Dating

Why won't my BF introduce me to his 'rents?


 
So my boyfriend is really immature. He will not introduce me to his parents when we have been dating for a year and a half. It really bugs me because he has met my parents yet I cannot meet his. It is like I am not good enough and it makes me fell like I am not that special to him.

 

Hey girl! Let’s get to the bottom of this situation. I totally understand why you feel like you’re not special to him. A year and half is a pretty long time! You two are obviously in a committed, mature relationship. If he doesn’t have strong feelings for you or care about you, he wouldn’t stay in a relationship with you. He should be proud and excited to introduce a great girl like you to his family, so there has to be another reason why he’s reluctant.

 

Think about some reasons why he might not want to. Is he allowed to be dating? Maybe his family is going through some tough times and he doesn’t want you to see that. There are a number of possible reasons he hasn’t mixed you with his family.

 

But instead of constantly wondering, I think you should just sit him down and ask him.  Try not to be confrontational. Simply say, “We’ve been together for a year and half and it would mean a lot to me if I met your family.” If he won’t give you a clear answer, figure out what you both want out of the relationship and if it’s truly worth the effort to be together.
