New celebrity couple Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez have officially gone public on the red-carpet! According to UsMagazine.com, the A-list couple was photographed at the 2017 Met Gala on May 1 in the shining city of NYC, after being spotted the previous evening stepping out and cuddling up on a romantic date night. This Hollywood relationship began just three months ago, but an insider spills that it hasn’t prevented these two lovebirds from talking about a future together, which might even include a celebrity wedding. “They’ve been talking about the future and of course marriage has come up,” the source confesses. “They aren’t making wedding plans, but they have been talking about their lives.”

This new celebrity couple is going public with their relationship! How do you know when it’s time to introduce your partner to family and friends?

Cupid’s Advice:

There’s no doubt about it; introducing your new significant other to your friends and family can be super nerve-wracking! When in doubt, Cupid is here with top tips on when to know it’s time to make the big introductions:

1. When your partner is an integral part of your day-to-day life: If you and your partner’s days always include some kind of contact with each other, from a friendly text conversation to check-in or a date night for dinner or a movie at their house, it may be time to take the next step and introduce them to your friends and family. If you feel secure in your relationship and know that it is far from being an on-and-off type of thing, then it makes total sense for your friends and family to get to know more about your sweetie!

2. When you know they’re someone special: Introducing friends and family to a new significant other can be stressful, but what makes it a lot less of a hurdle to jump is when you know for sure the person you’re introducing them to is someone you truly care about and who you think is something special. You don’t have to be days away from tying the knot or on the brink of moving in together, but make sure this is someone who you want to bring home to your mom and dad, or have to dinner with your best friend. Remember, these are the people who love you most in the whole world, it’s actually an honor for your SO to get to meet them!

3. When you’ve talked about it: When in doubt, speak to your significant other about whether or not they’re ready to meet your friends and family. Even if they’re absolutely crazy about you, your partner may have some anxieties about taking such a big step, so feel free to put it off for another month if you feel like you’re still getting to know each other or aren’t sure yet what your label truly is. Whenever you decide to meet each other’s families, make sure you’re both comfortable with the decision and the timing and have discussed your relationship to enough of a degree that this introduction feels like the next logical step.
