4Let them do the talking
Once you are done with the exchanged pleasantries, try to follow their cues and let them start the talking. Try avoiding being over friendly or in fact, don’t be too restrained. Sit back and learn more about them. Once you have warmed up you can start sharing some stuffs about yourself. It can look a little bit more awkward, but you don’t want them to think that you are withholding any kind of information. A good idea is to rehearse a mock conversation with your boyfriend.
There are more chances that when you guys will meet then you might end up talking about your man. Most of the conversation will revolve around him. Sharing stories and wanting to know more about him can be more than tempting, but you also have to see that while talking about him you don’t pick on him along with his parents. His parents might want to know about him from your point of view, so try to respectfully avoid it.
6Don’t be a know-it-all
No matter how much you know about him, from his favourite shirt to his favourite food, but try to avoid being known all about it in front of his parents. Remember that they know him better than you and families can be very protective about it. It doesn’t matter how much you are in love with him, they will still feel that they know better than you. So try relaxing and go with the flow.
7Refrain from Public Display of Affection
You can sit next to your man, but remember to avoid holding hands and even forget about cuddling. Of course, his parents know what you guys are up to, but flashing this in their face can be a little extreme and misbehaving.
