Meeting His Parents for the First Time

Meeting His Parents for the First Time

Everyone knows this is a big step in a relationship when he’s asking you to meet his parents! So now that you’re both committed, you definitely want his parents to like you.

Meeting your partner’s parents for the first time can be a bit stressful, and since first impressions are important, here are a few things you need to keep in mind:

Punctuality: Make sure you are on time when you meet his parents, even if they’re coming over to your house, don’t make them wait.

Outfit: Don’t overdress or look sloppy, don’t wear something too revealing and keep your makeup simple.

Flattery: Try complimenting his mother, or better yet, compliment her son’s good manners and delightful upbringing in front of her.

Honesty: If they ask you about your future plans or any other questions, be honest.

Talk: Don’t be too shy to talk to them and open topics of conversation.

Get to know them: Show interest in them, they will love the fact that you want to get to know them better.
