Do Your Parents Embarrass You?

Last night I was watching The Bachelor, one of my many guilty pleasures, and it was the episode where the girls take the bachelor to their hometowns to meet their families. This part of the show is my favorite each and every season because you just never know what you're going to get! Some of the parents are overprotective, some are overly carefree, and some are resting comfortably in the middle. While I like to think mine fall in that middle category, they've most definitely embarrassed me on more than one occasion. So what about you? Have your parents ever embarrassed you in front of your new special someone?

No way! I love them to death. Growing up, all my friends were envious of me because I had the "cool" parents. Super-loving and nice to all my friends.

I just tell all my SO's up front that they will probably never meet my parents. they don't ask about it and all is well.

the first time my now-husband met my parents, my dad had a huge bruised bite mark on his cheek. he explained it by saying he and my mom were "play-wrestling" and she bit him. now THAT was embarrassing!

I should have elaborated parents didn't let me go out to parties or stay out too late and as a teenager, those are the most important things and to not be able to do them, is embarrassing.

I love my parents to death and they never embarrassed me with things they said but they were overprotective. I could never do things that other people my age were doing and that is what ebarrassed me.

Yes, they can definitely embarrass me. My father always tells new people how I was such a "perfect" child and never caused trouble. Not exactly something I want bragged about to strangers, since I definitely wasn't perfect (who is?ugh.) Then until was 13, whenever I was walking in a parking lot with my dad, to make sure I moved quick enough he would hold his hand on my neck like when you have to guide a toddler. Embarrassing. I finally got ticked off and told him to stop. My mom is nice and outgoing. However she will break into singing or humming a song at any given moment and dances in the kitchen (not normal dancing either.) She did that in front of my close friend when she came over for the first time. Not cool.

My dad isn't really embarrassing expect for the loud goofy laugh he has. It seems obnoxious to me, but I just might be extra critical. My mom...Oh, dear. She once walked up to a random guy and told him he was cute and asked how old he was, saying I would love to meet him. It turns out he was 13 or 14, and I was 17. I was mortified. She also can't speak English very well, so no one knows what she's saying, and she brags about me a lot. At least she dresses and looks cute.

Of course. They're my parents! But it's ok. I'm used to it.

Lots, as a child and still to this day. But I love them, so I tolerate it more now.

My mom can be embarrassing but it's just in an overly comfortable way like she wants to be everyone's best friend, never malicious.

Slightly but not too bad. When I was younger she told this guy's dad that I liked him. He wasn't close to his dad and his dad did a lot of drugs so it probably didn't get back to him anyway lol. She's kinda silly and says weird things that get looks but it's okay.

My mom used to be uber-embarassing..especially after a glass of wine or two. One instance comes to mind - when she dragged the bartender at the restaurant we were at for my high school graduation over to our table to "meet me" (wink wink) right in front of my boyfriend...
