Hey Friend!

Sure, twins have the same genetic makeup and look almost completely identical. Even the clothes we wear most of the same are also practically the same. With all of these similarities, does that mean that twins also have the exact same friends?

For Brianna and me, sharing has always been a common occurrence. We shared a room for most of our lives, we share all of our clothes and shoes, and we have always been given gifts to share. With all of this sharing going on, it only makes sense that we would share friends as well, right?
Bri or I will bring a new person out with us to go shopping or just hang out. Even if they only knew one of us at first, eventually they will become friends with both of us. It’s probably because we do pretty much everything together!
We even share the same best friend, Dominique, a girl we’ve known since kindergarten!
I really don’t mind sharing all of these friends though. You would think that it would make our social circle smaller because we have pretty much all of the same friends, but this is not the case at all! It might be because we meet new people all the time and introduce them to each other. Or maybe asking if we’re twins is a nice conversation starter? I really don’t know to be honest, but it’s really nice having a large group of friends to just hang out with. :)
So, to answer the question, I believe that most twins really do have the same friends. I know we do!

  1. You and your sister probably know twice as many people because there's two of you to make friends. Caity and I were kind of like this at High School...well, she became friends with my friends, not the other way around.

  2. I see why you enjoy having the same friends as your sibling, but I don't think I could do that! I need my alone time.

  3. My two good friends are twins and when they were younger, they didn't have the same friends and they said it would get awkward at times. Like if Jaclyn (one of the twins) was hanging out with her "best friend" at the time, then they would end up not being friends anymore and then Carli (the other twin) would befriend that girl and have her over and it would be an awkward triangle of ex friends and new friends. That's nice for you you and your sister never seem to encounter that awkwardness!
