Dating your sibling
If I authored a pamphlet for “going from awkward to ‘Modern Family,”’ it would really be a bumper sticker: Grow up!
* * * * *Dear Amy: When my wife and I were first married, we would invite my parents to our home for Sunday dinner.
My family started putting wrapped books on our kids’ beds several years ago at your suggestion, and now this is a treasured family tradition!
Keep your friendship intact by following these guidelines to dating your friend's sister.
I don’t want to label you as a homophobe, and yet: You are filled with dread and anxiety about the “awkwardness” of your brother’s sexuality. But his sexuality is really not up for dispute or discussion. If a family member has a romantic partner that seems unfit, the best thing to do is to meet that person.
The only way to influence this young man is from inside the family fold.
Gain inside knowledge: Use your relationship with your friend to gather some insight into what his sister likes and doesn’t like.It’s not uncommon for guys to become attracted to sisters of their friends.
