    Not that I'm aware of. Although my mother did say that me and my brother shared a "language" when we were very young-which is called cryptophasia. You should look it up, it's very interesting
    I just googled that, thank you. That is incredible! I think I might just do some reading into that. Do you recall any memory of it? Or were you both too young maybe?

    I asked my mother. She said that it just sounded like gibberish to her but we were talking to each other. We also used to have stories with imaginary animals and characters that we only knew about despite never discussing the physical appearance or characteristics of any of them (which is quite creepy haha). Me and my brother actually remember this and still talk about it.

    That is both super cute and very cool. I used to make up weird languages when I was younger to annoy my mum but nothing like that! It's so strange that you didn't even need to communicate everything and somehow just knew the descriptions. Telepathic abilities huh? No wonder I used to wish I had a twin. Are you both still close?

    Yes, it was cool! We're not as close as we were but I still consider him my best friend. Most of the time it's great to have a twin

    Awww... I'm so not jealous. Actually my brother and I aren't twins but we sure seem like it. He's my best friend too. Still would be way cooler to have a twin...

    As long as you aren't an only child!
    I can't imagine what it would be like.
    Is your brother older or younger then you?, if you don't mind me asking.

    Nope, definitely not an only child. I don't mind you asking. I have one older sister by 2 years, and a younger brother. He's 3 years younger than me but we look the same age. I probably look a fair bit younger actually. I think we just clicked cause we ended up going through particular stages of life at the same time. Uni, etc. And even before that our minds and attitudes etc are just very in sync. We actually used to share out itunes library for several years before going to uni. And that was difficult to be apart. Are you and your brother both at uni? If so, how do you deal with that?

    Aww that's so sweet!
    At the moment, neither of us are at uni although I probably will go sometime in the near future. Don't think my bro would want to go though.

    Thanks! To be honest uni life has really tested our friendship. I stayed in London but moved further South, whereas he moved out of London. It's been difficult to stay in each others' lives. There was a year when he really let me down. But we're practically back to normal now that he's graduated.

    I hope the two of you remain as close as you've always been, and good luck with your future ambitions!
