Look, growing up as a twin is hard enough as it is. You’re forever going to be compared or confused with your sibling, linked until eternity with this mostly exact match.

But if you are lucky enough to be the parent of twins, have twins as friends (or even get to date a twin), you may want to  pay attention to these 11 RULES FOR TWINS , written by a twin for her non-twin peeps.

  • Twins don’t alway like to be dressed alike.
  • Don’t use physical differences as ways to tell twins apart – try to differentiate based on personality or hair color.

  • Don’t buy twins matching gifts.  Worse: don’t buy twins a single gift and expect them to share it
