It might seem like a huge mountain to be climber: how do you impress your sweetheart parents? It comes down to few things which you can improve upon in order to get their approval.
Dress to impress
Going to meet your girlfriend or boyfriend parents, you need to be presentable. Take a good shower, place your hair neatly, wash your hands before you shake hands, and make sure you have good breath.
Wear some clothes that look neat and that flatter you. Don’t show up wearing torn jeans and sporting some mean tattoos. Girls, make sure to don’t dress too sexy.
When you meet them for the first time, give them a firm handshake. When it’s firm, it shows you mean you feel confident.
Make good conversation
One of the most important parts of meeting parents is the conversation. Talk about what you like, use good anecdotes and appropriate jokes. Remember, to listen carefully during the conversation to know what parents say.
Be ready to answer to their questions. There comes a time in every first meeting where you will be assaulted with questions. It is very important to answer most of these questions in the affirmative.
Show good manners
It’s important to show good manners. Saying sir and ma’am will get you a long way, and opening doors and pulling chairs out for people is a great way to make a lasting positive first impression.
Offering to pay
Man, if you can afford it you could offer for dinner or lunch is a great way to look generous and it shows that you do not stop at anything to take care of their daughter and that you will meet her needs. Of course if you can’t afford something like a big dinner for a large family, then don’t worry.
