When a serious relationship goes a step further and when you begin to talk marriage, meeting the parents of your partner becomes obvious. As important as it is to meet the parents, it is just as scary. You can be all nerves and sweat trying to make impress the parents1 of your partner and trying to make them like you. If you are scared you are going to make a fool out of yourself in front of them, then simply keep in mind the following advice that will surely make your lover’s parents adore you.

Be Easy Going

You are all nerves at this point sitting across the couch from them, but I beg you to please calm down. Take a breath, a deep one and realize they too are parents much like yours. With that in mind don’t be all formal and a proper around them, ease out a bit and do and say things that come naturally to you. This will ease the air and not make it tense.

Have A Funny Bone

Stuck ups suck, so don’t be one. If the family of your partner is welcoming you enough to be comfortable enough to make jokes around you and perhaps even one or two on you, then be a sport and play along. Don’t get all offended and try and show them that you are above their lame jokes.

Remember Your Manner

Remember all those times mom told you to close your mouth and chew your food? Put it to good use here. Just be respectable and have manners when in the company of your partner’s parents. Help around the kitchen if going over for dinner and help anywhere else you can as well. Be polite and calm as well.

Don’t Pretend

It might seem like a good idea to pretend to be the perfect girl in front of his/her parents, to behave all cultured and say all the appropriate things, but in reality it is a very bad idea. For you will constantly be busy in holding up your façade that it will become evident to smart parents that you are probably hiding something from them and make them question your intentions. So just be you!

Flatter Them

Before meeting parents of your girlfriend or boyfriend know one thing that a little bit of flattery goes a long way. Seriously! Laugh at their jokes, agree with their statements, bring them small presents even. Just remember to keep it on the down low and not make it too evident.

Show Them You Love Their Baby

In the end all parents what their children to be happy with a partner who genuinely loves them and is not likely to use and toss them away like tissue paper. That is precisely why you need to make your love’s parents believe just how much you love and respect their child and show them that you are never going to break their heart or throw them to the curb.

So are you ready to make your partner’s parents fall in love with you?
