Let's be perfectly honest, meeting your girlfriend's parents for the first time can be pretty intimidating. Your performance will be judged and this first impression of you will color their opinion of you for some time, fairly or unfairly. If you make a good first one Cheap Davon Godchaux Jersey , then you'll be in for smooth sailing. If things don't quite go as planned (or hoped) then you will have to depend on time to wear away that first impression and replace it with a more accurate portrait of who you are. Here are some tips on making that first encounter a good experience for everyone.

Let them have home-field advantage

Given the choice, you might opt for a neutral location like a restaurant the first time you meet her parents, but the parents usually pick and they usually pick their own house. If you're from out of town and are actually staying at their house, it should go without saying that you should stay in a seperate room from your girlfriend. You might think her parents are "cool with it" if you two share a room Cheap Matt Haack Jersey , and they might actually be, but it's best not to anyway just to avoid making anyone the least bit uncomfortable and avoid creating underlying tensions.

* When you meet them on their own home turf it puts them in their comfort zone. This will make it much easier to leave a good impression, since there are no initial difficulties with the setting.

Prepare for conversation!

A huge mistake that a lot of guys make is thinking that they can talk to a girlfriend's parents like they do to their girlfriend. Her parents are less likely to be forgiving if the conversation grinds to a halt, though.

* Find out what professional fields her parents are in. Find out other basic stuff in the family background Cheap T.J. McDonald Jersey , like what her brothers and sisters do for a living. Make sure you find out where her dad went to college (if he did) and any hobbies either of her parents pursue. Once you find out, do a little research on what you find out if you are not familiar with the area. You don't have to strike up a conversation about it as if you're interested (unless you really are interested) but the goal here is to know enough so you can ask some smart questions that have long answers (which you will also hopefully understand).

* Until you know them better, keep away from controversial topics of conversation like politics and religion. Taking the wrong stand could set you up for life here!

The Event

There are a few things you can do to make sure her parents are predisposed towards accepting you.

* At their house: Get ready to do some chores. Don't wait to be asked. It's little things that really matter here; if the garbage can is at the curb, bring it in. If there is a newspaper on the doorstep Cheap Akeem Spence Jersey , give it to the parents on entry into the house. Offer.
