My younger brother isn’t the fun kind, he’s a neet with a number of mental issues that I couldn’t even begin to diagnose. He’s not very social and as his sister, I even struggle to get any communication out of him. He’s painfully shy and awkward and generally hard to be around. I always wanted to have a close friendship with my siblings so it’s really sad tbh. My sister is a fakeboi so I might as well list her too. Brothers, in my experience are a total let down.

Got two older brothers. My eldest-older brother is an obese alcoholic with a bad personality. Can't stand being around him. Won't write any more about him.

I like my middle-older brother. Despite having the personality of a loner background-character, he somehow was always sort of perfect too; which I used to be jealous of. He did sports, he'd get good grades, was good looking, would never get in trouble with mom and dad (despite partying, etc. he'd just never get caught somehow, unlike his siblings who always got caught).

All of my friends had a crush on him (but they never dated him, we're 5 years apart), and he seemed pretty popular in his own grade as well. For some reason, he never seemed to have a girlfriend, and I kind of thought that he might be gay (he's not though).

My middle-older brother is and was very stoic and quiet. We didn't interact much; he just hung out in his room a lot; we'd never talk, except on family trips, but even then, he would just be playing gameboy color or something (back, in the 90's). Our interactions were pretty shallow.

My earliest memory of a meaningful interaction with my middle-older brother was in junior year of high school. I caught my boyfriend making out with another girl; and dumped him on the spot. The shithead followed me home, crying and apologizing. He wouldn't leave. We were fighting loudly outside the house; for some reason I wanted him to leave before I opened the door, I guess I thought he might follow me inside, and that would be awful, or something like that, I don't really know what my logic was. My middle-older brother came outside, and that was my chance to go inside without the shithead now ex following me.

I thought that my middle-older brother would get aggressive; which made me scared, cause I'd feel really guilty if the shithead hurt him in a fight. Instead, he seemed unusually sweet; and was comforting the shithead, offering him a ride home even. This pissed me off a lot, "you're supposed to be on my side. you don't even know him," I thought. But the shithead left, and then middle-older brother came upstairs and knocked on the door of my room, told me shithead left, told me the doors were locked, and asked if I wanted to talk about what happened. I said I didn't, and he said "ok".

Then he took me out to breakfast, the next day, just the two of us. I don't think that ever happened before. He was unusually open. He told me that he felt guilty about not being a better brother, that he should have been looking out for me more. He said that he should have been friendlier, and talked to me more, or helped me with my homework. I reassured him that he was a good brother. He said that he wasn't a bad brother, not mean or anything, but not a good one either; that he treated me more like a roommate to be ignored, and he apologized for that, and said that he'd try to change. He blamed the fact that he's introverted, likes being alone too much. I said that he shouldn't feel guilty, but I'd be glad to hang out more.

We never did become closer like we planned though. We're still on good terms, but not buddy-buddy. I think he's just way too introverted, and I have my own problems (social anxiety); and the combination of that means that neither of us takes the initiative to force interaction.

it's not great. I have a younger brother.

One time when I was 18 and he was 16 we were sharing a hotel room and I woke up in the middle of the night to find him lying naked on the floor masturbating behind his bed. I went to hide in the bathroom and pretended I hadn't seen him. The next morning I was furious and I didn't really have the language to explain why to our parents. I think I blamed my anger on him not flushing the toilet. I wouldn't speak to him and my parents thought I was being ridiculous. I was so upset.

My dad used to beat the shit out of me until I was in my early 20s I think that lead to my brother also assaulting me a few times as an adult. He thinks he was justified in doing it because I used to pick on him when we were children. He doesn't see the difference between kids fighting and an adult man attacking a woman unprovoked.

The worst part is that I'm a total recluse/shut in with mental problems and he's the closest thing I have to a friend. And I hate him.

I have a younger brother. We were close as kids but now we live in different cities and see each other maybe twice a year and never call or text. It sucks but we don't really have anything in common.

No. 93299

Have a younger brother, as kids we annoyed and beat the shit out of each other, as teenagers we fought tooth and nails and as adults we argue.
But I also threatened his bullies in school like some mobster, drove him to appointments when he couldn't drive and let him live with me when times were dire.
So yeah, we're all just humans I guess.

My brother is five years younger than me. When we were growing up things were going not so great with our parents and I ended up having to take care of him when I was way too young to do it, and I wasn't so good at it.

Our relationship is nonexistent. I moved away from home five years ago and haven't talked to him since. I don't have his phone number and he's not my Facebook friend. Sometimes my parents tell me what he's been up to but that is all.

Jesus, I used to think I wanted more siblings, but after reading the replies thank God I didn't.

I'm sorry for all of the annoying and horrible siblings you guys had. Hopefully they're all far away and not part of your lives now.

It's good.

