WATCH: What It's Like To Date A Twin Revealed


Published at 11:57am 28th July 2016. (Updated at 12:05pm 28th July 2016)

Ever wondered what it is like to date a twin?

People online have been sharing their experiences, including some uncomfortable moments of mistaken identity.

It is after one Reddit user asked the online world: “Who loves someone who has an identical twin? What is it like? Do you have confusing feelings when you see the twin?”

Nearly two thousand people have eagerly commented with their thoughts.

Check out our top ten answers below.

1. User ‘yankeeairpirate’ said: “I'm married to a twin. It's odd to me when I see other people confusing them for each other because I know my wife so well.

“I've only made the mistake once and that was with their voices over the phone.”

2. But what happens when you were first friends with the other twin?

One user wrote: “Married a twin. I was actually best friends with the other twin until I noticed her sister.

“I was telling everyone how cute the sister was they all gave me funny looks since me and the first twin were strictly platonic and I surprisingly wasn't attracted to her at all.”

3. Another wrote: “My dad is an identical twin and he told me that, back when he lived in the same town as his twin brother, some stranger came up to him when he was with my mum and slapped him.

“She yelled: 'Cheater! I saw you in town yesterday kissing another woman!'

“Turns out that woman was my aunt and it wasn't my dad, it was his twin brother. This made me realize how much I could get away with if I had an identical twin.”

4. User Doherty5073 made a cheeky mistake: “Dated an identical twin for two years. You can tell the difference between the two fairly quickly.

“Only not from behind when they're doing the dishes side by side and you grab the wrong one's arse. They still laugh about it years later.”

5. Fluff3517 explains what it is like years after you break up with a twin: “I used to date an identical twin. Not a problem at the time, could easily tell the difference and they had completely different personalities etc. so not awkward or weird.

“However... roll on a decade or so to the present day. On the rare occasions I run into one of them I genuinely can't tell the difference after all this time.”

6. Sometimes you just have to get straight to the point. A user joined in the conversation with: “My boyfriend of three years is a twin but his brother is a bit of a d*** so that makes things easy.”

7. It appears accidental groping seems very common: “My mum, and my uncle's (dad's brother) wife apparently used to look really similar.

“It still gets laughed about on Christmas for both of them having grabbed the wrong butts.”

8. Some just don’t get along with the other twin at all: “Married to an identical twin. My wife's twin lives several states away and I have only met her one time.

“I found her sister to be profoundly annoying and unattractive.”

9.  Another user said: “My wife's twin sister is a lesbian so it can be weird to see her at major family gatherings with her wife seeing as how they still not only look alike but dress alike and act alike except for their choice of partner.”

10. And finally, there is always one joker: “Not identical, but I did date a triplet years ago. I can report that I was never attracted to either of her brothers.”

Watch what happens when this baby gets confused between her dad - and his identical twin brother...
