    Any advice. Helpful stories or even disasters you'd like to share let me know.

    I'm thinking of introducing a guy to my family but not sure how to do it.

    What were your experiences letting someone meet your parents?

    well it's just my dad, but typically it goes something like this, bring him over for a family do, shag him in my old bedroom, and we have breakfast with my bros next morning, my family isn't easily derailed.

    Well, my mom has alzheimers, so when I introduced her to LingLang, my super sexy Asian mantoy, every few minutes she would rudely ask "who's the waitress?"
    No whenever we visit her LingLang dresses like a French prostitute, which makes both my mom and me quite happy.

    After a nasty slip/ fall at work, I was at home recovering from lower back strain. The meniscus in my left knee popped. I've never experienced such pain!!

    Even though he had just finished a 13 hour night shift and had been awake for over 24 hours, my man rushed over, carried/dragged my 6-1 240 pound quivering carcass down the stairs, out of my house and to the hospital.

    He sat & waited on me, brought me to my Mother's ground level house for recovery, sat down, sipped tea and made small talk with my mother, meeting her for the first time, while I moaned & groaned on the sofa next to him.

    He made the 30 mile round trip every day for 3 weeks to check on me and comfort me, making more polite chit chat talk with my mother.

    Almost 5 years later we are still close friends and occassional bed buddies.

    He ain't perfect....but (so far) he's still a "keeper".

    I think I would start something like this:

    Mom and dad, this is Joe, Joe, these are my parents. Then let the conversation carry itself.

    I think I would avoid something like this:

    Mom and dad, I'd like you to meet Joe, the guy that I have sex with every night and Joe, these are my parents.

    Good luck!

    My bf's parents met me when he came out to them, and his step mom turned to me and said, did you make him this way?

    Lulz.

    They got over it fast and accepted me fully, but it was awkward at the time.

    "Hey mom and dad! This is the guy whose dick I'm sucking! Any questions?" icon_biggrin.gif

    Seriously, I informed my parents about my bf after several phone calls. Told him how we met, what he's like, blah blah yada yada! Afterwards, they were looking forward to meeting him and now, he and my mom are BFF.

    Didn't you just come out?

    That's really exciting.

    How are you planning to do it?


    Yeah I move fast huh? lol.
    Well i'm planning on just introducing him as a friend tonight and see what they say. They already know i'm gay so i'm guessing they will figure it out.

    heh. I actually have this coming up pretty soon I think. My parent's haven't met anyone I've officially told them was my boyfriend before. They have met a few "friends" though. Not sure if they knew exactly what was going on but I'm pretty sure they guessed.

    I kind of tend to keep things to myself and, of course, my friends, but I don't necessarily let my parents into a relationship unless I'm really serious and there is a good chance that we will be together for a while.

    Yourename2000 and I, I'm convinced, were separated at birth.

    I've finally come out to my family but I only have an exboyfriend to threaten the traditional family dinners with.

    We broke up six months ago. He might come back. Those Nortel stock certificates in the closet might also suddenly shoot up in value. I dumped his hot 32 year old construction-stud ass because of his non-commital issues, so it's possible. Anyway...

    I was born very young and my very old mother is in a rest home, waiting for a berth in a nursing home. I'm never really sure if she knows who she's talking to when we're on the phone. If I hear my name in the conversation then I know I'm still in her Will.

    My advice is to use DaveyWavey's strategy. If it's going to be a shock to them, bring him over as your 'buddy.' Let the family get to know him and like him as your bro. Then start with the siblings and cousins and aunts and uncles and work your way into the center of your life: your parents.

    "(Instert relative's name) there's something I've been wanting to talk to you about for a while. You've met my friend (the boyfriend's name) and I want you to know that he's more than just a friend. He's actually my boyfriend and we're planning to spend our lives together. We really want you to be part of our family and support us as we fight for our rights to marry."

    OK I threw in the politics at the end for fun. Move to Canada and you can leave out that part :-)

    I just invited my family to my home for our family traditional christmas eve brunch... and my "WHITE" boyfriend (at the time) met my father and 7 siblings, and extended family...

    I think it is important to introduce your family to boyfriend. I think its important to your family AND your relationship.

    I am a parent, and I hope my children view me for more than just money.

    I am headng to my son's college this weekend to meet a girl he has been dating for the last few months. He called and asked if I wanted to come and hang out this weekend...there was someone he wanted me to meet. That may be a good approach. Do not make it a huge deal, and your family may follow suit,...

    OMG! icon_eek.gif "Beer Pong"....like when one guy lays on his stomach, somebody else enemas up a whole bottle of beer up his ass, and then has to guzzle as much of it as he can while the guy laying down squeezes it out, like a fountain? icon_eek.gif

    Because that's sick man....in college, it's fine (of course) but first time meeting the new BF's dad, and you pull out "let's play beer pong". icon_eek.gif I'm amazed he took you home to meet the parents at all, considering your tastes. icon_neutral.gif


    Bahahahaha...
    I forgot you people on the West Coast play it a bit different, and I don't think I'll be playing beer pong with you anytime soon icon_eek.gif
