May 22

Some guys find it so easy to get parents to like them. Whether it is attributed to luck or charm, these guys never seem to have a problem with parents while he dates their daughter. However, there are some parents who aren’t so nice. In fact, it doesn’t have to be both parents who don’t like you even just one parent can make it hell for you to date their daughter.

Girlfriend Parents

In many cases, parents tend to be very picky when guys date their daughters. It’s only natural, they want their daughters to have the best of everything and they would prefer someone perfect to take their daughters out and to woo them. So when you are faced with a mother and father who are definitely not falling for your charms, here are a few tips to help you to get your girlfriend’s parents to like you:

• Do a little of your own research and find out more about your girlfriend’s parents from the things that your girlfriend tells you. Find out what kind of relationship she has with her mother and father and how big an influence they have on her and the decisions she makes. This will give you a better idea of understanding where her parents are coming from.

• Ask your girlfriend to build you up a little with her parents. Have her focus on all your positive aspects and let your girlfriend know that having her parents like you is important to you, especially if you are in it for the long haul with your girlfriend. Make sure she gives them a good impression of you before you meet them in the future.

• Meet your girlfriend’s parents when you know that you really love your girlfriend and when you have the gut feeling that it is the right time. Make sure you meet under comfortable circumstances so that you don’t put yourself through too much agony. You may even want to invite them both to dinner out with you and your girlfriend. Either way, try to impress them on your first meeting and show them that you really care about their daughter.

• Upon meeting them, listen carefully, be observant and find out their reactions to certain things you say or do. Keep a mental note of it and try to fix negative things quickly. Always be alert to things that the parents may enjoy and like so that you can use that information in the future. If the father likes golf, then maybe you could take up golf later. If the mother loves gardening, maybe you could lend a hand in her garden one of these days. All these little bits of information matter when it comes to getting her parents to like you.

• Don’t avoid your girlfriend’s home or her parents as much as you can. You’ll only stress yourself out, and besides, parents know when you are avoiding them. Before picking her up at home, chat with your girlfriend’s parents before taking her out. On weekends, drop by during convenient times and always let them know you are coming over. Don’t overdo it, but let them see that you are not intentionally avoiding them. Otherwise they will resent you for trying to keep them in the dark about your intentions.

• Cut down on the public displays of affection when your girlfriend’s parents are in the vicinity. Reduce contact to just holding her hand at the very least. Be respectful when they are around and focus a little more on them when they come and talk to you. Let your girlfriend know when it is uncomfortable for you to be too affectionate with her parents around. Never hang out in your girlfriend’s room when you visit. Hang out in a common area where you can include her parents in your visit and enjoy each others’ company.

• Be honest and considerate with her parents when you are all together. What they really want to know is that your intentions with their daughter are good. Don’t be afraid to let them know how much you care for their daughter when the topic ever comes up. Have meaningful conversations with her parents so that they know that you are an open and honest guy who can be trusted.

How You Can End a Date that has Gone Bad

May 07

There are times that we go out with a guy that we feel could be “the one” and it ends up that he is completely the opposite. For instance, instead of a normal restaurant, he takes you to a fast food place for your first date and expects you to collect and pay for your own meal! Or you’ve gotten all dressed up for a wonderful evening on the town and he shows up in the same shirt he’s been wearing all day and torn jeans and takes you to a bar where he spends the evening checking out other women or talking to his friends who hang out there all week!


When these things happen to you, you wonder why you even said yes to him in the first place. But you’re a nice girl and nice girls are never rude, so you grin and bear it all. In fact, when he wants to switch locations, you agree and he takes you to an even worse place than before. To save yourself from further torture and torment, here are a few things that you should do to end a disastrous date early, with the grace and confidence that you intend:

1. Take him to the side, if you are surrounded by his friends, and tell him gently and firmly that the evening is just not working out for you. Thank him for the nice date and let him know that there is just no chemistry that you are feeling between the two of you. Most men are not good at guessing what we feel even if we’re obviously uncomfortable, so it is important to be clear and firm about what we say.

2. Don’t give him a goodnight kiss. A goodnight kiss is reserved for those dates that go fantastically well and when we feel that the man’s effort during the date deserves this tiny but most meaningful of rewards. If you hated the date you were on and you give him a kiss, even just a peck on the cheek, this will send the wrong signals and he’ll just think that you were uncomfortable only on that one night, and that maybe you can do it again soon. So just thank him and tell him that you can find your own way home so that you don’t have to sit through even more discomfort if he offers to drive you.

3. If you really hated the date and know that you would definitely not go out with him again, make it clear. He may beg you for another chance by setting another date, but say no and be firm. You may consider dating him again, but if you really don’t want to then don’t beat around the bush and send mixed signals. It will turn out more unfair for the both of you and you’ll end up in another night of torment with him again before realizing it.

4. To stay friends or not to stay friends. This all depends. If you both started out as friends and this date didn’t really do anything to damage your friendship to the point of not wanting to be in the same room together, then staying friends would be okay. Maybe that is how you and he were meant to be – just friends. If it was really horrible and he makes a big deal about it all the time and will never let you forget “the time your abandoned him on a date” then maybe it is better the you just keep away and avoid his friendship. Maybe you weren’t intended to have anything to do with each other after all.

Since lots of men are basically clueless about whether their dates are uncomfortable or not, it is important that we, as women, be clear about what our needs and preferences are. If you are not clear, then it marks the beginning of more trouble in the future. Being clear about our needs and being firm about our decisions can help us avoid nasty nights out that turn out in disaster. Instead, be graceful and confident bring the nasty situation to a place where everyone is comfortable and inconvenienced.
