I have been having a long-term relationship with my cousin.

Customer Question

I have been having a long-term relationship with my cousin. He ended this as he was worried about his 17 year old daughter finding out and upsetting her. He then took his ex out on a date and this caused a huge fight with us as i told her that we had been in a relationship. He has said he never wants to speak to me again and has been really nasty. How do i fix this and try to re-build our relationship?

Hi, Thanks for your question and I am sorry this happened. Are you trying to rebuild the relationship you have with him as your cousin or as a couple?
