Is it normal to not be interested in your family?

    It seems like the older I get, the less I care about my family. There is no bad blood between us, and I would never say I hate them, but it’s more like I just feel nothing. I especially feel this way towards my mom’s side of the family. I never have any desire to talk to any of these people. I know one issue I have is that all of my cousins are married and/or have kids, where I’m single, childless, and living with my parents. It makes me feel like I don’t fit in with any of them. Does anybody else feel this way?

    Well that explains it. You have a different life situation than your relatives so you have less in common with them. Also I think that people normally grow apart as they get older anyways.

    I grew up with my mom's side of the family, but a lot of them are super religious (Mormon) I scared the shit out of my aunt a few months ago by having a pink phone case and being male; so don't really spend any time with any of them.

    Spend time with some of the cousins on my dad's side who I saw once or twice a year when I was younger.

    Things change as people get older

    Kind of in the same boat with you, i don't hate my family but, ever since i was like 14 years old, i just wanted stay away from them, in some ways, i felt unconfortable for no reason and even to this day, i don't really like to talk to them much, i just wanted to do my stuff and be alone most of the time.

    I thought that perhaps, as the years went by, maybe it was a normal behavior for a teenager, but now as an adult, this feeling never went away.
