It is a little weird! I had my first experience with that last weekend. It turned out nicely, though! I was super nervous at first, but we just talked about wedding-related things and her younger daughter who had come in town from college. And I honestly feel closer to her now for it!

Good luck!

I still find it awkward.  I don’t think her and I can hold much of a conversation as our interests are completely different.

Good luck! It’s always a little wierd the first few times but just think… you’ll be spending holidays/birthdays/etc with this lady. At least she is extending an invite to hang out!

Good luck! I was super nervous the first couple of times we hung out without my hubby. Just relax and maybe think of a few questions to ask if there isn’t much conversation going. 

I think I got over it after I went to Aqua-size with my Mother-In-Law. Somehow I got through that one without her even seeing my tattoo!

FI’s mom & I went out for sushi alone, and thank god they had a long wait for seating and we went next door to grab some wine! It losened us both up and it somehow made every meeting with her since very laid back.

I still find it awkward… we don’t have too much in common.

Good luck though! I wish my Mother-In-Law was my bff since I’m around her so much!

@pandaboo:  Glad it worked out!  Now that you got that awkward first time out of the way, the other times probably won’t be so weird.

Wish I could do this with my Future Mother-In-Law but there’s a severe language barrier…

Aww fun!!  The first few times I hung out with Mother-In-Law alone it was a little awkard.  She’s got a really nice, but very strong personality, so she’s a bit intimidating.  But now we’re like best buds.  I go over to their house all the time to just hang out with her and watch football.  So much fun!

I am only handle smiling and nodding at my FMIL conversations, no way could I stand one and one… shes crazy lol In fact I don’t think I could handle one on one with any of my FIL’s, except my niece as shes pretty awesome.
