So the day has passed and I’ve finally spent some quality time with his extended family. And I like them. I really do! We had them over my parents’ house and everything! They’re so down to earth and easy to get along with and I’d like to see them more often. I feel like we made a great connection and I’m so thrilled to be part of their family now. Problem is, he has no interest. It’s not that he dislikes his family, he just has no desire to see them outside of important family functions. A conversation between him and his aunts and uncles and cousins doesn’t go beyond “hello” and “good bye”. I assume after 30+ years they are used to this, and I don’t want them to think I was spending so much time with them just to make a good impression for that day and never again. Honestly if I didn’t like them I’d be just as indifferent as he is. So how can I be sure they know that I 100% genuinely like them? I don’t want them to think I’m a fake.
