I can't stop thinking about my cousin since our drunken kiss

DEAR DEIDRE: I CAN’T stop thinking about my cousin since we had a drunken snog.

Last month, my friends threw a party for my 30th birthday and the drinks were flowing.

My cousin, 32, was being particularly tactile – hugging me and holding my hand a lot.

We’ve always been close – we have mutual friends from school – but I thought it was because she was drunk.

As I went to say goodbye at the end of the night, she dragged me into one of the bedrooms. Next thing I knew, we were kissing.

We haven’t spoken since, but I can’t stop thinking about her – and I’m hoping it’s the same for her.

The fact we’re cousins doesn’t bother me, but I’m worried what our family would think.

DEIDRE SAYS: In the UK, it is legal to have a romantic relationship with your cousin.

But you’re jumping ahead of yourself here. First you need to know how your cousin feels.

If it’s not the answer you’re hoping for, my support pack Moving On will help.

Good luck.
