drifting apart - June 17th 2011, 07:52 PM

My cousin is 16,I am 20 we have always been close like sisters but for the past year we have drifted apart, we talk occassionally on text,she lives 10 minutes away and when I go to visit we have have nothing to talk about that much anymore. She is always wanting to go out with her and her friends and to be honest, I really don't have interest in that anymore,I guess you can say, I have grown up because she is always out and doesn't have any responiblilies even thought she has a kid, she barely spends time with him,I mean don't get me wrong in ways,she really is a good mom she just needs to slow down on going out with her friends all the time. I am going to try to spend sometime with her with her this weekend but evey moment I have spent with her for the past year has been dull,and quiet. Every time she ask me to hang out I am always busy or just don't have money to do it with. Me and my boyfriend haven't been out much in the past few months so we are going out soon,she asked to come but i told her i will be over at her house next weekend for some actual one on one time like we used to do,and i want to see how this works out because I miss the way things used to be. any advice?

Why not go to the park/zoo/etc. this weekend with your cousin and her son? You'd be taking care of two problems at once: she'd be spending time with her son (instead of going out with friends/partying it up with you), and the two of you would be doing something out of the ordinary (vs. sitting around the house all day being bored)! Other than that, I don't really know what to say, other than asking yourself what you can do to improve your relationship with your cousin. Is it simply a lack of time to spend with her? Is it a lack of communication? Have you lost some respect for your cousin due to the way she's living her life (not being there all the time for her child)?