My younger half brother is only 10 years old, but he's really just like my full brother cos his father is a failure piece of shit who ignores his existence. He asked MY father to go to his fathers day breakfast at his school so that really says it all. He's a pretty happy, chill/friendly kid. He loves hanging out with me, dancing and Michael Jackson and video games. I fear him turning into an incel tier retard cos he doesn't really have friends, never asks to go over anyones house or bring any school mates over plus porn and all that really concerns me, unlike my older brother I really see him living his life online, being brought up In the generation of living on a screen since you were born and I know once he gets older he's going to have a lot of anger and resentment toward his father which could make him bitter. I guess I just don't want him to grow up to be a piece of shit but I don't think he will.

My older brother is 3 years older than me and we get on like a house on fire. He was never the shut in stay on the internet all day type as a teenager (which is where we differ completely lel) he was always outside and in the graffiti/street scene in high school, he had a rats tail, he was a typical dero, always had heaps of friends, loved to throw parties much to my dads annoyance. I love him a lot, we have a lot of mutual interests we like the same music, sports, humour, drugs (kek) and he agrees with me on tranny bullshit negatively affecting women even though he's a lefty. We fight sometimes but thats normal. He's a really kind man, good person and it sucks he has low self esteem regarding relationships and career prospects.

Overall I love having brothers but I know a lot of girls who are abused by them. I guess I'm lucky my siblings and I have never maliciously bullied each other. My dad always said you should feel safe in your home and theres going to be all sorts of people out there in the world who try to bring you down, you shouldn't come home and get it from your siblings of all people, too.

oh and I have another half brother who is also 10 years old but I've never met him. I was only just made aware of his existence this year. I don't know why both my parents decided to procreate with complete dropkick losers after they broke up but in saying that, my younger bro whom I love to bits wouldn't be here so I guess it was just meant to be.

My brother is my best friend and pretty much the only person who treats me well because I have autism.

No. 93319

I have younger twin brothers and I can honestly tell you that if you had one, you wouldn't want one. Growing up they were terribly spoiled by my parents while I was expected to get all A's in school, do housework and all aspects of my life were controlled by my parents ("Where are you going? When will you be back? Who will be there? Is your phone fully charged and taken off silent? You're not going wearing that, go up and change."). None of these rules applied to my brothers. Even my extended family would side with my brothers and call me "hysterical" or a "bitch" when they gaslighted me.

They're fun to hang around with sometimes but it's pretty short-lived because I'm always reminded of the fact that they're typical men pretty quickly. Even today, my brothers will keep me up until 5am shouting with their friends on Fortnite when I have an exam the next day, if they want the TV/computer I'm expected to give it up for them to avoid a tantrum even if I'm working, if the house is unclean I'm blamed and screamed at even though it's always their mess, they get given money and gifts whenever they want while I have to work part time to pay for necessities like transport/food/phone bills and haven't bought clothes for myself in years. If there's an argument, my parents will side with my brothers (to anyone who doesn't have siblings there's always a favorite child and if you're unlucky enough to not be favourited by either parent, your life is basically miserable and being female makes you far, far less likely to be a favourite). I fought for a lot of freedoms for my brothers that I didn't have as a teenager because I thought they'd appreciate it (like getting to stay out late, drinking, going to clubs) but because they were just given to them and they didn't have to fight for them, they didn't notice or care. I'm still expected to help them with their college work also (recently I had to write multiple essays for my brother that he was too fucking lazy to do during the year because my mom said if I didn't, he'd have to repeat the college year and it would cost her a fortune).

Read the man-hate thread because having a brother is just having a lazy, entitled, spoiled man in the house.

I have a brother 2 years older than me and I'm really grateful, our childhood was fucked up because of our dad and I don't know what we would do without each other.

Basically my dad was constantly cheating on my mom until they finally divorced when I was 8. I remember coming home from school and finding our mom crying everyday for a while and it was really hard but having each other helped escape and take our minds off of it for a while. So we didn't bond under great circumstances but I think if I didn't have him the whole situation would have really fucked me up.
We have our arguments and everything and different personalities but in the end he is my best friend and someone I know I can always count on.
But looking at my male cousins they are all such assholes, they were raised by their parent like they were kings just because they were boys, so I think I just got really lucky with my brother.

Also my dad got married again (to girl 2 years older than me lol) and she's pregnant so I'm gonna have a younger brother too…

No. 93331

I think I would be less awkward if I had more male influences growing up. My best friend in the youngest out of 4 brothers and her house is always so comfy. It’s small and always messy but there is always something going on and everyone looks out for each other. All I have to look forward to at my house is a sad lonely existence.

i like having a younger brother, especially now that we're both adults. i have a nurturing streak and like taking care of people but total responsibility for someone else freaks me out, so being an older sister is kind of perfect. i get to give him advice and help him out sometimes but if i can't be bothered it's nbd because i'm not his mom kek.
also our parents are crazy possible narcs so we give each other emotional support with that and compare notes to remind each other that we're not the crazy ones. if either of us were an only child with our parents we'd be so fucked up, probably lifelong NEETs at our mom's house or something.

