I am currently dating someone and he is awesome. He helps me out with me and my son when I was having a hard time. A few months ago I left his dad since he was abusive. My sister took the abusive relationship really hard when I told her what he did. Tonight, she invited me to dinner and my boyfriend wanted to come with me. My sister is very uptight. It's like walking on eggshells with her. I want to tell her I'm seeing someone but I just have a feeling she isn't ready to know about it yet. What makes me feel bad is that he has introduced me to his family but I fear my family won't take it so well because me leaving an abusive relationship is still fairly fresh with them. What should I do? Should I just wait?Answer Question

It is natural for your family to feel protective of you right now. They would be suspicious of anyone right now, no matter how wonderful he is. I don't think that means you have to hide your relationship from them. What might work better is if you let them know what is going on, let them know you are taking it slow and being careful, and ask them to be happy for you. Ask them if they can meet your knew guy without feeling awkward or uncomfortable, and if they say they can then introduce him. If they aren't quite ready respect that and ask them to let you know when they are ready.
