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?

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!!

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 (:

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.

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.

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.

i am having trouble too! I really really like my cousin (he's my second cousin on my dads side). Our families are really close, and we work together at the same store. So, we see each other almost every night. I think my family know i really like him...and his may know too. We are both supposed to go on a trip with his school to england ireland and scotland soon, but my mom said she thinks his parents wont let him go because we will be "alone" for eleven days together. ??? what do i say to this? i don't even know if he likes me? he always gives me huge hugs and pretended to "make out" with me in front of our other cousin. ? (no he didn't kiss me, but he hugged me so close that it looked like from my other cousins perspective, that he was kissing me...) they just laughed...but i was kinda awestruck...lol. What do i do? yikes. ....i dont even really agree with liking ur own cousin,,but i have such strong emotions for him...not just his looks either. lol.

i love my cousin . when i used to say that when i was younger (im 16 now) it used to mean family love . but now , it means so much more . i love her so much (im a male) and i constanltly wonder if she feels the same way about me as well . she's 15 (16 tomorrow) so there's no age difference as a problem . she's really great and all . i'm with her all the time and i talk to her all the time . she has a boyfriend though . she says she loves him a lot . they've been dating for a year and a couple of months or so . i just need advice as to what should i do . someone , anyone , please . . help me ? greatly appreciated .

hello(:<br />
i also love my cousin :S<br />
he's 21, and im 16.<br />
i few weeks ago we were both drinking, and we slept in the same bed and ended up having sex :S<br />
i wanted to, so badly. but we both knew it was wrong.<br />
then last weekend, he took me outside and he told me he was sorry, then admitted he loved me too(:<br />
it made me so happy, and everytime he kissed me it was amazing. but then later in the night after our 4 hours of talking. he told me we couldnt do anything, because it will only get harder for us both. this cut me up real bad): i want to be with him so badly, but its not right, we have our families we need to think about. <br />
my guess is, if you catch her looking at you...she feels the same way. my cousin told me everytime he looked at me, and i caught him he knew he wanted me more. and i think he guessed i wanted him too. i want to say follow your heart, because that feels like the best thing to do. but really, you should ignore your feelings, youre still young. try and avoid her for a while, and the feelings will eventually fade. and one important thing to remember, sex isnt the answer lol, it just makes things a million times harder.<br />

Hey so I'm in a similar situation... I fell in love with my cousin (he was 29 at the time...) last summer (2010). We ended up getting together last January and I lost my virginity to him in February (I'm not a **** tho, we'd been talking for like 8 months). And we dated for like 6 months after that, but in September he died in a car accident. I'm finally starting to get over it, but what's even worse is that I liked his brother when I was younger and I'm just now realizing that I never stopped liking him. I'm in love with him too for sure. I just didn't realize how strong it was until now, cuz this past weekend we spent together because our families went to Mohegan Sun to see his other brother do comedy. We spent so much time together and he even laid on my bed with me when we were watching tv and I wanted so badly to do something but he knows about me and his brother, so I couldn't. I'm pretty sure he doesn't feel the same way (meaning attracted at all) and even if he did, he would never act on his feelings like his brother did. Someone please help me!

The one I'm in love with now is 28 btw...

i wrote this same comment to somone a bit ago....i saw their were others with a story kind of the same....so i thought id post it on yours too....i have never been in your situation (in love with a cousin) but i do have an opinion on the matter.<br />
<br />
well first of all, some of you guys all seem pretty young. im NOT saying that the love is NOT real. because love at your age is very real...but it usually doesnt tend to last.<br />
<br />
with that said, i have never been in your situation. BUT i honestly dont see anything wrong with falling in love and marrying your cousin. 26 states allow first cousin marriages; Most people are able to marry their cousin in the US. <br />
<br />
we all probably decend from cousins if you look far enough back. and the big hype about children having birth defects because of cousins (even first cousins) having a baby together are NOT TRUE, they are blown WAAY out of whack. ask any doctor. the truth is...if you have a child within your same RACE you have a higher chance of having a child with a birth defect. (so should we not marry within our own race) the average person has a 2-3 percent chance on having a baby with a birth defect. and first cousins have a 3-6 percent chance (or somthing like that) which BOTH are extremley rare and would be a freak "chance". (second cousins may not have any increase at all...)<br />
<br />
i read also that 20 percent of the worlds population are married to their cousins. and in lots of cultures this is extremley common and somtimes encouraged. (back in the day it was encouraged too.)<br />
<br />
another little fun fact is that Albert Einstein married his first cousin. And so did Charles Darwin, who had exceptional children. <br />
<br />
also, Franklin D. Roosevelt, the longest serving US president in history married his cousin, it wasnt his first cousin...but they had the same last name.<br />
<br />
The first Prime Minister of Canada, Sir John A. MacDonald married his first cousin too! <br />
<br />
im not sure what i think of the bible but if you are a christain.....Leviticus 18 lists all "forbidden" sexual relationships. (Cousin relationships are not included) ACTUALLY, god commanded cousins to marry at times. <br />
<br />
so, really....theres nothing technically WRONG with falling in love with or marring your cousin. BUT i would suggest that you dont get involved too young (with ANYONE cousin or not) but especailly your cousin (if your family disapproves) i would make sure you are older and KNOW its what you want and its somthing you want to possibley risk "rattling the families cage" for. hehe but if you DO decide to come clean about it...maybe go online and look up some of these facts and or go get a book on it and show it to your family members. its ONLY considered "wrong" here because of how our society is.....NOT because it is actually wrong.<br />
<br />
<br />
<br />
i hope things work out!!
