DNA tests are great for finding your second cousins — except when you are dating them.
In a now viral post, TikTok user @mattilathehun revealed she has experienced this unwelcome surprise ….
“For my birthday last year, my ex got me one of those DNA test kits,” she begins.
She added how he also got one for himself as well.
Revealing her lack of knowledge regarding her family history, she shares:”My mom’s adopted, and I never really knew my biological father.”
The next day, @mattilahun posted a follow-up video to provide additional context to her situation.
She goes on to say that while the ancestry site suggested that she and her ex were third cousins, some of her own subsequent research indicates that it’s more likely the two are second cousins.
But it seems the couple’s family-ties were not the main reason for their breakup.
“We got the results back the first or second week of December. It’s now April. We broke up a week ago,” @mattilahun says.
“Mostly ’cause I hate confrontation.”
Welp….moral of the story? Double-check you’re not family when you start dating I guess.
