Thanksgiving Dates

Debating whether or not to bring your boyfriend or girlfriend home for Turkey Day?

Here are six tips to making it work from Link4Love:

Communicate  Tell your boyfriend or girlfriend ahead of time how everyone your family is going to react…it’ll make it less awkward for both of you.

Discuss Any Topics That Are Off-Limits  Obviously it’s good to avoid politics and religion.  But if there are any other hot-button issues, let them know BEFORE they put their foot in their mouth.

Get On The Same Page  Especially with your “how we met” story.  If you told your mom you met at a museum when you really met at a bar, your date should know that.

Bring Something  If you’re not cooking dinner, bring a bottle of wine or a dessert.  It’ll give your family something to focus on, and it’ll help break the ice.

Don’t Apologize For Anybody.  Don’t apologize to your date about your crazy family, or to your family for your date.  They’re part of you, and everyone should respect that.

Relax  Spending holidays with each other’s families can be stressful, so the best thing both of you can do is relax.  If you’re nervous, you’re just going to make everyone ELSE nervous, and that’s when things get REALLY awkward.

And to that we say…MORE wine!
