You Suck If You Don’t Let Your Family Be Themselves When You Bring A Girl Home!

It’s true; if you don’t let your family be themselves when you bring a girl home to meet them, then you just flat out SUCK!

Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying that your family should go OVERBOARD in trying to embarrass you on purpose; that would be a dick move. BUT, you shouldn’t stifle their thoughts and ideas in the hopes of making sure your girl still likes you.

Because to be honest, I’d rather have my family be exactly who they are. I’d rather have my Uncles make the funny jokes about me that they do. I’d rather have drinks being poured with enjoyment, instead of fear that a drunk family member will do something stupid.

And if she has a shitty time in the process, then so be it.

But, what would happen IF my family tried to be on their best behavior? And, WHAT IF the girl that I brought home actually had a fun time?

………THAT WOULD SUCK! That would literally be the WORST outcome for EVERYONE INVOLVED! I mean, think about it for a second; she’s not seeing the “real you” when it comes to how you and your family acts. And if she actually has a great time while you’re family’s on their “best behavior,” then you’re basically stuck in a rut for the rest of the time you two are dating. It would become a NEVER ENDING CYCLE!

Not only that, my family is pretty damn funny if I do say so myself. If I were to make them something that they’re not, then that’s not doing them any justice. If I were to make them “class up” a certain story about me, then that wouldn’t do their particular story any justice either.

Bottom line is; if she’s someone that you have to cater to/make sure everything goes her way……..get rid of her. Your family will thank you, and YOU will thank you when it’s all said and done.


Have you ever told your family to “just be normal” before bringing a girl home to meet them? Let me know in the comments below, or on my twitter at @KShermanSports
