Dating during the holidays can be exciting and overwhelming all at once. When you’re in a new relationship during the holiday season, there can be a lot of unnecessary pressure that can impact the relationship. We understand that navigating a new relationship can be tricky, let alone during this time of the year.
Here’s our comprehensive guide to entering a new relationship around the holidays. These simple tips help make the holidays fun, enjoyable and relaxing with your new partner. Here’s WeClick’s guide to dating during the holidays.
Exchange Gifts – But Keep Them Small
One of the biggest issues that new couples run into during the holidays is the size, cost, and complexity of gifts. This can all be avoided with a simple conversation before the holidays begin. Simply discuss expectations and guidelines for shopping. Purchasing gifts for your partner should be fun, not stressful.
When it comes to purchasing gifts for your new partner, it’s best to keep things small instead of purchasing something extravagant. A small gift lets you know you care about your partner without being too overwhelming. A large, expensive gift can make it seem like you’re coming on far too strong.
Make it something personal and relevant to your relationship. It’s much better to give a small gift that shows you’re invested in the relationship than getting a big gift to try and impress your new partner.
Find Time For Everyone
The holidays are usually a busy time, and it can be hard to make time for everyone that’s important to you, especially when you’ve just started a new relationship. Creating a balance with friends, family, and your significant other is often easier said than done.
A new relationship is fun and exciting, meaning people often have the tendency to spend as much time with their new partner as they can. While spending time together brings you closer, there’s a point when so much time is spent with them that you neglect spending time with others./p>
Bring Your Date to Events
The holidays are the perfect time to introduce your new partner to your family and friends. Bring your date along to parties, gatherings, and family get-togethers. Always ask your friends and family before bringing your date along, just in case they may not be comfortable with them attending the event.
Bringing your new partner along not only gives your friends and family the opportunity to get to know them, but it lets you both grow closer together. You get to see how they interact with your friends and family, which can give you an indication of whether your future together will work. It also allows you to strike a balance between spending time with friends, family, and your significant other.
Create special memories by establishing holiday traditions. These traditions don’t need to be anything extravagant and can be as simple as eating a special holiday meal or doing a fun holiday activity together. Creating holiday traditions bring couples together and give couples something to look forward to in the future.
