Bible warns against internet dating
But from what you tell me about this situation, it is far from the biblical warning.
We may naturally shrink from the idea of marrying a relative, but in fact we are all related. The Bible warns against near kin marrying but the definition of near kin seems to be much more narrow than third or fourth cousins.
Being heartbroken will actually help, because being so emotionally involved with an ex means you won't pay much attention to the new man - and are a challenge without even trying. Every woman we know who moved on quickly realised with hindsight that the man she had been pining for was wrong for her.

It has also become a joke to put down those who were considered to be from the sticks--that is, rural folks who did not know any better. Second cousins usually share a common set of great-grandparents and one-fourth of the genetic pool.
There's no need to tell the world - including potential boyfriends - about your daily routine. De-friend and/or block exes, especially if they ended the relationship.
Some men want to stay friends on Facebook, but we are not fans of keeping a connection with an ex. The second is to initiate contact - the cardinal rule, as with all Rules, is that he writes to you first. Focus on surface details, such as your profession, hobbies, favourite films and food.
And if a man shall take his sister, his father's daughter, or his mother's daughter, and see her nakedness, and she see his nakedness; it is a wicked thing; and they shall be cut off in the sight of their people: he hath uncovered his sister's nakedness; he shall bear his iniquity. They include father, mother, step-mother, sister, step-sister, grandchildren, aunt, uncle, daughter in law, and sister in law.
Technically, this does not prohibit marriage to cousins.
