    Would you date a girl who shared the same name as your sister? Girls. Would you want to date a guy who's sister's name is the same as yours?

    You know when you think you've found the 'one'? Sounds cheesy, but I think this girl is it...but she has the same name as my sister, and it's putting me off fully pursing her. I'm not sure how I feel about that. They share the same nicknames too,

    Thoughts?

    Try not to let it bother you too much if you think she's the one.

    I personally feel odd if a guy has my brother's name and I know my brother would take the mick out of me for it all the time. But if the guy was perfect, then it wouldn't stop me!

    I spoke to a guy who's sister shared my name, so we chose to call me by my middle name which was fun!

    Not siblings but I dated a guy with the same first and middle name as my father (same spellings too!). And for three years dated a guy whose name I shared with his mother. You get used to it even if it's weird in the beginning.

    What are you, 12? It's just a name... I wouldn't care at all.

    That's the thing, she doesn't know that I'm the one yet (😬😬), so I worried she'll be creeped out when she finds out.

    Could try the middle name!...

    Look on the bright side. At least she does not have the same name as your mommy.

    ^I took a girls number once, she had the same name as my mother, she also spelt it the same name as my mother. [and my mother spells it not the way most people spell that name]


    ngl i felt a bit weird, ...but i wouldn't let something as basic as a name be a dealbreaker..........
