10 Signs Her Parents Hate You 27/05/12

When you meet your girlfriend’s folks for the first time, it’s a good idea to look for some signals that will let you know how, or if, you’re measuring up. Some cues are fairly obvious, while others are a bit more subtle and less easy to pick up. We’re going to share with you this handy list of 10 signs that her parents hate you:

  1. When you arrive for dinner, there’s a For Sale sign on the front lawn and all the lights are out. The neighbors mention something about getting passport photos.
  2. There are suddenly new photos all over her parents’ house, of her with her old boyfriend, who’s doing 5 years for armed robbery.
  3. They decide that they want to get some family holiday photos together, and ask you to take all of them. Even though the neighbors are visiting … and they get in all the photos too.
  4. What little conversation they have with you always starts off with, “What did you say your name was again?”
  5. They spend half the night sharing stories, misty-eyed, about her last boyfriend. Including details of his trial, and the letters he writes from prison.
  6. For Christmas, they bought her a DVD of How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, and told her, “We thought of you when we saw it.”
  7. Your Christmas gift was a membership to Match.com and a recruiting brochure for the French Foreign Legion.
  8. Their ringtone for you on their mobiles is Hit The Road, Jack. Their photo for you is the Nick Nolte DUI mugshot.
  9. They are serving a buffet consisting of every food you told her that you’re allergic to, and the biggest plate is at your place setting.
  10. Your place setting, by the way, is at the kids table, with a place card that says “Visitor Pass”.
