This week on the message boards, y’all are discussing what you should do if you like your cousin: Sweet Sahara said: “I wouldn’t say it’s ‘wrong’.It’s not like you guys are siblings, but, however, it is odd.

When a guy ignores your message over something petty, what do you do?

How can I prepare a 8 year girl for a custody battle.

When I was older and found out that I had been crushing on my own bloodline, I freaked out.

It’s true that dating your cousin is legal in some US states. Post your own thoughts and questions in our boards and start chatting with other girls.

But, regardless of the legality of it, dating or hooking up with your cousin will likely cause a huge mess. If it ends, it’s going to be really awkward at family reunions. Get some great advice on being a freshman in high school Don’t forget to follow us on Twitter!

Think about how this situation will affect your whole family.

The stigma attached to first-cousin marriages was supported by early studies into human genetics suggesting that "recessive" versions of a gene (which are not expressed unless there are two of them, one from each parent) are more likely to be expressed in the children of genetically related parents, as well as more likely to be defective.

Most states in America have either outlawed or restricted the practice, as has China, Taiwan and both North and South Korea.

I don’t advise it because being family it could turn out bad or cause resentment and you don’t want to ruin your current relationship, do you?

Flirting is perfectly fine, and fun, for that matter.

Are you telling me that the dating pool where you live is so small that you're actually considering entering an LDR with someone who you would probably wind up producing special needs children with? That mommy and daddy have the same great grandparents because well, blah blah blah Hapsburg princes did it blah blah. Aside from the creepy aspect of sharing the same bloodline, do you want to get into something with someone that's going to be at every family function for the rest of your life after you inevitably stop hooking up/hanging out/discussing the fact that you share the same ancestry. If you're looking to meet guys, take up a new hobby or hit the bars, not your goddamn family reunion.
