Was it horrifying? Was it easy? For those who have met your significant other’s parents, let us know!
From my personal experience, my family already knew one of my ex-boyfriend’s parents because we had been family friends. So check “meeting his parents” off that list! However, there was another ex-boyfriend when it was awkward meeting his parents… the “being in his house alone not doing anything but bumping into them” kind of awkward. The most recent ex-boyfriend I’ve had though, I met his parents but it wasn’t very planned out. We were coming back from an outing with friends and decided to stop by his house so he could pick something up. I was a bit nervous and worried but his parents were so nice and welcoming. It was easy to be around them and not awkward at all. They really made an effort to make me feel at ease and I really appreciated that. I honestly will probably send them a Christmas card thanking them for everything they did for me in the time period when I was still with their son, haha. They were that welcoming!
Tips and tricks from my experience:
1) be nice
2) compliment their home/son or daughter whom you are dating
3) be polite
4) engage in conversation
5) be yourself!
Good luck if any of you are meeting your mate’s parents anytime soon! Does anyone else have any tips or tricks of their own?
