The first time you see each other naked

The first time we get physical, there’s a lot to take in – from the penis size to body shape and everything in between, it can all get too much. Plus, we don’t know each other’s personal preferences, so there can be a bit of trial and error involved. Don’t stress yourself though, you’ll get over it in no time.

Discussion about using protection

When things get steamy, and your partner brings up the protection conversation, it can really get awkward. It’s an important talk that all new relationships must have. What kind of protection should you be using? Condoms or birth control? Find out more about both and have a frank convo with your man.

Meeting the parents

Things can become uncomfortable very quickly when eeting your boo’s parents, or vice versa. Be yourself; that’s the easiest way to impress the elderly.

Buying each other gifts

The holidays and birthdays are just a trial of awkward bombs waiting to explode. The struggle of figuring out where the relationship stands and how much money you should be spending on him and the reaction you’ll get is too much pressure. Play it safe and buy something that he has been raving about for a while.

Conversation about exes

Talking about exes can be awkward because he might ask you how many guys you’ve slept with or if you’ve ever cheated on anyone. The reason of the break up will eventually be brought up and the kind of person your ex is. Be honest.
