<p>I'm a guy, btw. I don't know my how my parents would react, though I did mention nonchalantly to my mother yersterday that I now have a boyfriend. It was hard to tell how she reacted (she quickly changed the subject, but I don't think this necessarily means that she didn't approve of it). What would you do if you were in my situation? Just bring him home and see how it goes? I could also postpone this meeting for another time...</p>
<p>You soooooo do not want my opinion on this</p>
<p>It's common courtesy to ask your parents' permission to bring someone home.</p>
<p>NO PDA. If your parents are uncomfortable with your orientation, it will make them MORE uncomfortable if you are in their face about it. Be respectful of them.. (I actually was going to write the same thing when I was assuming it was a heterosexual relationship, so don't think I'm being a homophobe. Parents in general can be a little uncomfortable with their childrens sexuality.)</p>
<p>But yea, if you ARE going to do it, definitely ask them, since it is their home. Not everyone is okay with homosexuality and if they do not want to be a part of it i think that you should respect that and keep that part of your life on the DL.</p>
<p>Make out with him at the dinner table, opposite grandma.</p>
<p>Serious answer: Don't just bring him home. Have, at the very least, a brief chat with your folks to see where they stand on it. It is their house, after all.</p>
<p>its kinda of early..isn't it?
but i agree w/ no pda.
you should talk to your parents about it first.</p>
<p>don't listen to sheed, he's a homophobic maniac. i hate his mindset. blah.</p>
<p>are your parents outside the range of acceptably liberal for this type of thing?</p>
<p>personally, i say why create drama. keep your new life with your boyfriend separate from your parents.</p>
<p>at least she didn't scream and cry</p>
<p>excellent comeback, you homophobic freak of nature. i could come up with that response while drunk.. on beer that makes you bigoted. :D</p>
<p>I'm not going to deny it..i'm just booing you </p>
<p>you don't like my mindset....ehhhh, i guess not a lot of people do...but whatever. everyone's entitle to their own opine</p>
<p>wow, interesting. tell me about your world views, sheed.</p>
<p>My world views? I hate answering broad questions..just ask me a specific question, and ill answer it....</p>
<p>okay. what do you think of:
imposing your beliefs on others
<p>are you homophobic too?
or maybe i'm just repulsive.
or maybe i'm just open-minded and not all know-it-allish :D</p>
