Sometimes there is no real good way to telling them then to have him meet them first. But some parents don’t like to be surprised. Do you have a sibling or one of your parents to confide in to help you ease the introduction or announcement?

Growing up, I always confided in my Mom and if I knew my Dad would not like something I went to her for advice on how to approach him and most of the time it worked.

Good Luck!

Good luck and congrats. Just tell them, they’ll get over it. They have to meet him at some point and I’m sure they want to! Your spelling is driving me nuts, by the way

Half the battle is your fiance being nervous to meet them. So if he is ready, then you just have to go ahead and tell them and arrange the meeting. It will all work out. I am also like roddybride09 where I actually run just about everything by my mom first before telling my dad. That way I can gauge what the reaction will be.

I’m sorry, is this post a joke?

congrats, and I agree 100% – the spelling is a drag! I used to type like that when I was 12…..

Congrats, but all I could get out of your post was you are engaged.

I agree that congratulations are in order, but I can’t read any of the rest of it.

Oh goodness, thanks! That was just awful! It was so hard to read, but I didn’t want to be rude in case there was some language barrier that I was completely unaware of. That is some excessive shorthand texting. T9 is much easier once you learn it.

When your FI comes over for dinner, have him bring a gift–flowers, candy, something nice for your mom. Even if there’s a language barrier, all moms appreciate a little buttering up. So even if they can’t talk, she’ll know he means well.

Ha! I honestly thought you didn’t know english and that it was the only way you knew how to communicate. At least that is all cleared up!

I agree with EJS that your FI can butter-up your Mom 🙂 or Dad!
