Hey M Girls!
We have a BRAND NEW spin on the daily advice column on mmm-mag.com. Each day at 8:00 PM/EST we'll post a reader question and have our M Girl answer it!! Today, we're talking being close with your older cousin!!
M Reader sodapop741 asked: My cousin and I text a lot but sometimes he doesn't answer me and then later tells me "Sorry, I was so busy." But I hate it when he write back and I want to say something to him without hurting his feelings. PS. He's 17 years old. Any advice?
And M Girl's answer is: "I went through this same thing with my cousin when I was growing up -- except, I was the older one. Your cousin definitely wants to text you all the time and feels bad when he gets too preoccupied to write back. But he's also going through a stage in his life where he's totally into hanging out with his friends and is majorly girl-crazed. So he may get a little busy with his social life right now, but it doesn't mean that he doesn't want to text you back. So definitely don't take it personally when that happens. I guarantee you that in a couple years when you guys get a little bit older, you won't be able to stop answering each other! Some time needs to pass until you guys get out of the different "growing up" stages of your lives that you're going through right now. Trust me! "
