i have an elder brother, but i dont have a sister. I always wanted a younger sister, as my brother is elder i wanted a younger sister. There is a girl in my neighbourhood who is 7years younger than me. And eventually after meeting her twicw-thrice i have started considering her as my sister. She also doesnt have a elder brother and she also respects me a lot. Sometimes i feel is this true sisterly love? i mean is it possible to feel so much for someone who is not at all related to me as far as blood relationships are concerned.

Surely it's sisterly love.I can know how are you feeling beacuse I've also simillar experience.I'm the elder daughter in our family and I've one sis and one younger bro.There are also my causine bros.But still when I met one of my senior in college my respect for him also increases as elder brother.Till one year I didn't talk with him atall.But oneday I told him him all about it and from that day my feelings are increasing day by day.He has also one bro but no sis.I think there is something strong bond between us without any blood relation.I think it's God's gift. So give your love and care to her at your best.

You know, most of the people I feel that kind of love for aren't related to me by blood. In fact, the people that are related to me by blood are some pretty horrible people, so I've pretty much had to find "family" relationships on my own. I don't think there's anything wrong with having such a relationship with someone you're not related to by blood. If you feel like she's your little sister, and she feels like you're her big brother, then that's how it is, as far as I'm concerned. =)

Thanks lecanis. I really love her like anything. We fight and tease each other as we are real brothers and sisters. Her mother tells me she respects you a lot. I feel very happy to have her. But strange enough to feel so much for a year back was unknown person to me...! isnt it strange... i love my sweet little baby sister!

Hi there Zerzis! I think that that is possible. We have a friend, a neighbor of ours that my mother hired as a part-time store assistant. We grew really close to her, me and my two younger sisters and also our mother. She started sleeping in our house and go with us wherever we go like a true member of the family. Now that we moved here to the province, she was left there, with her family but she comes and visit us every once in a while and she's starting to look for a job here in our area so she can live with us or near us again.
