling, I think it's a situation that's usually recognized for what it is

Awesome story, and very good list of ideas.
Please keep in mind that when you post on here that we do have a swear filter and we would appreciate it if you refrain from tricking it by typing shortened versions of swear words. I understand you weren't trying to trick it, but please keep that in mind.

I should add that while I couldn't detect any structural differences in the face (which was uncomfortable to experience and kind of repulsive), this 'double' did not have a scar I have from a childhood accident + their hair, while very short, was a tiny bit longer than mine. Also, their clothes did not look like something that fit in my own wardrobe, they had their own style. There seemed to be an acceptance on their part (after the initial surprise) that an interaction may now be unavoidable, along with a resignation to handle it as best they could... like taking responsibility for some carelessness on their part/the situation they'd gotten into.
I was enjoying an introspective and quiet day, a day where I keep to myself and don't look to interact with others, so I did not care to approach this individual or investigate the matter further. It was also difficult standing that close even for that short time (like if we were to make contact there could be catastrophic results or something) and so I continued along and thought 'don't worry man, I don't want anything to do with this either right now'. I was having a lot of strange experiences during that period of my life and so had chosen to be very purposeful about what I focused on/spent my energy on, and at the time I didn't care to give the encounter much thought. I just laughed about it and got on with things.

Look at it this way. If each and every one of us is 1 in a million...and there are ~7 billion people on the earth. Then there should be 7,000 others that look just like us????
That is just my logical side chiming in :-)
Life is short, enjoy it!

My most recent reminder was at the grocery store a couple weeks ago. I was chatting with my "boyfriend" (elderly night manager) and he was like "man, you were in a foul mood the other night, you feeling better?" I told him I hadn't been in in a couple weeks and he insisted I'd been in and rude two nights before. I told him about my twin and he's totally going to mess with her if he sees her again.
