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?"

"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.

 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.

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.
