Is a twin brother more fun than having a normal sibling?

    I've always wondered about this. I have 1 brother who is 7 years older than me and 1 sister who is 5 years older. They've always gotten along very well.
    I'm almost the opposite of my older brother, but me and my sister get along quite well.

    You know you hear those stories about twins sometimes that they know of eachother how they feel without talking and other unexplainable stuff. When I was little I always used to ask my mother if I could get another younger brother or sister cause I didnt wanna be the youngest.

    On the other hand you might feel that you are not as unique with a twin brother or something... It has pros and cons I guess.

    Anyone in here with a twin and another sibling who can comment on it?
    What do you like about being a twin, or about not being one.

    My ex was a twin and they were practically the same person a lot of the time. One was a little more logical and the other was a bit more dreamer.


    Either way, they loved it. They're best friends and for good reason.

    I am not sure if this was aimed at identical or same sex twins, but here is my thoughts anyway.

    I have a twin sister (she is two minutes older) and I love it!! I can't even imagine life without her! We started school together so I always had a friend to talk too and sit with at lunch. I also always have someone to celebrate my birthday with. We experienced many milestones and tragedies together. We have a bond that is so amazing. Our birthday just passed on Wed the 12 and we had birthday cookies and watched Modern Family. It was so much fun!

    There is not one thing I would ever dislike about being a twin.

    I have a twin sister, too, and we have a pretty special relationship as well, but the 10,000 miles between us keeps us from making birthday cookies together, unfortunately. Our relationship was rocky in middle school and the beginning of high school but since then we've been very close.

    She's 10 minutes older than I am, though, and she rubs my face in it all the time!

    I'm an only child. I always thought it would be cool to have a brother or sister. I think being a twin would be great. I'd want to be a fraternal twin though instead of identical - so we wouldn't be mistaken for each other! icon_cool.gif

    hello, fellow twins!

    my brother and i are identical twins. it's pretty cool.

    i don't know if i'd consider any of the 'twin things' to be unexplainable. it's just what happens when you grow up with a person - you know them so well that you don't need to speak. the same thing can be found in old married couples.

    being a twin totally screwed over my sense of identity when younger, though. i always, always had to be the exact opposite of him. if he wore red, i had to wear blue, if he liked apples, i had to hate them. whoops.

    being a twin is pretty awesome now at this age, but growing up and trying to establish a personal identity with another guy who looked just like you was tough.

    I have a twin brother, we're not identical, but most people think we are. We have "twin moments" and stuff like that. Sometimes we finish each others sentences and we can look at each other a certain way and we can tell what we're each thinking. I play sports/workout, he doesn't. It has it's pros and cons though. We're very much the same, but different at the same time. Most people think that if my brother does something, that I do it too. The HARDEST part is that he's out and I'm not....but at the same time, being a twin is all I've ever known, I don't know what it's like not to be one lol.

    I have a Twin Brother and we are like day and night. We are different in almost every way. LOL (He's straight and I'm gay)

    When we were kids, it was common for us to have the similar thoughts at the same time, but that changed as we got older. While It was fun growing up with a twin brother, we mostly spent our time hanging out with our friends instead of each other.(We needed our space lol)

    Me and my brother are already best friends, we're 15 months apart. If we were twins.... I think we'd get into way too much trouble playing tricks and messing with people. We already have twin-like behavior, I'll say something then he'll say "god damnet stay out of my head, I was gonna say that," and vice-versa. Happens on a daily basis, and ALL of our interests are the exact same! ...well except for he likes the V and I don't. God I hate him so much. icon_biggrin.gif

    Blessing and a curse. I have a fraternal twin brother, and we couldn't be more different. He's always been just out there. Mr Life O the Party, while I've always been the studious, cautious one. We shared a room for the first 15 years of our life, and even with our differences were very close. ONce we got our own spaces, were never as close.Went our separate ways after high school , and only recently have become closer. He's also gay, and like me, got married, had kids before coming out. He's been a big help to me, since he had a 10 year head start on the process.

    My boyfriend has a twin sister. They don't get along very well unfortunately. Sometime it just doesn't work out I guess.

    My twin brother and I are Fraternal. We don't even look like bothers. We are the last 2 of 7 children - 7 kids in 9 yrs.

    Growing up, we never go along! Complete opposites. Mom would dress us like identical twins and people wanted to know why, since we did not look like brothers, I am gay and he is straight. Now, I can tell when something is wrong. We are much, much closer even though we live in different States, many miles apart.

    We can now tell each other how much we love and appreciate the other!

    Ha ha. I have a cousin who I consider to be my "twin". He and I are just 3 months apart and we grew up together and he is and always was my best friend. He has only sisters and I have only sisters. He has no other cousins except me and my sisters, I have no other cousins except him and his sisters. We grew up in the same city, went to the same schools and had nearly all the same friends. We share much more than just the same last name, we share a lifetime of memories, and an unbreakable emotional bond.

    I'm a twin.
    Was great to have someone in the same grade in school.
    We didn't have double the friends...cause we both had the same friends.

    Played on the same baseball team....he was the a pitcher and I was a catcher. (No double entendre meant ) ;)

    He was more sports oriented and I was more musical when were where growing up even thought we both played sports till High School.....but I eventually turned more athletic in my late 20's
    I'm the one who eventually started running marathons and blade and gym.

    Not following here. He's a Vikings fan and you're not? or maybe he likes to get valentines and you don't? No, that's not it. You don't like to eat your vegetables and he does. Is that it?


    He likes the Vagina AKA copher, cunt, pussy, twat, cooter, beaver, fish lips, taco, camel toe, muff, snatch, fuck hole, garage, oven, love button, penis glove, cock sock, and DNA dumpster.

    I think we were twins separated at birth. They left you in the corn field, I was boxed and shipped to Europe. Yeah, that's totally how it went.