No. 93337

I have two brothers, one six years older and one four years older. Most of my memories from childhood are of them, it feels like they basically raised me despite the fact my mom wasn't working when I was small and obly warked part time when I was in elementary school. I'd spend a lot of time with my second brother watching him play games or watching naruto together, but he also beat me often (but I don't recall ever getting actually hurt lol, it was mostly bitchslapping) and even though that sounds awful I remember it fondly lol. He never made me cry or anything, I feel like he just treated me like he would a little brother I guess.

We don't really talk to each other often as adults. I've grown closer to my sister (8 years older) and I hate the fact that my brother and I were kinda leagued up against her because she was "crazy" as a teen (as in, had issues that are common for teenage girls but dealing with them with basically no support system because of our emotionnally distant parents). Even now they haven't really changed their opinion of her.

I also tend to feel like I need my oldest brother's approval whenever I see him but he never says anything positive. He always asks what I'm going to do with school and career when we see each other, amd ignores all things I do (painting, baking) that aren't related to academic success. My other brother is really nice though and he doesn't give a shit about these stuff.

In short I think having brothers/siblings is cool but less cool when your parents don't teach you to express love and kindness to people. I've grown to be super cheesy and love showering friends with affection but never in my life have I said to a sibling I loved them. We'll probably grow further apart as time goes and we stop visiting our parents as often and I find it kinda sad.

Older brother, 6 years difference.
He made fun of pretty much everything I ever did. I just stopped talking to him one day and we haven't had a full conversation since I was like 8, despite living in the same house.

He's also incredibly spoiled and a huge manchild so I don't really regret not having a relationship with him.

Terrible. Got beat up a lot as a kid (and there's five years between us so he was always 5 years stronger than me too), couple concussions, and he defended my rapist ex boyfriend when he started stalking me because "He just misses you."

I have an older brother, 6 years older than me. It's always been pretty good honestly. We share interest, mostly because I started copying him from a certain age and then developed a personality of my own. I got to read his comics and play his videogames and we still talk a lot about them.

No. 93437

I have an older brother who I get along fine with now we're both adults, but we're not particularly close. I love and am very protective of my teenaged younger brother as he's on the spectrum ( we're not sure exactly what it is) It's mild enough that he still has friends and a social life but he's very disinterested in typical, hypersexualised and rebellious teenage culture. He's growing up completely differently to how I did and I'm very grateful. I visit home often to see him and my parents.

No. 93444

Me and my older brother have a 5 year age difference. He’s over 2m, used to weigh over 100kg and had a penchant for beating me up or just generally verbally attack me for the most minuscule things. He once put me in a chokehold so bad I couldn’t breathe and told me to kill myself a few times (I was suicidal and my whole family knew this).

He’s not shitty all the time and was pretty great when I was younger but sometimes it’s difficult to remember that when he treats me like shit. I guess it’s a typical sibling dynamic but it still sucks.

No. 93447

I have a younger brother, 7 years younger. I used to resent him when I was younger because he is the golden child while I am the scapegoat(my mom is def cluster b, prob narcissistic). But now I love him and I am happy he didnt have to experience what I have experienced.

We have a bit to big of an age gap to be good friends, but we get along and have a healthy brother-sister relationship.

No. 93585

I have 2 older brothers. One i don't even consider a brother because of how much emotional and physical abuse he put me through. I don't acknowledge he exists because he fucked me up.
The other one is pretty much just… there? On the bad side he would yell at me randomly and one day threw a shoe at my face "just because". I attribute that mostly to a temper everyone in the family has.
Honestly, when we were kids he was fine because I liked watching him play vidya. He also did my tattoos for me and helped me out with a few things. But I always felt that he's not a brother but like a neighbor. That's how distant we are.

I've always admired people who got along with their siblings. Like I wish i had different brothers who I could go out to eat with or play vidya or watch movies with. Or brothers who would care if I was dating someone to protect me or could help me with life in general. Instead I got a sociopath and a stranger

I have a big brother, 9 years older. We've never been super close, but I remember he'd sometimes play with me when I was a little girl. Like we'd have dance parties to silly music together, play tag, he'd give me piggyback rides. I also remember he had some silly nicknames he'd call me, like Sharkie, for one. I also remember, being the baby of the family, (my siblings being 9 and 10 years older) they'd do silly things sometimes like wrap me up in blankets like a burrito and sing "you are my sunshine" to me. Both of my siblings were pretty doting on me when I was little.

