I'm In Love With My Cousin.

I really like my cousin. She is amazing. I want to tell her. I want to go out with her. I want to kiss her and love on her. Sometimes I see her looking at me, but I'm not sure wether I should tell her. I'm 15 and she is 16, so age isn't a problem or anything. I've become kinda of famous in my youth group for my good foot massages. And on mission trips, when I give her one all I can think about is doing more with her. I massaged more than her feet this time. I kept getting closer and closer towards her "area". I didn't go to close. I went to about halfway up her thigh and she didn't protest or anything. She let me. I rubbed her feet and legs for close to 2 and 1/2 hours. I couldn't help it. I was getting aroused. I wanted to know what was going through her head as I rubbed and rubbed. I also wanted for everyone else in the room to leave. I want to tell her and ask if she feels the same way. I'm just not sure if I should. Any ideas, maybe?

My cousin and I met when we he was 7 and I was 6 we fell instantly in love. We would always sneak away and tell each other things we would never tell anyone else. When he was 11 and I was 10 he kissed me on the lips and I enjoyed it for a while and then we just started kissing longer and then his mom called for him to go home. When he was 14 and I was 13 he came to me when everyone was asleep and sat next to me on the couch. He told me that he loved me and that he wanted me. I knew what that meant so I told him no. I was scared of all the things that could happen. Now I am 19 and everytime I see him he ignored me like nothing ever happened. But it was for the best

You guys are lucky. I'm 13 and live in new York and my cousin is 4 and lives in Puerto Rico

I am in the same situation right now. I am 15 and i just recently met my second cousin that i did not know about and he is 15 too. We met while camping i did not know who he was at first and then someone told me he was my older cousins son. i didn't pay much attention to him until we met face to face and we immediately Locked eyes and stared for about 3 seconds and then said hi and walked away. I felt something so strong that moment, the rest of the day we could not stop looking at each other. Later that night we finally got over the awkwardness and started talking and all of a sudden while we were talking something just clicked. We stayed up ALL night no sleep at all talking about everything and i just felt so close to him, next thing i know we are super tired cuddling with each other inside a van with all of our other cousins asleep. We were so nervous one of them would wake up and see but they didnt . right before we fell asleep he looked at me and kissed me, i got major butterflies . The next day it was not awkward. Now fast forward 3 weeks later we still talk all the time texting and calling non stop but we are trying to hide it from our family.. Am i wrong ? What should i do? Please help ?

I know you should tell her if she didn't stop you from rubbing her legs then maybe she does feel the same way I support you and please tell me how it go's

Well, I'm 12 and my cousin is 13. I felt in love with my cousin since when he came to US. I was at the airport waiting for him to come and when he appeared, he was ugly at first when he was far away and I couldn't see him. When he came closer, He was very cute! Then I became in love with him. He's in 8th Grade and I'm in 6th Grade. Since he started to go to a school named Bronx Green Middle School and a lot of girls liked him. I was very jealous. Then on his facebook page, he had a lot of Girls (Friends). Then I started try to find a remote control and when I got frustrated about not finding it, He was there. He was soo cute, I really wanna tell him that I like him, but then I got under my bunkbed and stood there. So he said what happen? and then I told him I like him, he was concern about it. So he didn't care about it.

From my view it's not a good idea,I could be old school..sounds like ****** to me. Really shouldn't be falling in love with a relative.it causes family to break up.some times it works but still yet the family will have a black cloud over them for practicing ******..what ever choice you make make it wisely.don't think with your ****..

wow this is a tuff situation. I can just advise you to tell her how you feel about her. The truth shall set you free. I can say when i was 11 years old i came to live with some of my relatives and i just had a strong attraction for my first cousin who is three years younger than me. I was 11 he was 8. What started as being playful it soon turned into flirting, and when I was 17 we has sex for the first time. I can say we have been together for 10 years and i still love him the same. He has become my best friend. However, the only problem is that now we are both of age to move out and our relative somewhat have an idea that we have a relationship and are supper upset that we are moving inn. My advise to you is if you love her tell her and fight for her.Confronting the relatives is not an easy thing, they can be judgmental but if you love her fight for her. Tell her that you need to tell her something important that you care about her. The worst thing she can say is no, but if she let you grab her legs for hours most likely she feels the same way about you. Dont give up and fight for what you want, dont ever let anyone tell you who you can love, its your choice.

My cousin is 15 and I'm 14... The last time we saw each other was when I was 3.... And he lived Scotland and I live England 350miles away... And I went Scotland for 3 weeks when I was 13 and my mum dropped me off and I stayed there alone with them and we got closer when I was there and on the way back home we were in the car and I was getting tired so I layed down in the car an I put my pillow on the seat and he put it on his lap and I put my head on it and after a while he layed my head on my cheek and soon after he kiss me on the cheek I got butterflies and kissed I'm back on the forhead and then he kissed me to the lips and soon enough my mum went on my laptop and saw our chat and my mum sister brother nana and grandad know about me and lee going out and there okay with it but they said just keep it to ourselves just incase of people say it discussing but it ain't it was like meeting a new person cos last time I was him was when I was 3.... But I really do love him

When I first met my cousin, I was 13 and he was 9. I didn't feel anything for him. We were just kids, you know? But when I turned 15, everything changed.

He was sleeping over at my house, and a whole bunch of our cousins were staying in one room. At night, he came over to my bunk bed and laid down next to me. He said he had something to tell me, but that he was scared. He said that he had told one of our cousins, but that she had gotten mad and told him to stay away from me. This whole time I had no idea what he was talking about, but he was so scared. I said "If you can't say it, you can write it down." I got a notebook and gave him a pen. When I read his note, it said
I LOVE YOU

He told me he had felt this way since the first time he saw me, when he was only 9! I didn't know what to think. We are cousins, how is it possible to feel that way about your cousin?

Fast forward 5 months, I fell for my cousin so hard. I loved his kisses, and his hugs. Even the way he smelled. One of our cousins caught us kissing... and then my mom started suspecting something between us. She told me that if she ever found out that I was with him, she would literally kill me.

Fast forward 5 years, I am now 20 and he is 16. I still feel the way I did so many years ago. Every time I think that I am moving on, I realize that I'm not. I love him so much... even after 5 years! Everything about him makes me smile. Every time I see him, I get butterflies.

I just told him yesterday that I still like him, and that it's not fair that I want him so badly but can't have him. And that I really missed his kisses.
You know what he said?
He said he knows it's been 5 years, but that time hasn't changed what he feels for me. He said "I want you too." He told me to kiss him. And I am going to! I want to be his... He makes me happy... I want him to make love to me.

Even though I know it's wrong, I know I will always love him. My family won't ever forgive us. I hate it. But I just don't care anymore.

And I still love the way he smells.

I met my 1st cousin when I was 18 when i went to Spain on vacation and went to meet my mothers brother and family, when i came to say hello to him I felt something on my cheek like magic, he would take me on his vespa all around seeing the sights just a beautiful time. He was around 22, & I fell in love with him and he did also. He came to the US 5 months after I returned, it was hard because I told my parents and they were so against it..he was in NJ at his brothers and I in NY..we started seeing each other without no one knowing and eventually they all found out. I was very distraught and wanted to end the relationship but after a while things settled down and we got engaged we did get married in the Catholic Church in Brooklyn NY and moved to NJ where he was working. We went on to have two beautiful children and had a life of ups and downs but we loved each other very much. After 44 years of marriage I lost him to Cancer. It has bee 4 years now since his death and he is the love of my life as I was his..and I still feel the magic on my cheek.

