Are you close with your brothers?

I have two brothers, we have 7 and 8 years between us. I used to be really close with my older brother who is now 32, but I am more close to my 17 year old brother. I love having brothers and had always wished for a sister but I am glad I didn't have one. I have a really close friend who I consider to be my sister. But I think that if I had a sister we wouldn't have gotten along. Who knows? What are your relationships like with your brothers or sisters?

I have one brother and one sister. My brother is younger by 5 yrs. We really didnt get along as kids. He would always get in my bussiness and tell about everything I did when he was around. Now that were older I think we have a much closer relationship. My sister and I were really close as kids. Did alot together and shes's 2yrs older than me. Now that we are older I don't think we are as close. I don't agree with alot of stuff she does. So I feel like my family is like roseanne messed up.

I myself is a brother si I am answering this from 2 angles. One i am very close to my one and only brother who is elder to me by just one and a half years but treat me quite often like a kid. not in the bad sense. he enquires my welfare and takes care of my requests for any help that i require. I reciprocate the same and still he consider me as the old school kid who used to be escorted by him. well as far as my sisters are concerned i always make it a point to visit them at least once a year and share some good moments. Though we have different interests and tastes we still cherish our good old days that can never be forgotten. I am highly nostalgic by your post. I love all of them a lot.

yes, i am close with my 2 younger brothers. although, i was not before. you see, i was the eldest in a brood of 3 and like you, i was an only girl. my brothers and i used to always get into arguments/fights when we were still kids. but now that we are all adults, we got closer. i even tend to ask my brothers for advice when i have problems.

When we were little I was close to my brother he's the one who always holds my hand when the whole family goes out. Eventually my respect for him faded when he pressured me to watch an adult film with him and suggested for us to stroke ourselves after the film. I'm not sure what happened to him but I don't care anymore. My parents don't like me either because I tend to get things my way if I can even if it means not following what they want for me. Obviously my brothers and sisters swallow everything my parents (especially my mom) orders but I'm not like them so we drifted away eversince.

i have 2 brother, difference in my age is of 2 years from elder as well as younger brothers, and 1 elder sister (5 yr older than me, now married). I share a very close- friend like relationship with my both brothers & sis, but only thing is that , i could not cross the line when it comes to my elders. we enjoy every moment of our relationship.

I have two older brothers with 6 and 4 years between us. I was always really close with my oldest brother, but my other brother aggrivated the crap out of me all the time. Now that we are grown I have the best relationship with them. We are so close and I love it. I always wanted a sister too, but now I am glad I didn't. I have a sister in law that might as well be my sister, so everything worked out.
