Friends and i were talking about this and it's different for guys then girls.
But to actually meet the people who raised and grew up with you can be quite a trip for the unsuspecting new love in your life.
As soon as the relationship becomes serious and you expect it to be long term, meeting the parents is something that needs to be done IMO Because when a guy introduces a girl to his parents, everyone knows: -The dad is judging her hotness (atta boy son factor) -The mom is judging her potential for wifeyness -The girl is judging the whole family picture to see how you treat your parents and what kind of family you have.
-You are seeing if she meshes well with your family, if your family accepts/approves of her, and also you are seeing another step on the commitment road achieved, bringing you one step closer to a wife, kids, and a minivan. ^^ hahah gotta love the mini van comment in there lol but in all honesty lets be realistic here...usually people will start getting "serious" by 2-4 months, and i'm not just saying bed sheets moving around but other thoughts.
Hands down, introducing your significant other to your family is one of the more anxiety-inducing rites of passage in a new relationship.
It's like catching a glimpse of your partner for the first time again, this time through the eyes of some highly-critical loved ones who only have your best interest at heart.
