We weren't that serious. We only dated for one summer and we actually broke up because I was looking for something more. He wanted to party and drink all the time and I couldn't do that. I had just started a very demanding job and I had a 2 year old to think about.
But we were pretty good friends before we started dating. He was my cousins best friend.
I want to go to the funeral... Idk to say good bye. But I don't want to offended anyone. We had a pretty bad break up. His mom loved me. She thought I was "good for him." But the truth he wasn't good for me and I couldn't ask him to grow up, it was just too much to ask.
We did talk a couple of times after the break up, and even though he was heart broken at first he admitted to me that we were headed in different directions. He ended up being glad I broke up with him.
Yes, I knew his family well. His mom LOVED me while we were dating. She would make jokes about us getting married which made him really uneasy.
But after we broke up she made comments about me using him or whatever... Even though it wasn't like that. He was 20 years old at the time we were dating. I was 19 with a two year old. It wasn't fair to him for me to ask him to grow up when he was just acting his age.
My cousin doesn't even know yet. But I will ask him.
If you knew the family well I would, if you just dated him and had no relationship with the family, I wouldn't. But you said that your cousin was best friends with him, so maybe you could go together.
