How do you know when it’s time to introduce your partner to your parents?
Introducing your significant other to your family is a big step. As a couple, the two of you are headed toward a solid, committed relationship. Before you make the decision to show your special boo off to your parents, Cupid has some tips you should take into consideration first:
1. Define your relationship: Do you think the relationship has the potential to be long-term? If you’re the type of person who breaks up with a partner if a family member doesn’t approve, you should introduce your love to your parents as soon as you get that, “Maybe this is really going to be something serious” feeling, but there’s no sense in urging a guy to meet your parents when you know in your heart he will end up just being a friend.
2. Discuss it with your partner: You might be ready to take the relationship to the next level, but your significant other may feel differently. Talk to your man about the possibility of him meeting your family and see how he reacts. If he’s a little hesitant, you may be moving too fast for him. If you rush him into something he¬† isn’t ready for, be prepared to call it quits sooner than you would like.
3. You’re thinking about marriage: If you can hear wedding bells ring in the near future, or you already have a ring on your finger, it’s definitely time to introduce your beau to your family. Your parents may freak out if they have to witness a wedding between you and a stranger!
