If you thought that finding the person you want to spend the rest of your life with was an accomplishment and your job ends right there, wait till you have to introduce your parents and your partner for the first time. There are a million worries, doubts and anxieties that cloud your mind and remain there until the meeting actually happens. It could go great or turn out to be a total disaster.
So, here are the top most things you think about before setting up the formal meeting that most of the times turn out to be true!
What if he comes wearing his loose and shabby trousers with an unkempt beard? What if she decides to wear her shortest dress today of all days?
And, then explaining the important of the entire institution of marriage!
If they do not like something your parents said, how would your parents react to it?
Like how you were not alone on your Goa trip, and many more of those ‘alone trips’ and were always accompanied by your love.
Or, eat with his mouth open, dropping food all over his clothes?
That is so personal! What if she/he forgets and calls you all that in front of your PARENTS?
Now that is not a very good first impression to start with, is it? It would totally ruin the whole mood.
Because then, it will be only politics that would be spoken about and the real aim of introducing the two will die a sad death!
And start giving their inputs, unwanted if we may add, about how your partner looks, eats, walks and whatnot. Not to forget the torture they would do to your partner by asking silly questions.
Don’t all parents do that? But not today, please Lord! Just spare my partner all the pep talk focusing on me!
The real story? Hell no! You now realise that you should have warned your partner beforehand and cooked up a fake story just in case.
And, that is what younger siblings are best at; grilling your partner in every possible way, making them uncomfortable and nervous either knowingly or otherwise.
To listen to all that is going on, making it public to the entire society within the next few hours!
Well, you do want that to happen eventually, but not that quickly! After all, how can they like him/her more than they like you, right?
Well, whether you are anxious, scared, nervous or not, you have to introduce them some day if you two are really serious about your relationship. So, let all your worries fly off the window, and face the situation with a light and relaxed mood. Have faith and everything will work out just the way you planned it to be!
