It’s interesting what a sibling will do to you. When you are a girl and you happen to have a brother, your whole universe is colored by his presence. Older, younger, twin – it doesn’t matter, having a boy related to you makes things different. Sometimes things are better; most of the time they are worse, but life with a brother is rarely boring.
The Pesky Younger Brother
When you were blessed with a baby brother, you might have found him enchanting at first. He was cute, cuddly and loved you unconditionally it seemed, of course those traits are also found in a pet Chihuahua, so it’s no surprise things started to change.

Some girls are lucky enough to have a younger brother they can talk to, hang out with, and even buddy around with at school. Of course, when you have an older brother that changes everything…
The Aloof Older Brother
What do you do when your older brother is much too good to be in your presence? Older brothers are interesting topics for gossip with your friends and so much fun to spy on.

While all this protection is good and rather flattering, it can get a bit old having THREE parents – one of whom is only a year older than you. This attitude, for many older brothers at least, never goes away. Your future husband’s worst enemy or best friend might very well be your older brother. The bonds are that strong – whether you realize it now or not.
