I have a dilemma and I need to advise, my cousin wants to have sex with me and before we take our relationship to the next level, because of niggling doubts I hope that I can share my story free of judgement here on Emmas blog.
I am 17 but when I was 15 I started secretly dating my cousin, we are not very close as in family, our families don’t speak to each other so we hardly get together in the family sense. He is 2 years older than me and it started after we began hanging around with the same group of friends.
We were not brought up together and we didn’t even meet until I was 14, when he and his mum, my mother’s sister moved to our area. I wouldn’t have even known he was my cousin had my mother not pointed him out in the shopping centre one day.
Is it wrong that my cousin wants to have sex with me
We had the same friends and we began spending a lot of time together just hanging out and going bowling etc. We were at a party when we began flirting and one thing led to another and we kissed. We have secretly dating on and off for 2 years now.
I dare not tell my mother, I don’t know how she would react about me dating a family member, but I think because she hates his mother, her own sister so much that will make her hate him.
Is it so wrong to date your cousin?
As I have said we have dated for almost 2 years now and we have talked about taking our relationship to the next stage, my cousin wants to have sex with me and as much as I have fallen in love with him, a part of me feels it’s wrong because we are related.
I don’t want to tell him this and he is definitely not pressurising me or anything like that but I know if we can’t move onto the next stage, the relationship would be over. Can I get over the feeling that it’s wrong to do?
Is it so wrong that my cousin wants to have sex with me when he sees me as his girlfriend not a family member?
Can you offer me your honest advice?
