There's something that has been bothering me for quite a while and i wanted to share it here. I have a friend who's quite close to me and we go way back. He once told me about a cousin of his whom he said he likes very much. Initially, i thought it was just the normal family thing. Recently though, he's been talking so much about this cousin of his, that i began to suspect something else.
At a point i decided to 'confront' him about the issue and he opened up to me that he's 'noticed' that his feelings has always been much more than what he thought. Although he didn't exactly say it, but i believe he's really in love with her. Before anyone starts condemning or commending him or his feelings, let me explain something.
This cousin of his is actually what some people will want to call 'Step cousin'. I don't know if such a word exists though. Anyway, the girl in question is a daughter to his mum's step-sister. His mum and the aunt share the same mum, but different fathers. I guess we can all do the 'calculation' lol.
Personally, i've tried talking to a few of our friends, but most of them think that there's nothing really wrong with it. I decided to bring up the issue in here since there'll be diverse opinions and hopefully, mature comments. There's one more thing though, the girl doesn't know or suspects anything, so they haven't done anything.
