How should you act when meeting your boyfriend’s parents?
It’s getting serious between young lovebirds Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez! It’s so serious, in fact, that the Biebster took his GF home to meet the family. To her credit, Selena is putting in a ton of effort to make the Bieber clan adore her as much as he does — and here’s why this is the smartest move she could be making!
After missing his sister Jazmyn‘s third birthday in Tuesday because he and his lady love were hanging out in Texas, the two jetted to Justin’s hometown of Stratford, Ontario, Canada to belatedly celebrate with his sibling. Selena, 18, has not only played with Jazmyn, but has spent time getting to know her boyfriend’s dad, Jeremy. She also spent some QT with his mom, Pattie Mallette, grandparents, step-mom and step-sister Amanda while Justin worked out. Smooth move, Ms. Gomez!
Why am I so impressed by Selena? Well, it’s one thing for your man to adore you, but if his parents don’t approve, it’s eventually going to cause problems. By hanging out independently with his family members, Selena is showing that she’s invested in the relationship. She’s getting an additional — and highly coveted — stamp of approval.
It’s not the end of the world if your boyfriend’s family doesn’t love you or warm to your immediately, but to have them actually like you is a great thing. You want to be the type of girl your guy takes home to meet mom and dad.
Just FYI, when you’re meeting the family, try not to be nervous. It’s extremely anxiety-inducing to meet the fam, so try to be yourself. Your BF loves you for you, so why shouldn’t his family? You have nothing to worry about!
