Instead, I will only get to pathetically vent to my Hubpage readers about what I believe would have been the right advice to give.
I try and commit one good deed to a stranger each day. There is no need to date your cousin, however distant you care to pathetically explain, you cannot date your cousin.
Sixth cousins are so distantly related that there is no reason why you shouldn't be a couple if you wish to be. I mean seriously, all West Virginia, brother and sisters dating jokes aside, did someone really ask this and did Abby really say, 'to allow dating your cousin to evolve..?
My neighbors tell me they see him drive past my house.
DEAR ABBY: About a year ago, I stopped seeing a man I'll call "Vince." Since then he has been stalking me.
He sends me texts with photos he took of us while we were dating, but distorts them to make me look like I'm stabbing him in the heart.
If you are in one of the ones across the bottom, first cousin is socially acceptable as long as not the same gender.
The next layer up (think Tennessee, Oklahoma) second cousins are fine.
