    He's My Everything

    Our whole lives, he's been the one to know more about me than I really knew. I mean, he told me I was gay, pushed my out of the closet (more like shoved me out and locked the door behind haha), set me up with the girl that gave me my beautiful daughter, etc. He's ALWAYS been...

    and we look and are nothing alike. He's really loud and always in the center of attention while I'm quiet and like to be by myself. He's more about himself while I feel horrible if I kill a bug. But even with are differences he's my best friend and we get along great ( most of...

    My twin is my best friend ,

    we have been through everything together. We use each other as a comfort object. My life would never be the same without her. If I have to share my birthday with anyone I'm glad it's her. She is the one person I can be myself around. I love you sis

    I'm a fraternal twin with a twin brother just a

    hair older than me ;) He's pretty great, and my best friend. Even though we live a couple hours apart now, we've definitely discussed moving to the same area once we're done with school. Of course the little smartypants wants to get his PhD so it might be a while LOL

    My brother and I were born 9 minutes apart.

    So technically I'm the youngest. Now that we're middle aged I like to remind him of this.

    I love my twin more than anyone else in the world. She's my second half and my best friend, which is why it's been such a rough transition for me as she's gone off to school in New York City while I'm stuck up here in Vermont. I still talk to her daily, send her silly Snap Chats...

    but me and my sister are identical twins, not fraternal even if we are boy and girl. here's a link to a video, I set it to a certain time so you will only hear the part of how this is possible, https://youtu.be/DZsZ9vXFx04?t=584

    My twin brother and I are fraternal.

    I know most twins get annoyed by being expected to act and dress the same, but we like it. We look different in a lot of ways, but our personalities are really similar. When we act in the way people expect twins to act it's like we become closer.

    we are looked down on, discriminated, talked about, hated..all of that. For what reason? I don't know. Maybe it's because we're twins and they want that same experience..that's why we find it hard to make friends because people are always giving us that hateful look or show some...

    Mirror Image Identical Twin

    Me and my sister are mirror image identical. I'm left handed, she's right. When we were younger and losing tooth we'd lose the same tooth but on opposite sides. We say the same thing at the same time, and sometimes dress alike but not on purpose. We go down the stairs in the...

    Yup. Fraternal twin. Although we don't look

    that much alike. We have similar facial features and are both tall (I'm 6'0, she's 5'10) and thin but that's it. She has blue eyes and blonde hair and I, obviously, have brown hair and brown eyes. We kind of have different personalities. I'm more laid-back and stress a lot less...
