  • I have 1 younger brother (2.5 years younger) I think we have always gotten along. we have had our arguments when we were little (not yet teenagers). I also have 5 younger sisters. Em and El are both 7 years younger. I have always gotten along with El (she is my Dad and step mom's daughter and I didn't really see her or hang out with her until recently). Em used to get on my last nerve and this lasted until I moved out. Now she is one of my best friends and the only person I know will take care of my kids like I do. She went away to college and we have gotten even closer =). Gr is 10 years younger than me and I love her to pieces and she is my FAVORITE person to hang out with. We have always been close. Br is 16 years younger than me (adopted) and she is like my daughter. we just have a special connection and get each other. De (adopt)is 18 years younger than me and I can't stand to be around her. she is rude and mean and whiny

  • I have one brother who is 19 months older than me. We never got along. He enjoyed hitting and beating on me the entire time I lived with my parents. We can be in the same room today, but I find that I have to bite my tongue more often than not. I'm absolutely nothing like him and we agree on just about nothing. What's really sad is he is so much like the rest of my family, so I guess I'm the black sheep! LOL

  • I have one older brother (by 4 years) and we never talk. I live here, he lives in Azerbaijan, plus our personalities just clash. My dad desperately wants us to get along, or at least be civil, so every now and then I try reaching out, but he's just an ass.

  • I have a brother and sister. I just got off the phone with my sister. We are on other sides of the country but we keep ourselves very close. I talk to my sister about once a day and my brother once a week, I love them more than anything I don't know what i would do without them

  • one sister (5 yrs older) we never got along until a few years ago. Now we talk often and go out together
    2 bros (7yrs older) he always acted like my dad, ugh. now we talk often and visit each other all the time
    (6 yrs younger) ugh, we got along as kids but now, he still acts like one and totally took advantage and my SO and I when he lived with us for a yr. He rarely answers his phone or comes over and he baptized our son, go figure :P

  • I have three brothers. We get along, but we're not close. They didn't grow up with me directly as they were my half-brothers, so we didn't gain a strong bond. I also have three sisters whom I did gro up with. And we're all really close.

  • I have 4 sisters and 2 brothers and I have a great relationship with one sister (who is 3 yrs younger than me and one brother who is 8 yrs younger than me)...the other brother and 2 of the other sisters and I talk a lot via FB because they are out of state and one sister (the baby of the family) has disowned her entire family. She has no contact with anyone except our dad because we refuse to continue to bail her out and give her money when she gets into trouble with her credit cards and loans.
