  1. Ugh I’m sorry about how selfish that post sounded. I’m just enthusiastically supporting cousin relationships this morning and your story was especially personally interesting to me. I am so sorry to not have any advice about your situation. I wouldn’t even know where to begin compared to mine, cause I would be trying to marry a male (as F) from a culture that looks down on blood relatives. With your use of ‘we’ in your op, referring to doing research, it sounds like you cohabitate or at least get enough private time to have gratitude for rejoice together that you are facing the sa
  2. Love to you two. My best gf from Catholic k-12 girls school is transitioning to Male. i have no advice. Just that we bicker about which one of us is ‘weirder’, all in good humour. (He being one of the people I confided in about my feelings about my first male cousin, me F, and +2y to my cousin) as a new member to this forum I’ll just say good luck. I’d love to have an ear about how to ask FtM questions I have. So far I’ve just asked directly but I’d like to understand lingo and protocol better and don’t know how to extend a hi feel free to pm me kinda sentiment. It’s not
  3. I’ll also add that I don’t like that you are coming into this situation from relationships that you wanted “so desperately” to work. Its very important to ‘let’ men put a lot of effort into a serious/LtR, cousin or not. I am not calling you desperate the way you called yourself inadvertently...rather, consider that you are depriving them of all of those problem solving strategy thingies they like so much. Men are awesome and can sometimes come up with just as good solutions or overcome challenges like we can. Esp in this day and age I think they really need to have that g
  4. I’m in the same boat age and gender wise with my first cousin, and even tho I can imagine us together I fully back off... (I’ve been involved w another man for 10y now engaged) I want to be more of a ‘big cousin’ in his life forever than a romantic option because of his culture and obv my own commitments. i came to seek my own advice cause I sporadically touch or manhandle him in a very g rated way that already makes me feel guilty ? in front of his mum who I’m most scared of. Carryover from childhood... If he’s weirded out by elevating the relationship I would suggest ge
  5. You are pregnant. Feel free to be as scared AF as any other woman on the planet. Here are my steps in terms of a gentle self shake: 1. You are a Mother. Even if it’s just a line on a stick from a drugstore, you have the potential to be a Mother 2. Your cousin/ the father sounds useless at the moment. He might just be panicking. He might be using the cousin thing to panic. He is kind of useless until he can talk sense (no offense to men but sometimes y’all have a lot more to say than you really will) 3. You are The mother and in the most control of this. By all means submi
  6. This won’t have much substance other than to thank the regular posters and mods for making me feel at home with your intelligence, ultra grammerz, and thoughtfulness that I see throughout each post I have read. Im a girl with a lifelong puppy crush on a 2y younger male cousin. It has recently turned into something that occupies my mind more frequently, as we have increased personal contact over the summer due to a few family nights out. (500 mile geographical issue in the USA, been home frequently for my mother’s recent health probs ) We are both in our 30s and I am engaged to
