What do you do when you have to attend a holiday or an event with your lover and their parents and you aren’t a huge fan of their family? Pretty sticky icky right?! Trust me!! dinner can be very awkward, sitting in his parents front room while you awaiting for him to get ready and you can feel them giving you the side eye from across the room (loool I’ve been there before). So what do you do in awkward situations like this especially when you start to think that they don’t like you?
I’ve been waiting to talk about this for ages so here we go.
Throughout life you will discover that you may not always get along with your spouse’s family. There are a multitude of reasons why someone’s peoples may or may not like you but the important thing to keep in mind is the fact that those people are your spouse’s family and you will have to deal with them if you want to be in a relationship with him. If you’re having issues with your man’s family you should try and talk to them and see how you can work out the situation and try to change it. The family are important and no one should ever have to choose between a loved one and their family. Try to find a common ground and maintain a good attitude. Just smile and nod , out of respect keep he street slang to a minimum. (u get me lool) You be surprised continually doing this will slowly break down the barriers. Most of the time when family members do this is because they are being protective. Maybe something happened in the past with someone else so they do not readily welcome new people into their zone. You will find that as they get to now you and you are always polite that they will start to warm to you.
Have you ever been in a situation like this? We would love to hear from you on what did you do and if it worked for you?
