What are some ways to keep your relationship under wraps at first?
Sometimes, you want to be able to keep your personal life to yourself when starting off a new relationship. Cupid has some advice on keeping your new relationship a secret:
1. Keep some distance: If keeping your relationship on the down low is important to you, you need to make sure that your friends and family don’t catch on to a secret affair, because then they will become more curious. Take phone calls in privacy, don’t spend all your time texting, and don’t give too many details about where you are going when you are meeting up with your partner.
2. Be clear about your feelings: If someone does catch on to a mystery person in your life, talk to them about how you feel. Explain that in these early stages, the two of you are choosing to keep your relationship a secret, and that when you are ready, you will tell them.
3. Communicate: Together the two of you need to decide whether or not your relationship will stay under wraps. You both need to be on the same page about what information to share and what not to share. Communication is key when making these important decisions.
