    I'm in love with my bestfriend, and he's my cousin.

    I fell in love with my first cousin, he's my best friend and I don't know what I'd do without him. Our dads are half brothers, and my mom changed my last name when my parents split up so me and my cousin don't have the same last name so it kinda makes it easier. We shared our...

    I really feel silly right now

    but it's been a few days since I decided to cut ties with my own cousin. I decided to stop talking to him because I've never felt like this about anyone before. That feeling where your heartbeat has this burning desire just to be with that person. My cousin is always so physical...

    Hello I am in love with my cousin,

    Earlier, my cousin asked me

    if I wanna go watch a movie with him tomorrow, and I said yes! Without any second thoughts. I'm not gonna expect too much tomorrow because at the end, I might get hurt. I'm just gonna play it safe for awhile because I'm still not sure if he still likes me.

    but then I keep trying to defend myself saying "you can't control your emotions. It's not your fault on who you end up being attracted to"... But then I feel like it's just an excuse for trying to get out of it. I'm in love with my cousin. The first time we met was when we were...
