How do you know when to go public with your relationship?
When you first begin dating someone new, it’s a good idea to keep things under wraps for awhile until you figure out if the relationship is going to last. Spilling the beans on your love life too soon can cause some tension between you and your new boo, especially if he/she isn’t quite prepared to deal with your friends or loved ones. Do you think it’s the right time to go public with your partner? Cupid has some tips:
1. Family matters:¬†Has your significant other been asking questions about your family or friends lately? If he/she seems genuinely interesting in your family life, then it’s time to go public with the relationship. Don’t just break the news to everyone at once using social media applications like Facebook. If your love hasn’t met the parents yet, invite your family over for dinner and let them get to know each other. If all goes well, gradually introduce a few of your friends to your boo.
2. You’re in love:¬†The obvious sign that it’s time to go public with your relationship is if you’re in love! You can’t imagine being with anyone else and you spend all your time with your new partner. It’s time to tell all of your loved ones who you’re sharing your life with.
3. Enough time has passed:¬†If the two of you have been a couple for several months now and things seem to be going well, then it’s time to let the people you love know what’s going on. There’s a difference between keeping your love life private and keeping your relationship a complete secret. If you continue to shut your loved ones out of your private life, your partner might think you’re ashamed of being with him/her.
