    then get off my case
    No, you stop giving ridiculous advice based on 'If i was OP' since you dont know about the situation given and only seem to talk about yourself.

    No. My Dad is reasonably wealthy so I don't know if that intimidates him. My boyfriend is from a working class background but he has a good job (he earns more than me) for a well known company.

    You may have hit the nail on the head there.

    I'm sure somebody has already said this and I've just been too lazy to go through this whole thread. Meeting a girlfriend's parents is an extremely scary scary thought. I'm sure your parents are delightful wonderful people to be with and around but it's extremely scary for a guy to meet his girlfriend's parents for the first time. If a girl's parents don't like you they can destroy the relationship and make the boyfriend's life a living hell. I think you should give him another 6 months and then sit down and have a serious conversation with him. If he still doesn't want to meet them then you should tell him if he doesn't meet them you'll break up with him. If you don't feel that strongly for him then end it now.

    Tell him to pack his bags and leave. you don't need a boyfriend when you have a daddy... unless you have daddy issues.

    I'm sorry but you don't wait a year and a half to meet the parents

    Update: i spoke to my boyfriend about it last night. I told him it was bothering me and he said he'll meet my Dad when he's next in town.
