Meeting GF's parents for the first timeWatch
Don’t talk to them like they’re your friends though, but more with authority and respect. Potentially if you go on to marrying her, the first impression is crucial, not only that but the vibes need to be in place.
Carry yourself how you normally would do. If they don’t like you for you then at least you know that instead of them liking a fake version of you. You can progress outside of your shell as you become more comfortable.
Your GF will probably be trying to make things calm and ask for your input in some things. Speak up with confidence and be proud that you are calling the girl besides you your Girlfriend. Don’t do all that mouse stuff. Be about your business and they’ll treat you like you know your stuff.
Take a small gift; flowers (if going to their house and not out somewhere for a meal, too awkward to carry), chocolates, nice biscuits.
Get some background from your girlfriend about their jobs, hobbies, holidays. You can then use that in conversation as you need to be asking questions as well as talking about yourself.
If there's coffee or a meal, offer to help tidy up or do the washing up.
Does anyone have any tips? i'm super nervous as i have never met parents before of someone i am dating and have no idea where to start like how to even address her mum or dad.
