Have You Ever Dated a Twin?
Being an identical twin is simply a wonderful thing. From the moment we were born, we basically had a best friend, a favorite sister, a partner in crime: someone who goes through all the same stages in life at the same time.
According to everyone, that "someone" looks very much like me if not " identical" to me. Being a twin, I can tell you that we have huge differences and I am always still shocked to see that many people do not see those differences between us. It may sound weird but yes I think we look very different. Do you have a brother or a sister that everyone thinks looks very much like you, but you don't think so? That is a feeling I often experience. Truth is, not only are we very different physically but more importantly our personalities are as well. People just have to get passed the similarities and look for what makes us unique. After all, don't we all want to be unique?...
Well as a twin, I feel like I've often had the desire to really distinguish myself as an individual and not the pair. I always seek to feel special and unique and long to be appreciated for who I am ( yes ME, not my sister) as opposed to always be referred to " The Twins". Dating can be very complicated and awkward for twins (well for us it is!). Most of the times, I happened to be in a serious relationship whereas my twin sister, to be the single one. Fairly simple for all the guys who wanted to a date "us", they would automatically asked my sister out :P
"Now that we are both single, I wonder...how do men choose? "
Do they choose or do they get chosen? What goes through their mind? After all, they ultimately need to make a choice!!! Yup, the fact that we are twins does not mean that we come together as a package...oh no...!!! (BIG NO)
We want you to share your experience with us. Have you ever dated a twin? How did the selection happen? How was the relationship? Any confusion?
