I’ve met my fiance’s parents in person twice, and said hi a few times on skype, but I want to get to know them more. I like them a lot, but every time I met them or said hi I felt really awkward because I’m shy and I really want them to like me. My fiance says they do but I can’t help but feel like I sound stupid every time I try and talk to them!!
It’s really important to me to try to get to know them more, they will be our kids grandparents and I want us all to be close and feel comfortable with each other…so I’m going to write them an email but I don’t know where to start. They are relatively quiet and reserved from what I’ve seen, but good people. Does anyone have any advice??

You should take the time to hand write them a letter, a letter is so much more personal then an email and people really like getting mail.

I was going to say the same thing as @tksjewelry said. Write them a letter! Getting a letter in the mail is very special. I know you mentioned you’ve said hi on Skype a few times but maybe sit there with your Fiance while he’s on there with him and you may get more used to them and talk more.

I thought about that but I would like to really get to know them, and letters take so long to go back and forth. I was thinking emails because that way we can have more conversations faster and I can eventually see if she wants to be in on the wedding planning even if its from afar. Another problem is my fiance is actually there in Australia with them while our visa is processing so they would have to sit with him lol
Whether its a letter or email though I really don’t know where to begin when it comes to talking with them, I don’t know how to start! The words, I get awkward and shy x.x

Maybe you can set up a regular time to skype? Like every sunday evening or every other sunday so you can stay in touch. There is also connectng on facebook. Sharing everyday little events will make you feel closer.

my In laws are also half a world away. I call them often, ( probbaly once every 2 weeks, 3 ) I skyped with mother in law a few times.. and I also FB my Sister in law from time to time. It works for us, and its not on a daily basis kind of thing – it helps and they appreciate it!
