How To Let Your Parents Know About Your Boyfriend
I've been dating my boyfriend for a little less than 5 months. We have radically different approaches to how much we tell our respective parents (for what it's work, we're both in our late twenties). I talk to my parents a few times a week and let them know a few weeks in that I was dating someone. He hasn't let. When I lived at home, I didn't tell my parents I was dating until I was official with someone. I'd just say I was out with friends, and I would leave with people from campus or work. Well, hopefully you have a good relationship with your parents and you can talk to them about dating. If you do, then go ahead and talk to them. You might be surprised but they give pretty good advice! I'm assuming your dating someone around your own age. If you're dating someone more than a couple of years older than.

This is mainly just a curiosity thing, just to take a break from all the drama threads! So the question is pretty simple. You start dating someone, how long after you start dating them do you tell your parents?
How to Start Talking to Your Parents About Your First Relationship
I realize that this can vary greatly from person to person, which is why I'm curious! Share Share this post on Digg Del. Well I'm pretty close with my parents and I talk to them on almost a daily basis so if the guy has potential I usually tell them at least my mom after the first couple of good dates. If it doesn't at least come up in conversation with my mom by date 3 it's probably not going anywhere.
I typically never talk to my parents about this. To this day, they only know of one girl I've dated I still live at home and my mum is very involving, the kind of mum that will call me at 10pm when I'm out, "son, it's late, come home", I'm like "MUM! So she will typically have million questions about what I'm doing, and I don't like lying anymore. So she will probably know from the very beginning. Until I move out that is As for my dad, he doesn't ask as he knows I continue reading nothing to tell, when I do, I'll tell him in my own time, and I'm sure he respects that.

If my mother knows about every random OKCupid dude I go out with, it's less of a big deal than if, after years of hearing nothing about my dating life, I announce I've been seeing someone for 6 months. Or I might go on 6 dates before I see them.
I'm not big on letting them know everyone I have seen or dated, It has to progress to a level of worth mentioning, else what is the point? Depends on living conditions. If you live with one or both parents, then obviously they will know at least some of your comings and goings. They may know from Day 1. If you are not living with them I'd say after about 2 or 3 months is a good point.
As to when you introduce them to each other? Maybe 6 - 9 months or so. I don't talk about my relationships with my dad and I only tell my mother about guys after we are over. Since I don't want to hear her b. But Learn more here think things should be mentioned, even if only for your own safety When To Tell Parents Youre Dating Someone tell them whenever, I guess.
I don't wait a specific period of time or anything. I might tell them before the first date, if I happen to be at their house. Or I might go on 6 dates before I see them.
