Should I tell my second cousin that I love him?

Tagged as: Family<< Previous question   Next question >>
Question - (20 February 2008) 2 Answers - (Newest, 20 February 2008)
A female United States age 26-29, anonymous writes:

I have a small problem. I know this great guy, and I see him every summer because we live in different states. I began to have feelings for him 2 years ago but brushed it off as nothing. But then I saw a year later and I fell for him, hard. I can't stop thinking about him. He's one year older than me, am 15 and he's 16, and we have a lot in common. The thing is, is that he's my cousin. My second cousin actually. I'm not sure if I should tell him or not, because it's killing me and eating away at me. I actually cried because I thought I would never see him again (family thing)! And I have never cried over any guy before. I know I'm young, but I also know I've never felt this way before. I've only had small crushes before, but this is so much bigger. He could reject me, and even if he doesn't my family might. So I need to know if I should tell him or not? Please help me. Thank you.

A female reader, anonymous, writes (20 February 2008):

To Laura1318:

I do keep my mind on other things, but my mind always wonders back to the thought of him. I don't believe in Diaries or anything because they don't work, my hand cramps, and people steal them, mostly my mom and sister. I may grow out of it, but I just don't know. I've never felt this way before.

But just because he's my cousin doesn't mean that it isn't love, right? He could love me back for all I know, but he also may not. But I'm not going to forget about him, I just can't. If you have different advice, I'll be happy to hear/read it. But I can't forget about him.

Laura1318 agony auntIt is just a phase in your life. You will grow out of it.Better to keep those thoughts to yourself or write them into your diary or journals.

Keep your mind focus on other things and you will soon forget about him.
