My best friend is dating my cousin
He moved two hours away the following June and that's when I officially lost hope for our potential relationship. One of my closest cousins and I stopped getting along because of some lies she told some of our family members about me, along with a few other issues involving my brother.
Now, we still continued to call each other and flirt over texts and he still made time to come and visit me every now and then but somehow, it just wasn't the same. She was a drama queen and constantly looked for ways to get attention from everyone.

We never began dating again though, no matter how many times he thought we should or asked if we could. Writing about how you feel could be a useful outlet, remembering these very strong feelings may subside as you get used to the situation.If you’ve a friend or family member who you can trust to share your concerns in confidence this may be useful, although you’ll want to avoid this escalating into a family drama. They don't care who they step on or who they hurt along the way. You can try all you want to get back at me for moving on and you can do whatever you please to try to hurt me. I've never said this but now, I will forever regret loving you and dating you. How am I supposed to respond when my family gets re-introduced to him, then looks at me puzzled? If you were once close with a family member and you decide it's okay to date their ex, without any explanation or apology, might I add, you're wrong. I've learned the hard way that both John and my cousin are only looking out for their best interest.
