When did you meet your first dual, and what was it like? Have you had the benefit of developing a dual relationship/friendship as a child?
I met my first ILE when I was 11. He was very outgoing, full of energy. Full of ideas, things to do, explore. We were crazy. We invented a new language that didn't make any sense We tried to hypnotize each other, it didn't work out, because we started laughing. We invented futuristic submarines and computer systems. We filmed each other. We told ghost stories. We slept in a tent, and made it our home. It was mostly he who called me and suggested things to do. We had a lot of fun.
Funny thing is: I never thought of him as a real friend, I guess we were just too different.
It wasn't until I was 18 I got my next ILE friend.
What about you?
