Shake It Off Taylor Swift
Meeting someone new is always exciting, especially when you really like each other and you begin to hang out more and more.
However, when it comes to introducing him to family, do you find yourself making excuses? And he's not exactly jumping with joy at the thought either...
When it gets to this point, you might need to take a rain check. Is it really going to work out? Are they really 'the one'?
Here's out guide to knowing when to stick with the blossoming relationship and when to nip it in the bud.
If you find yourself on a date and it sounds like the clattering of knives and forks and the sounds of chirping crickets then this is a definite sign that they might not be the one for you...You want humour and excitement, particularly at the beginning of the relationship! If there isn't that spark you may want to reconsider.

Are you a bit scared to admit that you're a total Vampire Diaries addict? Instead of catching up on some supernatural action, you find yourself watching a Star Wars medley marathon with him in a full face of makeup because you told him it was totally, like, your favourite film too! If you're too afraid that they'll judge you for who you truly are then maybe your should call it a day.
Okay, so his mum doesn't have to be your BFF but remember if you're in it for the long haul, so are his family. And his best friends don't have to be your best friends but if these are the people he surrounds himself with... Ask yourself, do you really want that?
Opposites attract, right? Not always when it comes to your true beliefs. If you believe that pizza should only be eaten on weekends and they are adamant that every day is a pizza day then it's going to cause some serious arguments. Okay, we're using pizza as an example here but you get the point.
Oh puuuurleeease! If they can't stop talking about their ex early on in the relationship then you know they're not over them. Don't get yourself caught up in unfinished business...
