    We started dating end of January and I met them at Easter. I met them at the emergency vet when his dog almost died at 17 years old. We got a call at church and flew down the street to the vet. His mom was sitting on the bench sobbing.

    Yup, awkward!

    Fiance and I started dating the second week in September (two weeks into my first fall semester at our college) and I met his parents at the beginning of winter break that year when I went to visit him…so it was about three months in.  I can’t for the life of me remember when he met my parents!  I thin it may have been over fall break, so about a month in.

    I met them exactly 1 year after we started dating, but that’s because they are a plane ride away and he had JUST been out to see them when we started dating, so I had to wait until that annual visit to go out and meet them. (minus holidays which we weren’t sharing that early on in our relationship).

    Met them right away! He wanted to “show me off.” (His words, not mine).

    We met about 7 months after my SO and I met and started dating.  They live out of state and it was my SO’s first time visitng home for about a year. We surprised his father at his retirement party, it was emotional and a great way to be “inducted” into the family!!

    I met my FI’s parents after we had known each other for a week (and had seen each other almost every night that first week).  He knew there was something special there and asked me to have dinner at his parents house with him.  When he dropped me off, he asked me if I would be his girlfriend (we were 18 and 19 at the time and it was very sweet).  He had already met my dad at that point (which is totally normal for me…Daddy-o meets everyone!).

    I met his parents four months into our relationship. I was invited to their Christmas Eve annual party, so I met almost his entire (rather large) family all at once!

    We were friends first and I met his parents but I didnt really start coming around a lot until we started dating about a year after we met.

    I met my fiance’s parents before we were actually dating. We’ve known each other a long time. Beyond that, we started doing holidays with each other’s families before we were engaged. His parents always liked me and my parents always liked him and didn’t need us to be engaged before they accepted us as part of the family.

    I met his father and his fiance about 2 weeks in and his mom about 2 1/2 months in, because she lives 3 hours south of us.

    We are both very family oriented people and it was important. He knew my mom and stepdad almost instantly since we all worked together. He didn’t get to meet my dad and stepmom until we had been together 7 months, they live in GA where I grew up at(not with my mom)
