|Meeting Boyfriends Mum by Imogenn(f): 5:41pm On Feb 23, 2019|
I’m meeting my boyfriends mum today. I really like this guy and this is the first real relationship I’ve had that I know will possibly lead to marriage. I just need tips on how to act, what to do to impress her as I’ve not really met a partners mom before. I’m very shy and introverted and I’m just worried that she might not like me. Wives in the house, give me tips!

Simply be yourself, do not fake it. Let her like you for who you truly are.

Here to learn

Lmao, she should impress her by Kneeling from the gate to inside the house and wash all the dirty dishes including all their clothes.
I'm sure his mum will be proud.

LMAO, you're not nice.

Raalsalghul:This is what I don’t get about some of you. Just because you are experiencing a scam or unhappiness does not mean others are unhappy in theirs.

Just be yourself in a positive way. Most parents can sense when someone is faking. Being introverted makes it even more difficult because it can be construed as faking to seem nice. Your boyfriend can help here by telling his mom that you are introverted and may be shy.
Except she inquires about your relationship with their son, don’t bring it up. If they bring it up be calculative and modest in your response without sounding desperate. You can speak about his positive qualities if they ask why you like their son.
Warning: Don’t speak like you know her son more than her because it is a huge turn off for mothers. Mothers become defensive in that instance. No one should know their son more than them, even after marriage, it is a simple rule.
Don’t build any expectation of marriage especially if your guy has not openly conversed such with you irrespective of the level of commitment between both of you. For all you know, he may have just told them a female friend is visiting or his girlfriend without making any commital comments about marriage to her.
Someone once told me of how she spent weeks preparing to meet his boyfriend’s parents and when the day came, his parents greeted her and after 10 mins the parents left for church. Today they are married and she is best friends with her mother in-law.

Raalsalghul:At the end of the day, you gotta choose. You won't want to be lonely when you start seeing your friends with their kids. Hope you know

11thGoldTREE:So your reason for getting married is not to be lonely

Why are u desperate to impress ordinarily boyfriend mum, u might not be the first or last so keep it cool.
A girl that knows her worth won't be bothered, she will just be herself
|Re: Meeting Boyfriends Mum by Richy4(m): 5:07pm On Feb 24, 2019|
I'm guessing you gonna act like u can sweep from Abuja to Lagos all by yourself right?
And God help u you saw his mum in the kitchen..u Jump in and start cooking and cleaning just to score a mark right? Even when his female siblings are in the sitting room holding TV remote control watching Soap opera right?
Please do not reset your default settings..from introvert to extrovert just because of a boy and his mother.be original..U are cool the way u are.. If they don't like u and he loves you, he will fight for u.. if not u know the nearest exit door..use it..
