Have An Opinion?
Yes, if they asked me too. I’d also offer to go to the funeral for support for her if she wanted. There’s really no rules when it comes to these sorts of things, it’s honestly down to people’s preferences. To me, who I’m dating is someone important to me, so if one of their parents have died it doesn’t make sense for me to not support her in some way and if that means her wanting me to be with her during the funeral then I’d go.
I probably would but I'd ask them first if they wanted me there for support. I would not be offended if they did not want me there because I can continue supporting them afterwards as well. Can you imagine introducing someone new to your family under those circumstances? Awkward...
Couldn't have said it better...
Yeah no doubt and well said!
Thanks for the MHO
Absolutely I would, provided that the lady wanted me to be there.
No. I cannot do that.
Well, it all depends on it partner. If they wanted me there i would be but we'd just call us friends (if he was ok with that) cuz i won't want to be introduced as a girlfriend under those circumstances and i dont think anyone would want to introduce a relationship to family under sad circumstances nor would the person want to be explaining all that while morning a parent. If they didn't want me there i would be fine with that too and still be supportive. I would let them know that i would be there for them and if they need someone to talk or just listen or just be there, thats where I'd be even if its just a shoulder to cry.
Depends on the person. I think by default I would not go, but I'd look for hints that they might want me there.Unless it's been specifically announced that the funeral is private (which a lot are) then they are open to pretty much anyone. Unless it's a very small funeral, there will almost certainly be people who don't know each other. So nobody will think anything negative of you being there. Funerals are one of the least judgmental occasions there is. Everyone is there for their own reasons, and nobody is going to question that.But if I only knew the person for a month, I'd stay off to the side and let the person I was dating take the lead.
Considering how my partner is someone I hold dear, I would personally want to pay my respects to the person who raised them, especially if it's the last time anyone can ever see them in the flesh. But at the end of the day, it's my partner's say. If they want to keep the grieving in the family, I would respect that and support them. I don't expect to be introduced to anyone if I do happen to go. As a matter of fact, I would vehemently oppose it if they suggested it. But yeah, I would make know my desire to attend the funeral even if they'd prefer we attend separately. No matter what, I think I would understand
In my religion there is this prayer called 'janaza' that men pray at a funeral in the mosque before burial. If I was a man I would probably just attend that as a good manner if I felt like it was appropriate to do, depending on the situation like how close we have become, how close we live, how much I know their family etc factors... But otherwise, and especially because I don't have the responsibility of praying janaza, it's a no from me. Too early. I don't see myself going to the funeral at this stage unless something very very exceptional happens.
I wouldn't just show up, I would ask if they would like me there as support. I wouldn't go for any other reason but to support the person I was trying to build a relationship with. As I have not known the person in question, it would be easier for me to be the stronger support person as there would be no emotional attachment. Its also a good way to see my partners family and friends in unfortunate circumstances.
Only if I was invited. I'd only been dating a guy for about 3 weeks when his moms sister died. His mom invited me to the funeral, so i went. I didn't really want to go, because I didn't know any of the family. It felt really uncomfortable land awkward
If the person you arr dating invites you, you go. If he makes it clear it is family only you don't. All other cases - ask!"This must be really hard for you, I'm truly sorry. I know we have only seen each other for a short while but if you want me to go work your and support you I'd be happy to do so"
Yes, you show them you care and are there for them. If you don't how can they be sure you're ever going to be there...
I was dating a guy for less than 2 weeks and I went to his cousin's funeral he pleasantly surprised.
If you're not there.. Then expect to be dumped the next day!
After just a month? Wow
Well that's when you need to support the most.. Plus couples are already having sex within a few weeks
Ok fair enough!
You would ask the person who's parent died... if it is ok to be there for the emotional support as well as well as showing the community, family and friends that this person was loved by many. Being present at a funeral has many positive effects to others outside of ourselves.
Probably would ask first because maybe he doesn't want to say yes when he's not that sure where the new relationship is going if there even is a new relationship.
Some couples are really close after only a month of dating. Others are not. Talk to the person you are dating and ask them what would make them most comfortable.
