any others of y'all out there? It's mad weird to like explain what it's like being an only child to people who have brothers and sisters and shit, so I started a thread just in case some of y'all happen to share this rare ass situation. Memories, situations, ways you feel like it affected your personality? Imaginary friends? lol

I hate to get multi-player video games on Chirstmas. All your friends are playing with their family, and all you got is yourself. Brings a single tear to my eye...

Witless, I can be your Asian brother.


But on the real, I have a younger brother. If I was an only child, I'd get beat more, so it works out in the end.

i was born in 1984, the year George Orwell predicted that Apple would dominate.

i had no imaginary friend, i have an alter ego though, not unlike Charles Bukowski/Hank Chinaski. He's still around, I whip it out the moment i step out the door.

that would blow to be an only child


it doesn't really blow...if it does, definitely more Rick Ross than Jenna Jameson.

word, I think i've noticed that Only Children are into like grown up shit way earlier that other kids since we dont have other kids to do kid shit with. I was like closely following politics and shit since I was in 6th grade just because my parents are political junkies and I picked that up by like osmosis

yeah at the end of the day everyone is an Only Child. an Only Child of God. and remember, nobody is your friend or enemy, they're your teachers and random hookups for one night. At the end of the day, all you got in this world is your dick. And if you're a girl...well, SOL buddy, SO fucking L.

Ayo I grew up very athletic, hard headed
thought I knew everything, wanted to do everything
I was spoiled, stubborn, the only child
so the only thing I could do was hold it down

get all the love and get all the blame

i guess it might mean why i prefer RPG/single player games most of the time.
all my friends all got siblings and I'm the only one that doesnt and they think im lucky, but honestly shits gets kinda lonely sometimes. i know it made me more independant. from grade 3 till now i've been basicly living on my own since my mom and pops had to work till late.

Sometimes i get those moments now where i just prefer to be alone and not be bothered just me and my thoughts. and my girlfriend thought it was weird when i was at her place and just left for a walk and sat at a park bench for a long ass while. and she thought i was pissed at her but she just didnt understand lol

yeah and most of the stuff I say, it would take someone who's been around me for 50 years to understand what I'm babbling about.

^^ holy shit thats like finding a way to divide by zero

idunno bout you guys but i think being an only child and having those preferred quiet moments just seems to ease my head, sometimes i get into deep thought about things going around me.

i think its safe to say that most only kids mature faster mentally and as a person, and its also evident that most of us when it comes to music prefer the lyrical shit.

but then again we like to go stupid and party hard when we get the chance.

OC checkin in!

Spoiled? No, "taken care of." Yes.

Its not that big of a deal when you have lived it your whole life and cannot do anything to change it!! I like the motivation it has given me to be successful and the things I have been very fortunate to have and have experienced b/c of being an OC.

I will someday have 2+ kids, just because I know its what I truely want and not something related to problems or downfalls associated with being the OC!

Deep stuff here!!

I'm not an only child, but shit I might as well be. Me and my sister don't get along period at all...she on her shit and i'm mines. I never had imaginary friends but i sure as hell talked to myself alot still do from time to time..weird I know, also to the person that said they kinda grew up fast because they're parents worked late I can also relate..since like kindergarten growing up in the projects on some hell of an island with my dad being some dead beat and my mom struggling to provide for me and my sister, I grew up fast never cared for toys and shit like most kids my age...i got into toys in like middle school LOL bionicles or some shit...but all in all yeah I can relate to some of yall.

It is what it is.
