Best way to approach something?

Dear all,

I've recently overcame my ADHD disability in terms of being able to manage it. Now that I finished school I have decided to make Aliyah to Israel. In this country I have a large extended family. My grandmother suggested I form a cousin like relationship with one of my second cousins. Due to him being a native Israeli and having a similar upbringing as me.

What's the best way to approach this?

Thanks!

I've never been to Israel, but a number of my friends have (one of my friends has two children there right now) and they report that Israel is a very warm and welcoming society ... people band together and support each other and take care of each other.

Just contact your cousin, introduce yourself and say you'd like to meet when you go over there. You can even say, my grandmother gave me your name and suggested I contact you ... He'll most likely respond and you guys can set up the details to meet.

I don't want to disagree with your grandmother, but she's jumping ahead a bit. Once you sit down, you may or may not feel like you click with this cousin. So you may or may not form a close bond ... He'll probably suggest places for you to go, probably will invite you out with his friends/family ... but if you don't form a good bond with him, chill ... because my friends make it sound like you'll form bonds with random Israelis you bump into.

Good luck.

Tone

I think I understand.

How about writing a friendly letter to your cousin before you arrive? An ice-breaker, so to speak. Maybe you can meet some place to socialize and if you don’t click...you both tried. You may enjoy getting to know each other.

Regardless, grandma is appeased; I sense that’s important to you. Go with the flow?