This is so beautiful. You followed your heart despite what other people may have thought <3

Thanks everyone for sharing these stories cuz it helps me lot to know that i am not the only one in this situation. Well here is my story, 5 years ago my aunt and uncle were kinda big into inc3$t, but i though nothing of it and i had went to visit them one summer and my cousin was in the army at the time. I was 15 and he was 18. he was home on leave at that time and i had not seen him in a long time! he looked at me and it was like instantly that we just clicked. that night we sat and talked privately and just had an amazing time being in each other's company. He then left to go back to the ba<x>se he was at in colorado and i lived in SC. We stayed in touch over text messages and i started to fall more in love with him than i already was. We kinda parted for a while and he had gotten married while he was in CO and i was persuing a good relationship and was about to get married but i felt like i really wasn't happy with the man i was with. My cousin had been on my mind alot and i just felt the need to talk to him but he is in jail right now and it killed me when i found that out. My aunt and uncle which is who i live with and has pretty much raised me have no problem with me and my cousin being together and that put a relief on me This is his dad and stepmom. I am now 20 and he is 22 and we are in a relationship and re planning to get married even if it is looked down on cuz we are both in love with each other and i have approval from my aunt and uncle and my friends have no problem either so i kinda have a huge sense of relief in that department. :) but i just thought that i would share my story about the one true love of my life and i really could care less what anybody has to say about it but i really thank everyone for sharing their stories. :)

my family and i had a vacation last November ,we went to my grand mother's house and then i meet my cousin he is just thirteen years of age and i am nineteen....spending time with him , playing just we are the same age as well,i thought at first that I'm just attracted to him because of his nice smile and sharp nose and the voice but I do not imagine i turned it possible to fall in love with my cousin.

you better stop while you still can because if you continue that thing you will regret it for the rest of your life if you can't fight for her against your whole family. I've been in that situation 11 years ago. i had a romantic relationship with my first cousin and i admit, the feeling is second to none. we had the best and we shared sweet moments behind our family. i don't know is someone in the family found out because no one talked to us about it, but there are negative comments and warnings about falling in love with cousins heard. to cut my very long story short, we broke up 8 years ago because of our family. we never had the courage to face them all and tell the truth, we were afraid that they will judge us and get mad when they learned that we already had sex. months after that broke up, i got married because i thought its the best way to stop those craziness. right now i can say I'm happily married, that's what i want people to see me. I'm a great pretender, no one can tell what I'm feeling inside. its so empty and cold, i am so lonely i can hardly breath. no one knows that I've been missing him so much, he's always on my mind. every time i see him, my whole body is shaking and my heart is breaking. 8 years had past but i know i still love him and loving him more day after day. right now, i regret everything i did. there are so many what ifs on mind. what if i didn't let myself fall for him on the first place? what if i fought for him? what if we tried to talk to our family and tell them our secret? what if i go with him when he asked me to run away? what if he knows how i feel today? what if he still love me like the way i do? so many questions that left unanswered because we never tried to fight for our love. right now I'm living with all this regrets and loneliness without him knowing. maybe he thinks i am happy with my life right now. maybe he thinks i already forget the memories that we shared. maybe i won't have a chance to say i never stop loving him. and maybe i will live my life this way until i die.

:( this is sad. I know the feeling except I didnt got married.

I feel so sorry for you.
I think that if you truly want to be happy your should fight for your love, despite the consequences. I did, I've been with my second cousin since December 2012, but I've loved him for so long. It makes me so happy. It really is a dream come true for me &lt;3. We haven't let anyone find out yet but if it comes down to it, I would never let anyone take him from me. No matter what. I hate having to hide now...but I already know that when were found out it won't be pleasant. I expect to lose all my family, friends, I expect the worst. As long as I have him I feel I'll be okay.
What I'm saying is, forget everything else and go for it, get a divorce if you have to. I truly don't believe you should sacrifice your happiness for anything. Don't live with regrets.
Do you really want to die without being able to be with man you love ?

I think you should have fought for him. Its never to late. Your are supposed to live your life for you and no one else. the way you are describing you and your cousins relationship sounds like it was and still is worth fighting for. Dont let anyone come in the way of your happiness , Thats just my opinion..

I legit thought i was alone in this situation but i can see that im not. I'm in love with my 3rd cousin on my dad side. He's 11 years older than me ( im 19 hes 30). Well ive known him since i was little. We always used to see each other on vacation every other year. We would play together and we didnt really thing nothing off it, until 2 years ago. We hadn't seem each other in 7 years. I was at my aunts house and he was outside with my cousin. And i went outside and i was at the top of the stairs and him at the bottom. When i saw him i fell in love instantly. He wasnt the best looking person but he had the most amazing heart. We started talking and flirting and thats when he told me he had a girlfriend and that broke my heart. After that i came back to america cuz my vacation was over. We had each others email so we kept in touch once in a awhile. One day he emailed me and he said that he had broken up with his girlfriend, so i decided to tell him how i feel. When i told him he said he felt the same way and he felt that way since he last saw me. Since we live in different countries we keep in touch by webcam. All i no is that we madly in love but were so scared to tell our parents. If my dad finds out for sure he'll kill me. Please comment! What should i do?

I`ve been in a relationship with my first cousin for 5 months,, he was my 3rd boyfriend and it felt like he was my truelove,, i was just 15 years old back then, we were so close, we go out, he even thought me how to play basketball. and then one night he confess his feelings for me and he asked me if i wont get mad if he kiss me and i said ``no i wont``,, so we kiss, at that time i dont have any feelings toward him, but day by day i found myself falling in love with him,, i consider our relationship seriously but our parents and family get mad when they found out..so we decided to broke up,, we have been apart for almost 2 years and it was hell, i really love him sop much,, after our broke up i never had a serious relationship, and i felt something is wrong and missing,, i really dont know what to do??<br />
pls help??:(

Im happy there is somewhere where i can admit my problems to, ive been best friends with my cousin since forever, but at the age of 10, i started having strong feelings for her, ive always tried to keep it cool and tell her that she is my best friend and that there's nothing that can break our bond. She's amazingly gorgeous, and every-time i see her, i just feel there's no one else in this world that can make me smile the way she does. At the age of 11 she moved to NC and we got separated, but i had just recently visited her and when i saw her, its as if nothing has change. She is Spontaneous and Wildly fun. Every time she laughs i feel happy. (by the way were both 15) i write poems that come from the inspiration of her. and every time i see her, i feel like my heart is about to burst. there are many things that are holding me back from telling her the truth, and every single time i hold back, i get this chills that run down my spine that reach all the way to my chest and give me these anguishing pains. If i could hug her forever, i would. there's no one else in this world i would rather be with right now. She is completely different from me, that is what makes her my other half. last time i visited her we stayed up all night long talking of our childhood and watching funny movies, there was a point were we got so bored that we just started holding ice cubes till each one of them melted.I love it how when there's a problem, i am one of the first one's to know, but i wish i could do more, i wish i could be there when she needs me. But i cant, cause if i see her again, everything would fall apart. My love for her is important to me, but her comfort of me and her as cousins means way more to me. I would rather be with her until i die, then say my feelings and never see her again. I may be crazy saying all this, but there's no where i can share my story. And it seem's that all my life accomplishment will happen except my confession of love. No matter what happen's i will keep that one regret with me forever even if it cause's me a heart attack. thanks for listening guys.

