  • Only if you'd like it to move into a committed future, then yes, introduce him.

  • Nope, that doesn't sound like too fast at all.. If you guys have been together for a year!! Wow, I must have moved REALLY fast! I introduced my husband (whom I have been with for 7 years now) to my family like a couple months after dating!

  • If you've been seeing him for a year, I don't think it's too soon to introduce him to your family.

  • No, not too soon at all!

    Kind of too long IMO.

  • Wow. Maybe it just has to do with a culture thing? I'm not sure haha, I'm Mexican American and my parents have met all my boyfriends the first time we go out on a date haha. I'm serious on that one too. When they would come and pick me up they would have to come in and meet my parents. Just a tradition, so far it hasn't freaked any guy I have dated before. But then again they were also Mexican American haha, my parents met my husband the same day he asked me out. So no I don't think you are moving too fast.

  • No way a year is a pretty long time.
    My mom met my boyfriend when we first started dating. He came to my family Christmas and it had only been 8 months..

  • No, a year is kind of long to wait IMO. If I was the s/o I'd feel slighted that it took that long.

  • I don't think it's too soon so long as things are going well with you two. In fact, just for meeting I'd say it's fine after a few months.

  • I think it's just the right time. My ex husband and I waited a year. I had a great relationship with my in-laws. They trusted that i was sincere about their son.
