When Should You Meet Your Boyfriend's Parents

Group Therapy: Did I Screw Up?

This question comes from Group Therapy in our TrèsSugar Community. Add your advice in the comments!

I've been dating this guy for a little over month. No BF/GF talk, we are just happily dating.

We spent Friday night together, met up with some of my friends and even a couple of his came out. The next morning I made us breakfast and we made plans but he wanted to go home first to get some things. When he got home he called and said he forgot it was his bro's bday and his Mom wanted the family to go to dinner and he asked if I wanted to come.

I thought about it but said no. I said that I did want to meet his family some other time, but it was his brother's birthday and I didn't want to steal any spotlight from him. Honestly I really didn't think it was the right time for me to meet his whole family. I didn't want his brother's birthday dinner to turn into a "meet his older brother's new girl" dinner.

He said OK and muttered something about how he felt bad for ditching on our plans. I said it was fine and he could just come over after. Which he did for a bit before going out to meet up with friends (they were badgering him to come out since he NEVER has Saturdays off...so I told him to go).

Did I royally **** up by not going to dinner with his family? Do you think he'll ever ask me again? I feel like kicking myself now, like I missed an opportunity and he is pushing me away now.

I texted him yesterday asking him if he had fun and he responded hours later that he did. I asked him how work was going and he never responded. It's been over 24 hours....which is rare....am I being blown off?
