1

Be Honest

One of the very most important ways to impress your boyfriend’s parents is to be honest. Don’t lie about your age, your background, or your family. Don’t lie about your job, or your party nights out on the town. His parents know how to use Google, and they’ll stalk your Facebook page, I promise!

2

Wear Something Appropriate

Next, be sure you where something appropriate when going to meet your guy’s family. Don’t wear something you’d wear out with your friends for a night on the town, or a hot date with your guy. Nothing too far above the knee- his mother will notice- and keep that neckline somewhat higher. No need for a turtleneck, but she will pay attention!

3

Keep Your Makeup Clean

It’s perfectly fine to wear makeup of course, but don’t expect to win over your boyfriend’s parents with flashy eye shadow, bright pink lip color, and too much blush. Clean makeup is ideal here, and looks pretty and simple.

***

Aiming for a classic and subtle look is more advisable when meeting your boyfriend's parents for the first time. Consider using neutral tones that enhance your features without overshadowing your natural beauty. Foundation should match your skin tone flawlessly, mascara should be applied with a light touch, and lips can be coated with a gloss or a lipstick in a soft, understated shade. Remember, confidence often comes from feeling comfortable in your own skin, so choose makeup that makes you feel both beautiful and self-assured.

4

Be Polite

You should also be polite when you meet your boyfriend’s parents of course. Smile, show interest in their family, and despite your nerves, try to find an appropriate conversation to discuss. Oh, and whatever you do, don’t forget to compliment his mom if she cooked! She’ll love you forever!

5

Speak Fondly of Your Job

Even if you hate your job, don’t bash it. You don’t have to lie, as you could always say you’re in the market for something new, but at least speak fondly of your job, or just the fact you’re grateful you have one. No need to bring up that annoying co-worker or pushover boss. Be positive!

6

Don’t Overdo It

Be sure you don’t overdo it when it comes to being nice. Brown nosing isn’t always a good thing. You should offer to help do dishes if you’re at their home, and of course compliment his mom on something if you want, but don’t overdo it. They might see you as fake, and your boyfriend will think you’re odd for it.

7

Don’t Kiss Him in Front of Them

Be sure the first time you meet your boyfriend’s parents that you aren’t overly affectionate towards him, without him making the first move. If he starts to kiss you, fine, but don’t make this a time for makeout sessions. His parents will not be impressed!

8

Don't Wear Too Much Perfume

Whatever you do, don't overkill the perfume either. It's not only tacky, but many people are also very sensitive to fragrances, and that will not go over well. This can make you more of an irritation than a charm to be around.

9

Calm and Collected

Whatever you do, act as calm as you can. It sends a sign you're a peaceful person who is easy to get along with, and it also makes them more comfortable around you. Don't interrupt out of nervousness either. They'll see it as rude and not anxiety. Be sure you're as calm and collected as can be, even though I know it's hard. The best way to do this is to just be yourself!

These are some pretty simple, but also sure-fire ways to impress your boyfriend’s parents that I know will work like a charm. If you have some tips of your own, be sure to share them with me. What’s your favorite way to impress your boyfriend’s parents?
