*Back when I was dating my husband…I waited until I was ‘sure’ that things were headed in a serious direction. I introduced them before we were engaged. I think personally, I’d like to know the people my kids are dating before they take that serious step towards engagement…I am close with my kids, I’m hopeful they will wish to keep their dad and me in the loop, once they become serious with someone, someday.
That said…if you are exclusive, and would like to share the news about it with your parents, I don’t see anything wrong with that. I think it could be a good thing, provided you feel that it’s heading in a positive direction.
I made the mistake back in college, of sharing with my family, about every boy I dated…and I learned that that wasn’t wise, that they looked at me as fickle, and I started to get a reputation in my own family! So, from that experience, I submit to you to perhaps only share a relationship with your parents that you feel is serious enough to do so…or at least exclusive. I know how it is…sometimes, parents ask…‘so, are you dating anyone?’ And you don’t want to say no…or you don’t know what to say.
I hope it goes well, and that things works out. Hypothetically speaking, once again. :D*
