How to approach it?

Recommended Posts

Guest Jazz

For many, many years, there's been an obvious attraction between myself and my cousin, overtly stated and not. There's several reasons that we couldn't be able to have a visible relationship right now, if ever. And I can tell that although she doesn't necessarily want to agree with it, she buys into the stigma that it's wrong or gross. And likely feels guilty for it.

So the question, how would it be best to approach her about it? I'm specifically hopeful to hear from others that have pursued relationships with their cousins in adulthood.

Ask her point blank how she would feel, then have a direct conversation with her about it.  Arm yourself with facts (lots of resources on this site) and point her here if you want.  The only way to eradicate the stigma is to normalize it.  If she is open minded she will listen to facts and reason.

My cousin and I had an attraction for many years but didn't pursue it until we were in our 40's.  You'll find lots of stories here about cousins would waited many years to pursue a serious relationship.
