It's that really awkward time of year where you have to figure out whether you've been dating someone long enough to introduce them to your family. And that's TOUGH.
--Fortunately, we've got a four-point guide from a dating service called 'It's Just Lunch' for how you should handle the holidays with your new boyfriend or girlfriend. Listen and absorb . . .
#1.) Dating less than three months. Invite them to hang out with your friends. But nothing more than dessert with your family . . . and that's only if your family lives locally.
#2.) Dating three to six months. You can do dinner with the family, but only if they live nearby. You're not ready to travel home together yet.
#3.) Dating six months to a year. It's safe to invite them to travel home with you . . . but don't be shocked if they have an excuse not to go.
#4.) Dating over a year. You should expect to be with one of your families for the holidays.
