Asian parents and dating
Questions range from ‘how soon should I meet the family? In fact, it’s better to wait until you are both talking engagement and marriage.
Introducing each other too soon may backfire especially if the relationship doesn’t work out.
But as Westernised as Singapore may be, our traditional Asian values still reign supreme.
One key relationship milestone is meeting the family, introducing your partner especially if you’re Asian signifies you are serious about each other. Introducing a partner who is outside your culture is best handled with some care and thought.
As a dating and relationship coach I am often asked how to navigate ‘meeting the family’ stage. The best way is to only introduce your partner once you are absolutely sure they are ‘the one’.
Only you will be able to make the judgement call on this.
First and foremost while your family are important, your partner comes first.
