Cupid’s Advice:

Announcing a relationship to your friends and family can be nerve-wracking. It’s a lot of pressure on the relationship once it’s declared officially. Cupid is here with some relationship advice:

1. Family dinner: Invite your partner over for a nice dinner or even a casual lunch just to ease them into your family. Your parents might question if he’s more than a friend instead of being completely blindsided. The meal will give you something else to focus on so the attention isn’t completely on your date.

2. On a group date: Your friends can meet him and find out about your relationship out on a date. They can see how he interacts with you and them and get to know him gradually. That’s when you let them in on a little secret: he’s officially your boyfriend.

3. Sporting event: Maybe you’ll get lucky and the kiss cam will find you and your partner. You won’t have to tell anybody; they’ll just know. Announcing it at a loud venue can keep it casual because it’ll stop them from making a scene if they don’t like the guy.
