    It can sometimes be quite an experience introducing a love-interest to your parents. It may not matter if they approve or disapprove of your new beau, but sometimes parents know best and are able to spot trouble in paradise.

    I know some folks are tired of the dreaded "the guy above you" threads, so lets try a new approach.

    Let's pretend:
    I am the father of the guy above you and he is my only son. I love him dearly and I am protective of him as any father would be of his daughter, wife or close family member. You have dated my son for a while and would now like to take the relationship further towards marriage/civil union/long-term relationship. I want my son (the guy above you) to be happy in love and want to make sure he ends up with someone who will treat him right. Granted, my adult son does not need my approval to date whomever he wants, but dear ol' dad would be relieved knowing his son has made a good choice and won't be stuck with a selfish maniac.

    So, how would you convince me (the father of the guy above you) that you are the best man for my son?

    Your son, DCEric, isn't very bright. Whenever he doesn't understand something he puts a pancake on his (or worse, someone else's) head. Me, I like pancakes and would eat them before they reach his destination. During Passover, he uses matzah - no problem for me. Who else would do that so faithfully for your son?

    P.S. I like French Toast & Palachinken (and Matzah-brei), too. Maybe I can get him to broaden his culinary skills.
