Ooooh! It may not be a ring, but I do think that for most people meeting the parents is a big deal!

So, usually it means a guy is serious about you. Also, if this has to happen before engagement it means just one more thing off the list of things to get in order before the proposal. 

Meeting the parents… CHECK!

@jackndiane: Oh wow! I totally didn’t read your first post correctly. I have the flu. 

Still though, that is a good sign! It used to be that both sets of parents would meet to discuss the contract between the two families. That doesn’t really happen in our modern day culture, but I think some of the weight of the two parents meeting carries over.

Maybe he is using this as an opportunity to talk to your parents about his intentions or to get a blessing from both sets? Or maybe something special is coming sooner than you think? Exciting regardless!
