I like my brother-in-law's cousin
I like my brother-in-law's cousin, I have for years. He's three years older than me, but that doesn't matter in my opinion. He comes from a messed up family - he had a controlling and manipulative dad who isalated the family. My family isn't great either, my dad's also quite manipulative and puts up a good act. We're both quiet, but I feel like we have things in common - many things. I really want to get to know him, but, as usual, my shyness holds me back. I don't really know how to descirbe it when we look at each other. The closest thing I can think of is that it's like everything fades away. I tend to forget where I am and who I'm with until after I look away. I think he likes me back, but I don't know for sure. It'll probably go nowhere but I wanted to get this off my chest.
