Whether you’re just dating or ready to make it official, it’s always important to get along with your special someone’s friends and family. These people are incredibly important to your partner, and (in the best case scenario) will become a big part of your life.
Do yourself a favor and get started off on the right foot by making a great first impression with parents, siblings and friends. The following list includes easy ways to start up – or keep going – a good relationship with the people your partner cares about.
Mom: If you get invited over to meet the parents, bring some kind of hostess gift to his or her mother to show appreciation. Even better, if you’re thinking about planning an upcoming birthday or holiday gift or celebration, ask the mother for ideas. The key is to demonstrate that you’re thoughtful, considerate and will treat your partner well.
Dad: Show him that you’re respectful, sincere and mature. How? Don’t boast or brag about accomplishments. Instead, try asking his advice on a financial matter, or thoughts about a goal you have. You’ll show that you’re thinking long term, that you’re going places, and that you value his judgment.
Siblings: It’s best to treat the siblings like you would his or her friends, but with a little extra care. Be on your best behavior, but be open and friendly. Also, remember that if they tease your partner to never to get in on that action. You probably don’t know exactly what the family rules and dynamics are yet. Also remember that sibling relationships are sometimes close in a way that other relationships can’t be – because they’ve been built over a lifetime. Instead, be supportive and when all else fails, keep a sense of humor.
The Best Friend: Just be genuine, and don’t be jealous of the time they spend together – without you. You want to be friendly, but not try too hard. Your partner’s best friend will feel less like you’re going to monopolize their friend with the new relationship – which they’ll appreciate – and you’ll also show the friend that you’re a good person that will easily fit into the group.
The Pet: This can be tricky, if you have allergies or don’t like dogs or cats. Always start off by being friendly to the animal. Let it sniff you, and offer it a treat if your partner has one for it. If you don’t really love the pet, be sure to break the news gently.
A few final words of friendly advice — Act with confidence, be friendly and respectful. If you keep those three things in mind, you’re sure to impress and get along with everyone in any situation.
If you’re ever unsure what to do, just talk to your partner about it. Just letting him or her know that you want to impress the people they care about will go a long way to win them over – which is what really counts here in the long run!
