Starting a new relationship can be one of life's most exciting experiences. It can also be scary with moments of uncertainty and a million questions.
It is a discovery process to find out if this other person, for whom you have an initial attraction, is someone in whom you want to invest time and emotional energy.
But what happens if this relationship begins shortly before or during the holiday season?
The immersion into the dating after October brings new challenges. In addition to tThe learning curve in the decision whether this person has or not Long-term potential: The pressure of parties, family reunions and gifts is increasing.
ONAnd do not get me to run Hallmark Christmas movies!
Everywhere you look, love is in the air.
With all these emotional stimuli at every turn, meIt is tempting and easy to find a new relationship. This can lead to conflicts and even erase a love story.
If you really want to build a solid relationship, it is advisable to work out holiday logistics.
So, what to do?
Honesty and balance are the key
It goes without saying that honesty is the foundation of any relationship, but an extra dose is required during the holidays. The expectations can be very high and not everyone has the same Christmas spirit. There are also religious and cultural preferences to consider.
It is important to communicate your wishes and at the same time appreciate and respect the wishes of your new partner. Both parties need to understand that the timing of certain holiday traditions may not be right. THis first holiday season may not be the time to be inseparable.
Y.They also need to find a way to reconcile time with each other while meeting seasonal commitments. Do not leave Mr. Love Bug alone every weekend as you race through the city wearing your festive garb. And do not expect Ms. Cutie Pie to sit next to you, waiting for you to drink eggnog with all your friends and eat sausage balls and then see New Year's Eve.
You need to find time to integrate them into your holiday, even if it means forging new plans or even starting what might turn into a new tradition for both of you.
Let's take a look at some pitfalls for new relationships this season and how best to avoid them.
# 1 – meeting of family / parents
There are no strict rules when it comes to early dating etiquette at this time of year. Both parties must find it easy to include others in their personal family vacation plans, especially when traveling,
If you are not ready to introduce your new love interest to your family (and their endless questions), you will not feel compelled to. And on the other hand, you should not use guilty feelings to make a vacation trip to the family home. There will still be plenty of time in the future.
However, if you decide to take this step, discuss expectations. Prepare your family and confirm that it is okay to bring a new guest and teach your new love small family traditions or rules for overnight stays.
# 2 – The office party
If the idea of bringing them to your office party annihilates your Christmas lights, then just a RSVP for one.
Her work environment is almost like a second family. They have spent a lot of time with them and they know their best (and worst) stories.
You may want to experience a bit more experience with this person before you release them to this part of your world.
# 3 – The gift
Christmas time is the official season for "Every kiss starts with K". Most TV and Internet commercials focus on what you can buy to prove your commitment.
Do not be persuaded by a clever marketing strategy to go overboard with your new love.
When it comes to gifts, I suggest you discuss a dollar limit. It may not sound romantic, but it should help alleviate concern about how much is too much and avoid disappointment on both sides.
Depending on the length of the relationship, you may choose to forego gifts and instead donate together to a charity or volunteer.
A Christmas present should not be seen as proof of your interest. If you both want to exchange a funny gift or a thoughtful expression, do it anyway. However, make sure that both parties agree on the decision, and then prevail. A last-minute surprise may sound sweet, but could trigger an unpleasant moment.
Holidays are extremely stressful under the best of circumstances. Adding the uncertainty of a new relationship can make things seem more chaotic. It does not have to be that way. This is the time when fun and open communication should come first.
Find a way to enjoy this festive season so that both parties feel comfortable while respecting the wishes and limitations of the other party at this stage.
Understanding and compromise can come into play and should be handled with tact and maturity.
But do not forget to have fun and have a nice holiday !!!
And like always ..
Hope with Abandon
