A lot of new couples find out just how serious things are this time of year. When it is time to decide where you two will spend the holidays – together or apart, things get pretty clear.
Some people place a lot of meaning in meeting family members. If you are not invited to Thanksgiving dinner, should you be worried?
It depends, really! I believe that when the time is right, you will meet the family of the person you are seeing. It should not happen before you both feel ready to meet family.
I think that the important thing to remember is when and if you meet someone’s family, you have to be your authentic self. Don’t pretend to be someone you aren’t to impress them. Family members can spot a fake person from a mile away. Well, my family members can!
What do you think is important to know when you are ready to meet the family?
Have you ever dated someone who did not introduce you to their family? I know someone who dated a young woman for years and never met her family. She was basically delaying the inevitable “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner” scene with her African American boyfriend and her Korean parents.
Would you allow the person you are dating to keep you from their family?
How do you know when and if you are ready to meet the family?
