How to talk about parents and family on a date.

Family often brings out a lot of passion in people. They are the people we love most, but also the people who have the capacity to hurt us the most. People may not realize how they feel about their family until they start speaking about them. We can be surprised by the strength of resentments that have built up inside of us. There is no reason to paint an overly glossy image of your family to impress a date. They are focused mainly on you, not your family.

Nor, however, should you vent all your sensitivities about your family. Be conscious of how you speak about family members, as this topic can sometimes stir deep emotion and could lead you to express yourself in when that would not be in your best interest.
