Well been going out with my girlfriend for just over a year and because she isn't from round here I have never met her parents. Next Sunday we are due to travel down to Leeds, go out on the town and then stay at her parents house for the night. Then we are going to the races on the Monday with them and some friends and family. Last night however she said her parents were coming up here tomorrow. They are taking her out to lunch and I am invited! I'd had a couple of pints so I said I would go. But waking up this morning I though Hmmm why would they bother coming up here when we are spending next weekend with them. Her parents are both professionals not short of money and give the impression they have high standards. So now I'm paranoid that this is some sort of vetting to see what I'm like before I'm allowed down there! Anyone else got any funny meet the parent stories or tips on how to get through a close encouter of the parent kind?
