Sorry if I’m confused enough to not to pay attention to the language I use…February 13, 2020 at 5:22 pm #875167CopaParticipant
Right, but my point is that most people, when confronted with behavior toward them that they find odd or inappropriate (e.g., a cousin sending mixed signals, a roommate’s dad whose hugs go on too long), they don’t care if they’re overreacting. They find ways to avoid being in that awkward and uncomfortable situation. They don’t await it eagerly to see if it happens again.
But to answer your original question, yes, based on what you described, you are overreacting to think there is something in the air between you two and he does not appear to be sending you mixed signals.February 13, 2020 at 5:33 pm #875169FYIGuest
You’re super defensive, LW, and keep blocking the feedback people are giving you. Guess you didn’t really want advice. You just wanted us to get excited for you.February 13, 2020 at 5:35 pm #875170AllyGuest
So maybe deep down I might be the one having feelings for him?? That’d be gross!February 13, 2020 at 5:37 pm #875171KateKeymaster
Yes, honestly that’s exactly what it’s sounded like this whole time.February 13, 2020 at 5:41 pm #875172PDX816Guest
FYI – I am picking up on the same thing, which is why I think at least part of this letter is fake or LW is a troll.February 13, 2020 at 5:44 pm #875174AllyGuest
Omg what’s wrong with me? I definitely need to go to therapy…February 13, 2020 at 5:46 pm #875175MaltaKanoGuest
I read recently that incest erotica is a big seller on the internet. Maybe this is someone trying out their writing skills?
LW, if real, this is 100% in your head. The clue that really tells me this is that you’re imagining some conspiracy where multiple relatives are suggesting you have sex with your cousin. Sometimes people do want to have sex with their cousins, but it wouldn’t look like stolen glances, dramatic entrances, almost-kisses. People are questioning the veracity of the letter because it reads like a bad romance novel.February 13, 2020 at 5:53 pm #875176AllyGuest
Who was talking about sex? Please, I would never, ever.
‘…but it wouldn’t look like stolen glances, dramatic entrances, almost-kisses’. Then how would it look like? 😀 You made me curious here.February 13, 2020 at 6:01 pm #875177AngeGuest
There are many informative websites you’re free to visit on your own time that would fill you in. Just let them know you’re over 18.February 14, 2020 at 2:49 am #875190BittergaymarkGuest
Your cousin’s behavior is mildly unusual. MILDLY. Your reaction to it however is FULL BLOWN BIZARRE. All your posts read as if you are simply just DYING for this forbidden love affair to be true or something. Oh please have him enter with excitement…
No, seriously. That’s how it reads in your very own words…
