It is the most beautiful time of the year again, and there is not a single person that doesn’t look forward to Christmas decorations, holidays, and all the winter festivities. During this time, we tend to set new goals but also to reward ourselves for all the good things that we have accomplished in the ongoing year. That is why we want to celebrate, be joyful, and we all want someone by our side when the clock strikes midnight on December 31st. We feel more than ready to share the memories and happiness with a significant other, and that is one of the reasons why the holidays can easily make you feel like you’re in love.
However, that also means that you should pay special attention to whom you dedicate your time and your heart.
When we meet someone, it usually takes some time before we start to make appearances together, as a couple. The first dates only include the two people in question. However, when the holidays come, there are a number of parties, from the family ones to the work Christmas party (even if they are via Zoom).
So, in that romantic spirit, you will most likely want to bring your new partner to all of these events. This, of course, means that everyone will see you as a couple, and you may actually confuse the idea of wanting to be in a romantic relationship (as people perceive the two of you) with the actual sentiment. Thus, the real advice would be to take things slowly. There is plenty of time for him to meet your parents and your friends, and you can take the magical wintertime as an opportunity to learn more about each other.
Don’t hesitate to do some research
As holidays this year are specific as we are spending them in some sort of a lockdown, it is not that easy meeting new people and going out for a dinner and a movie. We all spend the majority of time in our homes but that doesn’t have to be an obstacle to meeting your new, significant other. Online dating has been popular for quite some time now, and with a number of different apps available, you can virtually meet people that truly seem worthy of your attention.
However, when you do meet a guy that you like, and you double-tap all of his Instagram images, you should put time and effort into finding more information about him. This is important because people tend to represent themselves differently on dating apps. Some tend to “catfish” by using images of other people or fake information, while things can be much more serious, and behind the keyboard can be a person who is already married or is perhaps a domestic violence offender. That is why it is important to do your research.
If you cannot get useful information by yourself, hiring a professional private investigator can be of much help and can provide you with a lot of details that can be crucial for your new relationship. These investigative experts will know exactly what to look for when conducting a background check on your online date, and they will do their job with the highest level of professionalism.
The information that you get can make you feel safe to start a new chapter of life with this person, or, if he is not what he presented himself online, you can end all communication and spare yourself a lot of trouble. It is important to say that, even if you had one bad experience, that shouldn’t make you feel discouraged to continue searching for love.
If he is the right one, you will know
As the holidays are all about love and being with the people we love, you may also feel like you have to say the most important words of any relationship, “I love you”, as soon as possible. Even worse, you may expect your partner to say it first and then get disappointed if he simply doesn’t utter those three words.
However, you should know that it is more important and more special to show love than to simply say it. It is never too late to pronounce those special words, and he may be simply waiting for a unique moment, like just the two of you under a mistletoe. In any case, you should follow your own pace, and you shouldn’t feel the pressure to do anything because everything around you feels especially romantic. Also, don’t put pressure on your partner, and if he is the one, you will know it even before he says, “I love you”.
To conclude, we can say that the holidays do indeed make everyone feel especially romantic. And while you should certainly enjoy this time of the year with your partner, take your time, respect his wishes, and most importantly, be careful.
