When you should agree to meet the parents.

When should you agree to meet their folks?

Well if your finding yourself asking this question then you’re not alone. Many people ask me when exactly to meet the folks and I always say the same thing:

“When you are comfortable with the idea”.


Never feel pressured into it, that’s my advice. Sometimes relationships move so fast tat we almost feel out of control, and this is bad! Get control of the relationship and YOU decide when you feel it’s right for YOU.

As a general rule I wait for at least 3 months before the introduction is made.

But something else to comprehend, and that is not to place too much emphasis on ‘meeting the folks’. Remember that it isn’t a job interview and they will just be happy for their daughter/son if they are happy… with you.

Obviously when you do meet them, best behaviour is the order of the day, but don’t try too hard. You are you and they are not the ones that have to date you!
