Meeting your significant other’s parents is stressful to say the least. Of course, you want them to like you. Although with all the nervous energy a slip up is probable. In my experience there three steps to impressing you in-laws. Taking these steps will ease some of the pressure and allow you to be your charming self.
1. Be Polite
This step is fairly obvious. Still, it’s importance cannot be disputed. Approach the in-laws with nothing but respect. Remember they created the angel that you have fallen in love with. Be grateful and express it.
2. Be Good To Their Child
The best way to impress your in-laws is to be good to their child. Be the partner they would want their baby to have. Do this consistently when they are not there, and you will have the battle half won by the time you meet them.
3. Be Yourself
If there is one thing any parent can sense, it is people being inauthentic. Do not pretend to be someone else to impress them, be yourself. Presenting as exactly who you are will show them why their child loves you. It will surely win their hearts and be quite impressive.