If they want you there, you should come. If they don't want you there, you should fuck off.If they want you there but the rest of the family doesn't, you should defer to your partner's wishes, but remain as obsequious as possible.
Is the bouncer gonna pick you up and throw you out the door for paying respects at a funeral?I highly doubt it, so why not just go
I believe if the person asked you to go for support them yes. Otherwise, I'd thinknit would be too soon to take part in such a close personal thing.
Of course! It has nothing to do with dating and everything to do with being there for a person in there time of need. Friends do that, they show up!The only way i wouldn't is if i knew she didn't want me there. For whatever reason.
No I wouldn't unless they asked me too when my Mum passed away unexpectedly there was someone from my sister's work who came to the funeral my Mum had never met her neither had anyone else in the family it was like why is this stranger here
@hands4you fuck you it was my Mum's fucking funeral why the fuck would we want people we never fucking met there fuck your heartless cunt
I told you... YOU HAVE SOME SERIOUS ISSUES! Please seek Psycological help! Who are you to tell people that are living how to show respects to your deceased Mum. Shame on you!
If the person I'm dating invited me to funeral, yes. Otherwise no. The conclusion why the person invited me or not is another topic.
You ask the person you've been seeing !! Why would you assume otherwise, in either direction? The whole idea is to comfort and support them, so if your presence will create family conflict, let her/him tell you so.
I would want to go so I could be there for them but I’d make sure to ask first instead of expecting them to be okay with it.
I would for support, but only if she wanted me there.
I would probably ask them if they wanted me there. If not, it's ok, I'd understand.
Depends on the person I'm dating. I would support them but since I'm new i would not go to the funeral. I would need to be invited if they want me there.
Depends entirely if I had even met their parents and if the other person wanted me there.
If you are invited to go and have the time / the chance you go out of respect for the deceased and the person you're dating
Definitely, and without a doubt, unless I'm explicitly told not to go.
I voted “other”, mainly because she may not be ready to introduce me to family yet... that could compound the emotional stress of the day.
This happened to my uncle and his ex girlfriend. She did not want him at the funeral but he wanted to be there.
I don't think I would want to because I'd feel like I'm taking advantage of her emotional state. If she wanted me to go, I would want to go as a friend.
I would say no, not unless they explicitly requested my presence.
If they wanted me to come, then yes. I wouldn't just assume that it would be a good idea for me to go, tho. Especially if we're not that serious yet.
If you care for that person the answer it's yes, to show that you will be there when he or she needs you for support
Ask if they want you to come. Accept it if they so no. If they say yes be supportive but understand if they need space mentally and physically
I would have a active communication to ensure it's ok for you to go. I went to my ex girlfriend with her to her grandmother funeral and we wernt together. She wanted to be there for her
I didn't because she had her the dude she cheated on me at the time and he was there I didn't know how I'd react so I didn't go
My date would've been a friend for some time, so if she wants me to then sure I would.
Yes. You are providing emotional support for your SO.
Maybe if I don't have to take a lot of time off and they feel comfortable doing that.
Yes, unless you dont want to. But only if there's going to be a sweet ass after party.
I would support them through the difficult time however they needed my support.
If she invited me to come then yes, but I'd need to ask first
If they're comfortable with it then I would. That's the least I could do for support.
Id say ask the partner if they want you there for support, if not so be it.
Yes in support of your partner, they'll need your strength to help them get through the day.
Too soon for what? To show you're a human being? SMH!!
if this was a written test i would probably fail
Tough decision for sure!
If your partner wants you to.
If my partner wanted me there, i'd be there.
Yes, unless it's a long ways away.
Yes you should show support to your new partner...
Speaking as someone with experience because my dad died when I was 11: If I was dating someone & my mom died & the person didn't come to support me at my mom's funeral, then unless they had VERY good reason, I'd definitely dump them, because I'd feel like they didn't care about me in my time of greatest need.
Only if they wanted me to.
If i got asked to come, then i will.
If we’re a couple yes to support THEM.
I would be there for them.
No, that requires more than a month of dating.
Only if they wanted me there for support
Of courseAt least as a friend
If it was me I would yes
