    I am close to my sister who is 13 years younger than me.
    My brothers and I aren't very close but I know they would move heaven and earth if I needed them too.
    I don't think there is anything you can do, it all comes down to personality

    I'm not close with my siblings (I'm 1 of 4). We always had a distant relationship and I feel like the odd one out.

    My parents tried to get us to bond but we just don't mesh. It's almost like they are severely jealous. I'm happy and love life but just don't have time or patience for drama.

    Im not close to my brothers (i have 3). My mum liked to keep us all seperate when we were growing up and even as adults she likes to be the go between. I could try and change it but i think it's what we are all ueed to.

    I'm close to my sister but not my brother despite the fact my sister has lived in a different state almost my whole life. I have tried so many times to build a relationship with my brother, but it's like speaking to a brick wall He just lives in his own little world!

    Default I

    I am with my 31 year old sister (I'm almost 33) but with my 23 and 20 year old sisters not so much. My 23 year old sister lives in Queensland too though.

    I am close with my youngest sister (11 years difference) and we always have been close.

    My other younger sister (8.5 years difference) and I get along OK now as adults but we fought, I would say to the point of hating each other, when we lived in the same house. She had ADHD and demanded a lot of attention, and would do awful things to get that attention, but I also think I resented her quite a bit as I liked being an only child and she took my parents/grandparents focus away from me.

    I get along really well with my siblings. I only have one brother and one sister, both older than me, and we are great friends. my children, are all great friends now they are adults, but the teenage years, OMG, world war three every second day. complete disaster zone once puberty happened, but after that the whole dynamic changed, and now they are all terrific friends. marie.

    All three of us are very close but we are just a close knit type family. My sister is one of my closest friends. I can't think of anything that my parents did to help us all be very close as adults. They've let us sort out our differences when we've had our usual sibling spats and not got involved. Personality would have a lot to do with it. Just because you're related doesn't mean you will get along.
