You may be dating someone, and you might have noticed that your feelings for that person have grown. The two of you may have the same interests, but though most of the relationship is going well, you might have noticed that your other half hasn't introduced you to his or her friends or family. So, what do you do if your partner hasn't introduced you to any of his or her friends or family? How do you initiate this process so the two of you can bond on a deeper level? Though the answers to these questions may be different to everyone, here are a few suggestions.

1. Talk to him or her about who is close to him or her.

Talk about family and friends. Find out who is close to your partner and let him or her tell you why. Tell stories about your friends and family so the two of you can get to know a little about each other's relationships and get more comfortable with each other's support systems.

2. Initiate an event involving family and friends.

Talk to your partner and let him or her know that you would like to set up an event where your friends and family can get to know his or her friends and family. Work together to plan this event, and talk about any issues that the two of you foresee occurring before the event happens.

3. Talk to him or her about his or her hesitation.

If your partner doesn't want to set up an event where your friends and family can meet, then ask him or her why. Listen to his or her concerns and do your best to understand them. Ask him or her if it might be easier for the two of you to set up a dinner with his friends and family, so you can get to know them first. If he or she agrees, then set up the event so you can introduce yourself to his or her family and friends.

If you are dating someone that hasn't introduced you to his or her friends or family, then it might be difficult to know where things are going with your relationship. So, talk to your partner about these concerns, try to set up an occasion in which you can meet his or her family and friends, and listen to your partner when he or she explains his or her hesitation.
