The BBQ will be a perfect casual atmosphere to introduce him! Hope you can make it!

 

However, its never too late to start corresponding by mail – even if they do not reply! If you do not make it home this summer – send a little note saying how you will miss the food, the celebrating, BBQ etc. and then drop a little sentence in there about how FF was looking forward to meeting them, and it looks like thanksgiving will work out better…signing off with using the word “WE” – WE cant wait to visit at thanksgiving etc…

I met my daughters fiancee only once before they were engaged – and it was all right by us as shes an adult and we raised her right – that includes finding a life partner of her choice, whom we do love and think he is the cats meow and well, she was in college and lived over 7 hours away too lol. We also dont expect our daughters to be checking in all the time – life happens and we want you to live it!!! Hopefully your parents feel the same  way…and if they dont, thats their loss, and thats how healthy parents think…

 

So Good luck and I hope the first meeting works out fine!

LOL thats why i was advocating the note sent home if you cant make the BBQ – maybe by the time you two show up at thanksgiving, they would have worked out some of the kinks and coping mechanisms (yelling, screaming, whatev lol) before you two arrive…

I think whatever you do, in order for him to be comfortable, and have a way out (to talk to someone else who is neutral, non crazy etc.), introduce him when theres a crowd – bad people usually try not to act too crazy when theres many witnesses lol so they might go easy on him if family thanksgivings are a “lotsa people affair”…Otherwise if you do a one on one, it might get like an interrogation for him :o!

@evlpc: I agree with  @montanamum:

 I think it might be harder around the holidays.  Good luck!
