Girlfriend meet with Parents : make it happen

1. Tell about your family: Before you introduce your girlfriend to your parents, make sure that your girlfriend knows everything about your family members. Make sure that your girlfriend  is aware of likes and dislikes of your family and prepare herself according to that.

2. Give a hint to parents: Talk causally about your affair to your parents and make them know about background and  lifestyle of your girlfriend in advance. So that your parents will be mentally prepared for the meet and they have some image of your girlfriend.

3. Tell her to “be herself”: Tell your girlfriend to”be herself”. She should not overreact to impress your parents. She would only be comfortable if she remains herself in front of your parents. If she will react differently in front of your parents, your parents will surely come to know.

4. Make her comfortable: Your girlfriend might be nervous, make her comfortable and assure that you will always love her no matter what. Respect her in front of your parents and support her, if she fails to answer any question. Try not to leave her alone with your parents; she might not able to handle the meeting alone.

5. Be polite: When you introduce your girlfriend in front of your parents, be polite. Introduce your girlfriend with her proper name not with the one you call her in person. Be decent in front of your parents. Your parents must feel love between you two, not infatuation.

Hope these tips will help you. Wish you good luck.

    i hv learn something dat wil relly help me

  • Miaka July 7, 2011, 8:17 pm

    We went to a bbq and he introduced me to a woman with her first name. About 2 hrs into the party, i found out it was his mom. We’ve only been dating for a few weeks but i think that was a good approach to meet the parents. Its no pressure. I probably wouldnt have gone if he told me. And i would be too nervous too if i knew. I was basically just myself and i had a great time at the party.

    • Ruchi July 20, 2011, 10:20 am

      That’s great Miaka, Thanks for your comment and I am sure it will help others to change their perceptive towards meeting with parents.

    what is yo advice on the lady who has a child seeing a guy who has no child,stil loving her even tho she has a child.
    My girl is doing a three year course and i wnt to mary her as she continues wth her sku,she does nt want to accept the idea,shud i leave her to mary her sku? Mike

    • Ruchi June 13, 2013, 12:06 pm

      Hey Mike,

      I don’t understand that why people think that if a woman is having a child, she have to change? Can’t she live her life even having a child? Having a child makes her more perfect, responsible and strong. If she is in love with someone, there is nothing wrong unless she is giving proper attention, love and care to her child.

      About your other question, it’s up to you and your girl. You two have to decide your priorites in life. If you can stay committed to her and can wait for three years then it’s good. Ask her about same and take the decision.
