Maybe, dunno. I've always had a thing for the cousin stereotype.

I would never, and if I did have feelings I would probably reject them.

Why would you reject them?

A third cousin would be your cousin's child's child. Honestly, by the time my cousin's child had a child I'd be a grandmother. If people saw me with a child at that age that would be... well you know

Are you sure? I thought a third cousin was a person that had the same great great grandparent(s) as you, and would usually be close to your age.

Oh yeah, sorry I was thinking of third cousin three times removed. A couple month ago I learned a bit about family trees and got some terms confused. You can check the wikipedia article for it if you want.

Because I think dating a cousin is kind of strange so I probably would try to not see them in a romantic way.

Why do you think it is strange?
If you had feelings for them, why would you try to deny those feelings?

The idea of having a romantic relationship with someone I am blood related to makes me feel uncomfortable. But maybe I have to experience it to know for sure if I would still have the same feelings about the situation. I would think, knowing myself, I would deny them thinking they would go away, but I have heard in those cases is only gets worse. I guess I am truly not sure what I would do.

It would get worse because the if the feelings you have for the person are genuine, they will never go away no matter how hard you try to deny them, and you will be in a constant state of unhappiness because your subconscious is telling you that you would be happier with that person. It is better to just embrace those feelings and love that special someone, regardless of their relation to you.

Skeptical about third cousins... The only one I know that is my age threw a big honking rock at me last time I visited. Probably not though, not my cup of tea to date family. Kind of creepy in my honest opinion, but each to their own.

You would have to be pretty desperate.

I don't get why people think dating a cousin is okay. but, when it's sibling the say it's wrong. both are the same thing. they're both you're family members right. I believe that dating any family member is just down right creepy and wrong .I dunno that's just my opioin.

My third cousin doesn't resemble anything to me. Third cousin barley has any gene related so if you have a baby, it will not become mutated. Although, you do get a slight percentage increasement of mutation than normal couples(5th-8th cousins).

TL,DR: My third cousin is cute but I don't want to date her. End of story.

No. Let me put it in context. I am from a culture where family ties are really close, and it really really matters. I would never go out with a cousin. When I was in 6th grade a 3rd cousin confessed to me. He was handsome without a doubt, but hearing his confession gave me the creeps.
