Brotherly love is like no other.

Having siblings makes growing up more interesting, even if it doesn't necessarily make it more fun at times. For girls with brothers, it's especially awesome.

Why? We get a lot of perspective on how guys work, including how long they take in the bathroom every morning, how often they ignite their own flatulence, how long they sulk and lose themselves in World Of Warcraft after a breakup, and more.

Brothers can also come in handy when it comes to picking out gifts for your boyfriends, picking out boyfriends in general (they have cute friends!), and occasionally covering for you when you break curfew.

However, brothers aren't always a picnic, and any girl who grew up with one or more male siblings in her life can confirm that. Here are just a few of the struggles that girls with brothers grow up dealing with on a daily basis:

1. You're used to having your boyfriends' lives threatened.
