A Do or a Don't: Taking a Date to Meet the Folks

A Do or a Don't: Taking a Date to Meet the Folks

Normally when we talk about meeting the parents, it’s thought of as a formal introduction of boyfriend to family. In other words, it’s a big step. But lately, I’ve noticed a somewhat blasé attitude about family intros. In fact, more and more people I know seem to be giving up the formality and presenting their parents with their newest date or even crush!

Certainly many rituals surrounding dating and family no longer exist, and I wonder if the conventional family meet and greet is the next to go. So ladies, tell me, is the unceremonious interaction between family and new boyfriends or even potential boyfriends a do or a don't? And if it's a do, is there ever such thing as “too soon”?
