how to talk to my parents about meeting my boyfriend?

Unread postby ajakes124 » 26 April 2019, 04:03

I came out to my family almost 2 months ago because I didn't want to keep it a secret anymore, plus i felt it was unfair for my boyfriend for me to keep him a secret. My mum is accepting because she loves me but it's still a touchy subject. I want to ask her if she would be ok to meet my boyfriend sometime in the future but just don't know how to bring it up since we literally haven't spoken about him or our relationship since i came out.

Do you guys have any advice on how I should approach this?
Thanks! :)

Congrats on coming out! It takes a lot of strength and it's a big step. I'm glad your mom is accepting! I think, if you want to make her feel more included and inclined to understand you, show her books, videos, movies with a gay theme, so she can understand that it's no big deal. Personally, I really like Shelter as a starting point. It's a cute romantic movie with no dirty scenes where anyone can understand that one guy can love another. :)

Wait until her birthday and hide him inside an over-size novelty cake. Everyone loves surprises.

Thanks for the advice guys, basically he was over at my place for Netflix and chill and I didn’t expect anyone to come home for a few hours but people came home earlier than I expected..

It was so awkward for me and I guess for him too but it actually went really well :)
