Identical tirplet sisters have revealed their struggle to find love hard as guys are constantly comparing them to see who is the “prettier” or trying to chat them up all at once to “increase their chances.”
Sherena, Kayley and Elise Terry, 18, of Gravesend, Kent, are incredibly close sisters and say they wouldn’t change to be triplets, despite the daily comments about which of them is “prettier” or “skinny” in an attempt to separate the identical sisters.
The 18-year-olds have to fight to “be their own people” because guys don’t bother getting to know their individual personalities, but just flirt with them to increase their chances of dating.
Sherena, the only triplets in a relationship, also has to deal with rude comments saying that her boyfriend likes her sisters because they are so similar, which makes relationships “uncomfortable” for all girls.
But the sisters don’t let this put them down and are even capitalizing on their brand as an identical threesome by pursuing a social media career and getting paid for viral posts about life as triplets, with videos of them in matching outfits showing it off. be most popular.

Sherena said: “Usually it’s guys who compare us in comments on TikTok and say which one they like better or skinnier and sometimes it could be girls too, but it’s always about our looks.
“It’s not nice to hear and we just think it’s a little weird that people feel the need to write stuff like that.
“It makes it harder to find love because guys think it’s a little weird that they have a girlfriend who has two sisters who look like her, it definitely puts them off.
“We get a lot of people saying ‘Your boyfriend must like your sisters because you all look the same’, but it just doesn’t work that way, we all have our own personalities and differences, so it’s just kind of weird to say.
The sisters said they find it hard to be their own person because people always compare them to each other
“We understand why people think it, but we’re our own people and it’s just a little awkward.”
Elise added: “Guys will try to message us all at the same time to increase their chances of a date which is really annoying.
“We tell each other right away if a guy has sent us a message, so if it ever happens, we just don’t reply. We’re not the same type anyway, so we’ve never fought over a boy.”
The girls’ parents, Lisa Terry, 49, and Paul Terry, 47, initially thought they were having just one baby, their first child.
But the 12-week ultrasound revealed an additional baby and then two babies, making it the shock of a lifetime for parents as they only planned to have one child.

The triplets have been compared and confused with each other all their lives growing up as identical sisters, even by close family and teachers when they were dressed the same or wore the same uniforms.
They’ve gained a huge following on social media for their striking resemblance and often test their loyal followers by switching places in photos and videos, but say long-term fans will now be able to tell them apart more easily and notice.
Although they have a “natural” similarity in fashion and benefit from sharing clothes, as they grow older the girls develop their own styles in the hope of projecting their individual identity and being less compared.
Elise said, “Our teachers sometimes confused us, so we had to be separated in class so they knew who was who.
“But our friends can tell us apart much more easily because they get to know our differences and personalities better.
“Our grandmothers, grandfathers, aunts and uncles often confused us because our mother wore the same clothes to us when we were little and they sometimes confuse us.
“People who don’t know us very well can never tell us apart. We understand why people confuse us, but it can get a bit tedious and repetitive at times.
“Sometimes we switch places in our TikTok videos to see if people will notice, but most people who have been following us for a while will notice.”

Kayley added: ‘We share clothes and makeup because we are the same size and like a lot of the same things, but we also have our own styles that make us very different.
“I think you like a lot of the same things when you’re triplets.
“We like to dress the same sometimes, especially for TikTok because people seem to like it, but then it gets annoying when people compare us and say ‘the one in the middle is nicer’ or something.”

Even though men compare them to see who is the ‘most beautiful’, the trio is close and said they wanted to stay close to each other when they left their parents’ house
Despite the pitfalls of being identical, the sisters say they wouldn’t change to be triplets because they share an unbreakable bond as three best friends from birth.
The inseparable trio also plans to move in the future and get their own place to become more independent, but say they will never be far from each other.
Sherena said, “We really enjoy being triplets because we can always be together, we have a really strong bond and we do everything together, we’re best friends.
“We have the same friendship group and the same hobbies – we do ballroom and Latin dances together.”
Elise said, “We definitely still want to be close when we move. We said we could live in the same building but in different apartments and that way we are still close but have our own places.
“If we do eventually move, it’s going to be kind of weird after being so used to being together all the time, so we’re going to have to get used to it.”
