Romantically tangling with a friend's family member can be dicey no matter what. Add a massive age difference, and it's basically a minefield of awkwardness.
A woman recently took to Reddit to ask for advice after her friend's child confessed to having a big crush on her. She wasn't interested. But still, she's not sure if she should tell her friend about it or let sleeping dogs lie. Here's the full story.
The child of a very close friend of mine recently confessed their romantic interest in me. They were unfortunately very serious about this. I was very involved in bringing up this child - almost like an aunt/uncle - so the confession was a huge disappointment. I have been reflecting on my actions these past few days - really just fearful that I have f***** up in my interactions with the child and permanently twisted them somehow.
