Well... I don't know if they will like him or not. I haven't introduced him to my parents yet. I'm afraid that they will dislike him. We have almost been dating for 2 years in secret. What if my parents don't like him? Will I have to break up with them because they say so?
I'n really bad anxiety about this topic. What would you do if your parents hated your partner?

It's for you to decide who you date, not your parents. You are thinking of your whole future, not just of a short term relationship. It's not a nice thing to contemplate, but you and your guy will still be together when they are long gone. Don't compromise your future happiness because your parents dislike someone. Dig your heels in and be adamant. This is YOUR guy. If they have an issue, it's their problem to deal with it. This isn't being disrespectful to your parents. You are exercising your right to chose your own destiny.
It actually swings the other way. They should be happy for you both. They should be pleased you have found someone to care about, and more importantly, someone who cares about you.
Take care, stay safe!!2

Maybe try and casually bring it up one day and ask what they would do if they potentially didn't like someone that you're dating and see what they say. I did this and the parent I was most worries about - my dad - told me that realistically he's not going to be too thrilled no matter who I'm with but he's not going to be a jerk or say anything to me unless he thinks the dude is dangerous.
Ever since then I haven't been nervous about bringing a date to meet my parents because I already know how they're going to act0