Reading this makes me happy and sad and I was thinking about my cousin the whole time because I feel the same way. I just can\'t get the courage to tell her.

I am actually glad I'm not so alone with my feelings. Me and my cousin met at a vacation to Mexico when we were around 10. Her mom made us kiss when we first met and we did but we didn't think anything of it. She lived in Texas and would go every summer to Mexico to visit our grandparents just like me and my family did, only we lived in California. We had a bit of a bumpy relationship at first but after our grandparents came to the us, because they could no longer take care of themselves and lived with my uncle, she started coming to where I lived, by this time I was 14 and she was 13 and I started to have feelings for her. I am six months older than her. So we each had emails and would talk to each other occasionally. Eventually we got phones and would text each other onstantly. On one occasion I told her I loved her but she took it as a love between siblings. She is an only child so I guess I could see how she would feel that way. Well now were both 16 and I am incredibly in love with her and we say we love each other all the time but she still doesn't know in what way I love her . She is nice to me and always loves my company. She even gets mad if I don't keep IP with her texts , but the thing is I still haven't told her in what way I like her. And this summer she came again to California and came to my house for a weekend. We wanted to sleep In my room to catch up but my two sisters wouldn't allow it . We all watched a movie that night me her andmy two sisters and we we're laying next to each other on my bed with my sisters on either side . She started to poke me under the covers and I grabbed her hand to try and stop her. Eventually we were holding hands under the cover in what felt like a passionate way for atleast half of the movie. We never mentioned it to each other but she had only made me more mad for her. She has a boyfriend at her high school in Texas who I despise but u can't do anything about. I know this is all wrong and my family wouldn't approve and she likely doesn't have the feelings I have for her anyway, but the problem is that I love her so much and I can't stop thinking about her and I want to get over her. I almost want to tell her to stop talking to me because the more she tells me she loves me the more my heart breaks and I don't want that pain anymore. So what should I do ?

i was at my aunts house and out of know where my cousin kissed me is tarted to get big feelings for him then he started rubbing me and i got even bigger feelings for him then he said he wants to make love to me that's when i said to my self I'M IN LOVE WITH HIM after that night me and him started to talk his mom went on his facebook and saw our messages and my mom went on my facebook and saw the messages we got in trouble but now sence its been 4 months i want to tell him i'm in love with him should i tell him?

ive bin in love with my first cousin since i first seen her and that was 5 years ago im tim ive tried to tell her my feelings and to see if she feels the same but everytime i do her twin sister comes in the room and messes things up we hang out all the time but i dont have a sence of timing i dont know when and where to tell her i try to tell her after we have bin hanging all day but cant get the words to process its hard to love someone and keep it locked away like that

im inlove with my cousin too...im a girl....i dont want him to be my boyfriend or something....i just wanna know if he likes me back... and then after that i'll forget that im inlove with him, because i know its bad to have a relationship with your cousin....btw im 13 yrs old and he is 18 yrs old, he is 5 yrs older than me....but you know he is a short guy thats why we almost have the same height...and he is quiet too like me.... lol im just saying :) What should I do to know If he likes me back?

hey :/ im a christian and i am in love with my first Cousin , ive never met a girl in my whole life that i feel so right around , so is everything ive ever wanted in a mate and idk what to do i find her looking at me alot and its like we act diffrent when its just me and her im 22 she's 19 and and ive been pretty depressed l8tly and the only time i feel right is wen im in prayer or around her :/ , it hurts so bad to love someone and try and hide it . : /

I just met my second cousin and thought he was really cute and everytime i looked up at him he was looking at me and ever since i got home i have thought about him but idk if he likes me to what should i do

Well, here's the story to top them all....My first cousin and I met when we were children (6 and 7) We instantly liked each other and got along very well (I thought he was so cute, but nothing else) Then I moved away and came back when I was 14 and he was 15. That's when he noticed me for the first time and we fell in love. We had a wonderful summer relationship, but again I had to move away... I was devastated and he wasn't too happy about it either... Two years went by... He thought I'd never come back and he started dating a girl he met in H.S. <br />
<br />
I came back when I was 16 and he was 17. When I found out he was with this girl I got very angry at him. My heart was broken. I still loved him so...<br />
<br />
I had written him a letter telling him I loved him and that I would be back, but that letter somehow got intercepted (I guess his mother was against us too) and was given to my mother. My mother was upset and totally against us being together and spoke very sternly to him when he came around to see me... Even so, he tried talking to me but since I was so angry at him, I refused to talk to him and was very mean to him and scared him off. He was very angry at me too at that point and...There started 35 years of us not speaking to each other.<br />
<br />
He eventually got his girlfriend pregnant and he tried to do the right thing and married her (He was 18). Then he joined the Army and he left town leaving his wife behind whom I saw with their baby quite a lot and it killed me. She eventually left to join him where he was.<br />
<br />
I went on with my life and had 4 boyfriends, marrying the 4th when I was 22, but I married without being in love... I just had to "move on", I told myself...<br />
<br />
Years went on and we never saw each other again. Since my mother knew, she made sure that his name was never mentioned in my presence and I never did dare to ask about him. He never heard about me either and also never dared to ask about me...<br />
<br />
As expected, his first marriage ended in divorce after two kids. So he came back to our home town. By then I was married. He moved on... He met a girl that already had a child. He liked her enough to marry her. I think he even loved her, he stayed married to her for 21 yrs. But they had problems and it also ended in divorce... <br />
Meanwhile I had a daughter with my husband after 11 yrs of marriage. (I stayed married because he was a good man and I had no interest in anyone else anyway..) Now my daughter is 17 and has one more yr of High School to go.<br />
I have asked my husband for a divorce finally and we are divorcing in the best terms possible.<br />
<br />
Here's where this gets interesting. Through another cousin whom knew nothing about what happened between us when we were young, we met again, through Facebook. He was 50 and I was 49. He was then living with a girlfriend (whom he did not really love) it took us some time to start talking again through FB, but we eventually did. As we did, all of our old feelings started to come back. (We live very far apart. I live up in the northeast and he lives down in the far south.) We started a long distance relationship...<br />
<br />
We decided to meet in person after talking on our cell phones for over 6 months.<br />
We decided to meet in our old home town. We went there by ourselves, I had to go for my 30th H.S. reunion and he went with me. We fell in love very deeply all over again. After 35 yrs.<br />
<br />
We have now somehow managed to keep this relationship secretly going for one yr now and until my divorce is final and my daughter graduates and goes off on her own. We love each other more each day and nothing will stop us from being together this time. Come hell or high water!! We should have been together all of our lives... If it had not been for my mother's interference... She is now to old to do anything about it... <br />
But also we are to old for anyone to tell us how to live our lives. We plan to live happily ever after... (We will be 52 and 53 when we finally unite), We plan to marry... We are very Happy... Finally!

I am so glad I am not alone! I love my first cousin and he's admitted he's very attracted to me as well...And that he loves me He stayed the night with me twice and we... Yeah. But not only that we cuddled and talked and just.. Wow it was the most perfect moment in my life.. Hes 22 and I'm 20 he means the world to me I never felt a love so strong till him... He said last night it was wrong and our aunt who passed away would be horrified.. it hurt worse then anything I've ever felt before I hid the pain very well.. But the way he looks at me... I see the passion and the love... I want to be his so bad.. Even if we had to hide it I would do that more then willingly.. I have no idea how I can tell him we aren't the only ones... I just... Idk.. He's stolen my heart and doesn't even know he did.. Last night I was laying on his chest just talking and I said shh and just listened to his heart beat and all I kept thinking was "I hope your hearts mine because mine is your" I don't know what to do.. Advice??

