  • All depends. I've had girlfriends I introduced early on and others I didn't introduce till 4 months in. I don't want my family getting attached to a girl when I'm not even fully sure how much I like her yet. If I'm saying "i love you" it's pretty solid

  • When you start telling your parents about your SO and they become curious, and you SO is comfortable with meeting them. . . then it is the time!

  • No time limit as such. Just do it whenever you are ready or you think it's most appropriate.

  • If I figure out how to get a guaranteed 2 way ticket to hell and back, then I'll introduce her to them. Otherwise, a picture will have to do.

  • This could go down in so many ways. Are you sure you want to introduce him/her to your parents? Or do you want to meet his/her parents? I am no expert, but aren't couples supposed to avoid their actual/potential in-laws?

    To answer your question, I would say it depends on factors like the parents themselves (how strict/accepting they are), how close the couple is, what the future plans are, how much you actually want in-laws (or spouse's parents) in your life, etc.

  • Depends on your parents. I would be comfortable introducing any girl to my parents because they are pretty chill. But I've seen people keep relationships a secret from their parents because they are afraid 😨 of their parents reaction. Also I think it would depend on your gf/bf and if they meet your parents expectations.

  • I think you'll just feel it. It'll just feel like the right person and right time, and that's when you'll go introduce that person to your parents. It's really hard to give a specific time.

  • If we are getting serious, 4-6 months should be enough.

  • I think a good 3 to 4 months is good then you know good enough about them to talk about them at a diner party and know it should not break up soon

  • Well mine are dead and it's terrifying meeting them for the first time (rotten, stinky and raisin eyes) but I usually wait at least a month or two.
