We've all had that point in our life where we've met someone we really like and continue to get to know them and everything and then comes the day they ask you to meet their parents. It's pretty nerve-wracking because to some people, if their parents don't like you, then you'll probably break up. Many of us have had fine experiences though I'm sure, but not everybody. I went around and asked if anybody had any humiliating stories about meeting someone else's parents, and boy did I sure find some interesting stories.
Here are 10 people's most embarrassing meeting the parents stories:
1. Female, Age 18
"After shortly bring my boyfriend (at the time) home, my dad waved the knife he was washing at him. He pointed the knife and said 'behave.' He didn't mean it in a mean or threatening way, but was just telling us to be good due to the fact that we were on our way out."
2. Female, Age 19
"We had just gotten done doing the dirty. I was grabbing pants when the mom walked in to say hi to me for the first time. Caught red handed, red faced, with my breeches down."
3. Male, Age 19
"When I first met my ex's parents everything was going well until I said, "oh my God." They proceeded to give me a lecture on saying gods name in vain and they made me sit in a corner to think about what I did. It was during their family barbecue—imagine meeting everyone and saying one word and then having to sit in a corner."
4. Male, Age 19
"When I first met an ex-girlfriends dad, it was when I was sneaking into her house and I was in bed with her, he walked in and I officially met him in my boxers. Didn't like coming over to her house after that night."
5. Male, Age 20
"I had known her for a long time and had briefly met her parents in passing before we started dating. A couple months after we started, her brothers and their girlfriends, and her parents invited me over for game night and drinks. I seemed to get along with everyone just great for most of the night. Well, later on, my girlfriend had way too much to drink and ended up blurting out that we had sex. Needless to say I got the quite the talk from her dad and brothers that night."
6. Female, Age 19
"I got to know this boy my freshman year of high school and I really liked him. Well, I never have done more than kissing at this time and when we started kissing on the bed and stuff I ended up leaving him two huge hickies on his neck. He left and the next day or two I got a text saying that he was never allowed to see me again because his parents said so because of the hickies. So, I never really met his parents, but that was the first time I encountered them."
7. Male, Age 28
"Her dad was my supervisor at work. A year prior to dating her I asked him to introduce me to his 18-year-old daughter and he refused. You could say it was quite awkward when she brought me home for the first time... and it didn't help that I was high on marijuana either."
8. Female, Age 21
"I started dating this guy and it was about four months until I met his parents. Well, he invited me to his cousin's wedding where I would meet his parents and his whole family. I met his parents and everything was going good until later in the night. I ended up drinking too much and threw up all over the dinner table. He never spoke to me again after that."
9. Male, Age 19
"I was getting to know this girl who I really liked and she invited me over to dinner. I came over way before dinner to hang out with her when no one was home. I told her I wanted to run home before dinner because I needed to shower, but she insisted that I could shower at her house. We ended up hopping in the shower together and going all the way in there. We were in the middle of it and we heard a knock at the door... it was her dad and he heard everything. I was no longer invited to dinner anymore that night."
10. Male, Age 23
"I'm just going to start out with that I used to get around a lot until I met the woman of my dreams. I was with the last girl about three weeks before I met my future girlfriend. Everything was going great, the first encounter with her parents was good as well. A few days later I got a call from the girl I was previously with a couple weeks before and she told me she had gonorrhea and I should get checked. I got checked and it came back positive and luckily for me I wasn't sexually active with my new girl yet. I was cool with it, just some medication and it should be gone soon. I went to the pharmacy and I sh*t you not, her mom was the pharmacist there. I wanted to die right there in line. I got my medicine and I could tell her mom was disgusted with me. I told my new girl what happened and she totally understood which was really cool. I didn't go over to her house for months after that, but everything is good now so I can't complain much. Her mom even jokes about it sometimes with me."
As you can see, some of those people quite don't hit it off the first time with the parents, let alone knew they were going to meet them that day. All in all, we've all had some pretty embarrassing moments in front of someone and we somehow have to let them go at some point, some of the parents even got over it and poke fun of it! You can always find the good in the bad.
