I've been dating this guy for a little less than two months. I like him but he's hasn't introduced me to many of his friends. I know he doesn't have much family in this area. But I'd still like to meet other people who know him. What should I do?
Signed. Not sure in Pacoima.
Dear Not Sure,
Consider. What are you not sure about? Him or you? Do you like him? Does he treat you with respect and courtesy? Do you trust your impressions of him? If not, why not? What would others add to the mix except validation of your existing feelings? Okay. When "she who must be obeyed" accompanies me to the dog park she leaves me and walks away. She doesn't ask for the background and pedigree of everyone else in there. After a brief round of butt-sniffing I decide who I want to buddy up with and who's got a bug up his ass. I don't need to meet his mother or the pit bull that got in over the fence. You humans make this way too complicated. Kindness and thoughtfulness suffice. If you have both - consider yourself blessed and take each day as it comes. Nothing is given to us and, actually, nothing is in our control. Even if everyone in his family considers this guy a mutt he can be a purebred in your heart.
