    The next step, after talking to your girlfriend about meeting her mother, is to plan for that meeting
    You need to know the date and time of the meeting as well as the place. You can decide to go to her home or invite her for lunch or dinner to your place or restaurant. The restaurant is probably a better choice as your place might make her feel at a disadvantage. This stage is crucial because her mother will be able to guess if you are responsible enough for her daughter, depending on how you manage your time. During that day, you should be able to keep time to prove that you can manage your time well.

Whatever you finish with, make it polite.

Sorry, let me know how to ask permission from my love boy's parents?

Need to ask permission from my boy lover's mom. I have tried: I told his sister about his close relationship. I think it was caused by: I don't know what to do, so please help me

If you have an interest in their son, write them a note requesting a meeting. Suggest a date and time along with the location. During the meeting with them, lay out how you would like to court their son. Be ready to answer any personal questions they may have, no matter how personal. They will also want to know what intentions you have regarding this relationship. You may also want to have your parents involved, if this is a normal practice in your culture.

Sir, I am from India and I'm in a sensitive relationship.

Sir, I love a girl so much. We are in love and her mother found out yesterday. Today, I am going to talk to her on phone. She had a love image of my mother's sister's family, how to approach and get her acceptance. I have tried: Nothing. I think it was caused by: My lover was caught red handed by her mom.

The best thing to do would be to show your girlfriend's mother how much you love her daughter. Perhaps explain your future plans and goals with her mother to prove that you are going to do the best you can to provide for her daughter. Your sneaking around was not the best way to approach a relationship with her family so you will need to be as upfront as possible with her mother. Apologize for disrespecting her by your sneaky behavior with her daughter. Tell her that you wish to show her respect from now on.

My girlfriend's parents don't like me, and do not want their daughter to date me. What is the best way to change their mind?

Like what is the best way to let their daughter date me because their daughter loves me. They know a lot about me and they hate me. How do I get them to like me? Because this one explains how to get a girl's parents to like you when they don't know you. My girl's parents know me and they hate me, help with that. I have tried: Nothing because I don't know what to do. I haven't done anything cause I honestly have ZERO clues on what to do right now. I don't know if they'd yell at me or something. I think it was caused by: I might've been a bad friend to her, and been a bad boyfriend to past girlfriend's, but I've changed since then, that's why they probably hate me.

All you can do is show them that you have changed and only have the best intentions towards their daughter. It will take some time but just keep proving yourself as much as possible. Eventually, they will begin to notice that you are trying to do the right thing.
