Someone copies you: are you flattered or annoyed?

Yes, yes, biggest form of flattery and whatnot.

I happen to find it obnoxious when someone copies something that I do or say, but I guess it's personal . . . tolerance?

    Very annoying. There is this one person who is trying to copy me, my hairstyle, hair color my smile. So when people come and say "hey you look like sisters", whenever I can I completely ignore that comment and when possible I get hold of her old picture and say no this is the reality: the "before" and "after" effect. I know that's so immature on my part but I do that because I get very irritated & am least flattered. And at times (very rarely) do I feel sorry for her that she feels the need to imitate me. That is such a shame. A ray of hope: she is not a nice person and she can't have my heart :)

    My "friend" does it to me. It makes me feel like she's really desperate. It's pathetic and drives me crazy. I mean if I suddenly start to like something that she doesn't have a clue about all of a sudden she will be their biggest fan too. It makes me want to move away.....

    i feel you. me and my friends are interested in Kpop (korean boybands/girlbands) and for each group everyone has a favorite member, or bias. One of my friends who also likes kpop, I tell her my bias and a short time later she changes her bias to my bias. at first i thought it was a coincidence, but after a while it was becoming rediculous. other than that, she copied my jokes, how i talked, how i texted, you name it. she even shares my opinions on people i dislike, and im sick of it. problem is, shes friends with my other best friends, weve been friends for 2 years and our families are close /:

    My lil step sis is doing this to me for the second period in my life. It's really bad! She's suddenly taken a huge interest in my taste in music, my political views, she ends sentences like i do, my hair styles, she's stretching her ears cause i had it done 6 years ago, she's getting the tattoo i want, she learnt to play the guitar cause i play guitar and now wants to learn the violin because i do!!!! GAH!!! PLEASE!!! ):

    All of a sudden my closest friend has just started copying everything I do. It's not really big stuff but it's little things that annoy me.
    For example: I say that most of my clothes are bought from a certain shop and then the next day at school I see her on the stores website and is saying that she wants half of the stuff on there. Before I had mentioned it she hadn't even walked through the shops doors. One day my blue pen stopped working at school so I decided to use my black one. I'm now used to using the balck one and then a few days later he workbook is ruled up exactly like mine and she uses black pen now. Another time we had to write essays in English and I was excited because I thought of a really strong point to put in it. She asked why I was so happy so I told her. She saide that she wasn't going to do that because she ah already thought of everthing that was going into it. Then when she was done she asked me to read her essay for any mistakes and right there infront of me was the point that I thought of. I was so pissed off. She listens to the music that I have on my iPod, reads the same magazines, buys the same stationary and all of these little things add up to annoy me so much! I don't know how to tell her to stop.

Sometimes I feel like I can talk better to her twin brother. SOMEBODY HELP ME! I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO!

    I think you should tell her upfront. I have the same problem along your lines, but yours seem to be far more extreme than mine.

    my uniqueness allows more brilliance
    and humor than n e thing but when
    someone copies me i feel that they
    can't make up their own shit to say or
    do, for instance i have an aunt who
    buys everything that i want or would
    remotely like and is starting to say shit
    like me also... it makes me want to
    punch babies, she needs a life and stop
    trying to take mine

    when people copy everything you say,
    it's annoying.

    when people copy... how you act,
    in a non-mocking manner, it's flattering.

    it goes both ways :)

    Well it's kind of flattering, if it's just one little thing they copy.
    But if they copy something big, or something very unique to you, or try and copy your PERSONALITY(that's happened to me), then that's taking it too far and it's really annoying.
    Some people seriously need to get their own image, style and personality, and stop stealing other peoples'. Because also if someone copies you, half the time it ends up looking like YOU'RE copying THEM, which is not good. So not good.
