I'm 32 and I feel like a teenager.
We have been dating for 7 weeks now.
He invited me for a meal with his parents tonight but I thought it was too soon..I don't know what I want and what this is yet.
I've said another time but I'm terrified about meeting them.
He is 36 and his parents seem lovely from what I've heard.
Is this normal?

Is it normal? I could be, depending on the situation.

But based on this ... but I thought it was too soon..I don't know what I want and what this is yet. it sounds like it's too soon in this situation.

My parents are a bit tricky, so I tended to leave it a while before introducing them to boyfriends, however, if he's very close to his folks, and they're good, easy, company, then I can see it might feel natural to introduce you to them earlier.

But what really matters is how you feel, and it sounds like you feel like it's too much, too soon.

Question: does he live with them?

He doesn't no.
He has his own house.

I'd be very surprised after 7 weeks. Have you spent a lot of that time together?

He probably really likes you and sees your relationship as going somewhere positive.

I think you should woman up at the age of 32! What's the big deal? Unless he's more into you than you are him..?

I dunno, it's nerve wracking as you want to make a good impression but I've always been excited to meet the people that created somebody I'm crazy about and get to know their family!

Seven weeks is early though, maybe your gut is onto something.

I second the view of what's the big deal? You're a grown woman in your 30s, FGS. His parents are just people. Surely you don't freak out like this meeting other people. Your boyfriend seems like a nice guy who has nice parents and he would like for you to meet them. Seriously, relax.

Maybe a drink or coffee (with tickets for a show so that it can't drag on) would be a quick and relaxed way to say hi.

They are just people. Just by meeting them doesn’t mean you have to get married and have babies anytime soon. Go and have a great time!

However, if you think it’s too soon then don’t go!
