How well do you get along with your brother and/or sister? Not only now, but growing up? I know that some are best friends and some can't stand each other. Sometimes it depends on the age difference, but not always. Sometimes if they're close in age, it can make them closer, but in others it causes serious rivalry. My brother and sister and I all get along better now than we did growing up. We bickered a lot growing up. My brother and sister are almost 6 years younger than me, and they are twins. They aren't overly close, either, but they don't fight like they used to.

I have two sisters and a brother and I am the eldest in the family. We had our hiccups when we were younger and used to go off and do our own thing with our friends, and if anything went wrong, I always felt I got the blame because I was the eldest and should set an example. lol. Now we're all older, more mature, and wiser, we all get on great. We help each other out in times of need and have family get togethers every so often. So, all said, we have learned along the way, to love each other and help each other out, because family are your closest friends. Brightest Blessings.

Same in our family. When they did something wrong it was probably because they learned it from me as I was the oldest. lol I always hated that! :)

Let's put it this way, I moved thousands of miles to get away from them but they still insist on coming for visits. I can take them in small doses but when they come for a two week visits, my patience starts to wear thin. I love them ... but when they are thousands of miles away, I love them even more.

Yes..you're right. I'm really close with my sister who is tweo years older than me and I'm not so close with my brother who is way 7 years ahead of me in terms of age.

I usually feel closest to my sister with the biggest age difference. How well any of us get along though varies from time to time. I have been very close, and very distant to most of them at one time or another.

there is a lot of age difference between me and my sister. although we are the best of friends, but we keep on fighting all day. we are just like Tom n Jerry.Lol!! as far as friends are concerned, i never had a perfect best friend, and i was never even able to have ample amount of friends till date. maybe its cause of my non-adjusting nature. actually i find it hard to make any sort of commitment, as in, i would have to answer their calls even when i am busy and things like that.
