the relative thing is not an issue--you don't live in the same household, and there's no genetic problem so if she gets pregnant, the baby is not at risk for genetic diseases.

The thing is--you are 14. You are at greater risk of getting somebody pregnant if you start dating at 14 than if you wait until you are 16. So, if you want to date her when you are 18 and she is 16--go ahead.
