(Skinny Porter gave us permission to share this sad experience)


Two weeks ago Skinny Porter, and her so-called “love of her life,” Jordan, went to a party in Regency. Skinny, a senior on the girls basketball team, was excited to introduce her new beau to her family. They had been dating about a month and things were going great. Skinny thought her love fell from heaven, but come to find out he fell from the same gene pool, She learned that she and Jordan were actually second cousins.

Skinny’s heart was shattered.

Skinny’s advice: Ask questions about your boyfriend and his family before you start dating

    I am so, so sorry that this happened to you. You are precious and sweet. I guess it’s a learning experience? Find out all about the person and his/her family before dating.

  34. Kiana Thomas on February 6th, 2019 9:44 am

    I’m sorry that her “love of her life” was her cousin and she was probably embarrassed that they were at a family reunion and found out. I wonder if she told her family about him before they found out. Or did the family reunion happen before she could even ask her family could they meet him after only a month.

    Good advice and that sucks. But you can still love eachother as family and it’ll be something to look back on and laugh at.
