the dat­ing game

Townsville Bulletin - - Savvy -

In­tro­duc­ing your girl­friend / boyfriend to your par­entsisa de­ci­sion that re­quires tim­ing and pre­ci­sion. Too quick and you may scare your new­found love off, but wait too long and they might start to ques­tion the se­ri­ous­ness of the re­la­tion­ship. We asked one Savvy bach­e­lor when he thought the time was­right and then asked the op­po­site sex for their opin­ion. Trent Fel­lows, 20, Cairns: I guess it de­pends on the per­son. I’d wait a month but I might do it quicker If I thought it was go­ing to be se­ri­ous. Jes­sica Gor­nalle, 20, Bush­land Beach: It de­pends on how se­ri­ous it is. If you think it’s go­ing to be long-term you’d in­tro­duce them, but if it’s just a bit of fun I wouldn’t at all. I’d wait a month. Gunn Bratland, 22, North Ward: Straight away — why wouldn’t you? If it’s your girl­friend or boyfriend you should feel proud and happy about them, so why wait? Sa­man­tha Cooper, 17, Rosslea: I’d wait about four to five months just to make sure he re­ally liked me be­fore I in­tro­duced him. Plus, I wouldn’t want to scare him away with my crazy fam­ily.
