Would you date your cousin?
I think it's creepy but I was reading online that a lot of people still do it. So would you? Or is that just too close of a relative for comfort? Maybe a 2nd, 3rd, or 4th cousin?
Candy canes are delicious!

Obvious reproductive issues aside (which aren't particularly relevant to me anyway), I wouldn't see the need. Dating is all about establishing new relationships... But with cousins you already have a relationship; yes, it's a familial relationship rather than an sexual/romantic relationship, but I wouldn't see the need to replace the familial relationship with something different... that person is already in your life, and so I think more often than not you wouldn't even develop feelings for your cousin, given the pre-existing relationship.
Although, you do hear of stories where two people fall in love only to discover they are related after the fact. In those cases, so long as they don't reproduce, I'm not bothered if they choose to stay together.

I don't even know who my 2nd/3rd/4th cousins are, but no.

I don't have any cousins I would ever consider dating if I weren't related to them. My extended family is extremely dysfunctional.

I regret I never slept with a cousin of mine. There was so much chemistry and caring. It was not a relationship as a girlfriend of course but not nasty sex. There were good feelings but we never did. She is married now but we should have done it and make love outside of our relationships.
So, if you get organize in your heads and understand is basically fun chemistry, go for it. But do not "date her" just benefits.
