A stunned photographer told yesterday how he met his exact double on Facebook - and discovered they lived only about 10 miles apart.
Graham Comrie feared someone was impersonating him online when a friend emailed to say a man was pretending to be him on the social networking site.
His "impersonator" was even said to be using his photos.
Graham Comrie and Graham Cormie were amazed when they realised they had double lives.
The more Graham looked into it, the stranger it got - until he realised this person wasn't trying to imitate him but appeared to be his doppelganger.
Amazed by what he saw, he contacted his lookalike, Graham Cormie, and discovered they were leading parallel lives.
The Grahams soon realised they were both professional photographers.
And as the two men chatted online, they found out they both had red-headed wives and were both set to celebrate their silver wedding anniversaries next year.
Other striking similarities included that they both had two daughters and both owned Lhasa Apso dogs.
When they saw each other's pictures, they realised they were the absolute spitting image of each other, too.
The men met face-to-face over a pint for the first time this week.
Graham Comrie, 45, from Aberdeen, said: "A friend got in touch a few months ago to say that I had someone impersonating me on Facebook.
"But when I looked into it, it got even more interesting.
"It was quite amusing at first.
We realised we were virtually the same age, with almost the same name and were both photographers.
"But the freaky part was when we saw each other's profile pictures. I did a double take.
"We've checked and we are definitely not related."
He added: "We keep on getting messages from each other's friends on Facebook so we've had to change our pictures so people don't get us mixed up.
"We've joked that one of us would have to change our name - but neither of us is backing down."
Graham Cormie, 47, of Ellon, Aberdeenshire, said: "It's all very confusing. I too thought someone was impersonating me.
"We were both getting emails from the wrong people.
"I've had people emailing me asking, 'When are you coming in to take my photo?' or 'When are we doing this shoot?', and I'd never heard of them before.
"When I saw Graham's picture, I was completely gobsmacked.
"We could've been separated at birth. I call him my nemesis."
Graham Comrie's wife Heather added: "It's quite spooky. It's just weird. There are too many coincidences."
After realising how much they have in common, the men now hope to become good friends.
