The 10 Best Things About Having A Brother

If you have a brother, you know they’re the greatest! Whether they’re older or younger, they are always there for you and will look out for you. And you don’t have to share clothes or makeup with them like you would a sister. You just have a built-in best guy friend.

I have an older brother (hey Gordon!), and he’s the absolute best. Seriously, I don’t know what I would do without him in my life. He’s always there for me no matter what. I feel so lucky to have such a great relationship with my bro, even if people sometimes think we’re dating.

    I have an older brother, and it’s almost like hate on the outside, love on the inside. We fight a lot, and we act like we despise each other. Like honestly, there is no limit to how mean we can get with each other. But through all that, he’s always there for me when I need him. He’s the most important person in my life, and we have each others back even though we don’t show it. I hate him so much that I love him, and I have no idea what I would do without him.

    Never exactly had a brother only had sisters

  • Sally

    I’ve three brothers. The one younger than me is okay, but most times so so so annoying and he irritates me the most. The middle one is older than me and he can be okay but so nasty. The eldest. I HATE HIM. Hes horrible to me and always bullying me and I seriously cannot stick it. They never compliment me or even talk to me for goodness sake. As for hugs, are you crazy?! If i touched them they would slap me. So basically, boys and brothers suck. Period.

    WTF?!?!?!?! do i live in some crappy dysfunctional family??? they give good hugs? have always have your back? they can be your therapist? they give you compliments? hell no! it’s more like we never even talk! i have 3 older brothers and no younger siblings. i am the only girl AND the youngest. i have tried to hug my brothers before and they push me away. and i have told them i love them and they just laugh. the only “brotherly” thing they do is share their pizza when they get some! and even then i haft to PAY for EVERY slice! i have shared rooms with these guys, i have cleaned their stuff up for them, i take out the dog when it’s their turn, i even make them sandwiches! i mean when i was younger i would do this stuff and they wouldn’t do anything back except push my buttons and make me scream at them. my oldest brother is 21 then it’s 19 then 17 then there is me at 15. we are all 2 years apart and not once have we had a good brother and sister “relationship”. even when they try to help me with homework it ends up in a fight because they were taught differently and i couldn’t understand it so they give up and call me stupid. and i don’t even talk to the 17 year old one anymore! and we used to share rooms. i would clean his side of the room for him so he wouldn’t get in trouble and he rewards me with yelling at me for touching his stuff. in my house it’s always ether teas, get teased, or ignore each other. and lately we just ignore each other so our mom doesn’t yell at us to stop fighting. i mean honestly where do you guy find brothers that will actually have your back, be nice to you, and actually include you in the “inside jokes”??????? i mean i even rode 4-wheelers with them, went camping, and did “guy stuff” but they never let me in.

      Same here!! :/

    I love my brother to death, even though we fight a lot. I have more family inside jokes than inside jokes with anybody else. No I don’t hug him (like ever) but I do know he’ll be super overprotective whenever I start dating, and I know he loves me, even if he doesn’t show it

    • Val

      True dat. I don’t remember ever being hugged by my brother and we aren’t really that close (we blab about friends occasionally at most and when we fight it’s the full on, wild gestures, curse and rant fight) but when shit goes down we stick together. And I already know he’s protective mostly because he tries his best to keep me away from ‘bad influences’ which doesn’t really work but still sweet.

    Aww… I miss my big bro. He left for the military about a year ago and I miss all the crap we did together even if we didn’t hug all the time and I didn’t tell him all my problems. It’s like a special bond that even if you hate each other and fight all the time, you still love them.

  • Sydney

    My twin brother is great and we hug a lot but because we move a lot and start new at schools I get accused of dating him which makes it hard to get a actual boyfriend. :'(

  • Ashlynn

    I have three older brothers and one is moved out and is married. They are the best things to have even though we fight almost everyday but by the end of the night we love each other and I know that if I ever had a problem they will always be there to fix the problem. Those 10 best things about having a brother is true and that is exactly what they do. I love my brother.

  • Anna

    O my goodness I have an older brother and he is the best! He has ALWAYS got my back.

  • Visitor

    I have a brother. But we definitely don’t hug. We don’t talk. He doesn’t give me compliments. He bugs me – I don’t bug him. And he also just tries to get me in trouble. Soooo yea. Maybe that’s because we’re twins? He’s still pretty cool sometimes though when he helps me with my math homework… and of course I love himmm.

    Brothers are awesome!!!!!
