i'm trying to solve a problem that I've been having in my life, but i can't do it without some advice. i'm very attracted to my step-cousin who is the same age as me. she's been in the family for around 5-6 years and at first i just thought she was really pretty, but as i've gotten older and gotten to know her better, i've liked her even more. she's got the same taste in music as me, she has a great sense of humour and she's just gorgeous. SO MUCH IN COMMON! but we're step-cousins and even though it isn't illegal (apparently) to marry step-cousins, the idea is against my principles. i just want to stop thinking about her like this, because it becomes more and more awkward to talk to her with each passing day! so what should i do? talk to her about it? talk to my family? see a counselor? someone help...

Yeah, you're alone here.
Your sympaticos in Appalachia and Arkansas can't read and comprehend your original soliloquoy.

So leave it to an intelligent guy from Cali.

If it ain't going anywhere because of your principles, then move on and save both of you some grief.
If you can get past your "principles", then realize you aren't blood relatives and if you've found your soul mate, then ask her out to lunch and see where it goes.

Life is short, don't lose opportunity.

Now excuse me while I get back to saving the world. The last five years this job has gotten tougher.
Peace.

Either you want him or you don't want to ruin anything. Decide which is more important and go for it!
If you're not blood related there really shouldn't be anything holding you back unless you think he will reject you and cut you off.

And also, he makes a big deal about how we're 'cousins' but I always say 'step-cousin;)' as a joke and he writes 'haha;)' what does this mean?

I cant help but think you're a troll who makes this up.

I keep seeing threads like this. You are probably the same person posting all of them. I mean, who else would do it?

In the same situation in my life, we both feel the same way and we love each other wholey and truly.. but her mother hates the thought of it, weve felt this way ever since we met each other almost 10 years ago, and ofcourse because we couldnt be together we found other loves...and now im 19 and shes 18 and im single but shes in a relationship... but the other day we spent together and in the end we ended up kissing passionately for 10 minutes

I think you are making a problem out of what should not be a problem.
If you are not related by blood forget any 'familial issues'.
If you love this person go after her. Disregard what others think.
Nothing sadder than if in your old age you look back with regrets.
The heart will have what it wants.
Good luck buddy?

I'm in the same situation but me and step cousin both like each other. We don't think that our families will accept us being together. Any help? I want to tell my trusted family at least I just don't know how to approach them.

You sound ridiculous! How about it's just real life issues many ppl have experienced and seek advice because They're uncomfortable with this feeling and topic. If you have nothing positive to contribute, be quiet! Do the world a favor....

I have the same problem. It started when I first saw them after entering the family, but it was just a very mild attraction of no significance then. 9 years later it is turning into a real problem. I am trying to get rid of my feelings because I doubt he likes me back, plus I can't imagine telling my family that I like my step cousin. But last time I was tslking oi him, I looked into his eyes and just spent a minute staring while talking semi-coherently. So if for you it is becoming the way it is for me, and you think you have even a small chance, go for it.
