Is it wrong that I don’t want him to meet everyone for Christmas?

My ex boyfriend and I have started dating again, I told him I want to take things slow and see if we can work through things. He met my parents, they really liked him but he doesn’t know the rest of my family. For Christmas, I’d like him to have dinner with my parents and me... but I will have a separate event with extended family. I’ve known him for 6 months, is it wrong of me to not want him to meet everyone yet? I don’t want him to feel like I’m using him or I’m not serious.. but being in lockdown put strain on the relationship so I want to see what our relationship can be like after lockdown, if it can work. 


I’m in Melbourne, Australia- we are still in lockdown

    Its better for everyone around, for different reasons, not to have him with the other members of your family. Tell him its safer due to the virus. He may not even want to meet them either. Do not push too much on him. Due to the virus, you two will have a long wait to see what normal is.

    Sounds OK to me. Not at all unreasonable. I doubt it will bother him. We avoid family altogether at Xmas. My wife and I enjoy the peace and quiet.

    I cook the Xmas lunch and get gradually sozzled (UK term). Great fun.

    It isnt wrong at all, you have only been together 6 months. That isnt long. He has met your parents, thats enough for now.
