10 People Confess Their Most Embarrassing, Awkward And Cringeworthy Stories Meeting Their Partner's Parents

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.

An Open Letter To The Girl In A Toxic Relationship Who Doesn't See The Signs To Let Go

"it took letting go to realize that I was holding onto nothing" -R.H Sin


Dear you,

I hope you're doing well. I once thought I was too. I once thought that if he would just change, for me, everything would work. However, my sweet girl, you should not have to change people, you should not have to push people to be better, for you. You cannot help anyone, that does not want to help themselves.

In the movies, we learn to love a bad boy that needs changing. However, it isn't always your job to be boys saving grace. However, his shaming and emotional abuse is not just something you should put up with so that you can love him. That is not loving.

Love is not a constant competition of who could belittle the other one first. Love is not asking for a hug and being told no. Love does not make you feel stupid for bringing up things that hurt your feelings.

Love does not grow angry because you talk to your mom about your feelings. Love does not body shame. Love does not constantly change the passcode to their phone.

Love does not laugh when you find out they're unfaithful. Love does not tell you that you are not smart enough to accomplish anything. Love does not force their hand up your thigh when the words "no" slip out of your mouth.

Love is the warmth of a hand on your cheek when you get anxious. Love is getting your backpack out the car for you. Love is turning around when you need them. Love compromises.

Love is encouraging. Love is proud. Love is forgiving. Love sees you for who you are. Love knows you are worthy.

God is your Father and you are His daughter, so do not believe for one second that this abuse is the love you think you deserve.

Love will not always be easy. Love will be challenging and a constant prayer to not anger so quickly.

However, do not mix up challenging with the abuse. If you are losing the good pieces of yourself, then it isn't love. I know that you put a lot of time and effort into this relationship, but it is no good, you are holding on to someone whose heart is not in the right place to love you.

I connected with a poem from R. H. Sin, once I left my toxic relationship which reads, "it took letting go to realize that I was holding onto nothing."

Darling girl, you are so loved by so many people, do not let this relationship hold you back or make you feel less worthy than you are. I have always been the girl with her nose stuck up in the air smelling for smoke, to follow the trail to a burning house to find a boy that needed saving, but it is more than likely a boy that lit the fire in the first place and needs changing.

So, do not be me, be better. Be the girl that lights her own world on fire, for her work, for her family, for God. You are you and you are amazing, so do not fear being without him.

You will feel as if you have come up for air after drowning in an ocean that you had no idea you were swimming in.

The emotional abuse that this boy has put you through and maybe even physical abuse will leave you building walls around your heart. It will make other relationships hard, but you are so so strong.

You will meet someone that makes you so happy and feel so easy to love, you will never understand how you stuck around with the one that hurt you for so long.

You deserve to grow from this, and I promise you will.

Let go.

Being Far Away From My Boyfriend Actually Strengthened Our Relationship Instead Of Forcing It Apart

While we were apart, we became closer.


Before I really start this article, I just want to say that my relationship isn't truly a long distance relationship. We are both college students at the same university eight months out of the year, but the other four months we live quite a distance apart. Even during those four months, we are only about 150 miles from each other as the bird flies, but really about three hours from each other.

Being in a relationship where I'm not able to see my boyfriend every day or even every week has been a real challenge. But it's been a good challenge. It hasn't been a challenge because I've felt unfaithful or fallen out of love with him in any way. It's challenging because I miss him. We both work jobs and our schedules aren't the same and oftentimes we aren't able to talk to each other unless it's early in the morning or late at night. There are times when all I want to do is talk to him and tell him about how my day went and get a big bear hug from him. Unfortunately, I'm not really able to do this.

I firmly believe that being apart from each other for days, weeks, or even months have brought us closer than we could've ever imagined. We knew that this would be difficult, and we knew that there would be bad days, but we decided to power through it. It has made each time that we are able to see each other so much more special and meaningful.

Seeing each other has become more of spending time with each other than just laying around on the couch playing around on our phones. It's become really getting to know each other better and catching up on all the things we had missed. It's become a time for us to simply be in each other's presence and enjoy being able to talk face to face without a phone in the middle of us. We go on more adventurous dates, we take more pictures, and I think we would both easily say that we fall more and more in love with each other after each opportunity we have to spend time together.

Spending time together is no longer a daily activity, but it has become a right to be earned through hard work and several paychecks as travel can become expensive. We no longer take opportunities to see each other for granted, and it has made us grow closer because we aren't able to spend time together often. We look forward to the days when we won't have to worry about being apart but know that this is only a stepping stone in our relationship.
