I have a brother who is a couple of years older than me. We used to fight terribly when younger but now we get along really well.
Oh, I also have an ex step-sister and 2 ex step brothers. They live overseas. I am still friends with my ex step-sister and we catch up when I go over there, she's really lovely (and the cousin of my childhood best-friend - small world!). Haven't spoken to the ex step bros in about 15 years though...they're really messed up :/
I'm one of four, two boys and two girls. I am the second eldest and I have an older brother who is 16 months older than me, a sister who is 3 years younger and another brother who is 6 years younger than me. I have adored having siblings and have an enormously loyal and supportive sister which has helped immensely in recent times. I was super close to my eldest brother growing up (16mths between us) we were often mistaken for twins because we hung out with mutual friends, liked the same music etc, etc.
I am youngest of 3. 2 older brothers 30 and 28 (I think lol) we no longer speak. Haven't for years. One is army and the other is a nut case, imo. Last I seen of the oldest brother he threatened to hurt me and I left and never looked back.
Now have 2 step brothers and 2 step sisters. 21, 19, 16, 14. I'm quite close with oldest stepbrother and oldest step sister (21 and 19) the other 2 are just so teenagers it's annoying lol
And my family is so intertwined it's not funny. Haha. Hey @DizzyDaisy lmao

I am the youngest of 4. There is my oldest brother 34, then my other brother is 32 then my sister who is 32, then me at 26.
I have a complicated history with them all. My eldest brother still lives with my grandma and my other brother only just moved out of mums house. Now I am living in my home town again I see them but not regularly and we can't seem to find things to talk about.
I haven't seen or spoken to my sister in about 5 or 6 years. She has a personality disorder and had her first 3 daughters taken off her one after the other. She has another bub now but I just can't forgive what she did to those poor babies.
There was 2 years where everyone including my dad thought he had a baby but it turned out she wasn't his. His wife lied and passed off her lovers baby as my dads!
I'm the fourth of five kids. All the same parents.
My older brother is 8 years older than me, then my two sisters are 7 and 4 years older, then my younger brother is 2 years younger. Since the biggest age gap is between me & my older sister we sort of split into the 3 'big' kids and the 2 'little' kids. And we all referred to each other as such until my siblings had kids of their own, so I was a little kid until I was 18!
We're fairly close. We might decide to go to the beach for a picnic one night, so we'll invite the rest of the family & most come. Also get together for all birthdays etc. We do fight, and navigating all of our different personalities as adults can be challenging. But at the end of the day I know that every one of them would be there if I needed it, and I'd do the same.
I've never really felt lonely, and even when I've felt I was low on friends it didn't bother me. I had built-in friends!
I have an older brother who is just under 1 year older than me - for 2 days a year we are the same age!
We never got along but also never hated each other we just barely talked as teenagers. Now we get along well but don't see each other very often.
He's single and I'd love for him to meet a lovely girl, get married and have babies. He's shy but a great guy. Anyone know anyone single to set him up with? Haha
I'm the oldest. I have one younger brother with an intellectual disability who lives with my parents.
My brother has some pretty major issues at the moment. His memory has deteriorated to the point that he doesn't know what day it is. There's a long wait to get him seen to by a specialist. My mum is having such a hard time with him at the moment because coupled with his difficulties he gives my parents a lot of attitude and doesn't really give a toss about anything. He can be quite sweet though. He works at a supermarket and the elderly customers adore him.
