    Been dating my girlfriend for over a year now and taking her and my nan out for dinner. I'm not usually great at things to say, so how can I keep the conversation flowing?

    Id suggest just talk as you normally would. Let your nan and girlfriend get to know eachother. Conversation will flow then.

    Okay that sucks Not sure what advice I can offer really apart from if you love eachother and she makes you happy, your parents should accept her.

    I know it must be hard though

    We do love each other so much, like we are constantly wanting to see each other. Atm I can only see her on Sundays and sometimes during the week a day or two. It's stressing us both out. I told her that I would tell them soon but it's just very difficult. And my family is stubborn and very judgemental

    Old people have a lot of conversational experience, needless to say. Remember that, because she'd your nan, she's been through this before with your mum/dad and aunts and uncles and the gfs/bfs they've had.

    I wouldn't worry...it'll just naturally flow when you don't force anything.
