Bringing Plus-One For The Holidays

Bringing Your Date Home For The Holidays

3 Tips from the Pros

It’s that time of year again and for those who are dating someone, we have a few suggestions to approach bringing a plus-one home for the holidays.

Prepare Your Date

Surprises are fun, but not always appropriate for the moment. Before bringing your date home for the holidays, show him/her some pictures of your family members and describe their personality, interests, family of origin and a few fun facts. This preparation will help ease anxieties leading up to the holidays and make it easier for your date to engage in light conversation.

Mix and Mingle

While some family members may be delighted that you are bringing your special someone home for the holidays, some of them may want to have the opportunity to spend some time with you alone. It is okay to walk away from your date for brief moments to catch up with specific relatives as long as you are mindful of not leaving them for long periods of time. This can be a great opportunity to notice how your date interacts with others as well as a chance for your relatives to get to know your date separate from you.

Relax and Have Fun

Rather than hyper focusing on the first impressions of your date, try to relax and savor the holiday festivities. Make sure you indulge in delicious food, smell the aromas, notice the beautiful decorations and above all remind yourself the reasons you are grateful this holiday season.

Perfect Match with The MatchPro
