So, I've been friends with this guy for about a couple of years, but we been dating for a little while now. He's been a great friend and someone that I enjoy being around. He's got a nice little career going, he's super respectful, takes care of his two daughters, and I'm just comfortable with him.

Also, the big thing that attracts me to him, is that he is someone I could actually see myself introducing to my parents and I know my parents would like.

However, I don't want to rush into him meeting my parents just yet. I've only introduced maybe 4 guys to my parents and each one, except my daughter's dad and an ex, they didn't like the other two. One time they took myself and a guy I had been seeing out to a nice dinner. As soon as the guy went to the bathroom my parents told me to get rid of him and that he was ugly and no good for me.
Another guy, my dad put up with him for some time and eventually told him to stay away from me and never to come by the house again. And my dad has been known to cuss guys out behind my back and then later denies it ever happening....
So, I'm super nervous about ever introducing any guy to my parent's especially my father. They are very judgmental about appearances, finances, and so on...Which I'm glad for at times....

Anyways, when is it a good time to introduce a guy...3 months into the relationship, 6 months, a year? Or right around the time he proposes?

I haven't introduced a guy to my folks in a long time...

when you feel its right. a few months usually is reasonable. also be aware of how he's introduced....how u act n speak of dude...you may play a role in the impression ya folks have by how u speak of dude, your plans for the immediate future, etc etc

The only person that I talk to about him is my mom...I almost never talk to my dad about a guy, because he isn't interested in hearing about it....

My mom seems interested in who he is....After I told her about him, that he's a little older, bigger and has a good job...She was like just last night I prayed you'd meet and older guy who was big enough to put up with you lol

My rule is if we are pass the point of casual dating. If we both know that we are not dating just to be doing something, and it might lead to marriage, then I wouldn't mind introducing him. I would say as long as it is a serious relationship with some time under your belt, then I would think that it would be a good thing, like another level. That is why none of my boyfriends have ever met my parents, lol!

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl

Thank you for the welcome. I have a question. I am a doctorate student in need of participants for my study. Is it allowable to post a request for study participants. If so, this is the post that would be uploaded:
