Unlike you however, we knew we where family when we met (we met in a family christmas party) and even though we never really knew about eachother untill recently I consider her extended family and I'm actually proud she's my cousin.So in my case I can't posibly even imagine her in a romantic way, but I have to admit, if we hadn't met like that, I probably could see her in a romantic way since honestly, third cousins are really far away generically speaking.
She says it is weird and she isn't sure if she can handle it. TL; DR found out I'm dating my 3rd cousin once removed I can't barely recognize my second cousins, the genetic similarities are far too removed and as an old saying "the ones who matter don't mind, those who mind don't matter". Keep pursing her.3rd cousin means its a green light.
there are reasons second cousins is legal in most of the united states and the world.
I think the only problem with dating a cousin independent of how close they are too you is of you considered them family before considering them as a romantic interest, for example I have a "cousin" who isn't actually related to me at all but I've always known him as my cousin so he's family, and you don't date family. First cousins mean you share the same grandparents.
Second cousins means you share the same great-grandparents.

We actually both like each other and we have talked about it.We have been friends for over a year and a half and things started changed from a friendship to a dating relationship when we found out that we are third cousins once removed. I've done a lot of research and most of what I have seen is that dating a 3rd cousin is no different than dating the general public.You're so barely related I don't think it matters.
