    Or any other term you would rather for your man icon_biggrin.gif

    I've yet to experience this myself, but how does one go about introducing a special man to one's own parents? How long should one wait until the big meet up happens?

    Feel free to detail your experiences about how it's done! icon_smile.gif

    I was in a three year relationship with someone and never met his parents. And they lived close to us.

    I don't have any parents so that possibility is off the table.

    I would think that a dinner in a public place would be ideal. Sometime after you meet your partner for the first time but before you move in together.

    I don't think straight guys introduce with an adjective so why should gays?

    Broseph saidMy mom was calling my boyfriend of several years my "friend." She also made us sleep in separate beds when we visited (as IF).icon_cry.gif

    My partner's sister would call me his friend until finally he told her, listen, this is his name, we live together, he's my partner. LOL Now she refers to me by name (live 3000 miles away).

    Didn't introduce my bf to my parents (they're dead) but to my ex-wife. It was cool, very pleasant and now, we're all good friends and see each other all the time. I'm sure it was a little awkward for my partner and a little for me too but it's like meeting anyone new.

    I don't know how I'm going to do it, but it will be interesting because he's of another race and younger than any of their grandchildren. Leave it to me to upset their apple cart yet again. icon_lol.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

    My mother asked to meet my bf after we had been seeing each other for a few months. We went to my parents for pizza one night.

    I met his entire family on the same day. It was someone's birthday I think.

    It really wasn't a big deal. He has an older gay brother and his mother is living with a woman so it probably would be more awkward being straight around there.

    My (now ex)bf and I had been dating for about 2 months. First I met his parents when I was staying at his house for the weekend and he got a call saying his already really sick grandfather had some kind of relapse and was taken to the hospital. He was in no state so I drove him there and awkwardly met almost the whole family.

    Then, a month later I got into a car accident and was sent to the hospital and he and my parents both rushed there and just so happen to get there at the same time. They kind of had to introduce themselves because I was so doped up.

    My word of advice, everyone in the hospital is usually so worried about the health of the patient that they don't care who you bring icon_lol.gif

    The first time I introduced a b.f. to my parents, they at first gave him a two second icy glare before putting on a smile and shaking hands in the foyer of their house. The grandparents were much more elegant and gracious about it, since they had gay friends and were at ease with them.

    Definitely wait until the relationship is solid, at least 5 months. You don't want to introduce him to your parents and then tell them you broke up the next week. If there's any doubts to longevity, then wait.

    My parents were dead before I had a serious gay relationship so it was never done. Kind of regret that. But I did have to introduce (and come out) to my kids even though my now partner is younger than they are. When they cooked up a get-together weekend with me, and I knew Alex would be hoping to see me that weekend, I just decided it was time. He and I were getting serious and they needed to be brought into the loop. So I told each of them individually over the phone. One right after the other. So when they arrived at my door, they had digested it and introductions went normally. We had some slightly raised voices before the evening was over but that was more along the lines of anger that I had waited so long to tell them.
