Twins are notorious for getting into some weird stuff, like becoming jewelry thieves or pretending to be time travelers. So, dating someone who is a twin has to be weird too, right? Right? Do you get attracted to both of them? What if yours is the evil one? What does which twin you choose say about you? And the biggest question: what if they decide to become magicians?

Not everyone gets a chance to get these answers, because twins are rare, but these nine people who are romantically involved with a twin spilled the beans so you can get a glimpse of what its like to date one part of a matching set without having to type "twins" into a porn search bar.

1. ​chemwhizzz47 says her husband and his twin husband creep her out, but it's worth it to always have a "spare."

So my husband is an identical twin, but I've known him & his brother since I was 8 years old. I haven't legit gotten them confused with each other since about then (20 some odd years ago) but they definitely creep me out sometimes with their "twinstuff". They can wake up in completely different states, meet up later that evening and be wearing the EXACT same outfit. This has happened so many times it's not even a question of coincidence anymore. I'm not talking about they both show up in t-shirt and jeans, either. We went on vacation a couple of years ago and they both came down for breakfast wearing bright orange button-up shirts and blue, white and orange striped swimming trunks. Different brands, bought in different stores, with NO communication with each other. So creepy.

As for the confusing romantic stuff? Yeah, sure. There's been some awkward encounters (mostly because the twin apparently agrees with his brother that I'm pretty hot, especially when drinks are involved). It honestly turns out to be a pretty sweet deal, though. It's like having a spare dude to hang with when my hubby is out of commission.

2. ​the_authority_ishere was somehow best friends with one and attracted to the other.

Married a twin. 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. ​This redditor found a really easy way to tell her husband and his twin apart.

Husband is a twin. I don't find his brother attractive because he's in prison and covered in swastikas

4. howhardcoulditB worked with a guy who either missed out on that coveted twin threesome, or was just working really hard to save his marriage.

Not me, but a guy I worked with married a twin. He said they used to fuck with him when he was drunk. The sister would hit on him and try to get him to get physical with her. His wife would encourage her, too. He would get pissed when he found out. I told him it seemed really rapey to me.

This fantasy isn't for everyone.

5. ​orilly realized the only thing that gave her the power to tell twins apart was her feelings.

I dated an identical twin for several years and was never attracted to his brother. By the time I'd fallen in love with the one twin, they had started to look very different to me even though when I first met them I couldn't tell them apart. Now, though, when I run into either of them, I can't tell them apart very well any more.

6. Doherty5073 explains why you should always grab both asses

Dated an identical twin for 2 years, you can tell the difference between the 2 fairly quickly. Only not from behind when they're doing the dishes side by side and you grab the wrong ones arse. They still laugh bout it years later

Phil and Lil approved.

7. ​Kiiochii only cares about being the hotter wife.

I'm married to one and we 3 live together. I remember not knowing which one is which the first year we first met, 10 years later, I find myself forgetting they are twins.

I love my husband and feel attracted to him while I feel absolutely nothing for his brother, not even physically.

The only thing it bothers me is that they are so close and they love to do things together, I often end up walking alone, sometimes eating alone..

I hope his brother to marry a special girl, someone who is really nice but won't overshadow me, cute but not cuter than me, preferably with the same clothes and shoes sizes, someone who can be my BFF... I'm now realizing I'm secretly worried about my future sister in law to be too perfect or hot..

8. Zen-Jitsu is somehow jealous of all the trouble his identical twin dad found himself in.

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 mom 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.

Be careful what you wish for.

9. Finally, we have kingpinkay, who's twin uncles had to constantly either enter or exit the closet.

I have uncles who are identical twins. One was married to a woman and had kids, while the other was gay. Often times people would accuse my straight uncle of having a secret gay love life before they realized they were twins. It made it pretty awkward for both of them.
