How do you prepare to meet your partnerâ€™s parents?
Meeting your partnerâ€™s parents is a big deal; sometimes their feelings about you can give your mate the final seal of approval … or at worst, denial. Â Cupid has some advice:
1. Dress appropriately: When it comes to meeting your mateâ€™s parents, especially for the first time, itâ€™s always best to wear something respectable and not so revealing. Â You want them to focus on getting to know you instead of giving a bad first impression as soon as you set foot outside of the car. Â Think classy instead of tacky.
2. Be social: Sure, meeting the parents for the first time can cause you to become a bit nervous, but make sure to remain calm and cool. Â Ask questions and casually keep the conversation going to show them that youâ€™re just as interested in getting to know them as they are in getting to know you.
3. Be you: Thereâ€™s nothing worse than being fake, and itâ€™s pretty obvious when youâ€™re doing it. Â The important thing parents want to know and see when they meet you is why their son or daughter fell in love with you. Â Be honest and confident.
