I am a twin and it's always a pleasant surprise to meet other twins.

Twins run in both my mother's family and my father's family, so I'm stopping at my first born. My best girl friend is an identical twin and her sister dated my ex boyfriend...in San Francisco. The world is small.

I used to know a pair of identical twins, but one was much more identical than the other.

In Junior High, I knew of three sets of twins (one identical, two fraternal). In highschool, I knew three sets of identical twins, and four sets of fraternal twins. College, there was a girl in my sorority that had a twin sister.

Know many twins and have twin uncles. When I was a kid, there was a family across the street that had twin girls born on the 4th of July and had an older brother also born on the 4th of July. The LJW did a story on them but it was back some 40+ yrs ago.

I know many sets of twins.One of the grandkid's father is a twin. Can't think of any triplets though one of the daughter's Ob/Gyn doctors has a set of triplets. I wonder if she was involved in that delivery.

I have two good friends who both have an identical twin sister. On my side of the family I have twin cousins and twin nephews. On my husband's side there are twin cousins and we have twin grandbabies. Gotta love twins! :-)

My sisters are dizygotic (fraternal) twins. Don't look a bit alike.

I've known a set of identical twins since elementary school and lived with one them for awhile. I think I'm one of the few people who can easily tell them apart when they're not standing next to each other.

I have stepsisters who are twins, nieces who are twins, and I married a twin..... I'm surrounded!!!

As the parent of twins, I can emphatically state, and I think that any parent of multiples would agree, that people who have their babies one at a time are slackers.

We had neighbors in New Jersey who had a set of triplets. Two of the three were identical twins as well.

Just imagine the possible mathematical permutations.

I knew a gal who dated the Minnesota Twins.

My Dad is a twin and my Grandma (Mom's mother) is a twin. Do you think I'll have twins when I have kids? LOL

There were a pair of identical twins in my high school class for a while, and there were also a pair of fraternal twins (one boy and one girl). One time, the identical twins went to each other's classes and were found out! Boy, did they get in trouble, I was told!

And, there were a pair of identical twins in the high school class behind me.

But, the most interesting was that my aunt had a best friend that had a wonderful husband, and as I understand the situation, she was rather jealous because he was such a fine man. I really don't know how the situation unfolded, but it turned out that he had an identical twin, so she married him!

I wonder if anyone thought of me or my brother when they answered this question. : )

One of the most enjoyable "twin" experiences I've had was speaking to an elderly man on the phone who also had an identical twin. He was very close to his brother and after a long life together he had a lot of interesting perspectives to share on being a twin.

What he impressed upon me the most is to cherish every moment you have together with your identical (or fraternal) sibling.
