Have you met anybody having the same birthday as you?

I did and I actually married him! Yes, you are not reading this wrong. My husband has the same birthday as me. Actually he was born a day after but they made a mistake during registration so he ended up with the same date as me. We are continually amazed by how alike as well as how different we are, even though we are of the same star sign. Well, the nicest thing about this is, we will definitely celebrate all our birthdays together and we shop for each other's gifts together (very unromantic I know but practical for us). He gets to celebrate it again the next day, we always laughed about it. So, have you met anybody with your birth date? How do you feel towards that person?

Yes, I do. I have a classmate in university who has the same birthday as me. Both of us knew this by a fortuitous quarrel. My this classmate is a very lovely boy with voice like a child. I confirm he can't be distinguished from junior school students. So I always call him "lovely little boy" as a nickname. He was very annoyed. One day he couldn't bear my appellation and said to me "You are not necessarily older than me! What reason you have to call me 'little boy'?!" I said "OK, Let's compare. Which year were you born?" "1987!" "same!" "month?" "June!" "Date?" "28" "time?!!" ... Finally I won! I kept the right to call him "lovely little boy" and know there is a classmate who has the same birthday as me.

This is so cute. It felt pretty cool to "beat" him huh? I bet he's annoyed, being behind by a few hours. But even if he's older, he will still look younger right?

btw, I'm born in June too, so we have the same star sign.

yes i met one of the person having the birthday on same date as on me. this is just a coincidence. one can think that on a particular date many childrens are born. But it;s a matter of great excitement when you determine that someone is there having the birthday on same date as on you.

It's great to hear that you have the same birthdays, what a coincidence. I think that was a very rare phenomenon and you should be thankful of it. Why? because having the same birthdays is a big savings in your pocket, you can just have a double celebration if you wish to. lol..!

Good point! That's why we only have one cake lol. I hope my husband doesn't think we should buy only one gift too!

Well I always want to , but never found any one in reality. My birthday comes on 21st day of April and I have never came across any individual with same date of birth. Although there are different communities on social networking sites like orkut or facebook which are for a particular date of birth people. So only there I found people matching my date of birth, but thats kinda part of my virtual life. But in real life, I have never met anyone like that. Well its really amazing to know about you, but still its just the outcome of a mistake and it is not actually the same date in reality. But still you can enjoy the benefit of a mistake..!! take care :)

Yupz, sometimes mistakes are interesting! I know two friends with the same birthday though they didn't know each other and I keep comparing them to see whether they have the same character or habits or something, but so far I have not come to any conclusion :)

Haha this is a very ironic topic as I was just talking to a person with the same birth date as me! Its not as romantic as yours as I only have a friend with the same birthday but its still quite practical. I actually only met this person within about the last year and have only been able to gift them one birthday. Its just amazing how many people there are in the world.

So this is your newly made friend? It will be interesting to see how alike or different the two of you are.

That's real cute you share your birthday with your husband - and quite convenient I might add! I have met one person who has the same exact birthday as me - including the year. And we call each other twins - though we are nothing alike - ha ha. He is actually a big pain, but we get along - and luckily he doesn't live near here anymore otherwise I know he'd want to do a joint birthday celebration (aren't I so mean?). It's weird because I always felt a connection with this guy (not in a love way), but it was too funny when we found out we had the exact same birthdays.

Oh, so this person is a big pain? Did you suspect you are a pain to him too? =) And the connection you felt with him, is it mutual? Do you have the same thinking towards things? Do you behave differently?
1 Jul 10
Yes, I was born on the 23rd of April the same day as one of my uncles, one of my old neighbours and the same day as my grandma. The 23rd of April is also st Georges day and the birthday of William Shakespeare.
• Singapore

How honoured to share that day with Shakespeare! This date seems to cluster around your family and neighbourhood.

That is cute you and hubby having the same birthday:) I have not personally met anyone with my birthday yet, but of course there are plenty of people with the same one out there LOL I was also born on a date that now has a negative connotation. I was born on september 11. I think if I met someone with the same birthday as me, I would be curious to see if we were alike, had same interests etc.
• Singapore

I have always been curious about people having the same bday as me and I did a search on wikipedia on that, I'm a bit disappointed that I didn't really know those people listed there but of course some of them have great accomplishment. Why don't you do a search too, and you may find that, despite the "negative connotation", many great people were born on that day and there are more to come.

it's nice to hear that. but in the true meaning of it, you really not born on the same day, there was just a mistake on the papers, right? what about the year gap between the two of you? now here is my story. i found one actually working in the same office where i am working. i actually worked ahead of her in the office, or i came ahead of her to work in this office by i guess, 4 years. i was also born ahead of her by 11 years. here's my post about this: http://www.mylot.com/w/discussions/1630529.aspx later on, about two years ago, i also found another one on facebook with the same birthday. she is also working with the same office, only that her office is located somewhere in the north. but the three of us never met together.

