    Sorry if I’m confused enough to not to pay attention to the language I use…

    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.

    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.

    So maybe deep down I might be the one having feelings for him?? That’d be gross!

    Yes, honestly that’s exactly what it’s sounded like this whole time.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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…
