First crush in a while...

I'm a single gay lady in my mid-30s. I'm relatively out (but obviously not fully out, judging by the fact that I'm posting this anonymously). I find myself crushing on a lovely woman for the first time since I last got my heart broken, something like six years ago, and have been single that whole time. The problem here is that the lovely woman is so wrong for me (on paper, anyhow), for so many reasons, that I'm unsure if I should try to pursue things, or even if there's anything to pursue.

How to help guide my family and daughter through her orientation (when she isn't quite ready to tell them)?

My 13 YO daughter feels deep down to her toes that she is bi-sexual (perhaps bi-curious is more apt). While she's been "out" to both of her parents (and siblings) for a few years now, no one outside of our household knows this. Her Dad and I fully support her and she knows this. (Not elaborating, just trust me.) My dilemma is with the extended family. [more inside]
