Making Xenia’s boyfriend welcome

Xenia is back together with her old boyfriend, John.  Much to my surprise one of my favorite jokes, calling him “Xenia’s John”, has gotten old for some people in our family.  I can’t imagine why this is but I’m willing to abide by daughter’s wishes.  He does seem to be a pretty nice kid and I don’t have any objections to him dating my daughter.  Being that I’m not all that good with social skills I need some hints on dealing with new social situations.  I am therefore very pleased to see Xenia post in her Live Journal detailed information on how to make someone feel part of the family.  I would have never have guessed.  I can’t wait to follow Zanita’s lead in making John comfortable in our house.
