  • Physically we a long distances apart. Emotionally I would say yes we are.

  • A few aunts and cousins, yes. But I'm estranged from my parents and siblings, so I have a difficult time seeing most of my extended family very often.

  • No.

  • Cousins- not really. We keep up with each other on Facebook and that's about it. We grew up several states apart and didn't get to see each other much. Aunts- I have disowned one aunt. Another aunt and I have a lot in common and we do keep up with each other on Facebook. We are even in a meetup group together and try to go on the same outings, but we really only get to see each other once or twice a year. A third aunt (by marriage), is a snotty person that I try to avoid. Same with her husband (my uncle). Another Uncle is just like  my aunt that I have a lot in common with so we do chat on Facebook a bit. Wow, I didn't mean to write a book about this, lol. Anyways, long story short I see my husband's family more than my own because of living in different states.

  • My dads side not much. I was reunited with my uncle from my moms side a few years ago via FB and we are so close.

    Answer by Izsarejman at 4:36 PM on Feb. 10, 2013

  • No. I'm not close to anyone anymore. Even my kids are grown and gone living their own lives with their new families. My parents are dead so it's just me. Sad.
