'I've fallen in love with my cousin'
Dear Diana, I'm a 17-year-old student and I'm preparing for the HSC exams as well as the engineering entrance exams.
I think I’m in love with my cousin. She’s 16, cute, funny and attractive. We mostly text each other. Last Sunday she visited our place and I almost got myself to express my affection for her but stopped at the final moment. Now that she’s gone, I’m regretting whether I should have gone ahead with my impulse. I am missing her badly. I can’t even concentrate on my studies anymore. I don’t know what to do.
You have two major exams coming up so why are you diverting our mind on all this? If you are keen to secure admission in a professional college, your marks matter in the entrance tests. Also remember in some communities, marriages between cousins are forbidden. So remember this aspect before you let your heart go aflutter. Moreover you don’t even know if she care for you or not.
Diana will solve it!
