My daughter(13) wanted me to meet her first "real" boyfriend. I was nice and pleasant, but I knew it wouldn't last cause he was all looks and no brains. Of course, as jr high relationships go, it was about a 2 month ordeal. I think all parents should try and be cordial, unless the person feels like a serial killer or something. (littlecakebaker)
My 4yo daughter introduced me to the 5yo neighbour kid as a bf, she told me he's really good at running fast and he appreciates snails as much as she does. Needless to say, this is a keeper (LittleMissEmmet)
Not a parent, but this was my experience with my mother when I was a teen.
So, as a teen, my mother pulled me to the side and gave me the "gay talk". You know, the "I'll still love you even if you were gay" talk.
I asked her why she thought I was gay and she said it was because I never bring any girls to the house.
Guess what I did within the next few days? I brought a girl in the house.
Guess what my mother did? She kicked her out and gave me a lecture on how inappropriate it was to bring girls to the house.
Yes, it makes no sense. (Mr-Klaus)
My mother-in-law assumed I was some sort of player when I first met her before my first date with my wife. Even told my wife that she assumed I went on lots of dates back at school.
Joke’s on her. I spent the entirety of my freshman year (year before I met my wife) enjoying the sweet, sweet internet speed of my dorm room and playing the shit out of Halo 3, Mass Effect 1 & 2, picking up drunk dorm-mates from house parties at 3am, and going on exactly 0 dates.
After years of getting to know my MIL, she just didn’t want her daughter to get into a long-distance relationship, then end up moving out of state with me if we got married and I was still there (which ended up happening. Whoops). (GNOIZ1C)
