Malon98 Posted October 7, 2019 Share Posted October 7, 2019 I (30y/o F) recently ran into my best friends younger cousin (24 y/o M) at a wedding this weekend, and was really attracted to him, which is super weird because the last time I remember seeing him he was probably only 8-9 years old. We didn’t get talk a ton (I was the maid of honor, so I was at the Bride’s beck and call and he was the DJ during the Wedding band’s breaks), but I think the attraction may have been mutual because at one point during the night he put his hand on my lower back while we were talking, (maybe this was really nothing but it didn’t seem like it). Sadly I was called away by the bride almost immediately after this happened so I didn’t really have time to respond/react, and I didn’t get a chance to talk to him again that night... I did just add him as a friend on fb (I’m friends with a lot of their family because I've known the bride since middle school, so I don’t think anyone will think that’s weird), but I don’t know how, or if I should, try to pursue this. Like I said, this is my best friend’s younger cousin (who my friend and I used to babysit for, almost 2 decades ago) and their whole family knows me, so I don’t know if it’s too big of a risk to try talking to him and risk making things weird, especially because I don’t usually like to date younger guys and he’s 5.5 years younger- and I don’t even know for certain if the interest was mutual, the back touch just felt like too much of an intimate thing to do to someone if you weren’t interested in them. The conversations themselves weren’t super flirty though, they were just light and fun. Can I please get some opinions/recommendations what other people would do in this situation? Thank you 🙏🏼 Edit: I should also mention, in case it matters, that neither my friends cousin, nor I, were drunk (we both had jobs to do, so we had to behave). I just wanted to make sure no one thought the hand on back thing was related to drunkenness, because that was what my sister thought when I just told her about this 😅. Link to comment
