It’s that time of year again! Love is in the air and for most of us we are running around trying to find the perfect gift for our loved ones. Also, we are reminded how important time is with family. Some of us may have a new flame in our lives, so how soon is it to bring “Bae” home for the holidays?

  • What’s your status?

I think the appropriate time to start introducing Bae to the family is when you know the relationship is serious. If it’s a fling then keep him or her just where they belong, to yourself.

  • Have the discussion

Talk to your new beau about where his or her comfort level is with meeting the family. Sometimes meeting family during the holidays can be overwhelming because you’re meeting everyone at once.

  • Prompt your family

The best thing to do is ask the family if it’s okay to bring your new flame home for the holidays. You don’t want the family getting caught off guard about this “stranger” you’re introducing to them out of nowhere.
