Cupid’s Advice:

No matter who you are, meeting your partner’s family is probably one of the most nerve wracking things you’ll ever have to do. Even if you know that the family who raised the amazing person you’re with must be the nicest people on the planet, being nervous comes naturally. First impressions are important, so it’s best to prepare as much as you can before meeting your partner’s family:

1. The family tree: Before meeting your partner’s family, ask your partner some questions about them, especially if you’re meeting extended family and not just Mom, Dad, and siblings. Hearing some names beforehand will help you to feel familiar upon arrival, and some background won’t hurt either. Who is on what side of the family? What ages are your partners’ siblings? Get some info.

2. Contribute: Most people consider showing up to a first meeting with the family empty handed a mistake. First impressions are important, and it’s beneficial to be as polite as possible. Bring your significant other’s family flowers or a dessert. What your bring does not have to be extremely personal or a gift wrapped present, just bringing something to show you made an effort can go a long way.

3. Take a deep breath: Above all, just be yourself. It is worth it to prepare, but there is only so much you can do. Put on some nice clothes, grab a small gift, review names of family members, and just breathe.
