My Niece

Okay I just wanna get peoples idea on this though its kinda weird :P Sorry... okay I was talking to my niece today, our age is 3 years apart by the way, and we get along great and like to joke around and she told me she wants me to tickle her and we got onto that and talking about it sorta jokingly and stuff but she told me next time I come and see her see wants me to tickle her :P Now umm is that odd? Were teenagers too haha or is it just nothing? She's family, I love her, and I don't mind it.

Hmm...I think that it is odd that you posted this actually...how are we meant to know?

Never do anything that you are not comfortable with.
Never as a young man place yourself in a position that you have to defend.
By this I mean, do not place your hands or body on any persons body without consent.
You are a male you need to start protecting yourself from accusation that might arise.
If you and your cousin play around that is fine no harm done.
What might have been acceptable a few years ago might not be today however.
Even with family members.
Voicing your concern tells me that you have doubts about it.
You might want to discuss it with her or our parents.
Your reputation is priceless and must be guarded at all times. Shalom

Im okay with it, she said its okay and its her idea... and only reason im bringing it up cause of my cousin was just saying it may be weird. Its my nieces idea, she's the one that says its okay and theres not much in our age difference, we get along great. If it was my girlfriend it be different haha :) she's okay with me tickling her.

Let her friends tickle her, honestly it's kind of weird that she ASKED you to do it.

im honestly not sure of your age. But I would say if she is over the age of 10- 12 would be pushing it. Then definitely not.

It is odd that she asked you to tickle her? As mentioned above, protect your reputation at all costs. It will follow you around your whole life. It is probably harmless. But you are questioning, and your cousin is as well. It just doesn't seem like a good idea to me.

wait... im super confused! Like who asks someone to tickle them? I absolutely hate being tickled... and why would it be bad if you did? Isnt it all like fun and games? Especially since your family? I honestly don't understand!

the hardest part of riding is the ground... yup sounds about right

tbstorm it can be very invasive, which is why it's considered weird. But agree about the asking.. I absolutely cannot stand being tickled :/ yet I'm very ticklish so it doesn't take much. Just someone brushing by does the trick

haha the boys in my class this year liked to do the tazer thing where they walk up behind you and stab you in the sides... I hated it!! Well I have never heard of someone asking... but if she's tickleish and she asked for it I don't see why not... but I wouldnt just because she asked for it, that to me would be off putting and a tinsy bit weird (no offense)!
