  • I dated the guy for 6 months and was never introduces to his father that he lives with, I was told it was for my own good. My friend didnt want to have to deal with a million questions from his dad. Really? I just felt like it was an insult to me. Part of the many hundreds of reasons I broke it off

  • You meet the boyfriend's parents when he decides he wants them to meet you. That was a really good sign in my day, because it meant the guy was serious enough about you that he wanted his mom and dad's approval of the girl he was considering for marriage. There is not set time limit, and it's all up to the guy.

  • when it gets serious.

    hubs parents live on the other side of the contry so I didnt get to meet them until we had been dating for a while.

  • it was about 5 or 6 months before I met his parents but that was because we were away at school and he lived in NJ. He was on the baseball team so as soon as his parents came down for a game I met them and spent the weekend with them but that was the soonest we could meet. I think I actually met 1 of his sisters first and this is parents and then a year later his other sister. We were in college and weren't sure how it was going to work out so we weren't too stressed about it.
