For people who have brothers or sisters, do you have close relationship? How often do you communicate and do you say you love each other often?

Hello elvieb02, I have 2 younger sisters and our youngest, a brother. We sisters are all close to each and we love each other dearly. We also love our brother but there is quite a difference when you deal with men. I'm sure he loves us too but he is not quite open about it. We do tell each other "i love you's" in every opportunity we get. That's as often as maybe once a week or once in every two weeks because we all live apart now that 2 of us are married. I live a bit far from my two youngest brother and sister and my other married sister is miles away from us. We get to talk over the phone or chat over the internet frequently and that's how frequently we utter our endearing words to one another. Our siblings are our best treasures because if anything happens, they are the ones who will remain by your side to cheer you up and keep you company.

i think telling them that you love them may sound corny but it's nice to let them know, right?

I have three sisters and no brother. It makes me feel nice about having to share your clothes and things to them. Sometimes, we yearn for an older brother. But still, we can easily get through the day because we all have the same interests. And when we quarrel, it will just subside easily. I don't know, we don't usually say sorry to each other.

No. We are not the kind of siblings where we say those things to each other. But I knew we love each other. We are just not that open to each other. The only one I communicate often is my sister since she's close to me. My two brothers I rarely get in touch with them.

didn't you ever think that even for once you let your siblings know vocally that you love them?

I have 2 brothers and 2 sisters. All are very nice with each other. My yonger sister is the closest one with me. All 5 are staying different locations and different states, we used to communicate every day and if not possible, 3-4 days in a week. Our parants bought up in such a way that we love each other very much. It is a good subject you raised and I thank you for your thought in this subject. Regards, Thank-s

I do not have a close relationship with my half sisters. They have disliked me since I was born literally as they were old enough to be my mother when I was born. Those 2 are close but they want little to do with me.

I have one sister and three brothers.I am very close to my sister and i love her very much and i share every thing to her as being a sister and i treat her as mother i never keep my secret.For my brother it is very difficult to share about love because they are male it is difficult to deal with them.I never used to talk that much to my brother because i feel uncomfortable with them.

Hi i have four sister and one brother. our siblings are our best treasures because if anythings happens, they are the one who will remain by our side to cheer us up and keep our company. We used to communicate everyday and if not possible 2-4 days in a week. When we quarrel , it will just subside easily, i don't usually say sorry to each other. Our parents bought up in such a way that we love each other very much.

We are not used to being expressive in the family. I am not that close to my brother, but I am close to my "special" sister. At any rate, we know that we love one another though we're not vocal.

I have a brother and we are very close. We talk about everything. I remember when I was in college, I was allowed to go home often. Every time I went home, he talked with me for the whole night about what he saw, what he heard and what he did. But I also remember that we quarrelled and fought with each other when we were both little. I believe that most sister and brother live like that.

When i was a child ,I always play games with my brothers or sisters. Sometimes we argue and fight each other just for a little things. But later, we still have smiles on our faces. We renewed our old friendship. However we seldom meet now ,because we have to work every day. We have little time to talk each other. Just greeting each other by telephone now.

I think I haven't said "I love you" to any of my siblings, but we know that we do love each other. We're not that close. We do talk about our daily lives, things that make us happy or annoy us, but rarely do we have deep conversations. We also don't mind getting seen together. We also don't annoy the crap out of each other. We play, talk and bond regularly. We also love doing stuff together :)

not much, for i grew up away from them so no closeness was developed on our growing up days but i guess we love one another.

When I was younger and lived with my parents and my brother, we never used to get on, we always used to fight and argue as brother and sister. But since I have moved into a place of my own, we get on so much better, we don't argue, we talk a lot more and just generally get on better. We never say I love you, to each other, but I think that it is a love that is always there anyway, and we both know it, you know like an unconditional love. Of course I love my brother, it goes without saying, but I do not tell him. I am just pleased that we are now grown up and getting along like family should, for me that is the main thing.
