  • Introducing your boyfriend to your parents

    Like how do you start a good conversation? Will you do it in public like restaurant or will you do it in private like your parents' home?

    Just introduce him to your folks the way you would introduce a friend and let your parents lead the conversation. For me, it doesn't really matter where you're going to introduce him to them. What's important is that it's not that noisy so that all of you can hear each other

      My boyfriend met my dad and one of my brothers at one of the birthday parties that we attended last fall but I plan to make the formal introduction to a restaurant in a formal dinner with my family members. Thanks for bringing it up.

      You go, girl! There's nothing wrong in the resto scene but it will be more intimate if you do it in your parent's house. I think it's more formal that way.

      Yes! The place should not be noisy. So, I guess that the home would be the best place. In that way, everyone would be comfortable except the man who may feel a bit of uneasiness.

    If you want everyone to act or behave properly, I would suggest to do it in a restaurant. As for what you guys are going to talk about, maybe the basic what he does for a living, etc...would be fine

      Is it still okay for parents to react negatively when they perceived that the boyfriend whom their daughter had introduced to them failed on their standards?

      Are you anticipating that there would be some dramas if you would introduce your boyfriend at your home?

      I think that simple things as topics would do. It is not necessary to have his biography to be laid down on that introduction dinner.

    I think that a public place would be a good venue for the introduction. I guess that most people do that stuff. It would be nice to go over it on a dinner on a restaurant. A simple introduction to your parents would do.

      I would say: "Oh, this is my boyfriend." That's it. The conversation would go on until it comes to end.

      Sometimes, it gets awkward eating in a restaurant while having to answer some queries made by other people.

      A public place where the environment is not too silent and not too noisy. It would be awkward to tell stories when the other people near your table could hear everything that you say. Of course, you would have a hard time hearing each other on noisy environments.

    Is it okay not to introduce my boyfriend to my parents that quickly? I need to make sure that the man whom I would introduce to my parents is a worthy person. Why would I introduce someone to my parents when he would be gone after three months? I think that I would introduce my boyfriend when I am already sure that he would gonna stay for long.

      You don't really need to introduce every single person that you're dating to your parents immediately. As a personal rule, I would let the relationship last for about six months before I go and introduce him to my parents.

    Can I select a very fancy restaurant as a venue for the introduction? In that way, all people would be well-behaved. I do not think that my parents would not react harshly should they not want the man that I would introduce to them. Lol.

      Well if you have the money for it, go ahead and have that meet up at a fancy restaurant. Need to be sure to inform your folks if the place has a dress code for customers. They might end up under dressed for that restaurant

    I guess I would just bring him home one night and surprise my parents. I would just tell them that I brought my boyfriend, and they are free to meet him. Yep, just like that. A simple as possible. No need to go out and bring everyone out on a fancy restaurant as that would be just a waste of money.

      How long have you been together before you need to introduce your boyfriend? For me, we need to be together for more than a year before we could go and meet my parents for introduction.

        When is the right time to introduce our boyfriends? Are you a type of person who would quickly introduce your partner even if you have just started with the relationship?

          A good question. For me, I need to have him as a boyfriend for at least a year before I would introduce them to my parents.

        I would only introduce my boyfriend to my parents when we are about to get married already. That is, all boyfriends would remain to be just plain boyfriends and would not be introduced to my parents.

          Well, I think that this process is also good. Your parents might be confused if you keep introducing a new boyfriend now and then. LOL.
