Bonding with Boyfriend's Family... HELP...
December 17, 2006 7:03am CST
my boyfriend has been asking me for months to go to their house to be with his family... i have been making excuses for months, honestly, they're nice people, i've met them several times, it's just that i'm not comfortable around them, you know the feeling of 'meeting the parents'... i'm not friendly and i don't get along with people easily and i know from experience that i won't get along with them that well... what do you think?

hey, you will have to tolerate them. Look, I still feel uncomfortable going around my in-laws 9and I've been married for years) but I still have to go sometimes for my hubby's sake. try to do it for your boyfriend. just be yourself. Afterall, your boyfriend is who you are dating not his family. just fo it for him.

i know the feeling but maybe you should do it for your bf sake? you dont know how many girls will kill to be in your place now!!! it's apparent that your bf cares and loves you so much that he desperately wants you to be closer with the family. i know it's going to be hard, but maybe you should try to be closer with them if you really love them...time will make you lose the uncomfortable feeling..trust me!
