After 2 years.. I am finally meeting the parents. Any advice?!
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!
Yes that's how it was! Thank you!
Be polite. Get each of your parents something special.
Give his mother some chocolates or flowers smile sweetly and be polite if they hurt your feelings keep quiet. Talk about how wonderful their son is. What a wonderful man he is and what a great job they did raising him. Treat it like a very
a very important job interview.
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
nervous to meet them.
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.
It went well. He texted me ad said they asked if I got home safe and were saying I was nice and sweet. So ^5, now I can breathe again! Hahaha thanks for the advice btw.
Yay!!! Sounds like it went really really well! :D And your ideas were sooo much better than mine!
Wonderful I bet they you adore you as much as we do. So very sweet.
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.
Exactly. It went good, I meet his sister in October.
Just be yourself
Oh and bring a gift of some sort. always wins points
Flowers and a NJ Devils board I painted for his dad :)
Have fun and relax. You are a great person and they will love you.
Thank you, it went well. They said I was "nice and sweet." Lol
I'm glad to hear that. :)
You will do great! As Rainey said... just be you!
Thanks! It's finally here and I feel like I'll be sick! Haha
And for what it's worth.... I have 3 sons around your age. From what I know of you in here and on IG, I would be happy if they brought you home to meet me!
That's very very sweet of you and makes me feel a little relieved. Thank you <3
Just thought I'd update and let you know it went pretty well :)
Excellent!! I am very happy for you!!! :)
You'll do fine. You've been waiting for this a loooong time ;)
Uh huh .. Thanks :)
Flirt with the father.
Play footsie with him under the table. Make sure you have the right person's foot.
Rainey said it best. And it's shenanigans pls fix it lol.
Disagree with whatever they say.
Get your lip pierced before meeting them.
Dress "down," casual.
Try to Make out with their son while they're watching. :-)
Tell his mom that you used to be a lesbian.
Arrange for a condom to fall out of your pocket and onto the floor. Haha.
All great ideas. Spot on advice!
Lol plan on all of these!
Best laugh of the day! You're good at this!
I disagree. Every time I've tried any of these (and not even in church) it still didn't work.
Haha 2kat. :-).
I agree with Rainey. She's spot on! It's natural to be nervous, but it'll be fine. Enjoy!
Thanks, I'll do my best! :)
Good luck! I'm sure you won't need it though! Just be yourself, I'm sure they'll love you :)
That's what I keep hearing, but I'm overly paranoid and nervous haha.
Thanks though! :)
I know how you feel!
They're son fell in love with you so I'm sure they will
I am praying it goes well >.< I really hope so. Thanks for the encouragement!
I had some good ideas up top. ⬆️
