It's the holidays, which generally means that you're going to spend a lot of time around your family. That also means that you're going to want to spend some time away from your family. If you can spend that time with a significant other or a prospective love interest, well, all the better!
Movies are always a good getaway, and the end of the year brings a bumper crop of Oscar-baiting options. Plus, you have the added bonus of (hopefully) snuggling up with someone in the dark. Unfortunately, not all movies are compatible for every stage of your relationship. You're probably not going to see a dense three-hour documentary about a grassroots political movement on a first date. That's why we came up with this handy guide matching this year's holiday movie offerings with each stage in the life cycle of a relationship. Unless, of course, you and your date think dense political documentaries are fun, in which case, knock yourself out.