It is nice to know that I am not the only one. I am dating my first cousin for a year now. We both accept that we will face a lot of problems and ignorance from our family when we spell out on them about us. We haven't told anyone yet. She had a boyfriend when I told her that I love her. She broke up with him for me. <br />
Everyone we know will point out every possible reasons and tell us that we should not be together. But we also know that no matter how things get harder, we will move forward whether they accept us or not. We decided that we are going to live our live with or without them. They will understand eventually. I know so and I will do so because from the moment she told me that she loves me too, I told myself that I will never go back. I have never been stronger mentally before her. I have had some girlfriends before her and she had boyfriends too. That made us to know ourselves that our love is real and strong. <br />
Dating a cousin has several good things too with all the security and comfort and no need to try hard at all. It is like we have been dating all of our lives. I know all about her and she knows mine too.<br />
But one day, it all will comes to us, being awkward and weird around the families. We have even decided the time when we are going to tell them. We just hope that things will not get out of our hand and get ugly. If there is anyone who have told to his or her whole family, please share your experiences. It will help a lot.<br />
All I can tell them is "falling in love with someone isn't something we can choose, it will just happen when things and timing are right with the right one".

I wish you the very best of luck Kingsuncountry.

I hope your family come to terms with your love for each other and in time be genuinely happy for you.

I first met my cousin when she was 19 and myself 29. There was a strong flirtatious connection from the start. Over the years, my feelings grew stronger and stronger. I remember many Family get together's where our banter, chemistry and flirting were obvious. My Mother and sister asked me if there were anything going on between us. There wasn't.<br />
<br />
Eventually, I had direct contact with her. We had been out a few times alone and cooked a meal for each other too. I respectively behaved myself as I feared rejection. The times she has a boyfriend in her life would make me feel sick and when she's been single and I've had a girlfriend, I've always wished it was her. <br />
<br />
My desire for her grew so strong I eventually told her how I felt. She had a boyfriend at the time and she resisted my desire to kiss her and hold her hand. I wasn't in control of my emotions and wish I took a lighthearted approach. I avoided the Family do's for 3 years until recently. I was with my last girlfriend when we met. It was magic.<br />
<br />
Over 20 years has past and we are currently both single. I keep thinking we are to be together. My cousin makes me feel like no girlfriend has. I have just sent her an email inviting her the keep in touch. I no longer care what the Family would think. I will try and gently woe her. If you're in a similar situation or if you both feel the same, go for it. Ignore people who say it's wrong. <br />
<br />
True love knows no boundaries and attraction isn't a choice.

Good for her ! I love my cousin I'm 14 and he's 25 and I don't know what to do :(

i am loving my cousine alot... i am now in age 18 and he is in age 26, i can do anything to make him happy, i want his happyness only, if he loves other girl i will help him to marrie her. but i can feel still he is mine ,i want to tell him about my feelings on him, he is really sweet and cute not looking attractive but awesome personality good hight, our age has so much diffrence but i dont mind that, i wish he also have the same feeling on me like i have on him .{i love you sweet heart....please be mine},i want to propose him like that, i wish he will agreed for my proposal but unfartunatly he is no more...i mean he is dead in one incident. but i still loving him and i will go closer to him ,now i am crying...

I'm turning 15 in a few months and I've been in love with my cousin for 3 years. When I was 4 I went and lived with my aunt and I didn't see my mom or my family. When I was 8 years old I moved to a different state, and my mom and me decided to go back to visit our family when I was 12. My cousin was there and all of my family members were. He hit it off, and we had really cool conversations, and we had a lot in common. I started to get feelings for him, but I didn't say anything cause we were both in a serious relationship. His was more serious than mine. When I left my heart broke, I didn't want to leave him. A few day after I left, which was on Christmas his gf broke up with him. Then a whole bunch of stuff happened, but I went out to vist my family again. While I was out there, he spend almost every second together, and I we weren't then we were texting. One night we were texting ( this was the only night he didn't stay with me) our feelings came out, he told me that he has loved me for 3 years and I told him I felt the same. The last night I was there, we made out and there was a lot if touching involved, but no sex because my grandma and my mom was in the living room, and we were in the bedroom. It was perfect, it felt so right. We are still together, we have been going out for about a month now. It sucks cause he lives 3,000 miles away from me. He make it work, and the day I turn 18 I'm moving out there to spend the rest of my life with him.

When I was 13, my madre and padre died .. I had to move in with my aunt .. She has 4 kids .. She lived in Hawaii for about a year . We then moved to Vegas to be closer to her 2 boys . The first weekend we were there it was June14th 2010 i took my cousins blanket and pillow and ran into the other room .. He ran after me to grab it back . We were wrestling , and things were getting pretty hot and heavy . Then he started breathing hot air onto my neck , I liked it .. He kissed me .. From then on nothing was the same . We first had sex on august 4th 2010 , then we got into a relationship , on because I wanted to .. We have been in a relationship since July 4 th 2011 . He is the love of my life , & one day I will marry him . Though his mom and our family know nothing about is being in love , we make it work .. If I were u I would tell my cousin how I felt . Because if I wasn't with my cousin now I don't know what I would do . He means the world to me . <3 follow you heart , & be open & honest with her .

I love my cousin too

I love my cousin too

wow i feel the same way im 17 (male) my cousin shes only 14 but we both realy like eachother but are family wouldnt like it verry much if they found out. we have made out several times and every time we do it just makes it better and better we both have been talking alot and want to get together on a day that her mom dont got to work so we can have sex but im still contomplaiting cuz if our family found out we would never be able to see eachother again.

I'm in the same situation. I'm 19 and she's 16. For years we've only seen eachother 5 or 6 times a year. Whenever we do see eachother we're together the entire time just talking about random things. The whole family seems to think she has a crush on me but Ican never tell for sure. All I know is that whenever we're together I can't take my eyes off her. She's so beautiful and intelligent. I'm just worried that if I tell her how I feel that despite our family's belief, she won't feel the same way. Also, since no one in the family has commented on whether or not they do or would approve of it, I'm worried about that as well. Should I tell her and risk the good relationship that we have if she doesnt feel the same, but also risk alienating our family if she does?

sorry but i just think its weird to LOVE someone (your related too)...i dont have a problem with it but for you people who do LOVE your cousins or brother/sisters or woever else i wish you good luck

And i want to talk to her more and get to kinow her more but idk how she lives three hours awy and i want to hold her in my arms and love her i am in the 9th grade and ive been single since the 6th and i long for love so i might be a hopless romantic so any help? Comment back

Alright mine might be a little more lame i am a 14 year old boy and i went to a baby shower yesterday and some of my cousins were there and there is four of us that are the same age and on of them is so beautiful to me and we havent seen each other in so long and when i saw her that day i got the most amazing feeling in my stomach she looked so beautiful and awestrucking but i was to shy to talk to her and the thing that sucked the most was that she met all of my top fetishes she has pale skin for a Mexican and green eyes and black hair and last night i had the naughtiest dream ever involving her and Im glad Im not the only one in this situation

well, my situation is similar but I a 20 year old dude and my female cousin is 28. We are currently bf/gf and have been for 2 years officially. What I did was that I brought up the courage to tell her my emotions that i have for him/her, and she understood. If you want to be with your cousin, just tell him/her that you love him/her more than a cousin. If he/she understands, he/she would try to calm u down and accept that fact. but for now, be very close to him/her by doing cute stuff for him like helping him/her through some personal problems, that way he/she garners some emotions for you, and once you are at lest 17, tell him/her the truth and if he/she has those feelings for ya, he/she would gladly be your bf/gf, if not, he/she would still love ya, but it wont be the same. Hence, you would have to move on from that point on. don't worry if you cousin ain't your bf/gf right now, if u two were ment to be together, it will happen!!! :-) NOTE: this comment applies who want more from their cousin relationship. may God be with you on your journey in life and bless you all !!!!!

