I have a twin sister that I am very similar to- in personality, appearance, background, intellectual level, life goals, interests, etc. There are very few things/areas that we differ in (and those differences are very minor.) We have grown up together and experience struggles together. I am worried that this is a concern regarding shidduuchim since we are so similar we are pretty much interested probably in the same type of boy. Neither of us has started to date yet- but this is something on my mind (as well as hers :-)) Do you have any advice?
Also, do you think it is necessary for us to branch out simply for the sake of branching out, attaining individuality? I know we have different neshamos, but so many times I feel like we are lumped together as "the twins" and not Person X and Person Y- as individuals. By branching out I mean deliberately placing ourselves in separate environments (which is, once again, challenging since we both have same interests....)
