Today, I was on a date with a very intelligent and handsome guy. I was so nervous that when he was telling me about his twin sister, I asked him if they were identical twins. FML

Awkward.. but if the 'intelligent and handome' guy doesn't have a good enough sense of humour to not hold it against you, then you're probably better off without him :-)

I would probably do that too, honestly. He probably thought it was cute! If not...AVADA KEDAVRA!

Intelligent, handsome and a sense of humor? Come on, let's not get greedy now. Nobody's perfect.

i dont see how its that bad not all twins are identical.

124 - this is a GUY talking about his twin SISTER. I'd be a little shocked if they were identical.

It is actually possible to have different gendered identical twins so you didn't ask anything wrong op

I wish I could've seen the look on his face when you said that,

Go on.....what comes after the comma?

After the comma comes me explaining that was a typo. Oops.

Why are all of the Harry potter fanatics on today? I am one too, but still.

A few FML posts back there was one about Hogwarts. That may be why. I commented on that one as well. Besides that FML, I haven't seen any other HP fans, though.

One post about Hogwarts and they leave dungeons and dragons to respond? For me it's World of Warcraft or cCivi 5. xD

I love Harry Potter I can't see pms as I'm on the app but I will fav this fml to see your reply! I have Harry's wand replica, did you get yours from noble collection? Also I want to visit The world of HP so much!!! Also sorry for going off topic fmlers :( forgive me

I got my wand at the park, as well as the robes, scarf, and bag.. :P I'm a dork

HP FOREVER!!!!! I AM A HARRY POTTER ADDICT SO WHOOOO!!!!

Get to know him more and you'll become more comfortable around him. I'm sure he found it, as people with feelings would say, sweet.

*Cute. Not sweet (I'm not very familiar with human feelings).

6/9 gota say I literally laughed for a good five min while reading your profile. Thanks for that.

I don't see the problem, I have friends that are identical twins. One is a guy one is a girl. You're an idiot for getting worked up about it, and I fail to see how your life is now fucked.

Doesn't matter, had sex.

Well for all you know they could be fraternal twins, so it's not a bad question

If one is male and the other is female, they are definitely fraternal; there were two eggs present and both were fertilized separately within the same womb, However they are no more alike than any other pair of siblings (genetically speaking) Identical is the exact opposite of fraternal; there was one egg fertilized by one sperm that later split resulting in two genetically identical children of the same sex. *cue nerd spew end*

Boy-girl twins are always fraternal. They make look alike but they aren't identical. Aw crap, 24 beat me to it

Umm, if it is HIS twin sister, then they are fraternal twins. There's no might be and it doesn't make it a reasonable question. It is still an awkward and nervous first date question.

25- It's okay. I just figured that if you made it through 8th grade, that these things were common knowledge. Guess not -.-

10, yes it is a bad question. You are quite dim.

I was just thinking in terms of looks..similar features...I totally spaced thinking about the fact they are different genders

I know boy-girl twins who look identical, so it's a perfectly reasonable thing to ask. Obviously they're still fraternal twins but she could've played it off as just being curious to that. My school had about 15 sets of twins/triplets one year so I saw it all that year alone.

boy/girl twins are always fraternal

Why do people always say this??

35, someone has to. SkyBirdy decided to be that person.

It doesn't even apply here well. If anything, the guy in the anecdote should be told "She's a keeper."

It would be funny I he said yes and his sister looks very manly...

Well since she said he's handsome I'd doubt he looks girly

I hope that wasn't an impression that could ruin it. We all have our moments. "Fuck. Did I really just say that...?"
