    Ok so tomorrow I'm gonna be seeing my cousins who I haven't seen in about 5 years and tbh now I feel like I don't even know them and quite frankly I couldn't care less if we do see each other or not cause I don't know anything about their lives like quite a few are meeting and I didn't even go to their weddings

    Anyone else not close whatsoever with certain family members

    I don't like mine either. I just ignore them.

    It's worse when they try to engage in conversation about some random bulls*it.

    I just say to them "do I know you? No? Okay bye" and walk off.

    It's worse with the random aunties. Every wedding I go to there's always at least 5 ladies coming up to me and saying "do you remember me? I last met you when you were a 1 year old" like I'm meant to remember everyone.

    Isn't that what most people go for? 😂😂

    I had that the other day.

    I just say no straight up. Then they start describing how we first met when I was an embryo or something so early in my life I don't know what the f#ck she's on about.

    There are some who grab your cheeks, but that happens far less on because I look like a grown man.

    Just weird. I hate it.

    Good luck with it all
    as for the last line yes, only have two people who i consider proper family. Everyone else is either dead, not my real relative (i.e those fake 'aunts' although don't see those anymore), lives too far away (dont want to see them anyway cos they are horrible people) or i've never met them.
    so yeh such happy families lol

    Yeah get it all the time. The other common one I get nowadays is "so is it your turn to get married now?" I end up doing a U turn and go to the other side of the hall.

    I'm too young to be asked those sorts of questions but I'm expected to marry at 26-28 when I'm in my "prime".

    My market value will be the highest then.

    Good point. I'd say 26-28 is the best period too.

    If they looking for girls already, they will have to be younger than you. If you're 20, the girls are still teenagers probably.

    I've just told them I'll find my own girl. I'm not letting my parents choose for me 😂
