Addicted to love? How to handle the holidays in a new relationship

The holiday season is in full swing. That means holiday parties, family dinners, present shopping and everything else that comes along with it. It’s also a great time to meet someone new.

So this holiday season we asked Aviva for her thoughts on how to handle the holiday season while in a new relationship. Here is what she had to say!

The holiday season is a very special time for everyone to be jolly in spirit and generous with kindness! There are always lots of great parties and festivities to attend. These occasions allow for great opportunities to meet someone new and exciting!  If you happen to meet someone extraordinary and fall in love during the holidays, then I say run with it. It’s all about living in the moment and appreciating the gifts we are given. If you want to buy them a gift then do it. If you’d like to bring them to your holiday party then do that. Enjoy your blessings!

NOW, if you are just starting to date someone and those feelings have NOT developed yet, then I would  take my time and get to know the new love interest first. I would hold off on the serious holidays together with friends or family in case it is not the right connection. The holidays are a very special time of year and it is a privilege to be introduced to our family during this very special time . Make sure HE or She is truly the ONE , as it makes a statement!
