Study Shows That Women Morph Into Their Mothers As They Become 33

Once you hit your thirties, chances are you will slowly become more like your mother if you are a woman, and your father if you are a man.
Research suggests that by the time your thirties come calling, you're well on your way to becoming like your parents reports the Daily Mail. Women were found to turn into their mothers at 33, while men were found to be like their fathers at 34. Women just can't seem to catch a break anywhere. You may have the best mother in the world, but if you're really honest that does not mean you want to be just like her. As much as the Gilmore Girls have romanticized the mother-daughter relationship as one of intimate friendship, combine gluttony and a shared love for coffee and conversations, Rory would undoubtedly have a nervous breakdown if you told her she would one day morph into Lorelai. As for those who have less than ideal relationships with the women who raised them, well, consider yourself forewarned.

A Harley Street plastic surgeon named Dr. Julian De Silva is the person who commissioned the revelatory poll. Apparently, the trigger for turning into your parents is becoming a parent yourself. Perhaps if it isn't too late already, you can maybe get a pet instead? Jokes aside, it is perhaps the insight one gains when tasked with a job as infuriating as it is rewarding, like parenthood, that one begins to appreciate one's own parents. It does not have to be all bad. While the changes are notable, they doesn't mean that a woman will turn into an exact replica of her mother, or a man his father as soon as they cross the threshold into their thirties.

According to the women participants of the study, they had slowly begun to take interest in the same TV shows as their mothers, in addition to finding themselves using the same expressions as them and even developing a liking for and pursuing the same hobbies. Meanwhile, the men noted that they found themselves doing little things like turning lights off in empty rooms and even switching from Radio 1 to Radio 2, which made them feel like they were turning into their fathers. That sounds harmless as far as turning into your parents goes.

The study also revealed that changes in physical appearances that is a common side effect of growing older also contributed to individuals feeling more like their parents. For example, men pointed out that balding, weight gain and other consequences of middle age were indicative of them turning into their fathers. Some even admitted to possessing similar political ideologies as their fathers. It is remarkable how much one continues to change through life. Since there's no escaping it, one might as well embrace it and find a way to celebrate every transformation, even the ones that make your parents more relatable.

Data for the poll was compiled from the research's 2,000 participants. Dr. Silva summarized, "Becoming parents is the main trigger and lifestyle factors are also important." Adding that, "Both sexes said the physical signs of middle age were also a key factor." It makes sense when you stop and think about it. When you walk the same walk as your parents did before you, and begin to resemble them physically as well, you're bound to feel like you're in some irreversible Freaky Friday type situation. With a healthy dose of optimism and renewed perspective, it does not necessarily have to turn out to be the stuff of nightmares.

As Dr. Silva states, "We all turn into our parents at some point in our lives - and that is something to be celebrated. They are the most wonderful people in the world." He also revealed that beginning to look more like our parents and as a result feel more like them too is unavoidable, and comes hand in hand with growing older and wiser. He notes that there is an increasing trend of people seeking out cosmetic procedures to delay the inevitable though. Youthfulness has always been a prized commodity, one that some are willing to pay big money for. "It is one of the reasons why the average age of first-time cosmetic surgery is coming down for both sexes," Silva explains. "For women, it is now 37 and for men, it is 43. More people are trying to delay this onset of middle age to improve their appearance and levels of self-confidence." In the bargain, perhaps buying them some time before they morph into their parents?
