I don’t know, maybe he’s worried it will be so boring for you that you’ll have a first impression. Or that you’ll whip out your phone to play with (or something, whatever) because you’re bored and then they’ll have a bad first impression?

Not saying that will happen, but sometimes first impressions can really stress people out.

He invited you to go and I wouldn’t read anything else in to it! If he had changed his mind, I’m sure he would make up some lame excuse and not just warn you it would be boring.  Because yeah, sitting around somebody’s house and meeting their family for the first time is stessful, awkward, and kind of boring.

@giddystars:  he’s probably nervous too.  He wants them to like you and vice versa.  My first visit to meet my FH’s parents (9 years ago….) was mothers day weekend, something we didn’t realize at first (he’d just moved hom for the summer).  I met his entire family that weekend, 2 trips to the same restaurant in 1 day (with each side of the family) and he was rather embarassed by the whole trip (the first thing his cousins husband said to me was ‘pull my finger’ – no joke).

I’m sure it will all be fine and they will love you 🙂

@giddystars:  Eh, he’s a man. I would say that he generally feels like it will be boring. He’s not going to try to put some reverse psychology on you. It could very well be that he sees a better opportunity in the near future and doesn’t want to waste the first impression on this.
