Long until dating becomes relationship

And if it is your boyfriend who is doing the asking, dating coach Evan Marc Katz says that “any guy who feels strongly enough about you to meet your family should be allowed to meet your family.” As the relationship becomes more serious, and you integrate your boyfriend into your home life, it’s just a matter of time before he crosses paths with your family members.

When your boyfriend turns into a major part of your future, it’s time for Mom and Dad to meet the special guy who's taking up so much of your calendar space.

Because of the added pressure, Battista says, “you're probably going to want to be pretty comfortable with him.” If you aren’t quite at that stage in your relationship but still want your boyfriend to meet your parents, Battista suggests bringing him home during a lower-pressure time, such as spring break or a long weekend.

While you may feel completely responsible for making the call on when your guy should meet your parents, remember that your parents and your guy are probably contemplating it, too.

“A month after we started dating was his birthday, so since we were finished with school, I spent his birthday weekend with him and his family. ” Bringing a guy home shows that you take a genuine interest in him and plan to have a lasting relationship.
