Is it weird to date your "cousin"?

*I DONT MEANT AN ACTUAL COUSIN*
I mean when your parent has a best friend and you grow up calling them aunt or uncle. Then they have a kid and you call them cousin even when you're not actually cousins.
What if you were to date or do things with this "cousin"
Would that be weird?

Updates:
by the way I'm not asking for me. Just wondering

  • No because you're not actually related.

    • exactly. i hate when people try and make something seem like what it isn't. its the same as step siblings you're just total strangers who happen to live together or have gotten to know each other etc. yet so many people act like its a huge deal when really they need to get their head out of their ass and just get over it

  • No but it is weird to call someone like that your cousin. You do realize for someone to be your cousin, they actually have to be related right? It's a family friend, not a cousin and yes its perfectly OK to date a family friend.

    In a lot of Islamic cultures they also all marry their first cousins so go figure.

  • If they like you then go ahead and date, like you said their not your real cousin, but if they see you as a real cousin (in their mind) then don't cross that burning bridge, I report don't cross it. Good luck pal.

  • No, it's not weird because you aren't actually related to that person, you just refer to them as your "cousin".

  • Nope I don't think that's weird at all? You guys grew up together but you're in no way related? Your parents just so happen to be close. I say go for it if you want it.

  • When asking society, everything is both weird and offensive.

    But no I don't see anything strange about it.

  • Why do you even call them cousin? Aunt and uncle is normal technically it would be ok

    In your case, it's fine.