As a young teen I did have a some moments with my cousin's. It was obvious that we had feelings for each other. One night as we got in from a social event all the family member's were present and we both got and ***-chewing from all the relatives and family members. We were told tonight is the last time to see each other and after that NO-MORE!. My culture don't allow close cousins to have relationships, forbidden and I didn't know we were cousins till the whole plate got spilled.. Now I'm thinking that we should had some real sex when they told us this is your last evening together. LOL..As guy's we always joked that with cousins thats where you learn about sex.lmao!

Hi I'm 14 and I'm in love with my cousin whose 15 we've been dating for almost a month and a half now and it was the best decision I ever made me and him just clicked I was shy at first but so was he as we slowly came out of our shells together I noticed I had feelings for him in a more intamit way and so did he. I love him very much and I can't wait to spend the rest of my life with him<3 and when it comes to love I don't think age matters it's just about believing ( which not many couples have ) but I believe in him and he believes in me and we support eachother =] we make decisions together and even though our relationship is long distance ( he lives TEN HOURS away from me) we make it work we communicate over Facebook daily. But only very few people know about us ( I could count off one hand how many people know) and our family still doesn't know. But some of the smartest men married their cousins ( Charles Darwin and enstine ) plus the risk of deformation when having a child with your cousin is only ONE percent higher than having a child with someone your not related to PLUS everyone in the world is ATLEAST your 40th or 50th cousin and if you doubt my facts google it :] so in the end I'm pro shaggin cousins!

:) going on a few years of secret "under the radar" relationship here. ill tell u one thing, its hard! theres ups and downs but the nookie is awesome!

Dear readers,<br />
I am 14 and I am in love with my cousin (whom is 15) I hadn't seen him in years until I saw him at Christmas at a family reunion thingy. When I saw him I got butterflies but I tried to ignore this feeling since we were cousins but strangely I thought he had this feeling towards me too by the end of the week we were best buds and it was hard to say goodbye but we kept in touch on Facebook and then I came back up (north near where he lives) for another family reunion we saw eachother again and it was like two peas I'm a pod we went baby sitting together for 3 hours it was very late when the parents of the children got home but the kids went straigt to bed when we got there so there was alot of time to talk we talked about everything mostly highschool because I'm just starting this year and he is going into his second year but we started cuddling and that seemed fine but when we go back we had to share a tent which I didnt mind. But when we were in there he told me he loved me and that I was his favorite cousin which I shrugged off because cousins love cousins right ? So he kissed me on the cheek and then we fell asleep on the second night it was pretty much the same thing. But on the third night things changed. He kissed me and I kissed him back and from that moment on we were insepreable he was like my little shadow. And I diet mind anyways we have been dating for a month and a bit now even though it is long distance =( which I wish it wasn't cause it's so hard to be away from him , so in response to most of questions and replys , No it's not wrong to date your cousins, yes it's possible for defects but highly unlikely , and young love is the best live because when you get old you stop believing and that's what love is all about believing you can make it through even the roughest times and Ik he has helped me, and kinda saved me from myself in a way, I would do anything for him and Ik he would do the same. So yes I think dating your cousin is just fine, and I hope more people will grow up and realize that its not "gross" because Darwin dated his cousin and so did instien some of the smartest men in history ... So what does that say ? People are just too stupid to realize that what they love is closer than they think and you can't help when, why or who they fall in love with. So to finally conclude I hope u all enjoyed and learned something =].

well said. wish you the best and would like to get to know you more if youd like and dont mind.

wow! i too am in a cousin relationship for some years now secretly. its crazy how theres so many of us and all different ages. i really wanna commend mexicana292 as shes the 1st i ever heard on these cousin admissions who isnt with a cousin or anything! awesome! keep it up and keep sharing them stories and experiences, it makes others including myself feel better about themselves knowing they aint the only ones :)

My BFF is now dating her cousin (behind their parents' backs...) because one day when they were alone, he kissed her. Then she realized how much she liked him, which she had previously been trying to deny to herself because they were cousins, now she loves him so much she doesn't care anymore.<br />
<br />
My point is, make a move. That's the best way to get her to realize that she likes you back and/ or start a relationship.<br />
<br />
Some people are judgmental about cousin couples (one of our friends is) but most people acknowledge that love is love (I don't see any problem with it, and neither do the other 2 friends my BFF has confided in). Cousin marriage is now legal in most states, and children of cousin couples are no more likely to have any kind of birth defect than children born when their parents are 35 or older.<br />
<br />
And even if things go wrong, since you are cousins you are bound to make up, move on, and stay close in a non-romantic way.<br />
<br />
Good luck! :)

I have been looking for something like this!! My cousin is 26 and so am I we have been in love with each other since we were kids but we were both afraid to admit it!! Till 1 month ago we started texting 24 hours a day. One day I told him wow your like my perfect guy to bad you my cousin he randomly said I know it sucks I really had a crush on you..blah blah blah well yesterday we both admitted we were falling in love with each other we just also worry about the "family" issue we don't want to disappoint them. But we are secretly dating and secretly madly in love!! We talk, text and pretend we are not related I love him he loves me we don't care it's just me and him always!!!

thats the way to go :-)

wow it's very good to know I'm not all alone....my cousin is 24 and I'm 19...it first started when i was over at his and we watched a film on his sofa and i was like wow I dunno what I'm feeling but it felt so natural... I was about 15. then at our cousins birthday we had a drunken kiss, I totally didn't know what to think and I passed it off as a drunken mistake. but I've just seen him again at his brothers wedding and we got drunk and kissed and ended up having sex...it's a 4 day wedding so we kept getting drunk, kissed once more. but during the day he ignored me and on the last night I saw him, we were sober and I tried to kiss him and he moved. I really don't know what to think but I'm starting to think I love him and I really don't know what to do any more. I hate the fact he slept with me and then seemed to near enough blank me.

hey, you're lucky that u went to3rd base withhim, i only ended at first base :( but ninetheless, my cousin is my gf!! well, my situation is similar but I a 20 year old dude and my female cousin is 28. We are currently bf/gf and have been for 2 years officially. What I did was that I brought up the courage to tell her my emotions that i have for her, and she understood. If you want to be with your cousin, just tell him that you love him more than a cousin. If he understands, he would try to calm u down and accept that fact. but for now, be very close to him by doing cute stuff for him like helping him through some personal problems, tell him the truth and if he has those feelings for ya, he would gladly be your bf, if not, he would still love ya, but it wont be the same. Hence, you would have to move on from that point on. don't worry if you cousin ain't your bf right now, if u two were ment to be together, it will happen!!! :-) NOTE: this comment applies who want more from their cousin relationship. may God be with you on your journey in life and bless you all !!!!!

