Meeting the Parents Part 1

Friday, June 20, 2008
The joint parental meeting is tomorrow. The first parental meeting. To say I'm a little nervous is an understatment. I even made plans with a friend to head to Room Service to check out the store and go to lunch, and then just realized this morning that I have the parental lunch meeeting tomorrow. (Sorry Michelle. Let's do it later?)

We are taking both sets of parents out to lunch to meet each other for the first time. I figured lunch is perfect, right? I figured it's less pressure and less intoxication. After delaying it for months (maybe even a year), I'm finally OK with them meeting. Truth be told, I really don't care if they meet either way. The BF is comfortable with it. So I guess I have to drink the Kool-aid too. Besides, I've never been to the restaurant and it's gotten the seal of approval from the Cleveland Foodie.

I tried to find some funny commentary on the web from other people when their parents first met, but I couldn't find a damn thing. Nothing funny happened! Nothing? Not even a humorous YouTube video! Well, there's a f'ing sign if there ever was one.

Feel free to share your stories and here's to fun and interesting weekend to all!

I am meeting the lady's parents for the first time tonight. Why is everything dealing with parents such a production?

I met my ex's mom for the first time at Winking Lizard -- super relaxed over wings and beers. It definitely made the meeting easier. I then met the ENTIRE family on Thanksgiving. Godhelpme, that was anxiety!

My ex-fiance from a couple years ago, I met first met the parents during my early-20s "Hoochie" phase. Ha. They're all class and millionaires and Mel with her platinum blond hair and a strappy, backless dress shows up. Needless to say, we laughed about it years later, but they NEVER ONCE made me feel uncomfortable.

Ha, I can't wait to read about how it goes. :) I've alway been really lucky with it comes to the guy's parents. I'm pretty sure I stayed in my last long-term relationship a few months longer than I knew I should have, solely because I was like part of his family. Good luck!

All my boyfriend's family lives in Germany... and they don't speak any english at all... and I am meeting them for the first time this upcoming October. So, I am not really sure what to expect myself. But good luck!
