I'm just curious how everyone gets along (if at all) with their siblings.

I have a brother who is 3 years older than me and about to enter sophmore year in college. We get along really well and I was absolutely devastated last summer when we drove out to California to "get rid of him" at Berkeley (where he goes to school). But then I got used to him being gone and took over his room (*snicker*) and we talk tons now either on the phone or IM. Then, later this year, in October probably, I'll be going out to visit him for a few days. It'll rock.

I have one brother, he's a year and a half older than me. We used to fight sooo much when we were younger but we've outgrown that stage. I think it's mostly because now we never have to see each other, he goes to a different school, and he has a computer in his room so he only appears when he's hungry. In the summer he has his job and I'm out of works nicely. So, we never fight, but we're not close. He's a really good kid, no girlfriends, no drugs, no smoking, no alchohol, nothing illigal, nothing bad. And...well, I'm not such a good kid. It wouldn't be so bad but he likes to pretend he's my third parent. Not to mention he gets treated favorably...but that's not his fault.

So I love him, but he's still my brother :/

i have two brothers, one who's 18(2 years older) and one who's 12 (3 years younger). I used to get in a lot more fights with them and think it'd be really kewl to be an only child or have a sister. But now i wouldn't trade 'em for anything in the world.

My older brother isn't around as much anymore because he works has friends, and a girlfriend, and i really love to hold on to the childhood memories i had with him, whether or not he was beating me up, or giving me hugs, hehe.

My younger brother is around all too often, hehe, and he's just entering the puberty/bratty-teen age and is a little too mouthy, but i love him too, and i can't wait to see how he's gonna be when he's 18.

So, yeah, i have a good relationship with my brothers, and i love to be the middle child and the only girl, and i would never give my brothers up for anything!

I have a brother and a step brother. I really dont like either of them and have a horrible relationship with my step brother especially. My real brother is completely different then me and he treats me like crap because of it. Of course I am not too close with anyone in my family. I think i would trade him in for a sister who always got in trouble (so i wouldnt have to be the "bad" kid anymore)

Than my half sister that lives w/ my dad is about 5 years old. Since I never see her that often just every other month moreless ours isn't that great. I mean we're close and I love her but I mean she is totally different from me. I dont know i think she is gonna get made fun of alot when she starts school but anyhow!

I've got one sister, she's 3 years younger than me. We get along really well for the most part. We've just always been very very close.

I have one sister who lives on the other side of the country. Our relationship wasn't all that close really until she left for college. We found out that in general, we get along better if we're in separate states. Not to say that we were fighting all the time growing up because a lot of the time she was like my best friend, but well, absence makes the heart grow fonder. I'm still really not all that close to her, but I can call her up and we can talk for a couple of hours...but there is still a lot about me that I don't care to share with her.

Well im 15, stuck in the middle between a very cool 24 year old sister and an 11 year old sister who im getting along with pretty well now. Ever since I was really little my older sister and I got along so well. We share clothes, go shopping, share stories about guys/sex, play games n act like were best friends. My little sister and I got along until when I was about 11. Then she started gettin on my nerves and I got to that age where I pretty much hated everyone but myself and my friends. I tortured my little sister all the time. But recently shes been growing up and now we hang out and talk and she kinda helps me act like a kid again when Im trying to be more mature than I actually am and the 3 of us have fun together. Its going really well now!

Okay I am 17 and I have 2 older brothers.One is 19 and the other is 23. While they both lived at home all me and the 19 year old did was fight. Fist fight. Now he lives somewhere else and I miss him so much. I won't see him for 2 years. My 23 year old brother is married and expecting and they live about 3 hours away. I see them pretty often considering how far away they are but it sucks. I love them a lot!
