Dating meeting the parents
Although it depends on families, bringing a boyfriend or a girlfriend home in Japan often means the relationship is turning quite serious – potentially serious.
Whereas I met my all of my previous boyfriends’ families back in Canada after just a short while, I only met the family of one of my Japanese boyfriends.
I say it's ok after a few months of dating (4 months, but maybe i'm slow, others around my table were saying 2-4 months) We came to the conclusion that girls will almost always want the guy to meet their parents first.
Then after a little while it'll be vice versa for the girl to meet the guys side.
Because assumption is that you'll be seeing that person at least once a week if not twice (fri sat for us weekenders) and maybe some more inbetween the week for a good duration of time (4 hrs) (say 7pm-11pm outings) so crunching the numbers here and assuming the minimum 4 hr "dates" for twice a week meets that's 4 x 2 (fri sat) x 9 weeks (2 months) = 72hrs minimum...that's 3 whole days you've spent with that person, hopefully not just sleeping : P keeping in mind that's the MINIMUM time. Her Dad will soon accept that the hand you shook his hand with is the same on that was feeling up his daughter.
If you end up breaking her heart though, her brother will rip your balls off, and her dad will feed them to you.
As soon as the relationship becomes serious and you expect it to be long term, meeting the parents is something that needs to be done IMO Because when a guy introduces a girl to his parents, everyone knows: -The dad is judging her hotness (atta boy son factor) -The mom is judging her potential for wifeyness -The girl is judging the whole family picture to see how you treat your parents and what kind of family you have.
-You are seeing if she meshes well with your family, if your family accepts/approves of her, and also you are seeing another step on the commitment road achieved, bringing you one step closer to a wife, kids, and a minivan. ^^ hahah gotta love the mini van comment in there lol but in all honesty lets be realistic here...usually people will start getting "serious" by 2-4 months, and i'm not just saying bed sheets moving around but other thoughts.
His family being incredibly traditional and conservative, we knew from the start she would be one tough nut to crack.
The series is set to be hosted by Holly Willoughby, who’ll be overseeing all of the parental overshares.
“We all know how embarrassing parents can be and nobody knows you better than they do,” she says.
While the parents are being quizzed, the guys and girls hoping to be chosen see and hear everything, and have no control over what their parents are revealing.
However, if mum and dad go too far, they can make just one urgent phone call to speak to them.
