As I was leaving a comment on Mander’s MySpace profile, I was reminded of the bond I share with her.

A twin’s bond is one of the strongest in the world, if not THE strongest bond. While there are twins that don’t get along, hardly talk, or even hate each other, 95% of the time, they love each other to death. Not only are you born with an instant sibling, you are born with an instant best friend.

While me and Twin might have our arguments, we are never mad at each other for more than from a couple of minutes to a couple of hours. Then as the last second passes, we instantly apologize to each other. We never go to bed angry at each other, though if we ever do, we usually forget it that morning. We even have “play fights” where we exclaim profanities to each other or act like we’re mad just because we’re in a goofy mood. Usually Mom will get into the middle of it and say “Stop fighting!” and we remind her that we are just messing around with each other. We will argue over what CD to listen to in the car or what to watch on TV, but we compromise because we know we will eventually get our turn. Most of the time, we settle for something we both can enjoy.

We can lay a leg or arm over each other while laying down without feeling “too close to personal space” because when you have a twin, you have no personal space. You share the same DNA so why not share personal spaces? You share clothes, food, drinks, and even the bathroom when you’re helping you sister dye her hair purple. We are constantly talking, even if we’re not saying anything aloud. We know each other’s weaknesses as well as strengths. We know that one would prefer Kahn from Kamelot over Jagged Edge. We know when one of us isn’t feeling well, even if we don’t have to say it. We know what each other is thinking (scary thought!) and we still say the same thing at the same time together.

We don’t mind making a fool of ourselves from time to time because we’re twins. We don’t have to have an excuse to say why we are singing “Mr. Roboto” in a restaurant when we’re in a good mood. It may seem immature, but we’re not your average set of twins. We still feel like a kid sometimes and we embrace it- together.

We’re different, don’t get me wrong. But forever will we remain the same as long as our bond remains.

I am a twin too. My brother and I have been friends all our lives. Though we may not always choose the same direction or friends, we have really never argued once. Many times when we are apart we have found we are either both writing, working out, or doing something similar though in different places. Though not identical, we have had instances where we have known the other was hurt in some way. Love being a twin. As you say, it’s one of the strongest bonds ever. My bro used to say (he is a comedian) – “My sister and I were “womb mates” and then “bosom buddies”….how true. Enjoyed your post!

It is one of the best bonds that a person can ask for.
