I don’t think you should be worried or reading too much into it. When the time feels right it will naturally occur. Just keep going with the flow. I think girls spend so much time worrying about why they haven’t met their significant others parents- that when the time does come it is more stressful because you want to make a good impression. But I would think you could try to consider too, how many of your friends parents have you met? And how long did it take before you met your own friends parents? It doesn’t change the level of significance in that case so too should this be true for the parent of your significant other. Right? 

I didn’t meet my significant others parents until maybe two yrs into our relationship. I think it’s hard for some people to introduce someone they are dating, because of past experiences they may have had with introducing their previous significant others. For example, from personal experience- my family is quite harsh at judging who I or my sister dated. so we were far more reluctant to bring guys home until we had more than established a level of genuine trust with our new ‘guy’ before bringing them home to be critiqued. (shrug) but that might just have been my (&my sisters) experience. But it didn’t represent how we felt about the guy (delaying the introductions). 

Does that help a little?

Have the two of you talked about it?  I don’t think there is enough info here for me to give advice other than telling you to talk to him about meeting his mother. 

Good luck!
