    relate to

    Hi, What does "relate to" in the following Q&A mean?

    Q: You mentioned you were a fan of Sex and the City! Which character do you relate to most?
    A: All but Carrie and Samantha especially.

    I thought "relate to" meant "resemble" or something like that in this kind of questions, but as a person who answered the question was a man, I guess it's a bit strange that a guy says he resembles Carrie and Samantha.
    Can you help me?

    I think it means understand their behaviour and feel close to. Or even have empathy with.
