Properly Introduce Someone You're Dating

Properly Introduce Someone You're Dating

Do your friends ask the most inappropriate questions in front of your date? 

I totally understand how difficult the introduction process can be at any stage of a relationship but especially at the infancy stage when you don’t even know if you like the person.

Introducing the person you're dating to your friends can be tricky and can often open the door for your friends to play "20 Questions." Can you recall the last time you debated how to introduce someone you just met to your friends? What about being in the unfortunate situation of having to do so unexpectedly?

You should always be prepared for what I like to refer to as the hit and run collision. A hit and run collision is when you are on a pre-date or first date and you run into a friend or group of friends unexpectedly. Your friend(s) will of course greet you with a Kool-Aid smile but with eyes screaming, “Who is this?” I feel your pain.

Most would say the overwhelming feeling of despair would come instantly upon seeing your friend(s). If you’re like me, your first reaction is to avoid them at all cost, but from personal experience, that only makes matters worse. If you act like you don’t see them, they will make the biggest scene to get your attention, how embarrassing!

A seemingly innocent question, “Who is this?” has so much complication involved. And it invites more questions. So be careful in how you respond. Not only do you have your inquisitive friend(s) listening, Mr. or Ms. Potential will also have their ears wide open for the response.

Take it from me, the next time you are faced with a hit and run collision, think twice about using the classic line “We’re just friends.” “We’re just friends,” is an open invitation to play “20 Questions:”

* Where did you meet?
* How long have you been seeing one another?
* Have you slept together yet?

Get my point? And if your responses seem uncomfortable, irritated, annoyed and snippy, that’s a dead giveaway that there is more to the story. It’s best to remain calm, cool, and collected and be straightforward.

On a first date, or even on the first couple of dates, you don’t need a label yet, so why even say, “We’re just friends.” Keep it simple. State your date’s name and indicate what the two of you are up to; going skiing, having dinner, taking dance lessons, whatever the case may be. That will get you off the hot seat for the moment. Just be prepared, “20 Questions” may come later.

HOW TO MEASURE

Kinkster NYC Sizing Chart

The best way to determine size is to measure one of your favorite fitting shirts first and comparing to our approximated size charts.

WIDTH: The body width is measured by laying the shirt flat on it's back, keeping it free from wrinkles, and measuring from one arm pit to the other arm pit.

LENGTH: The body length is measured from neck seam to the bottom of the T-shirt.

APPROXIMATE CHEST: Measure under arms around the fullest part of the chest. Be sure to keep tape level across back and comfortably loose.
