This way, there's no pressure to be a "certain" way and you can be yourself while getting to know your "date". Introduce your date to your parents: Sure, this may sound like a bummer, but it's a must. You want to build trust and confidence with your parents. One sure way to do so is to introduce your date to your parents. Let them get to know each other. Your parents will certainly feel more comfortable in knowing who you will be going out with.
