Having a crush on your cousin is not horrible and it doesn't make you weird, it's actually pretty normal.

If you have a crush on your cousin, it's okay.

I have some tips and things that you can do that will explain your feelings a little more.

It's normal to have a crush and to start to feel things for people that you are around a lot.

Remember that!

1. Age

How old were you when you started to get a crush on your cousin?

This actually could have a lot to do with developing your crush.

To be honest, if you are just developing feelings for the opposite (or same sex), they can develop about someone that you are close to.

It's normal, but that doesn't mean that you need to act on it.

2. Understand It is Normal

Understanding that these feelings might not be love and might not even be a true, real crush is very, very important.

I know it might feel like you are in love with your cousin and that they are your dream boyfriend or girlfriend, but it might all boil down to how old you are and if you are going through hormone changes.

3. Don't Act on It

When you have a crush on your cousin, you don't want to act on these feelings.

This is your family and acting on these feelings could cause a lot of confusion and could cause a lot of controversy.

While I know it might be a little hard in the beginning, you've got to resist acting on your feelings.

4. Seek Alternative People to Crush on

I know it might be hard to think about, but finding someone else can actually help you to move on and won't cause you to have any emotions toward your cousin.

You might have to grieve for your crush and even give yourself time to get over it, but the sooner you find someone to crush on that isn't related to you, the better.