Hi neildc, We are 3 years apart and yes, there's a mistake, which was quite sweet actually ;p His official documents showed the "wrong" date and he has that since young, so he really enjoys 2 days of bithday every year. I read your post, wow, it's 2 years back, you are my senior here. :) So, is your kambal still working with you?

yes bluemoon, she is still here with the same office as i am working for 7 years now. i maybe older in age and ahead in this office, but she holds a higher position. she's a lawyer. the other one whom i only met on facebook, i have not talked with her lately. but i think she still works there.
• Singapore

well, the position she holds doesn't matter, it's good to have a good relationship with a colleague, whether on a work level or personal level.

this is strange and quite interesting in a way.i haven't met someone with my same birthday.oh,wait i remember yeah i have met someone she's my twin sister,hehe well,you are lucky to have someone to be with the rest of your life with the same birthday.i haven't met someone of my same. is it really possible to fall in love with the same birthday or zodiac? you know i have had a boyfriend who falls at the same zodiac sign,at first we are good but turns out there were also things we don't understand about each other.i guess it's not about zodiac as well.i have known some people who had the next day after my birthday.i even liked him as well but he's too quiet that's why we didn't last long.
• Singapore
1 Jul 10
Pulling my leg, huh? Yes, probably it's not about the zodiac, it's more about our character and basic values.
@annavi23 (6306)
• Philippines

yes,it's more about the character not about more of zodiac signs.it's the more how you know and handle the attitudes of the person whom you are willing to spend the rest of your life with.rock on!

In my first job many moons ago there was a time when 3 of us (all females) had the same birthday, which is unique in my experience. We weren't all the same age, in fact I think I was probably the oldest out of the 3 of us but what are the odds of that happening in the workplace? Fairly remote I would think. As far as I know Madonna has the same birthday as Sean Penn, who of course, was her partner years ago. I am glad you and your hubby get along because those too didn't! Birthdays then were so much fun, as you can imagine.

That is really rare. Do you all feel an affinity with each other? Are you good friends at the workplace?

To be honest, it was a very long time ago but I remember it like it was yesterday. Yes, we did all get on thinking about it. We understood each other totally and when it came to our birthdays we all got our presents at work, all at the same time. It was a lovely time. We all went our seperate ways eventually. I do know that one girl was called Shelley but I can't remember the other lady's name.

Yes i met one person so far that has birthday on same date she's just one year younger. I met this girl online on site called tagged and not only that she has birthday on same date as me she also lives in a block near me (say 300m away). I never saw her before and we went on a date. I liked her a lot and i said to myself: "Finally my soulmate that i've been waiting for my whole life!" I was so happy and thought we were meant to be together. But when we were on our first date her ex called her after breaking up a month ago. And she got back with him together. We stayed friends but it isn't the same. Next year i wrote her a short song for her birthday and she was very happy and said she cares for me but she forgot that i had birthday too. When i told her she said she's such a cow and that she's sorry. But that's history now i finally found my soulmate and we've been together for almost 2 years i just had to write this story after reading your discussion. You are rally lucky you know that? What a coincidence to marry someone and celebrate birthdays together. Good luck to you

I'm glad you have found your soulmate. What a pity the lady missed a chance to be with her soulmate (you), but I'm happy for you now. Thanks for sharing your history with me. I had the same soulmate thought myself when I found out. I think that's what accelerated our friendship which eventually developed into love.

I can see how it accelerated your friendship because you can't help but to think it's a sign you should be together. Good to hear your love came with time that way it will probably last forever. Good luck to you both

My birthday is china's National day.And I have met a one who have the same birthday as me in the university.I saw his name on the sign in books in the selected course and his name means"national day",so I asked him whether his birthday is the national day,he said yes,so happy I was that time.But we have lost connection for a long time now:(
• Singapore

Your whole nation celebrates with you! I hope your friends will celebrate with you instead of just concentrating on the country's bday. :) Do you feel some connection with that schoolmate? Maybe you can re-connect with him?

It's a selected course and every student can choose,so we were not in the same major and as the university was too big we just met for some times.It's really a pity we have not left the other's number phones.

Hi Bluemoon, its rare and it is amazing. So since you and your husband have the same birthdate it must be so much fun to celebrate it together. I was wondering whether the Cake you guys buy is one or two different ones? Its interesting and I haven't yet anybody like that who would share my bday!. I guess if somebody does then, probably I won't be that important anymore Cheers, Bodhi
• Singapore
1 Jul 10
Hi Bodhi, We are really pleasantly surprised when we found out. We have just one cake, or sometimes we go to the cake shop and order two separate pieces. The cake is not important but the celebration is. :) If you do find someone with the same bday, you won't be less important. I'm surprised you said that?
• India
1 Jul 10
I din't mean that so seriously, it is just such an amazing idea to be with someone so close and sharing the same Birthday. probably I should have added one more emote to convey that it was all said in good humor. Cheers, Bodhi

Oh really? That was good. So, you just prepare one cake for you both and blow the candles together I have co-worker who has husband with the same birthday with me. Even, we have similarity in physic. He is thin and so am I. When the day come, we both say happy birthday each other using short message service. I think there will be more people have the same birthday with me.
• Singapore
1 Jul 10
My husband and I are both very thin too, we look quite alike in outlook actually. Same birthday as your co-worker's husband, so do you know her better than other co-workers?
@de_toya (2433)

Actually no. I don't want too close to other women since I could fall in love easily . Moreover, she have ever told me that her typical is thin man. I just want to be her friend, not more.

Actually, there was a friend of the family when I was growing up who had a daughter born on the same day, but she was mentally handicapped. I worked with a guy with the same birthday - but a number of years apart. Kind of funny, that... I worked in an office with about 45 people and only he and I shared a birthday, tho there was another gal there briefly who shared with another lady. Then I got a promotion into another office of about 12 people and there were 3 pairs of shared birthdays so about half the people shared a day with someone else!

That's quite interesting, I like how you put it, so statistical! Such coincidences do happen around us.
