Older Sister

of Brother(s)


First Born Older Sisters of Brothers are better equipped to lead their men to success than most other women. Why? They're top-notch leaders themselves.  This is not to say that OSOBs don't have their own designs on conquering the world, but they are naturally inclined to make their men the best they can be.

OSOBs in general (not just First Born OSOBs) intimately understand the male psyches - they know when to coddle a man's emotional needs when he's down in the dumps, and when to give him a firm kick in the butt when it's necessary.

Most heterosexual males are naturally drawn to the take-charge demeanor of Older Sisters of Brothers. Even their worst match - the domineering Oldest Brother of Brother(s) - finds them hard to resist.
