The holidays can put any kind of relationship in a bit of a pressure cooker. People are already stressed, they’re already being kind of forced to spend time with family and answer hard questions, and it can all feel like a bit much.
I would guess having the feelings and plans of more than one romantic partner to consider would only make that harder – but these 10 people are able to tell us for sure.
10. I imagine it takes some maneuvering.
But good communication is key.
9. Seems like there could be a better time.
Or place. Or both.
8. Sounds like there’s a story there.
Or maybe more than one.
7. It is a special time.
You want your loved ones close.
6. Snuggling is pretty nice.
The more the merrier.
5. It may be time to come clean.
I suspect you’ll be happier once you do.
4. One big happy family.
It sounds pretty nice.
3. Maybe it will be ok.
If not, too bad for them.
2. Girlfriend has a plan.
You’ve gotta respect that.
1. Your real home is the people you love.
Sometimes that’s not your birth family.
Yeah, sounds very stressful to me.
