Have you ever experienced giving a house tour in your own home? How about being a guest in someone else’s home and you are being toured around by the host?
I’ve had quite a share of those. Both being the host giving the tour and the guest being toured. We all know that nothing is more character revealing than a person’s private digs, and that is the reason why the chance to check out a friend or acquaintance’s house is always exciting. It is to be noted though, that a house tour has to have a delicate balance between show and tell and even hide and seek. Especially if you think that you need to get the service of an online portal such as www.theotherwoman.net. There is etiquette involved regardless of when you’re showing a mansion a shack or a palace.
As the host, you certainly have rights, and that being said, one of them is to not give automatic tours to any drop-in visitors. This is mostly due to the fact that not every home is spic and span all the time. I can easily overlook this right, because the clean and neat freak as I am, my home is in tip top shape 100% of the time. Another hosts’ rights is that you can totally decide which room to show off and which you don’t. And lastly, make the tour brief.
As a guest, you have to realize that a house tour is just a bonus, so don’t expect for one. The invitation to go anywhere you please in the house should be taken with a grain of salt. And if you have to rave about something, you have to be sincere about it.
