Has anyone else grown up an only child and now wish so badly you had a sibling? I've only had one lonely only friend in my whole life and she was my best friend for ages but she is gone (she moved away 12 years ago, and passed away last year). Oddly enough, most of my friends have twin sisters and I am SO jealous of the relationships they have. How ridiculous is this? A 30 year old woman jealous of people's sibling relationships? (But really, what are the odds that of the 10 people I associate with on a regular basis, 8 are twins?) I just feel so lonely. My husband has tons of sisters, but obviously its not the same. They've known each other for eons and I've only been part of the family for the last 12 years. I just don't feel that "connection" with them. Like I said, all of my friends have sisters, so our friendships never crossed that line, because they don't need to fill that void. Perhaps I'm just being completely over emotional today... but I've felt like this for months. I can't be the only only out there that feels this way. Isn't there support groups or anything for "lonely onlies"?