I love these comments. They make me feel so alike all of you! Okay so here is my situation. My family is all very close to each other. My mom has 4 other siblings so I have a lot of cousins. My moms sister has three boys, and one of them (youngest) is about a year older than me. I'm 19 and he's 20, but we are the same age just for a few months. Anyways, Ever since we were little kids we always had so much fun together. And when I was about 15/16 I started to feel these strong feelings for him. When we are at a big family reunion a couple of years ago, we are all eating lunch and I looked over at him and he nodded toward a near by pond. I nodded back saying okay, and we left the rest of the family to be by ourselves. But nothing happened, my brothers joined us. Eliminating any chance. We always have a blast together, he is my best friend. Always makes me laugh, knows my deepest, worst secrets and still doesn't judge me. Ever summer we have this tradition (he lives 5 hours away) where we go to one of our houses (we switch back and forth every summer) and we go to a theme park. Just the two of us. I love it because it gives us so much bonding time. When my other female cousin got married, I danced with him at the wedding. But only because people wanted us to, because I don't show very much how I feel about him. My grandmother has always said (overtime she visits) "If only you two weren't related" It tears me up inside. I love him, very much. I am petrified to tell him, because I do NOT want to ruin this great relationship I have with him now. I'm glad that I know how every one feels too, I'm not the only one.

I understand your situation. I'm a very smart woman and all but i cant stop wanting my so-called cousin. When we were little we used to do things like go places and make out and dry hump. Lol. We got seperated for a long time. I'm talking 10 years and when i seen him again those feelings were still there. We slept together 2. Now i dont know how to feel about us be family. My mom says she dont think he is her cousins son but she doesnt know we like each other. I've never told anyone. My brothers knew about it when we were younger. That was just something we did then, Me and my cousin never my brothers. Now we are both grown and he wants to come to where i am and honestly i want him here. Its confusing because i dont know how to find out if we are really related. Im not in love, Just in like and lust.

i too feel the same, my cousin and i always had this connection and when it was fam reunions i would always see her but never get her name right and now she is about to graduate HS and i Graduate nxt year but i can tell i have feelings for her, we tlk about everything even our sex life and she has hinted at wishing she had a guy like me several times.. idk my fam is very militaristic and i doubt this would sit well with them

I love my cousin too, we're both 15. We've been best friends since 3 years old and i fallen in love with him. I think he feels the same because sometimes i see him staring at me and smiling at me. It sucks though because our family would not let us be together :( I'm to scared to tell him how i feel because he might think it's weird. What should i do?

My cuzin and I are both the sane age and have admitted to liking each other but I have a few problems...when I see him with other girls I grow jealous and tounge tied. I also get sad and my heart literally starts to ach :(<br />
What's wrong with me?!<br />
...am I falling in love with him...?<br />
We've been talking for about 2 years now and have fought and thought about all of this long and hard and he wants to kiss me but he can't be my first kiss because then what am I going to tell my friends when they ask me who my first kiss was!? I don't know how I can get along without him! I'm having trouble thinking or liking anyone else! He is just sooo amazing! x)

I had never known my cousin, I'm canadian, he's american. We met when we were really young. <br />
Recently, I went to visit my Aunt and and my cousin. We got along so well, too well. It seemed like we had known each other for the entirety of our lives. by the third day I was there, we were sleeping in the same bed, gazing into each other's eyes and he gave me hour long foot rubs all the time. I don't know if it was his personality or if he truly felt something for me. But he brought me everywhere with him, I met all his friends, and he was very protective of me. I'd never felt feelings like this before and I took me a long time to finally admit to myself that I was in love with him. Which I absolutely am. We're perfect for each other. Now that i'm home, I've been steadily going down hill without him. Worrying about why he shows little interest in communicating with me.... I have already been trying to arrange another trip to go see my "family" I only long to see him. <br />
I've spent the last two weeks totally beside myself. Sobbing every time I think about the way he held me and all of the close moments we shared. I am scared that he feels the same way I do and that he's afraid of staying close to me because both our hearts will be broken... or maybe he doesn't even love me. Maybe I'm just another relative to him . I will remain devastated until I see him again in 3 months.

wow! it amazes me that there's so many of us in the modern world :) I mean, I'm so glad I stumbled onto this site when I did. EP has helped me cope with a few issues I've been going thru & had. i, too have been wit & am currently wit a 1st cousin, for a lack of better terms. In stories & experiences I've experienced, which I've shared here on EP, feel free & check out & comment & ask questions if you'd like :) but over the years, ive had the pleasure of being asked/approached (my 1st 1st cuz experience) & being the instigator/asker a cousin & being rejected :( the only advice I have is it is/gets complicated & I too seek others' advice when it's avail/offered or if I see something here. but be prepared to deal wit the extreme extreme weirdness that comes when/if the feeling isnt mutual. I was a young teens-aged eager male at the time & was more like lust. but I'll also say is if the feeling is mutual & u do get together, it's the most wonderful kinda love I've thus experienced:) still hiding my/our current affair & is difficult but like the drunks say, I/we just take it a day @ a time :)

well I'm 18 and I think I'm in love with cousin too or obsessed its so weird with him he's 28 yrs old & single, and so there's a ten year difference, he is one of the nicest guys I have ever met I didn't fall in love with the way he looked I fell in love with his heart...well we been tlkn for a more than a year already..literally like everyday he txt messages me or calls me..he lives miles from me he tells me nicest words any guy can say he cares soo much a lot of ppl say its family love, but I feel something different with him like the first time I met him I didn't know he was my cousin so it was like love at first site I felt something for him, well we tlk all the time 24/7 a lot of ppl say our whole life revolves around each other I haven't had the courage to tell the way I truly feel I'm too scared I might lose his friendship or whatever you want to call it...& lk I cry if we get mad at each other or sometimes if he tlks about a girl my stomach starts turning idk what to do..today when he txt me I didn't txt him back because I feel like I'm just hurting myself and just gonna end up with a broken heart I believe in God and I always prays asking Y is this happening to me and for him to send me a sign, but ntn ever happens! I need HELP!! This is just getting too crazzzzyy!!

I love my cousin to!! Im 15 and I'm a girl so I just notice dat my cousin likes me.when I was under 12 my cousin didn't even talk or look at me when I turn 13 he started talking to me just like hi how are u but den I didnt see him cuz he got this girl pregnant when I turn 14 he came with his baby when we were alone he told me I was pretty n have a cute smile n he gave me a nick name after dat I saw him like twice a week he would always ask if I had a bf n I told I did n dat we been going out for year n he's like oh damn he's so cute den I stopped seeing with for 2 months den one I went to house I was sad cuz I just broken up with my bf n I told my cousin n he just to make me laugh but den he asked me if I had sex already n I'm no I felt so awkward so left da next time I saw him he was acting different my cousin told me dat he's has a crush he's always smiling at me when he sees me I do to n feel something in my stomach n I always think of him idk if I should tell i think he already knows cuz I get so jealous when I see him other girl so should I?

well, my situation is similar but I a 20 year old dude and my female cousin is 28. We are currently bf/gf and have been for 2 years officially. What I did was that I brought up the courage to tell her my emotions that i have for her, and she understood. If you want to be with your cousin, just tell him that you love him more than a cousin. If he understands, he would try to calm u down and accept that fact. but for now, be very close to him by doing cute stuff for him like helping him through some personal problems, that wy he garners some emotions for you, and once you are at lest 17, tell him the truth and if he has those feelings for ya, he would gladly be your bf, if not, he would still love ya, but it wont be the same. Hence, you would have to move on from that point on. don't worry if you cousin ain't your bf right now, if u two were ment to be together, it will happen!!! :-) NOTE: this comment applies who want more from their cousin relationship. may God be with you on your journey in life and bless you all !!!!!

and BTW, my cousin is divorced, so hence she hooked up with me.

