Meeting your new partner’s parents can be intimidating. Even for the rich and famous.

Take Katy Perry and Russell Brand. Sadly because they marriage failed, one can only imagine dear old Russell didn’t make a lasting impression with Katy’s parents. But he apparently DID make a good FIRST impression, (worth a mention because he publicly spoke about how nervous he was about the first introduction).

Then there’s Kim Kardashian and Kanye West. Recently, Kanye took the big step of meeting Kim’s ENTIRE family! We all know if you date one of the Kardashians, you’re pretty much in a relationship with the whole family. (Some of you from larger families listening can probably relate to THAT aspect of the Kardashians). And if there’s one man who can take on the whole clan whilst looking like it’s all in his stride, Kanye can!

Getting on with a partner’s parents can only help relationship satisfaction. So here’s a few tips on how you can, just like Kanye, make a good first impression.

The Big Meet

  • Treat it as a cross between a job interview and a first date. Dress nicely, but appropriately. That’s means no hot pants or obscenely low cut tops.
  • Find out what your new beau’s parents are interested in, be it football, gardening, or food. On the big day, talk to them about their passion.

Your Partner

Remember, your partner might be stuck in the middle between you and his parents, so avoid the following:

  • Touchy subjects that might cause uncomfortable debates.
  • Criticizing his parents after meeting them. Again this could easily backfire on you.

Follow these steps and here’s hoping you win over your beau’s parents just as you did him!