As we got older, my brother stopped coming around and we drifted apart. Now he's married and has kids of his own, we still see each other during the holidays and have a fairly neutral relationship. Occasionally making a bit of small talk about this or that. I have a much closer relationship with my big sister.

No. 93779

I don't have a brother, but my best friend has a brother who is older than her by 7 years. From the stories, it sounds like she was the butt of a lot of pranks.

When they were kids, he took her trick or treating. She wasn't old enough to read yet, so under the guise of painting her face her wrote the word 'TWAT' on her forehead and took her trick or treating like that.

Honest to god.

No. 93782

I have two big brothers. We get along well and I like both of them, but for whatever reason we don't have that sort of extremely close relationship where you tell each other everything and call/text everyday. We pretty much only talk when we're face to face. I think they have a closer relationship with each other than with me.

My older big brother is the most well-adjusted, he's just overall a very responsible and nice person. He gets along with everyone and keeps conversations going, and he's very easy to be around.

My younger big brother on the other hand was recently diagnosed with Asperger's, has been chronically depressed pretty much his whole life (doing better nowadays though), dislikes big crowds and parties, is a bit socially awkward and "blunt", etc. I'm not as close with him as with the other brother, because I'm not exactly the most outgoing person either. I still like him, but if we're alone it's a bit awkward, since we're both kinda weirdos but not in the same way, and we don't have much to talk about besides video games.

No. 93787

I have 3 brothers. 2 are much older than me (age gaps of 15 and 14 years), they always spoiled me when I was younger because they already had decent jobs while I was still in primary school. I'm pretty close to them and we've always got on.

My youngest brother is another story though. He's still older than me by two years. We used to fight all the time, and he'd beat me up a lot as a kid since he had really bad anger issues. He eventually started doing drugs, dropped out of school and left home to bum off our grandparents when my mum got sick of putting up with his shit and he started being violent towards her too. We're a little closer now since we don't live together, but he's still an asshole. I hate spending too much time with him even now because it takes very little to aggravate him, and he still scares me sometimes.

No. 93794

I have an older brother, he has always been jealous of me lol.
My childhood was mostly him trying to annoy me (went through a wrestle phase) or ruin my things.

I think he hated me for a long time. I only remember one time where he stood up to a school bully for me (I had many, most of the time he'd tell me to punch them very helpful so I never went to him for advice).

Apart from that he showed me some fun games online as a kid, I think it was also a competitive thing too lol. As adults we don't fight really, he's matured a lot (still has anger issues though) and kind of cares about me in a weird way.

No. 93879

It's complicated.

I have a brother who's 3 years younger than me, and while I love him now and we're the best of friends, when we were kids, I was AWFUL to him. I mean, I was awful to everyone, but he was just a kid. We would fight constantly. I feel like a monster now.

I love him immensely and we're confused for twins all the time, we have the same interests and we laugh at the same jokes. We're so close now, but I can't shake the guilt of how terrible I was, no matter how many times I apologize.

But then again, my family and childhood were severely fucked (not Soren's abuse story fucked but still). My story isn't the typical one.

No. 93906

I was molested by one of my brothers and the other brother always defends him. It's shitty as fuck. My parents also took his side and made sure he was punished by the law as little as possible (I told my parents, they did nothing, a few years later, I told a mandatory reporter). My parents also tried to get me as close to him as possible so our relationship "could mend", but I still see my brother look at me in that weird way I know all too well. He also gets very sensitive when I dress in anything that covers less than a t-shirt. It's so uncomfortable.

yeah, i got exposed to vidya games early, etc. etc., but my family had very much of "be a man, but clean up real nice as a girl" attitude. My brothers were always right over me and my sisters, because they're men, duh.

I am jealous of girls with no brothers. I wish I had a normal older sister that wasn't autistic.

oh yeah, molester brother also physically abused me often. I told my parents but they thought I was lying.

Idk, I think having a brother is okay if the family doesn't see masculinity > femininity. My parents were okay with my brothers teasing and being mean as shit to my older sister and that made me feel insecure about my typical feminine interests which I hid and did not pursue. Of course, you couldn't say anything remotely negative about men…

sorry for the pointless rant

I feel you anon, I am about 3 years older than my (only) brother and was quite the shit to him. It's even recorded on photos/film. I did some horribly shitty things that I think back on and just still want to cry. Like, how could I be such a monster to a cute innocent boy? I hope it didn't mess with his development in any way.

I've brought it up a few times and apologized but honestly I don't think he cares. Maybe at one time he did, but he has a wife & kids now and seems to be doing fine.

We used to be closer but have sort of drifted apart in recent years. I was hospitalized for some mental health issues and I think that pushed him away. I haven't been brave enough to really face that even though it's been years now. We still talk and stuff but I don't feel like it'll ever be the same. I thought time would heal the wounds but in this case.. I'm not sure.
