Guys
A Rundown of What Happens When You Meet Your Boyfriend's Parents for the First Time
We can actually feel the awkward.

Meeting the parents has gotten a bad rap for being something down right terrifying. While it's still sometimes the case, the truth is, most of that knee-trembling terror comes not from his "scary" parents but from, well, your brain. But it happens to the best of us. So instead of banging your head on the wall when you get home, have a laugh with all the insane thoughts going through your head and know that you weren't the only one who struggled this way.

 1  "W-w-w-wwwhat meet the parents? N-n-n-nnnow?"

"Not now," he says. "On Sunday, Dinner." All of a sudden, the air your lungs have been searching for has been restored. Well, for now.

 2  "What is wrong with my hair?! What do I wear?!"

That everyday struggle in front of your closet? It's nothing compared to this. Seriously, do I own anything that is NOT cropped?

 3  "Gotta impress them! Bake it off, bake it off…"

Because I have to bring something to the table. But first of all, do I even bake? Second of all, can you smell that? Is something burning in there?

Please don't look creepy. Please don't look creepy. Please don't look creepy.

 5  You enter their house and start saying... things.

"Oh, I love your curtains. Your vases look nice. Oh, pretty door knobs!" What are you saying? What are you doing?! Furniture shopping?!

 6  They ask you questions and you suddenly forget all the basic details of your life.

Oh! MY name... Oh. Oh na na what's my name?

 7  Then you blurt out really stupid things.

Because you're too nervous that you haven't even heard what they were asking you. So you say the first thing that comes to mind. "Louis is going to be a dad," you almost yell at them. For your sake, let's hope your boyfriend's name is NOT Louis.

You tell it a thousand different ways and a thousand different times to your boyfriend. You even threaten him, "DON'T YOU DARE LEAVE ME OR ALL HELL WILL BREAK LOOSE ONCE THIS DINNER'S OVER!"

 9  You laugh at all his family's jokes.

Even those that aren't really meant to be funny.

 10  You want to hit your boyfriend in the head for making you go through all of this.

But you won't, and you'll probably even go through all of it again because you really do truly love him… and you'll begin to love his mum and dad too, the two awesome people who made sure your boy is the amazing boyfriend he is today. *heart eyes everywhere*

The girl with the big hair that may or may not be full of secrets. I like boy bands and naps and pretty things. One Direction occasionally takes over my life. Oh, and I always say I'm never going shopping again. As if.
