How to meet your boyfriends parents

Extracts from this document...


How to...meet your partners parents for the first time Meeting your partner's parents for the first time has to be the most daunting part of your relationship. Well, apart from when the time comes to say those three small words. In preparation it must be taken into account that dressing smartly is essential. Stay away from that t-shirt your mate brought you for your birthday implying you're sex mad. Also, for the ladies, cleavage on show is a big no as you want to try and avoid the embarrassment of having your chest being talked to rather than your face over dinner.

Leave out making remarks about one of the contestants having a huge birth mark on their face or having a lazy eye as you have not yet met the rest of the family. Who knows what weird and wonderful features Auntie June may have. It is essential not to outstay your welcome on the first visit. If there are any signs of the mother getting her pyjamas on, then you know it's time to make a quick exit. On departure make sure you once again thank them both for a 'very nice' meal and thank them for letting you in their house. Even now, public affection is still not on the cards so you must at least wait until you have closed the front door and the nightmare is over. ?? ?? ?? ?? ...read more.
