For any man seriously in love with a woman, meeting her parents is the next big thing to do in the relationship. With this, he clearly gives the message that he is ready to take this relationship to the next level, and wants to spend his entire life with their darling daughter.
So boys, are you also thinking of something similar, but are totally nervous about it? Well, do not worry as we have something to prepare you well for the same. Here are a few types of parents your sweetheart might have, and also the tips to win their hearts.
#1. The strict parents
It is quite normal for this type of parents to get highly concerned about their daughter’s choice, as she might not be ‘mature enough’ by now, according to them. So, once you will be there, they will talk less and observe you more. What’s more? They might even try to test you hard by being rude to you.
How to impress them: As they like disciplined people, be on time for the meeting without fail. Dress well (preferably formals) and even try to impress them by talking about how you value discipline and punctuality (even if you don’t). And, just be patient even if they are not so nice to you. After all, it is totally worth facing that much for the woman of your dreams.
#2. The religious parents
They are god-fearing people and follow each and every ritual that their religion suggests them. And, they expect you to be the same. Not just that! They do not understand the concept of dating, as all they believe in is the institution of marriage.
How to impress them: If you believe in all the things that they say, it should not be very hard for you to impress them. And, if your beliefs are different than that of theirs, just make it a point not to be disrespectful towards their feelings.
#3. The weird parents
They are among the difficult ones to handle because of the awkward things they say or do. They are most likely to start conversations that would not make much sense. They can simply embarrass you by asking about your first date or any such thing. What’s more? You might even get to hear some funny incidents that your girl had during childhood. Needless to say, you will get to hear, “Mom, dad, please stop” from your girl quite a lot of times, as she would be the one to feel most embarassed.
How to impress them: Yes, they might do awkward things. But, do not ever be rude to them because like anyone else, they too are sensitive inside. And, maybe they are doing this just because even they are nervous and want you to like them.
#4. The ‘future-tense’ parents
Well, these ones are hardly interested in knowing what kind of a person you are today. Rather, they are more concerned about what would you be like a few years later. No matter how big an achiever you might have been throughout your life, they would just not be assured that their daughter will have a secured future with you.
How to impress them: Well, it is not as difficult as it might appear to be. Just consider it to be one of the job interviews that you have had in your life. And, make sure that you do not miss out telling them about any of your accomplishments, your future plans, savings plans, etc.
While you get busy impressing her parents, don’t forget to keep her happy as well.
#5. The liberal parents
These are the coolest kind of parents and probably the ones you would definitely love to meet. They understand the younger generation is different from theirs and are completely fine with that. And not just that! They even make efforts to think and act like the young ones. That is why, they easily accept you the way you are. And, they are so much fun that you might even want to hang out with them quite often.
How to impress them: Bring out the ‘fun’ side of your personality. Crack jokes and make yourself feel at home with them. Take initiatives and be the host. They will surely end up appreciating you.
So boys, are you ready to take the big test? Well, at the end, we would simply give you a small piece of advice. Just be yourself and let your lady love’s parents know what their daughter means to you. And, do not feel bad even if they be a little rude to you. After all, they are just trying to make sure if you will keep their daughter happy.
