So you meet "the one" and it all goes swimmingly until it’s time to meet the parents of the object of your affection. This little meeting has all sorts of interesting complications, but the bottom line is, you want them to like you because you like their son or daughter and you see a future together and well, it is the right thing to do. But none the less, its nerve-wracking and you would rather just get it over and done with. So where to start for a successful meet and greet?
1. Planning Ahead
It’s always a good idea to get as much information about the people you are meeting before hand, preferably from your other half – as it is probably the most reliable. If not, you might be in for a treat.
Find out what subjects are a no-no, what they like, what they don’t like, what they do or did for a living and get a general feel for the people they are. Find out about their interests, hobbies, any travels they may have taken – recent ones are good – and ask about things like sporting interests, talents and that kind of thing.
