    I have an identical twin, and we've lived an interesting life together
    Do you have a twin?

      I am not a twin, but I am curious about twin relationships.

      Are you two very close?
      Do you have similar interests, or not?
      I imagine it is a true joy...most of the time, or not?

        I was hoping you were also a twin when I saw your reply
        Yes, and we consider ourselves best friends, not just sisters
        Our interests are very similar, and we both are working toward the same type of career, just different branches of it (I guess branches is the word I am looking for)

        Got more questions just ask smile

          Those are the positives… any non-positives or hard-to-handles?

            We fight as much as any two siblings, but that doesn't bother me
            We get stared at when we go anyplace, and we get uncomfortable with that at times
            Remarks made to us etc


            Another positive is that we have double the clothes, hers, and mine smile
            We've even dreamed of similar subjects on the same night more than once.
            We sense when the other is happy, sad, and afraid. Stuff like that

              Did you ever feel like you could not be alone?

                Yes, but as we started to grow up a little, we gave each other time alone.
                It's funny though because being apart wasn't what we wanted long term

                  Yes, but very valuable for both of you to find solitude when it is needed. It is good you learned to recognize your need to interiorize and tune into your own inner life without distraction.
                  This is also valuable for married couples.
                  It is also valuable for young children to have time to themselves. To be left alone to follow their own stimulus.
                  Parents sometimes think kids need constant entertainment or constant company and interaction.
                  They need the opposite.

                    I agree. Tara and I can be together, doing separate things, sometimes what we are doing is just thinking
                    We always shared a bedroom until we turned fourteen, and then we had to have our own. My dad knew the need for solitude so he made sure we never shared a room again.
                    Tara puts lemon juice on her hair and sits in the sun, so our hair isn't the same anymore, mine's dark, her's is medium dark.
                    I straighten my curly hair, and she does too, but only occasionally
                    We both wear it a little past our shoulders
                    Only our faces look exact now
