How do you make a good first impression on your partner’s parents?

Cupid’s Advice:

You’re meeting the parents — don’t freak! Here are some ways on how to make a good impression when you first meet your partner’s parents:

1. Be yourself: Don’t try to be someone you are not because that never turns out well. Be honest about who you are as a person and your interests. After all, only you can play the part of yourself perfectly.

2. Be appropriate: Be sure to censor yourself, especially if your partner’s parents are old fashioned and traditional. Don’t dress as if you were going out to a club and don’t curse like a truck driver. Act the way you would want your partner to behave upon meeting your parents.

3. Stay calm: Breathe. Be calm, cool and collected. Parents are still regular everyday people. You want to impress them, but they are not going to interview you or nitpick everything that you say. Plus, your partner will be there with you to guide you.
