Don’t Want to Tell Your Folks You Met on Tinder? We’ve Got You Covered

You can’t avoid it any longer.  It’s time to bring your fiancé home to meet your family.  But before you take that next step, you have to figure out how to avoid mentioning that you met on a hook-up app. Do you really want to spend dessert explaining “sexting” to grandma? Probably not. 

We’ve come up with 9 alternative scenarios for you to wax poetic about when your friends and family ask you about how you met: 

1.  An Academic Lecture on The Feminine Mystique

A guy who’s interested in feminism? He must be sensitive and deep! Your family will be so impressed with this intellectual that they’ll forget to question why you were there in there in the first place.

2.  A Q&A Screening of Groundhog Day

It’s your mother’s favorite film, so she’ll flip for his good taste. Forget the fact that he actually only watches the Transformers movies.

3. An Independent Coffee Shop

Dad will love the fact that you two met while supporting a local business. Maybe now he’ll stop nagging you about the Starbucks Gold Card you’ve had since 2008.

4. The Bar

 Not a bar, but the bar. It’s the hole-in-the-wall no-nonsense pub that your family has been frequenting for years.  It’s much better than telling the truth, that he told you he was going to put you on his “To Do” list after your pictures matched on Tinder.

5. The Gym

Mom and Dad want to know that the guy you bring home is taking care of you and himself. Too bad your family knows too well that you haven’t been inside a gym since that elliptical machine fiasco in 2004.

6. Karaoke Night

You saw him dancin’ to the grooves of the Grease soundtrack. (Oh, those summer nights!) . By the end of the night, you two were dueting to “Don’t You Want Me, Baby.” Sure, in real life he would probably be up there singing something like “Don’t Stop Believin’” or “Ice Ice Baby,” but what your family doesn’t know won’t hurt them.

7. Comic-Con

You fell for him when he quoted Dr. Who and he fell for your…well probably your provocative Pokemon cosplay.  With a meet-cute this nerdy, your family won’t bother to ask you two any more questions.

8. The Theater

You two locked eyes during intermission and by the ending ballad you were singing songs of love. It sounds classier than getting the text “You up?” at 2 in the morning.

9. Tell the Truth

Because at the end of the day, all they care about is your happiness.  Even if it’s with a guy who posted a shirtless selfie on an app in an attempt to get laid.
