Cupid’s Advice:

Sometimes, it can be hard to tell when your relationship with your man is moving to the next level. But, the time may come when you’ve decided that it might be time to bring your man home to meet your folks. So, what are the tell tale signs that it really is time to introduce your significant other to the rest of your family? Don’t fear; Cupid is here with some advice!

1. You’ve been together for awhile: You obviously don’t want to rush your relationship with your guy, so if things look like they’re pretty serious and you’ve been together for about 3-6 months, then it might be time to bring him home. Chances are, if he likes you, he’ll like your family!

2. You’re serious about one another: If you are spending a lot of quality time with one another and you both have talked about your future as a couple, then it looks like things are getting pretty serious between you two. This is a great time to move things forward and introduce him to your family members.

3. He seems eager: A definitely noticeable sign that your guy is ready to meet your family is if you suggest the meet and greet and he seems excited, or ready to seize the opportunity. Nothing’s worse than a guy who gives a nervous look at the suggestion to meet your blood relatives, so make sure he seems happy about the opportunity!
