Assuming that this is true;
Do you understand why he put up with all the teasing and insulting you guys put him through? Because he looks up to you as an older cousin and wants to be around you. Sounds like he just wants your company and is afraid of losing it, so he laughs along even though it probably hurts him. You said he doesn't really have any friends and is shy? You were his friend. How can you not understand that?
Let that sink in. He looks up to you, and then you help him land a girlfriend? You just became the coolest family member he has! He finally feels safe enough to come out of his shell.
And then the rug gets pulled out from under him. You broke his heart. He sticks his neck out from his social comfort zone and you fucking whipped his face. Total social humiliation.
I'm going to be honest here. He will never look at you the same ever again, and quite frankly, he shouldn't. I'm not giving you advice on how to mend things with him. If you really valued him like he valued you - well you wouldn't have gone so far to fuck him up.
Since he is too shy to say it, I will. You are a fucking cunt.

Take it easy man. 

Now that I've had some time to get a bit less irate about the situation, I do need to reinforce and agree with Reim's second post with regards to giving your cousin space; the goal here should not be to try and 'fix' your relationship, or get your cousin to talk to you, etc, etc. If you're concerned about his well-being for its own sake, then using his parents as an intermediary- as if they know what went down they are likely keeping a very, very close eye on him- to see how he's doing will be more than adequate to keep you up to speed. Be available to speak with him if he chooses to, but don't poke at him, text him or try to show up at his place without permission.

Because you need to understand that there's no way you can make this 'better.' There's just some things that 'sorry' can't really cover, and suffice to say, there's literally nothing you can say that's going to improve things. If you absolutely NEED to send him the message you're sorry, relay it through his parents. But this isn't a case of him misunderstanding a situation, or needing to have something explained to him. You've no valid justification, no reasoning that'll make him think; "Oh! Well, when you put it that way, yeah, guess it wasn't too bad after all!" You did a terrible, terrible thing, and he's reacted exactly the way almost everyone else would have predicted he'd have reacted.

But on top of that, your presence- be it your face or a text- will just serve as a vivid reminder of his humiliation and heartache, and his decision on when to face that should be entirely in his hands. I've seen people who have betrayed the trust of someone they cared about- a couple of friends who cheated on their significant others, mostly- who got it in their head that 'I just need to go see them, MAKE them talk to me, show them how sorry I am and they'll take me back!' Never works. All it does is rub salt in the wound, cause the person they betrayed more pain.

He may choose to forgive you, to an extent (though it will likely be years before he trusts you in any way, if ever,) and he may not. But if he does, always remember that he never had to; you don't inherently deserve his forgiveness, and aren't entitled to it, so if you GET it, treat it like the cherished gift it is. Basically, don't fuck up again. =P

Bullying gets my goat. I guess attacking you won't really solve anything though so now that you know my opinion:

All you can really do is apologize, but give him his space. Don't repeat yourself too much either. Check up on him without necessarily trying to invade his privacy ya know? Zanten has some good advice too

Much obliged. ^_^

Zanten, Doer Of The Things

Unless He Forgets In Which Case Zanten, Forgetter Of The Things

Or He Procrascinates, In Which Case Zanten, Doer Of The Things Later

Or It Involves Moving Furniture, in Which Case Zanten, F*** You.

That was a really cruel prank there. Borderline harassment if you ask me. People who have never had anyone to love romantically know the pain of lonliness all too well. The fact that you did it as a prank will make him feel absolutely worthless. If he was dealing with any sort of mild depression beforehand, this event could cause him to fall deep into depression and in even severe cases suicidal. I'm just going off of my own judgment here because if this happened to me I know I would never be able to get over it.

The only thing I can recommend is to find a way to make it up to him. Also don't be too invasive and give him the time he needs to be alone when he needs it. I hope he gets better. Good luck.

So my cousin Jim is 18 years old now and he is a bit shy and timid around girls and has never had a girlfriend or even any friends. Although he is a pretty smart kid at school and excels in each class. So me and my other cousin Tom love to tease him a lot for our amusement (yes it's horrible and we shouldn't..). But he is always nice about it and never gets mad at us.. perhaps because he knows we are bigger than him and he can't hurt us? or maybe its just that he has a kind heart, that could also be a reason why.  So anyways recently my other cousin Tom suggested we should ask one of our female friends to "pretend" to like Jim and show interest in him.. We thought that would be hilarious.  At first our friend Ashley was hesitant to do it but we finally convinced her.. We told her no kissing or making out just make him feel good and pretend you like him romantically.. So for the entire week Ashley was talking to Jim, she was texting him , going to movies etc.  Eventually, Jim became so utterly happy I had never seen him like this before. We thought it was amusing and we couldn't help but laugh.. but Ashley insisted that it should be over and we should just tell him it was a prank because shes tired of pretending. So the 3 of us decided to invite him to my place to tell him. When he arrived he had flowers with him which he gave to Ashley..  I saw the look on his face he had the most happiest face i had seen in my life(not exagerrating).  So then Jim looks at me and Tom and he hugs us saying "guys I just wanna thank you for arranging a date between me and Ashley if it wasnt for you i would never meet her!"  And then something shocking happened which made me feel horrible..  he started weeping out of joy and saying he thought he would never have a girl to like him ever but he is glad that that isn't true any longer..  At this point, Ashley was just looking down out of guilt and embarassment and Tom just gave me a look that said "you tell him..".    Thus, I had to find the courage to calmly explain to Jim that Ashley was in fact hired by us to pretend to like you for a week because we thought it would be funny however we are sorry because we did not realize that this could potentially hurt your feelings..    Suddenly, Jim's whole faced changed and he was in disbelief he looked at Ashley and said "is this really true?"  and Ashley said "Im really sorry Jim.. your a nice kid".    Then Jim abruptly left my house.   I tried texting him and calling him but he doesn't want to reply.

This is the first time Jim has been mad at me or Tom.. I think this was a horrible prank and how can I apologize to him? What should i do?

Update:  A lot of people are wondering if I may be joking about the whole thing, unfortunately i didn't make it up and it all really happened. I wish I could go back and cancel the whole prank but I can't do that. I have tried contacting my cousin Jim and still no luck.. his parents told me that he doesn't want to talk to me or Tom. I just hope he is ok thats all i care about at this point.

if even 10% of this story is true then you are scum.  You deserve shame, you deserve ridicule,and you deserve a quill in your eye. Seriously, how dare you. 

That's some cartoon villain shit, right there.

I hope you'll find it in your heart to repent what you've done every day for the rest of your life!

It's absolutely unbelievable how you violated that line of trust between a FAMILY MEMBER. You should be lucky you got off easy for emotionally and psychologically damaging your cousin. You can be forgiven on many acts but I wouldn't see it anytime soon or ever in your case ...

This disgusting topic needs to be closed and never touched upon EVER AGAIN ...

Edit: You want to know about his well being ? After what you pulled off you have no right ...

Egh. Link him this thread and we'll discuss with him about how much of an asshole you are. Or he just reads it. He then makes up his mind and punches you in the face or forgives you... or both. Then you buy him a hooker- no, 2 hookers, some bottles of champagne and a Ferrari. Then he punches you again, cuts your dick off, says "It's just a prank bro" and you guys are even

Might take you some months to get that second punch; depends on how long you paid the hookers for. PS: the first 2 sentences are the serious ones. Although, if you could make the others possible, he might forgive you sooner rather than later.


But paying a hooker is what got him in this mess, no?
