I've been in a relationship with my girlfriend for 2 months now but I've yet to tell my parents. I don't know but I feel embarrassed probably because they used to tease me about girls. How should I go about this?

You should be confident and direct. There's no need to feel embarassed about something that is important to you and makes you happy. Just start with a conversation confidently and I'm sure everything will come naturally with the flow. Best of luck!

Literally just tell them, it isnt a big deal and the longer you put it off the likelier the chance your gf will take offence at you hiding her and being embarrassed to acknowledge she exists to your parents for no good apparent reason

Just calmly tell them, don’t make a big deal out of it. Not a lot else you can do.

I’d actually disagree with all of the posts above.

I would say that if you want to make it private until further notice then make sure you do so. There must be a reason that you haven’t habituated courage to do so and I think that’s mainly due to the clarity and also perhaps how unsupportive your parents are.

Definitely give it some time.
