How long do you wait until boyfriend/girlfriend meets parents? Do you usually wait until you know you're both in love, to introduce one another to your parents? Or do you--or have you--done it slightly earlier on?
you don't have to be in love but usually when its a serious relationship, and it depends on what age you are. in high school its more casual and necessary to have you parents meet the girlfriends/boyfriends. but when your older your parents are only involved in the serious business and you wouldn't want to constantly bring a new person, your parents will not like that.
Personally I would wait until I truly like her and we're a serious couple. No point in introducing someone you've known for 2 weeks...might as well introduce your co-workers and all the strangers on the street you've said "hi" to.
If and when the relationship gets serious. I don't mind if they meet casually but overall I'm very iffy about introducing girls to my family, my relationships are my business and I really don't feel like sharing every single girl I have ever liked to be judged and scrutinized by my genetic benefactors.
Usually when we're in love or when I come over to hang out with my boyfriend. Usually, I let the guy decide, it's just less for me to worry and think about. Also, it shows his indication to get serious, if he takes you to see his parents, he wants a real relationship. Also, it depends on what type of parents he has. If he has prudent parents, then you might want to wait longer, but if they're lax, anytime would be fine. Hope this helps!
Well it depeded on the guy and me. When I realized he was into me and I was really into him, that's when I decided was a good time. You don't have to be in love to do, but that may be how you were raised. It doesn't have to be extremly serious to do it, but a week into dating might scare him away.
nah, I just wait until it feels normal to: natural. I've only ever brought one guy home to meet my parents, because he was like my best friend and I wanted him at all my family things -thanksgiving, christmas so it just felt totally normal to include him and do the introductions...
For me because my family is very traditional so I wanted wait to introduce him to my parents.
With him he originally wanted me to go to his high school reunion with him in another city & in turn visit his parents and extended family at the same time, this was supposed to be 4 months into the relationship. I ended up meeting his parents two months into the relationship instead because he had an accident and I had to called them so they could fly down and make sure he was okay. He is very close with his family though, which is why he wanted me to meet them sooner than I wanted to.
Personally I feel like you should introduce them when you feel ready, it doesn't matter if you're in love or not. Because what if you're in love and your parents don't approve of the guy, then you're kind of in a sticky situation. To some people meeting parents isn't a big deal & to others it is, so I say wait until you're ready.
Meeting parents is to much pressure for me on both ends. I don't want to parade boyfriend after boyfriend to them. I wouldn't introduce my boyfriend to my parents until marriage was a very real possibility in our near future.
not really...u dnt hv to be and love to let'em go meet ur parents...ts better f t wz before...cuz that would show f he/she z ready for you and ready to do what t takes...and parents would always tell you wts wrong with them...and f ur and love you wouldn't even care to lsn
Well with my first and only boyfriend, I was 13 (still am lol) and my parents really wanted to meet him and his parents really wanted to meet me. So we both met each others parents really early in the 'relationship'.
I dunno, with my current guy, our parents knew us already before we started dating because we work together so we see each other around a lot and say hi... ha ha. Now that we're in a relationship, it was no problem meeting them right away.
Generally though, I would wait at least 3 months, or at least until the relationship is more serious and is likely to be long-term.
It was never really a big deal to me, we met when we met. It was more of a, want to hang at my house? Then when they got there, they met my parents, and vice versa. Never made it a big deal, and so it usually wasn't awkward or anything.
