Maybe you have for a long time avoided meeting up with your fiancee’s family. Well truth is, first impressions can make or break a relationship.
All we are trying to say is that there is better reason to impress them now before you know, they finally become future in laws.
This is the first time they are meeting the guy or the lady they may be dealing with for decades. It’s a big moment
There are reasons why first impressions matter.
We have highlighted why this is the case,
1. Show of commitment
Most of the times when they get to see your partner, it’s a sign that you want to commit to their child.
That is a sign that they will be seeing you for a long while, if not forever.
This improves the relationship that you may be trying to build with your in laws and this first step is very important.
2. It is a judge of character
Most the times, when the in laws are meeting you for the first time, they simply want to know who you are.
Questions here and there from them may deduce the kind of person that you are.
Well in laws may tend to push buttons once in a while, but basically all they want is to get to know you better.
3. In laws influence your partner
Now this is the part I would want to insist on.
Making good relationships with your in-laws is very important.
This is because , no matter how connected you are to your partner, they may have an upper hand in influencing them.
This however should not keep you off balance from making that decision to see them, creating that good connection and balance between the two of you could go a long way.
4. They will be around you
Planning forever with your partner means planning forever with the family as well.
This only means that they will be around you for as much time as possible.
Through out the meeting stages, it is important to create a good rapport with them because this not only means a relationship with your partner, it means a future relationship with their whole family.
Thus you need to have a good relationship with them before that life time.
5. You just genuinely want them to like you
Is this not everyone’s hope?
To just be liked and loved by the family of the person you want to spend forever with ?
On that first meeting above everything, all we want is to make that first connection that will last.
