    I really can't imagine life without my twin.

    It would just be strange not having her. She really understands me and comforts me. Life is easier when I can just talk to her about the first thing that I think of. Also from where I'm from people talk fast, but we speak insanely fast so when my dad asks what the hell she just...

    An identical twin. I hate being being recognized

    as my twin sister, I hate people not trying to distinguish us, I hate people not considering as an individual. I just hate you

    Best Friends Since The Womb.

    I'm a twin. Or, like I sometimes call myself, a "B.O.M.A" [ born one minute apart ]. My twin and I are fraternal and complete opposites of eachother, but that doesn't stop people from classifying us as one. "The Twins" as people say. "The Twins did this today," my mom would...

    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...

    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

    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...

    He passed away 5 years ago

    and I was there when it happened. He meant the world to me. Is there anybody in your life you don't think you could live without? It's like living without that person. In some ways I don't think I really 'get it.' I'll always be waiting for him to come home. Man, I miss him.
