Would this be incest??

My nephew and my second cousin, so his third cousin. I think it's weird but they talk to each other in a flirty way. They didn't grow up together and our families don't even hang out or anything.

    I think after first cousins it's technically "ok"

    What's a third cousin? Is that your cousin's kid?

    There are cultures where 1st cousins are fine, even ideal... So 3rd cousins probably wouldn't be too bad.

    So what is the closet direct relative then have in common? A great-great grandparent?

    Not legally incest. Weird but no.

    If you're right about them being 3rd cousins then they're pretty distantly related sharing great-great-grandparents:

    Is the third cousin related to your nephew by blood or by marriage?
