When your little sister is the cuter one...

I love my little sister to bits. We've always been two peas in a pod. We're the best of friends, even though 75% of our time spent together is spent fighting. One additional and perhaps insignificant fact is, well, she's better looking than me.

It used to bother me. I used to be the thinner one, and my sister was short and stubby with a round face. Then puberty hit, and she magically got taller, thinner and hotter all of a sudden.

I guess the best thing to do in this situation is to... Well, there are two options. You can:

1) Set out on an epic quest to look like her, or better than her. Lose weight, get that sun-kissed tan like hers, get a boob job, alter your physical appearance in the most extreme and painful way possible.

2) Accept it. Your sister is going to look better than you for the rest of your life. You are both beautiful in your own special ways. It's impossible to look exactly the same, unless you're identical twins, but then there are still some differences... Such as your fingerprints. Not that that really matters, though. *Ehm...* Anyway, people will love her for who she is, and you for who you are.

For my sister and I, I guess our physical appearance is also a reflection of our personalities and interests. My sister is an outdoorsy kinda gal who enjoys the beach, typical outgoing teenager things and mainstream pop and hip hop music. I'm quite the opposite. I love the indoors, being alone, curling up with a book and sitting on my bed doing crafts. My music taste ranges from the underground to the golden oldies. She's an extrovert, I'm an introvert. Not that any of this is relevant, I just thought you might be interested. You're not? Okay then...

Do any of you have a better looking younger sister? 
If yes, does it bother you? Or are you cool with it?

  1. I was the better looking younger sister. :P
    My sister was beautiful, but she had some features that most people wouldn't find attractive, like a round nose, droopy eyes and small lips. I still thought she was gorgeous though. But she reminded me all the time that I was the better looking one. lol. BTW you guys look more like cousins.
