You should be the best version of yourself without trying too hard…
So you’ve found the man you’ve been waiting for your whole life. He’s smart, successful, great looking, and in shape. Best of all, he asked you to be his girlfriend! Now you just have to make sure everyone in his life likes you as much as you like him.
Here’s a few tips from a matchmaker on making nice with the important people in his life:
Your boyfriend’s parents are extremely important. One way to make sure they love you is to always dress appropriately. It’s better to err on the safe side, and dress conservatively. You can never go wrong with a simple dress and heels.
You should always demonstrate that you’re well-mannered and polite. All parents want their children dating someone smart, so make sure you’re aware of what’s going on in the world. You should read the newspapers on a daily basis anyway. But, if you don’t, brush up on them so you can be in the know.
Last but not least, if you’ve been invited to his parents’ home, it won’t hurt to take something small along. Flowers, a bottle of wine, or a candle are my go-to token gifts.
If your man has siblings, you want their approval too…
You should be the best version of yourself without trying too hard.
I have a younger sister and she hates it when the men I date smother her with attention. She finds it awkward and uncomfortable. So if your boyfriend has younger siblings, get to know them without trying too hard. Even if they’re still quite young, they’ll be able to sense it. If your beau has an older brother or sister, don’t try to be their best friend either. Be friendly and get to know them, but ease into the relationship. If you seem obsessed with being their best friend too soon, they’ll just end up thinking you’re a freak.
Friends are almost as important as family, and most men care what their friends think of their new girl more than they’d like to admit. The best way to ingratiate yourself is to just be yourself. Make sure you’re easy-going and fun to be around. No one likes a high-maintenance gal.
So now that you know how to make everyone in your man’s life fall in love with you, do it. Show them how special you are. Happy Dating!
