Dating meet parents
Like any other courtship, everything starts with meeting someone right?
Option one being the formal ‘would you be my girlfriend’.“I’m very proud of the fact that I’m usually great at first impressions, even when it’s meeting the parents. And I don’t know what it was, but I got to the bathroom, and my butt exploded, and it smelled terrible. For the sake of this story, everyone needs to understand how awful it was. I found an air freshener can under the sink, but it was old and empty. I don’t want to go into detail but it was about her mother. “I swear to you, this wasn’t really my fault but they blamed me. They found him and brought him back after 20 minutes but they blamed me.But one time I had the typical ‘come over for dinner at my place to meet my parents’ deal. And it got to the point where my girlfriend was texting me while I was in there, so I just swallow my pride and leave the bathroom and hope no one else goes in. And you could tell her mood changed when she came out. Basically what happened was, we went to my girlfriend’s parents place, opened the door, and the dog ran at us. Her parents were screaming at me to shut the door as I was closest, but I was sort of disoriented, and that gave the dog enough time to get out.Option two is the ‘assumptive’ approach where both somehow ‘know’ they are in a relationship without any words.And then option three is the ‘may as well be in a relationship’ where either girl or boy simply points out that they are as good as ‘girl/boy friends’ so why not?We didn't realize it until after we both walked away from the table. It was dark and we were running late, and I didn’t think anything of it. We had managed to avoid the whole ‘boyfriend/girlfriend’ talk for the last few weeks.
It wasn’t awkward at the time but definitely awkward to realize later since I'm sure she noticed it.” 2. Before we were going to go see my girlfriend’s parents, we wound up fooling around in the backseat of her car. The back seat was pretty cramped and all, and after I pulled out, I wound up getting blood on my pants. Her parents were supposed to be gone shopping all afternoon so of course I came over for sex.
The Philippines has one very unique aspect of culture when it comes to relationships and dating.
Filipino dating culture may be in sync with the rest of humanity in the beginning stages of dating and courtship only perhaps a little more conservative.
Now as things get serious, the guy would want to introduce his girl to the parents and likewise with the girl.
According to Filipino dating protocol, it is expected that the two hang out at either homes and spend time with the family. As early as this, parents and family members on both sides are aware of the relationship and hopefully ‘approve’ of it.
This was freshman year of college so we’d have sex anywhere we had some privacy. We’re doing our thing and then — you guessed it — her parents come home.
