Actress Sofia Vergara recently spoke about her relationship with actor Joe Manganiello. The couple has been seen together a lot this summer, and they are adorable together. “You know, I’m just having a great time,” Vergara said in an interview. “It’s a special time in my life, and I’m trying not to think too much about it. It’s something very new, so we will see what happens.” The two were seen kissing during their vacation to Miami, where Manganiello also met the Vergara family. When asked if her mother approved, the actress replied, “What is there not to approve of?” A source told that the pair spends every night together, and that Manganiello cooks for his girl on their night in.

Cupid’s Advice:

Maybe you’re not as lucky as Sofia Vergara, whose mother approves of her new boyfriend. If your parents don’t approve of your partner, it’s going to add an awful lot of stress onto the relationship. But don’t worry! There are ways to address the situation and try to make everyone happy. Just follow these simple tips from Cupid:

1. Ask your family why they don’t approve. Who knows, maybe there’s a good reason your family doesn’t like your new love interest. They might bring up some red flags you’d never noticed before. Take what they say into consideration. They know you best, so their opinions should be important.

2. Tell them why your partner makes you happy. Maybe your family just doesn’t understand your relationship, but if it makes you happy, they should be happy for you. Explain to them what you like about your partner and why this relationship has been good for you. They might just need to have it explained to them in a way they can understand.

3. Bring them together more often. First impressions are important, but they could be completely off! If your family didn’t like your partner at first, try bringing them around more often and see if the opinion changes. Sometimes it just takes a while for a family to warm up to the idea of a new person being around. Soon they could start warming up to him or her and your situation will be just fine!
