I'm the eldest and have had 2 long term relationships (4 yrs and 3 years still going). I'm 21. My younger sister (18) has been in her relationship for 3 years this summer.
My brother is 6, he likes Chloe and Katie B in his class because they play cars with him and he shares his crisps with Anna. Katie S however, likes him because he got her a my little pony for her birthday. These were his own words when i asked him if he had a girlfriend. The kid's a player.

Only child. Every single one of my boyfriends has been an only child or eldest sibling. My most successful (and current) relationship is with an eldest sibling. Funnily enough, an overwhelming majority of my friends are only children or eldest siblings too. I can only think of three close friends across the course of my life (out of maybe 30-ish total close friends) who have older siblings. This isn't intentional and I have no idea what it means or why it happened, but there you go.

Currently: I was first born (female) and as is my fiancé (male).I have a younger sister and he has a younger brother. We have been together for 4 years (and 2 months :P)
6th was 1st born, failed after 3 months, joke of a relationship to be honest, he had a younger sister.
5th relationship he was the 2nd born (youngest), failed after about 5 months, ended bad but we were still friends, he had an older brother.
4th "relationship" he was 2nd born (youngest), nothing serious, failed after about 1-2 months, he had an older sister.
3rd relationship he was first born, failed after 8-10 months (we kinda kept seeing each other on and off after 8 months), ended... crazily... :|, he had a younger brother and a younger sister.
2nd relationship he was 2nd born (youngest), failed after 6 months, he had an older brother.
First "relationship" he was an only child, failed after (he cheated on me) about 4 months or so.
So in terms of my experience what you read is not applicable.

In my case I've been brought up as an only child, and my previous relationships have been... last born, only, '2nd born' (but as if eldest sib), 2nd born and 1st born.
Not much success.

1st: both only children, failed after a few months.
2nd: he was last born, failed after a year and a half.

1st relationship: I was first born and he was an only child; really didn't work - it was awful.
Current: Both first born, going strong after 2 years !

What about other relationships, I'm looking for all that people have had so I can get an idea.
I'm the oldest of two (younger sister):
1) He the youngest (older sister), relationship lasted 3 years. Ended because - grew apart when I went to university. Plus he was a lying toe-rag but for some reason I forgave that for quite a while.
2) He the youngest (two older sisters), relationship lasted 5.5 years. Nice guy. Ended because - we just weren't sufficiently right to justify marriage.
3) He the oldest (one younger brother), relationship lasted 2 years. Nice guy. Ended because - I moved to a different country. Still friends.
4) He the oldest (one younger sister), relationship ongoing (10 years). Nice guy.
See boys, I'm living proof that girls DO like nice guys.

This is so funny! My coworker and I were just talking about this today at work! He said the best pairs are: middle child with middle child, and first born with the youngest born.
First relationship: I'm first born and he's the youngest. Were together for a year and then on and off for a couple of more months after 2 years when we got back together. too immature.
Guy I'm currently talking to is the youngest as well. Going well right now.

That's interesting anyway.
