When you go public with a new partner, what can it mean?
A relationship isnâ€™t considered “official” until you come out into the open with it. Â Cupid has some reasons going public may be a good idea:
1. Nip it in the bud: To prevent the awkward “getting caught” scenario, tell people right away. Â Then they wonâ€™t be surprised when they see the two of you getting cozy! Â More importantly, they won’t start up the gossip train.
2. Stop rumors: Set your friends and family straight by letting them know exactly what is going on. Â Sometimes leaving people to speculate is the worst thing you can do, because it makes for unnecessary drama.
3. Get serious: Going public with your relationship is a way to take it to the next level. Â Letting people in on your status shows them that you’re proud to be with your partner!
