26-year-old pop sensation Carly Rae Jepsen has found herself a new man, singer-songwriter Matthew Koma, reports People. The two have recently started dating, and Jepsen said of her new man, “He’s a really great guy, and really talented.” The romantic pop singer loves going on dates when she’s not topping the charts with songs like “Call Me Maybe,” and says she is attracted to guys that show confidence without being cocky. The new couple likes to go out and try something new, or stay at home to try Jepsen’s homemade sushi rolls.
How much should you reveal to your friends and family about your new relationship?
When beginning a new relationship, deciding how much information to give away can be tricky. You want to keep your relationship to yourself, yet also let people know about your happiness. Cupid has some advice:
1. Don’t go into too much detail: You don’t want to scare your new beau away by giving super personal details about your relationship to everyone you know. Like Carly Rae Jepsen does, try to tell people information about what you’re doing, like where you go on dates, without spilling everything that happened.
2. Speak up: If someone asks a question that you don’t want to answer, let them know. Don’t answer questions that make you uncomfortable. Your relationship is your business, and your family and friends are most likely just curious about your new partner. Just let them know that in such an early stage, you don’t want to give away too much.
3. Tell the truth: What you shouldn’t do in a new relationship is lie to your friends about it. You don’t need to go into a lot of detail, but you should give them some information if they are curious. Let your friends and family know the two of you are happy together and are excited about the possibility of the future, which will let them feel included without making you uncomfortable.
