How are your relationship with extended family members?

Extended family members are ones other than mom, dad, sisters or brothers.

They wouldn't know me if they fell on top of me. They avoided me like the plague all my life.

@curiosi I'm sorry that happen to you :(

I have a very good relationship with all my cousins, aunts and uncle. And all my cousins children.
Keepitsimple · 51-55, F
Except for one cousin really good! We are a close family.
Piper · 61-69, F
Distant and mostly non-existent, except for one person.

It’s great generally.
Last time 25 of us met for a dinner it was just before the pandemic in Feb 2020
It was great fun

I'm a lot closer to my dad's side of the family than my mom's.
They can all die from explosive diarrhea

Fine...the secret is not to contact often!

I don't really see them much
I haven't seen any of my extended family in almost half a century. As far as brothers and sister, it's been probably 20 years since I've seen any of them, and probably 40 years since we've all been together. We all get along fine, it's just that we all live so far apart.

Great for the most part.
We're separated by some years and distance and didn't grow up close to them.
Nevertheless, sentiments are always warm.
As for my Aunt/Uncle and grandparents, the distance just made the heart grow fonder.
We see each other at funerals … does that count ? 🤔 lol 💃🏻🕺🏻

@SW-User same here. I didn't go to the last one, (great aunt). Funerals are not family reunions and I'm not gonna treat them like it. I think it's really sad, that's what they've become.
Indeed … I’m sorry for your loss 🌹

It’s silly imo too that grown ass adults can’t come together unless it’s a funeral or a wedding perhaps lol … 🤷🏻‍♀️

take care @iamnikki
iamnikki · 31-35, F
@SW-User oh I'm totally fine, didn't really know her. Very silly, it's stupid.
Nayla · 51-55, F
All of them live very far away. I call once in a while and visit when I can

I have no problems with any of them, but several have problems with me. And I don't even know what I did to offend them.
ViciDraco · 36-40, M
Very rarely seen. I live across the country from family.
SpaceJesus · 41-45, M
I dont see them anymore!
iamnikki · 31-35, F
