    This experience in my life has led me to really

    think about love. It all started in the summer of 2014 when I helped my cousin (let's call her Amy) move out of her old house. At that time, I was 18 and she was 21. I had never seen her as more than as just my cousin before then. I'm not sure what it was, but after that day we...

    It all started as teasing around

    until we actually got to intimacy. Now I started to develop feeling for him. I noticed him being a little different and we didn't have sex. Until yesterday I told him that we should try to give us some space because I actually care about him. And he just kept silent and I asked...

    One Last Night

    Hey everybody. I haven't been on in a while, but tonight I needed to write. The bottom line of this story is that I've sexted my cousin five times now (I NEVER sent pictures, we just used words), and we had "our last night" (as he put it) on Wednesday night. He's leaving for...

    I've never had a connection like I do with him.

    He's amazing and we have been together for 3 months now. Our family is kind of suspicious but we have decided not to say anything until we have a stable home. I love him more and more with each passing day. I am absolutely terrified of my family finding out. My sister knows and...

    She is such a beautiful person inside

    and out. We would go take private walks together and talk when there were family get togethers. She tells me she loves me... of course I am sure it is platonic. I respect her very much and can't imagine ever doing anything about it but I think she is absolutely amazing

    We have strong feelings toward each other.

    Happy, no arguments. One day he met someone. He felt confused and said that i should forget the more-than-cousins moments. It is heartbreaking and angry for hurting me.
