It might not be a big issue for you, but it can be a big issue for your partner as meeting parents means you are serious about your relationship and willing to take the relationship to the next level. If your parents are serious, it is better you take some time to prepare your man so that he knows what your parents expect. Here are 7 surefire signs it is time to meet the parents about your relationship.

  1. You are in a mutually exclusive relationship

Once you are mutually exclusive, it is the right time to meet the parents. Once you have decided that you want to spend your life with your partner, it is the right moment to introduce your man to your parents.


  1. Your partner has met your friends

If your partner is comfortable hanging out with your friends then it is the time, you can make them meet your parents.  It is less pressure to meet your friends than your family, so if they have grown comfortable meeting your friends, then you can take things a level higher and make your man meet your parents.

  1. He has met your other family members

If your man has met your extended family member accidentally or intentionally, then it is the time to make your man meet your parents. There are chances that your extended family member might start gossiping about you and your man. So before your parents get to know about your relationship with someone else and create a fuss about it, it is better you tell them on your own.

  1. You plan your future

When ‘I’ has been replaced by ‘us’ in your conversation then it is the right time. If you see your future with your partner, then it is the time to make him a part of your life by meeting the parents. This will make you and your partner happy as it shows you both are willing to take the relationship to the next level.


  1. The thought of meeting parents does not scare you

If you are not scared to introduce your man to your parents, then this is the right time. This shows you are comfortable in merging your two worlds. But do not push your partner into this if he is not ready.  

  1. Everyone is ready

Speak to your parents about this special someone and gauge their reaction when you suggest a meeting. Do the same with your partner. Once you think that everyone is comfortable enough to take the next step then you will know that it is a perfect time.

  1. You are proud of him

If you are proud of your man, it is easy for you to make him meet your family and talk about his accomplishments. After all, you want your parents to know why you love this man and how capable he is.
