From my understanding, if you are related to her by blood then this is no problem, but if she is married to your uncle (who is related to you by blood) than playing footsie with her would be haram. But as long as you're related by blood, I (persoanlly) see nothing wrong.

Hope this helps!

yes we r related by blood  but she is still a women nd footsie is considered  as a flirting so if its done playfully is it ok. Iam confuse

The thing is, without knowing your ages, it is hard to know what is going on.

But if it is 'footsie' in the way that that term is commonly understood, then of course it is unacceptable, or at the very least very weird.

Personally I believe that there is foot touching that doesn't fall under the 'footsie' umbrella, as an older person would do as a joke or a wind up to a small child - and your auntie might view you as a small child and is doing that.

When you are 16 and think you are grown up,  you never think that a 16 year old can be seen as a child,  but it is possible.

To sum up, weird behaviour depending on age and situation, but it could just be innocent.

she is married

Then tell her it makes you uncomfortable. Also tell her the rules of the religion even in regards to contact with one's own aunt. Sure, she is your mahram and to do anything with her would be incest to say the least, but still there are limits to how much interaction there can be. After all, even muslim men have restrictions on how much bodily contact they can have with their own mothers and how much skin  a mother show around her children.
