It is an honor for us when the time comes that pour partners would invite us on their place and finally meet their parents.. It feels good because.., It is a way of telling us that they are serious about us and doesn't only want to play around.., We get anxious about it.., and we couldn't avoid feeling nervous.., if his pr her parents would approve us or not.., The first time I met his parents.., I was really scared and uncomfortable.., His mom looks really snob and strict.. but as time went by.., I realize that she isn't.. It was just a first impression but it never lasted long when we begin to have conversations.. How about you? how did you handle the first time you met your partner's parents?

I understand how you felt that time. Four years ago I met the parents of my boyfriend, I was sooo shy, anxious and nervous. I even didn't know what to wear on that day because I don't want them to see me not well dress so as the impression won't last, right? Good thing that his parents and I are already textmates even before we met. So we had a few conversations already when we talked. His brothers told me that I was the first ever gf that he introduced to their parents so it's really a bit awkward the first time we met. After years of call and text with his parents, right now I really can say that I am already welcome in the family..assuming as it may sound but i really felt like it.

Nothing beats the feeling of elation when you finally met the parents of the guy you love.., and not only that.., knowing that you belonged and you are accepted is the best.., You would feel more secure and assured even if you are not married yet right? especially if.., you knew that among his past girlfriend.., you were the only one he brought home to met the special people of his life.., well., that's what we call.., honor!! best wishes to both of you..=)

I haven't met my boyfriend's parents. It's because they don't know about me. My boyfriend still hasn't finalized his annulment. His parents of course know about it. He's been separated from his ex for a long time now. His parents are conservative. So are mine, but my parents know him but knows nothing about his pevious marriage. It's complicated, I know. Anyway, I imagine I'll be very scared to meet his parents. They are both straight up citizens and very religous. I think they will not like me. Considering the circumstances on how I came into their family. He's the rebellious one in the family. Maybe if they meet me they'll think I'm another one of his mistakes. And I'm no good for him because of how our relationship started. I'm glad you're getting along with your partner's folks, though. It's always a good thing if you're welcomed with open arms into the family of the one you love.

It must have been really hard for you.., looking forward on that day that you'll finally meet his parents.., your situation is really complicated.., and if i were in your shoes.., i will also feel scared.., but as long as you two love each other.., everything else should not matter.., though it's good to have his parents approval.., but if you don't get it.., don't allow it to put a gap in your relationship with him... good luck!
