So you meet the parents? And they don’t you like you one bit? Now what you are going to do? First you need to just accept that ok they don’t like you either you don’t care or you care and you’ll do something. The first time meeting the parents or family is a big deal and everybody will judge you and talk about you either in your face or behind your back. the only thing you can do in this situation is wait it out and continue to be who you are and be mindful of what you say around your partner’s family and friends.
Nobody said that would be easy and for some family members it takes a little warming up to you before they trust you and let you in. remember to not stress out or let this frustration come between you and you partner. It’s not worth the pain or hurt. Family will always be there and you just have to deal with it.
After you realize that they don’t like you, try to ask your partner to find out and why and if it something you can fix, then do it. But never changes your morals or values for someone to like you. People see through the fake. Keep trying to get to know the parents and don’t just give up someday they will turn around and like you or at least tolerate you.
