Holiday dating is always a tricky thing. To avoid anything awkward, here are six things to steer clear of.

  1. Moving too fast in a new relationship, just because you are afraid of being alone.
  2. Inviting someone you recently started seeing home for the holidays just so you won't be the only family member without someone.
  3. Spending too much money on a gift and making the other person feel uncomfortable.
  4. Hooking up with an ex just because you are lonely or horny.
  5. Expecting a proposal.
  6. Prolonging a dying or dead relationship just so you can have someone during Christmas.
