Something that bothers me

xOW looks completely different than me. Where I am blond, blue eyes, and light skinned (your run of the mill Arian) she is brown, brown hair, brown eyes, and darker skin. She is as much American Indian as I am, but she looks like it where I look more like my German and British ancestors. Really, at first glance she could be one of several ethnicities. She is taller than me and younger than me by about 15 years.
Now, when I see a woman who looks like her, I immediately don't like that woman and I have to look twice to make sure it isn't her. It doesn't help that her hair style is common, so many women look like her at first glance. It is totally unfair of me and I don't know how to stop it. I think it will go away as after DH divorced his Asian xW, he had an immediate dislike for all things Asian and a distrust of all Asian woman that faded over time.
I think this has been exacerbated because I have to see xOW on a regular basis because of our jobs, she has been in my space on personal business quite a bit lately and this will last through the semester. So, I don't know when or if I will see her. She hasn't caused any problems, has totally respected my space, and has not tried to contact DH, so this is totally in my head.
Has anyone else dealt with this?
