Take a deep breath before you go, & Just Be Yourself. If it's meant to be, they'll love you for you. You can always find out what interests them & make a point to talk about that & show interest in them & their hobbies. :)

Be proper, but be yourself. If you hide yourself, the latter years will become much more difficult. It is less important that they love you than they seeing he loves you. Try to show them how well you two fit without bragging, and just relax. Luck!

Absolutely yes being your self. Do some deep breathing. Try to relax they are probably just as nervous as you are. Offer to lend a hand with the cooking with the dishes or anything else like that too. Let them know you're so excited yet very

I'll second the idea of an inexpensive but thoughtful gift. Maybe a little plant or flowers...something to show that you're thoughtful and, if she likes you, something that she'll see and immediately think fondly of you.

It went pretty well. I didn't see this in time but I bought his mom daisies cus the wall art flower I made wasn't up to the par I wanted. So I gave her flowers and I made his dad a board an painted it, it said "Shhh... The Devils are on!"

With the logo, it came out not half bad. And they seemed to like me, paid for my dinner and lunch, even though I tried to pay. His mom was very nice to me, and the father asked lots of questions but made lots of jokes with me.

OK- toooooo late. But would have said all Tops is top advice. Focus on enjoying their company. Be sure and repeat the thanks for hospitality and find at least one thing you loved about each of them. Share that w ur BF . He will tell them.

Disagree with whatever they say.

Get your lip pierced before meeting them.

Dress "down," casual.

I disagree. Every time I've tried any of these (and not even in church) it still didn't work.