I recently moved to Mexico to study cosmetology and I started hanging out my cousin. In Mexico it is customary to greet family and friends with a kiss on the cheek and whenever my cousin would kiss me on the cheek, I´d get butterflies in my stomach. We hang out non stop. One day I went to his house and we were laying in bed watching TV, I punched him jokingly and he started tickling me, and then it turned into a pillow fight, finally we relaxed and I put my head on his chest. I figured all of this was just family love, but then the next day I came over and again we were in bed watching TV, and cuddling, he told me he was going to kiss me on the cheek and then before I knew it out of pure instinct and gut logic, I kissed him on the mouth. We made out the whole time after that. We decided to keep all of this just between us, our little secret. The only problem is I wear my heart on my sleeve and my grandma I think suspects something weird is going on. I´m going to have to be more discreet!

just be open about it, if u two love each other, don't hide it!!!

I was drinking with my cousin when I´ve turned 16 years old (he 20) back in 2004, & at the time goes by we suddenly kissed & had sex. The situation was akward in the first time. But the sex were so hot that we´ve had kept having sex in the next 4 years. In meanwhile we became best-friends & we were together all the time & at last we fell in love very deeply. We didn´t know what to do, we were holding eachother & going romance when his parents went to sleep. At last we couldn´t hold on to keep this huge romantic secret, so I told my mom & dad, & they supported me wholeheartly. He also told to his parents also, his mother was supportive but his father (my uncle. LoL) just hated it, but I just ignored him & just teased him to humiliate him. My cousin & I were together as couples in three years, we were living in paradise. But now we are not together anymore, he have some psychotic problems & he´s on pills. So if you two cousins are really seriously in love with eachother, don´t hold on to it as a secret, tell the world that you love eachother. Nobody can never destroy love. Good luck!

amen, i did the same (kissing, but no sex as of yet) and she has been my gf for 2 years officially!!!:-D I love her with all my heart and have so ever since i was 4!!!! she is 28, I'm 20.

so glad I'm not alone! except there's 13 years difference between me and my cousin. he's 27 in march and I'm 14 in April. he doesn't have a girlfriend which is good for me. But he has had a rough past the last few months because of girlfriends. He also lives in a different state and i miss him so much! he said he is going to come over to stay with us for a while but I'm just hanging out to know when he is coming over! i don't know whether to tell him that i like him because he is so much older! please help me! thanks (:

i am also in love with my cousin, i am 23 and she is 20, i first met her when she moved to here from the philippines. she was 15. the moment i saw her i fell in love. i think she felt the same way. every time i sat down on the couch she would sit next to me and lay her head on my shoulder. i felt like i was in heaven.<br />
<br />
i would always give in to her. would have married he if i had the chance

Wow its really nice to know that i'm not the only one in this predicament. My situation is is pretty much the same as everyone else. well i'm 17 and shes 15 i told her i love her but idk if she feels the same way. she acts like it but then again shes kinda young. shes never had a boyfriend or sex THANK GOD!!!! and she always says she loves me but i don't know if she means like a cousin or like a relationship. she took my ipod and put her picture as my wallpaper and i told her that i don't want my friends hitting on her and she told me to tell them that shes my girl!!! She always tells me that i look good i do the same. Should i tell her how i feel?

A am also inlove with my own cousin. This one time when he introduced his gf to me I felt a heart break and itt made me sad. I can't tell him that I love him cause i'm too shy and too scared of rejection. Idk what to do :( but I'm inlove with him he's been nice and sweet to me and to our other cousins<< that makes me jealous even though their just my cousin but it sucks when I see him happy with a girl it just crush my heart in tiny pieces lol but yeah I really want him to now but i'm scared and plus we have the same age :D

I want you all to know that you guys are AWESOME!!! Yes, I also love my cousin and it feels great that there our people out there that feel the same way.. Thank you. Lets be free.

So glad to find this little niche on cyberspace! It made me feel so much better to read all of your comments for I am in the same sinking boat.<br />
<br />
I find myself being extremely attracted one of my first cousins. She is a lot younger than me though... which definitely makes matters worse. I'm 21 and she is only 14, but she is SO mature, physically and well as mentally... when I look into her eyes I see an equal. We have so many of the same interests and hobbies it's a little frightening. After seeing her, when her memory is still fresh in my mind, I just can't stop thinking about her. I also feel like she is the most sexually compatible girl I've EVER met...<br />
<br />
Predictably, all of this creates a lot of internal conflict for me because I feel like it's wrong but I can't help feeling the way I do about her. She seems to feel similarly, often touching me (or biting me) or lying on me... and her eyes! oh man... the torture... she goes through a lot of boyfriends though, which frustrates me and I admit... makes me jealous. I don't know how much pain I can tolerate... when she starts having more serious boyfriends... and eventually getting married. I plan to tell her how I feel someday, when she is much older (probably around 18) ... if I still feel the same way about her that is. Personally, I'm not opposed to having a more serious relationship with her if she feels the same and if the opportunity arises, for the reasons mentioned by the folks who previously posted. It would be tragic if we both really loved each other but decided not to be together.

I to have the same feeling for my cousin (well he's my 2nd cousin). My story is alot like the others. And our family will have a coneption. In a way I think I should just avoid this but it's just not that easy. I have a 2 year old and still with his daddy however, the only person I think about is him, If im not talking to him im sad. Well texting that is...... Is it that big of deal with him being my second cousin...<br />
I dont even know where these feelings came from they just came out of the blue never happen to me before nothing has ever struck me in the face this bad. so fast...... What do I do I know that it is wrong. Way wrong and theres no way no time soon I could tell my family..,..,.,.,..,.,. But I don;t want it to be late ethier. But he isnt ready to tell anyone ethier. YET!!!!!

WOW! I didn't realize so many people were in this same situation! Mine is alot like lover18 I hadn't met my cousin before about a year ago and when we finally started talking it was just a very different feeling than I thought I should have towards him. Eventually we both admitted to what we were feeling and it went from there. I'm very happy with him, and I fully intend to be with him. I'm 20 and he's 22, and right now we live in different states and we're both afraid of what our families will say because of their hmm. 'fued' and because of the fact that we are first cousins! I think that if you have these feelings towards them you should be very careful about how you bring it up, but I think that your feelings are always worth being explored because you could miss out on something very wonderful. BUT, being too young may hurt this relationship, don't come out with it to your family right away because once it's out it's out, and if you eventually don't feel the same way then they'll hold it against you. <br />
<br />
I do also wonder if anyone has told their families about being with their cousin? If so, how did they react and did they get over it and accept it? If it weren't for that aspect I'd be alot happier. I will in time tell them, I just don't know how? Advice?<br />
Thanks.

I will tell you, I have been in your very situation still am. I was in love with him but never told him and he never told me. Now 19 years later after we have had our spouses and children we have decided to tell each other and I am so happy we did. I will say we have loved each other for a very long time, and never told each other but here we are together in love and I say if you feel go with it. We now wish we would have told each other all those years ago, but at least we did now.

