Cupid’s Advice:

You and your new partner have been in hiding so long, and now you are ready to take it to the next step and go public. Unfortunately, you are concerned about the timing and possible reactions. Cupid has some advice to make the decision a little bit easier for you and your latest love:

1. Everything is going smoothly: When you cannot deny the feelings and there is nothing to complain about, you should probably begin to brace yourself for making the big announcement. You are more than satisfied and secure in the new relationship, so why hide it any longer? However, be sure you are absolutely comfortable and willing to inform everyone.

2. It is a mutual decision: Both parties should agree on whom, when, and where to tell. If your partner has not quite warmed up to the idea just yet, give him/her some time and maybe ask for their reasoning. You want to confirm that they have the same vision of the relationship as you do.

3. Longevity: Have the both of you discussed a future life together? Is it a fling or forever? These are questions to ask and keep in mind when making the decision to announce your relationship. If there is any doubt of being together later down the line, be cautious of informing family and friends. You want to be able to share the news, and your loved ones can count on this person to be around months (even years) down the line.
