11 Signs You Should Take Your Significant Other Home For The Holidays

11 Signs You Should Take Your Significant Other Home For The Holidays

The holidays can get crazy enough, is it time to add in your significant other to the bunch too?


It's finally the holidays! This is by far my favorite time of the year. I love all of the smells, the food, the laughs, and of course I get a kick out of the occasional bit of family drama.

While the holidays are already a big deal, an even bigger deal is deciding to bring home the guy that you have been seeing. Now, this isn't just any guy, this is a guy that you really like, maybe even love.

You have a million thought running through your head about whether you should invite him to spend the holidays with your family or not, but you're still just not sure. But, do not worry, I have compiled a list of eleven questions that you should ask yourself before you invite him home to spend the holidays with you.

1. Your relationship is serious.

There's no point in taking home someone that you only partially like. The first question you should ask yourself when deciding to take home your boyfriend for the holidays is are you two serious.

2. He's already met your family.

If he's already met your family, they should already have an opinion on him and he should already have an opinion on them. If your boyfriend has already met your family, there should be no question that it's probably okay if you're bringing your S.O. home for the holidays.

3. You're ready for your S.O. to learn embarrassing stories and see embarrassing photos.

Let's face it, parents love to bring out the baby books and if yours are anything like mine, they're pretty embarrassing. Only bring your significant other home if you're sure that you can handle the embarrassment of baby books and stories.

4. They're hinting at it.

If your boyfriend is anything like mine, they've been hinting for months about coming home with you for Thanksgiving. If they're willing to take this step, then you should have no doubt that it's finally time.

5. You feel comfortable with them.

Comfort is key. During the holiday's you'll be indulging yourself in lot of food and lots of potentially embarrassing family traditions. You have to be comfortable with the person you're bringing home or else you will not enjoy your time back home.

6. You're getting along.

There's no reason to bring home a boy if you're probably going to break up in the future anyway. Before you decide to bring home someone, double check that you're still getting along with them.

7. You've at least mentioned them to your family.

If your family doesn't know who this person is that you're wanting to bring home, you're probably not that serious. Before you bring home your boyfriend, try at least mentioning them to your family.

8. You've been together more than a day.

Do not bring home someone that you met on a dating site two days ago. Everyone has seen how badly this goes in the movies, so please ask yourself before you bring someone home, how long have you all been together.

9. It's exclusive.

This one's simple, do not bring someone home who is still seeing other people and do not bring someone home if you're still seeing other people. This just doesn't make sense. Exclusivity should be the number one thing that you check before you bring home your boyfriend for the holidays.

10. You both feel ready.

If you're not ready, don't bring home anyone. Bringing someone home for the holidays is a really big step for a relationship and you and him both need to feel one hundred percent ready to spend the holidays together.

11. It wouldn't be the holidays without them.

Please, if you cannot imagine spending the day without your boyfriend, bring him home. Don't doubt yourself if the only way you can imagine the holidays is with your boyfriend. Bring him home.

To The Boyfriend Who Makes It Feel Like Valentine's Day Every Single Day Of The Year

I couldn't ask for better.


If love is in the air and it's all over your Instagram feed, that can only mean one thing: Valentine's Day is approaching.

When it comes to Valentine's Day, people typically try to go over the top and demonstrate how much love they have for someone else through giving gifts. Whether that's flowers, chocolates, or going out to dinner, the gifts are meant to show that it's a special day that's all about the person they love.

That's not the case for me.

Valentine's Day is just another day to me. The love I receive from my boyfriend on a daily basis makes me feel like a queen every day, so nothing will really change once February 14th rolls around.

To him, I just want to say two things: thank you, and I love you.

Growing up, I never thought I would know a love as wholesome as yours. I sure as hell never thought I would deserve it, either, but you've shown me my worth and what real love feels like.

I used to not know my worth. I used to only know love as something that turned toxic and controlling. You changed all of that once you came into my life. You have shown me a healthy love that was trusting and unconditional, and I'll love you forever because of that.

I don't need Valentine's Day to know how much you love me. I don't need flowers, chocolates, or anything material to know that you see the rest of your life by my side. I know all of these things because you consistently show me that they're true on a daily basis.

You show me love in everything you do, whether that's holding the door open for me when we go out to eat, asking me how my day was, or making sure that my mental health is okay. You always greet me with a hug and a kiss, and you make me feel like I'm the most important person in the entire world.

You don't need to demonstrate a grand gesture to prove to me that you love me because I've never once doubted your feelings for me. You always tell me how beautiful I am and all of the things you love about me. I'm so thankful to be so head over heels for someone who cares about me with all of their heart.

I could never ask for someone better than you to be my partner in crime. You know me better than I know myself and I love every fiber of who you are. I know that in everything you do, you have me in your mind and your heart. You've shown me what it means to truly love someone, and for that, I'm so grateful.

Thank you for showing me what I deserve, and thank you for making every day feel like the most romantic holiday on the calendar. I love you.

If You're Grossed Out By PDA, Then Don't Look At Me And My Boyfriend Kissing, Easy As That

Building my relationship and showing my boyfriend how much I love him will always be more important than catering to someone's bitterness.


Whenever I see two people kiss, I always smile to myself briefly before looking away. That may sound weird, but honestly, there's something really heartwarming about knowing that other people are happy and in love. In a world that all too often seems full of hatred, heartbreak, and suffering, I try to value little moments of love. I've always felt this way, regardless of whether I was moody or happy, single or cuffed, and having a good or bad day. But apparently, other people, as I've recently found out, don't feel the same way.

"Do you two ever brush your teeth?"

"Are you picking bugs off of each other?"

*Other various glares and audibly annoyed sounds*

Talk about a mood killer, right?

I'll never get what possesses people to say stuff like that when there's a simple solution to this problem.

Don't like it? Don't look.

No one is forcing you to watch us be affectionate with each other. You can easily turn around, check the notifications on your phone, or talk to whoever you're with instead.

I've kissed my boyfriend in LOADS of places: restaurants, bus stops, school buildings, carnivals, parks, beaches, cars, apartments, social gatherings, and so on... And I can promise you that even when you act disgusted by what we're doing or make a nasty comment about us, we're not going to stop. So there's really no point in wasting your breath or expending energy on overdramatic facial expressions.

Even if just for a brief moment, try to think about why a couple might be showing affection for each other in public. (News flash: They're not doing it to deliberately make you comfortable.) It's more than likely that these two people are making the most of a moment.

They're happy and in love. There's nothing wrong with that.

On the flip side, why are you making such a big deal out of something that doesn't involve you whatsoever? My guess is that you're either unbearably lonely, jealous because your own relationship isn't suiting your needs, or just generally coldhearted. If any of those scenarios are true, I wouldn't be surprised. You chose to be hateful and rude over being civil and staying out of matters that don't personally involve you.

Regardless of the circumstance, it's a you problem that you need to work out on your own time.

Just like communication and effort, affection is an important part of a relationship. I want my boyfriend to know that regardless of where we are or who is around us, I will never be embarrassed or reluctant to kiss him or touch him. His feelings guide my behavior. He's my #1 priority. Building my relationship and showing my boyfriend how much I love him will always be more important than catering to someone's bitterness.

You can't avoid being around happy couples in public (really, we're everywhere), but you can change your reaction to them. And that's that.
