    I’m thinking within 2 or 3 months of dating….they lived nearby and I am his first serious girlfriend. 

    I think he met my parents about that time too, however, I usually made my boyfriends wait a long time before they my parents…

    Fiance is 29 and I am 23 years old.  We have been together for 16 months, living together for 12 months, and engaged for almost 6 months.  FI’s parents are divorced and I met his dad almost right away in the first week of dating, and met his mom about a month in (she lives about an hour away).  Looking back, it may seem like we moved so fast comparatively.  We had both had serious relationships in the past and had both been previously engaged (FI was with his ex for 8 years!), but we both knew within the first month that this was different, hard to explain, but this relationship was just *more*.  More than we had previously known, experienced, cared….so we may have moved pretty fast, but we just knew 🙂


    Oh, and he met my mom within that first month.  We met each other’s extended families not too long after that, and he went on vacation with my mom and me when we had been together for a month!  Haha, it definitely helped break the ice between him and my mom because they got fairly comfortable around each other after the three of us shared a condo for a week.  I went on my first trip with his family last month, and he came on his first vacation with my whole immediate family earlier this month.

    I met his parents pretty early, probably a month into our relationship. But he met mine way earlier. My mom was actually with me when I met him, and then he and my parents both wanted to go to the same baseball game and I didn’t know how to say that it weirded me out for them to meet so early, so we all went.

    I met them the day we met, actually. We met online and I went up to visit him (he was living at home at the time), so that’s when I met his dad and stepmom. I didn’t meet his mom and stepdad until about a month later.

    I met my FI’s parents when we have been dating a little less than a month.

    About a month after we started dating…I met his parents and most of his siblings on the same day. He met my parents a few weeks after that.

    We started dating in November and I met them over Easter when we stayed at their house. I may have met his Dad and brother before but I can’t remember it now.

    He met my Dad and brother at the end of the school year and then he met my mother that July when he drove 1500 miles in less than 36 hours (yes, he is crazy).

    I met them almost right away.. I think we had been dating for about a month or two at that point.

    I met my SO’s mother after about 8 months of dating.. We had just moved in together a month prior and she was our first house guest!

    My SO met my dad after 4 months of dating, when he came up for Thanksgiving. The three of us slept in my tiny 300 ft2 studio apartment. Kinda awkward! But fun 🙂 My SO will meet my mom and sister in just a few weeks when we fly down to visit. We’ve been dating for 14 months now, so it’s about time!

    I should note that we live out of state and about 1,000-3,000 miles from both of our immediate families.

    I knew his mom before we started dating, because she worked at the high school we both went to. His dad I met about two weeks after we started dating when Mr. C and I were on the way home from play practice and I ran out of gas. His dad had to bring me some to fill my tank – talk about an embarrassing way to meet your FFIL!

    I met them a couple months after we started dating.  FI brought me to his mothers b-day dinner.  Our families met about 6 months later for mothers day.  Fortunately they get along REALLY well.  I was pretty sure our dads were going to go outside the restaurant and build a fort.

    I was hidden from them – an interacial thing.  We accidentally bumped into them when we were out once.  His parents made a HUGE scene.  I never did anything wrong except be white 🙁

    I met them in the first week we were dating.  He was still living at home so it was hard to avoid it.
