My boyfriend (nearly 19) and his sister (16) are extremely close to the point it annoys me. Most of the time it's just them at home as their mother stays with her boyfriend a lot so his sister cooks for him, cleans up after him, does his washing etc. They have endless nick names for each other, they watch tv together at night while she's wearing short shorts and crop tops. He picks her up or Puns her down and tickles her silly. One minute she's bossing him around the next he's treating her like a baby. I'm also pretty certain she doesn't like me. Is this normal behaviour? I'm an only child so a bit unsure
Is this a normal brother/sister relationship?

Eh, nothing really wrong with that.2
Yeah... It's normal.
Swap the word "sister" for "little brother", and it pretty much sounds like how I mess around with my baby bro when we were young.4
I saw one case and heard of a few others about brothers/sisters falling in love (I know it's sick), but it's very rare. you're probably just jealous he gives her more attention1
You haven't mentioned human contact, resting heads or legs/arms touching and playful or flirty hitting would be weird, however if they keep their distance and occasionally hug then i think thats ok.0
think about Angelina and her brother lol0
As long as the relationship doesn't look like a scene from The Dreamers by Bernardo Bertolucci, I think it's OK.0
Sounds kinda normal to me. Although my sister doesn't really clean after me or anything like that. Im older so i do most of the cooking and stuff. But yes i tickle her and she always hugs me and stuff. We can do stuff together like watch videos on her iPad and stuff.0

That's completely normal... Some siblings are just (luckily) more close to each other than others, which is not surprising since they've grown up with each other since birth. Everything you said, bossing around, treating like a baby, nicknames, play fighting and tickling is all completely normal in a sibling relationship.
Her choice of clothing is completely irrelevant, my bro walks around in his boxers sometimes as does my dad even. Do I get turned on? Hell fucking no! Brothers are the same about their sisters, they do not get turned on by their sibling. It's just simply not the same as seeing the opposite sex who isn't related to you. I walk around in booty shorts and crops at home all the time, basically what I sleep in. My brother doesn't give two shits.
Now if they were flirting, that would be a different story, but it seems like they are not.0
Its extremely normal. They are each others support system and siblings can be very close when the parent is absent often. I know this from experience... lived on a farm. I did the washing, my sister did the cooking and my brother did the outside jobs. We would slumber over in each others room, watched the same tv from the same couch, play fought and when we were out and about... always checked in on each other.
Sounds like you have some trust issues as you appear to be jealous of your boyfriend and his sister.0
I mean as teens to be honest not really if she was a little younger then yes, it's a tad immature but then again they're siblings.0
Some people have feelings for their cousin. Never heard of brother and sister, they could orrrr.. Maybe they just care that much for each other, and she doesn't want u to steal her brother away. I don't do NONE of that with my brother. That's weird.. Ill clean his room only if my mom tell me to.0
Yup it's normal. I'm the exact way with my big brother but it's because he's also like my best friend. We share everything and for once, I can be around a guy without wondering if he'll hit on me.0
Its very unnormal0
I'd say the realsuonship is put to an extreme due to the fact that their mother isn't around much, they look out for each other a lot and probably wouldn't be so close in different circumstances tbh. I can totally see why it's of putting but I doubt that they see it as abnormal and it would be weird if they where like attracted to each other0
There mom doesn't pay enough attention to them so yeah but u should try to hang out with her so u can be friends0
Yes this is perfectly normal !0
Are they related?0
