By Petra Halbur

Adam Levine and his new girlfriend, Nina Agdal, were spotted together in Los Cabos, Mexico on June 22. The two were seen playing with a volleyball and enjoying the summer sun. An insider told that the Maroon 5 frontman is “having fun” with the Sports Illustrated model but that their relationship is “still new.” That’s not to say that Levine is against the possibility of marriage, though. In an interview on Oprah’s Next Chapter from June 5, Levine insisted that, “I’m a fan of marriage. People think that I keep pooh-poohing marriage, but I love it. I want to probably be married at some point.”

What are some ways to announce your relationship to family and friends?

Cupid’s Advice: 

Introducing your new girlfriend or boyfriend to the people in your life can be intimidating. Cupid has some ideas:

1. Show your partner off: Invite your friends to meet your new beau somewhere where his or her talent’s really shine. For example, if your new partner is bilingual, you might consider inviting your friends to a restaurant where your partner can show off his or her linguistic skills by ordering in another language.

2. Avoid dinners: Advice #1 set aside, if you are particularly nervous about what your friends might think, it might be best not to stage the introduction at a meal. While it is the traditional setting for such get-togethers, eating is a stationary activity and so there is little to distract you from awkward pauses and failed attempts at humor if your friends don’t take to your partner right away.

3. Skype: If distance or hectic schedules separate you from friends and family, go ahead and announce your relationship via Skype. It’s far more intimate than a phone call or Facebook because it offers your friends and family to opportunity to both see and talk to your new partner.