I love my cousin too, she is 21 and I am 27 , I adore her and she gives me signs that she loves me too, but we never confessed it yet.<br />
<br />
we live away from each other , she just left two days ago, it feels like 2 years.<br />
And I haven't stopped thinking of her ever-since.<br />
<br />
My little precious angel , I love her so.

i'm in this exact same boat. except...the age difference with me is so much worse.<br />
he's 13 and i'm... 18. he's my 2nd cousin and is my uncle's son's son hahaha.<br />
he acts so much more older and he's so beautiful. seriously, whenever he comes over i can't stop looking at him. and his eyes! oh god, they're the most amazing shade of blue. <br />
i'm not sure if he likes me too, but we flirt all the time! although, i'm not really sexually attracted to him. but he is sexy.<br />
he just came over his passed week and spent the night in a tent with me. we stayed up all night talking about the most random things. he even took his shirt off and shared my pillow with me. and i dunno if this proves he likes me too but he just randomly said "i love when a girl sleeps in my arms, i just love holding them. it feels amazing." it made my tummy flutter, and i was hoping he wanted me like i wanted him. but i think i'm just getting my hopes up. he even let me play with his hair while he fell asleep.<br />
i cannot tell him or anyone about this at all. i'll feel like a terrible person.<br />
i just wish he felt the same way as me. but then again i don't, because i wouldn't want to hide our relationship.

That story is really exciting as is the other females in this posting..

i thought i was alone ! i am 14 & he is 17 , the only difference is that we are step cousins & yet our parents still disapprove . well , despite the fact that nobody approves . we have been " dating " and secretly seeing each other . i just wonder if it is wrong for me to love him ? my mother says that since he just got out of a long relationship , he is just on the rebound & all of his feelings that he had for his ex girlfriend will be unintentionally thrown towards me . i dont know what to believe . he has proven his love to me , by doing whatever it takes to make me happy & feel loved . i just need someone to talk to . i feel so alone .

I like my cousin also! He is 4 years older than me (he's 18, im 14) and he's not even my first cousin! What should I do? All my friends seem to disapprove but my mom don't and I have no idea how he feels. HELP???!!!

I'm 27 and I live with my cousin, she is 28, and I'm pretty sure I love her, I'm so scared to tell her in fear that she will not feel the same and it would get awkward. I've listed for her and generally just melt sometimes. I've been in love but it's never felt like this. We shared a long gaze the other night and it almost made me speechless, I just got lost in her beautiful eyes. We have alwAys gotten along very well, really well sometimes it's like she reads my mind And says what I wAs going to say. I could really go on and on. The only thing we never talk about is sex, and I don't know how to interpret that?

you're just going to have to try and move on. Just bearing in mind that not everyone out there is like her. Clearly she's appealing as we tend to base what we deem 'good looking' around certain family members... but you'll just regret it because there will always be resentment and you could end up damaging her more if you persist this. I would advise you to talk to her and become friends. Cousins are nice because they're kind of like 'instant friends' but they're still family; and they care about you like a family... Ok, clearly, you went a bit far with the foot rub... but leave it at that PLEASE. Luckily you're young enough to not get too caught up...but trust me down the line you'll just regret it... So, as hard as it seems just be friends.

im in love with my first couzin too. since i was little but i always thought that it was just family love and i thought it was something else i tried to convince myself it was that situation but everytime i saw him the love grew a bit bigger. i never told him or anything but i always had a feeling he feels something about me too. we are the same age he is older that me by two weeks. last time we saw each other we made out every two seconds.lol. i gess he was trying to get farther with me cuz he touched me over my pants and it was ok but then he tried taking off my pants. i knew we are couzins and we shouldnt do anything so i stopped it even though we kept making out. i dont know if he really feels something or he was just horny. that was a week ago. i keep replaying those moments in my head and i cant stop thinking about it or him and i wonder every second what could have happend if i didint stop him. i want to ask him how he feels about me but something always stops me.

I have a similar story. Like I said in another post, I've liked my cousin (he's 11 years older than me, I'm 17, he's 28) since I was about 8. I didn't realize what my feelings meant til recently. But now every time I see him, it just gets more and more apparent to me. I'm so hopelessly in love with him. I don't know if it'll ever go away...

if you dont mind can you check my story out if u have time

Type your comment here...kkia well its not wrong to fall in love with ur cousin trust me i know im in love with my cousin she is 8 years older then me but i love her like my feelings for her are amazing she also feels the same way bout me we both love each other and we both want to be with each other like i really wanna kiss her hold tell her i love her tell her i miss her i even want to sleep with my cousin i was reading storys bout this and there is nothing wrong with be in love with ur cousin my cousin has a kid and i alreadly feel though as her is kid is mine and people may think this is wierd but there is nothing wrong with it and im planning on moving in with my cousin

i also hve the sae problem plz god help me

mannn

im in the same situation but different,i never met my cousin before this year and when i did was immedietly attracted to him,we tried to act like nothing was going on but we both knew that we had feelings for eachother we tried to hide it but one day it just came out and we started talking more and hanging out more things escalated into so much more after that,we started dating and having sex,and are happily in love at first it was hard for us having to hide everything but after a wile we started not to care what anyone thought we told our family and everyone accepted us,as long as we are happy thats all that matters yea it bothers them but you cant help how you feel about someone hes 26 and im 18

im having the same problem...im 16 and he is 22 and i know my love for him is real because im a girl that well had always been in a lot of hard situations in life so i know im mature enough to know when something is real ( he is my 1st cousin) i think he feels the same way about me i love him so much i would do anything to make him happy even accept that he would marry some other girl because i want him to be happy but still i know hes mine i know im his happines we are very different but we both had suffer a lot in life and the only problem with us is that i need to wait to become 18 so we could figure out what to do because im so scared to tell my mother and his mother ( they both are very close) but my love for him s the most pure and beutifull thing in my world... SO MY IDEA FOR U IS TO TALK TO HER TELL HER HOW YOU FEEL AND PLEASE WAIT UNTIL YOU BOTH ARE MATURE ENOUGH TO KNOW HOW TO HANDLE IT (LIKE WHAT IM GOING TO DO) ! I DONT KNOW YOU BUT I THINK YOU ARE THE ONE TO MAKE THE FIRST STEP BUT TELL HER THAT IF SHE DOESNT FEEL THE SAME WAY YOU ARE OK WITH THAT ! BUT IF SHE FEELS THE SAME MAKE IT HAPPEN!!!!! BUT REMEMBER! WAIT!!!!!!!!!!!!

i am loving my cousine alot...
i am now in age 18 and he is in age 26
i can do anything to make him happy
i want his happyness only
if he loves other girl i will help him to marrie her
but i can feel still he is mine
i want to tell him about my feelings on him
he is really sweet and cute not looking attractive
our age has so much diffrence but i dont mind that
i wish he also have the same feeling on me like i have on him
{i love you sweet heart
please be mine}i want to propose him like that
i wish he will agreed for my proposal
but unfartunatly he is no more...i mean he is dead in one incident
but i still loving him
and i will go closer to him
now i am crying...

My situation is similar to yours, yet different. I didn't lust after my cousin, but she ended up making a pass at me, before I realized how amazing it was to be with her. So my advice is, be absolutely positive that she'll say yes, otherwise you'll run the risk of messing up your relationship for good.

I love my first cousin. I was depressed and he made me tell him. At first he said we couldn't be together but now we kiss and do things. He's 20 and I am 16, age doesn't matter to us. If you really think you love her, you should tell her. Over all I am glad I told my cousin, even though we have to keep everything a secret. I wish you good luck with your choice.

btw, he is seventeen and i am eighteen (just turned eighteen in september)...lol. not that much of an age difference, but the family problem is the biggest issue...u guys know...lol.
