List Rules TWINS ONLY - vote up the weirdest thing you have to deal with as a twin.

There aren’t too many people in the world who are able to claim the status of identical twin. When you’re an identical twin you experience many things that non-identical twins could never even began to contemplate or understand. First and foremost you have a human being that looks exactly like you. Some people search their whole lives to find their doppelganger, but you’ve known who yours was ever since you were born!

You know firsthand how awesome it is to go around through life with someone who shares all of your DNA. Your twin is your best friend, your partner in crime, and your ride-or-die girl or guy. You have someone that you can stick with throughout all of life, and you absolutely love it.

We also know that there are things that we could live without. Remember when someone asked you “Can you and your twin tell each other apart?” Or how about, “So do you guys like have the same birthday?” You’re not alone my fellow identical twins. We’ve all been there,and we can all take solace in the fact that there are other people out there who know exactly what it’s like being an identical twin.

So now I’m putting a call out to all identical twins! Do you agree with the items on this list? Can you think of other things that I’ve left out? Share with us what being an identical twin is like for you. I’m sure you’re not the only identical twin out there who has experienced it!
