I can’t tell you how many people tweet me asking me for love advice. Yes, I have a great relationship and great relationships take a whollllllllllllleeeeeeeeee lot of work! So, I decided why not team up with my best friend and answer some of the questions I get from both his AND her perspectives.
Dear Meeka and Speedy,
I’ve been dating “Shawn” for almost 5 months and I’ve never met anybody in his family. He lives with his mom and sister but we only go to his house when no one is home. I know all of his friends and they all say that his family is very overprotective of him and they don’t like any girl. I don’t want to be a nag but I think his mom and sister would love me. Am I being paranoid?
Meeka: It’s still early in your relationship. Guys care a lot about how the women in their lives perceive them and he may just be taking time to make sure that what you two have is serious before introducing you. If he introduced his family to a different girl every 2 months, they’d probably stop wanting to meet his latest conquest. So, give him a little more time before you start flipping out. If at six months, you still haven’t met them then it’s time to have a talk or just see other people because he’s not taking you seriously.
Speedy: I disagree. The truth of the matter is that you aren’t his main girl. Plain & simple. Every girl gets to meet the friends. No offense, but there’s nothing special in that. If at 5 months, he’s still sneaking you in and out of the house, it’s because he has a main girl and you aren’t her.
There you have it, advice Claxton style Xoxo
