Hi Emily.

Welcome to KS. You will have amazing support here.

Tell us a little bit more about your story. How did it start. And with whom are you in a family relationship with?

Best wishes

Thanks for the quick reply. My first involvement was with a male cousin (mom's side) in college. Both of us were over 18. I'd moved in with my aunt and family to save on out of state tuition and dorms. We'd always been close, but ended up spending lots of time talking, which turned into time cuddling, which turned into more. Things pretty much came apart after graduation when we both realized we had different life paths, and would be moving different places. We still are very close, just not sexually. Four years ago, my brother found out about my cousin and me, which led to conversations, lots of discussion, and confessions from him about his feelings for me. I think it brought out feelings I'd also had for him. We've grown closer, and even though we don't live together (we are in the same town), we have a close emotional and physical relationship. We both try dating other people, but it just doesn't seem to go anywhere emotionally. Physically, we have an 'open relationship" and both say that, if the other forms an emotional bond with someone else, we'll step back, but that hasn't happened so far.

Welcome aboard Emily, I've upgraded your account so you have access to all forums now Smile

Your feelings are pretty normal, a lot of us can have physical relationships with unrelated people but cannot form an emotional connection to them beyond friendship. It is possible that you may be on the scale, read these couple of articles I wrote and see if any of this applies to you and your brother:
