Aimi: Maybe his cousin did say that but she is his cousin, she is not him. If he directly said it to you then it’s likely he was being honest. You should always rely on the primary source because in the end, she’s not him. As for his best friend, be honest, tell him you already have someone else in your heart don’t throw him in the same state of confusion that you’re currently in. Don’t lead him on, it’s simple.
