I need to satisfy my curious instincts...

Why do many of you call each 'bro' and 'sis?'

You see, being a Brit, those sort of names are relayed to blood people, so I did just wonder why this happens...

Because for me, it is false, I would never want a person online who i had never met, to have the same title as my borther....

So, if anybody can clarify, being a thick Brit, I would appreciate it...

OK just to be troublesome of course I will input my own inferior opinion in this matter.
I think that many of us have no real extended family of which to speak of. Sure there may be blood related persons in our lives but their closeness to who we really are is nowhere near what we sometimes find in others. We are all children at heart and it is likely an extension of the childhood moniker of BFF, and all the other terms of connection that children delineate to incorporate themselves into a larger grouping of like minded persons to whom they feel a kinship or connection.
And just to infuriate you beautiful lady I am going to call you my sister in soul at least. Can't go much further than that though as incest is not such a desrious trait even if it is only in imagination. Got ya blushing yet? Good then. Love ya Ttongue

sometimes friends are more like family than your actual family due to a mutual bond between you and them , as a rule, a friend is someone you like/ get on with, this is not necessarily true with a member of your family.

I don't necessarily say sis or bro but I have a tendency to call those that I am close to hun, sweetie, darlin', etc. Just terms of endearment I believe.wave teddybear
