Meeting a partner's parent is a subtly significant moment in every relationship. So it often takes time before partners do so.

Dear Bukky.

I sent this from Ibadan. My girlfriend of three weeks is trying to lure me to her parents.

Her mother called me some days back that she wanted to see me and I was so surprised because I didn't see that coming.

My girl actually made a call to her mom when we were together and she told me to speak with her mother and that was when the mother made the demand.

My question is that does it make any sense for her mother to invite me and do I need to go alone?

My girlfriend said we should go together but I was thinking of going with my friend. The relationship is just 3 weeks o!

Dear reader,

I’d say this thing depends on how close the lady is to her mum and how involved her mother is in her life.

In my opinion, three weeks is too short to be making such demands.

Personally, I won’t like anyone’s parents asking to see me just after three weeks of meeting such person. I won’t even allow my parents do that to the person I’m dating.

But then, people are different and I understand this.

So if you have no qualms with meeting the woman, go ahead and meet her and go with a friend if that’s what will make you comfortable.

Meeting after such short time is strange but does not necessarily mean it’s a wrong move. If you are sure of the girl and you intend to actually make things work with her for as long as possible, then I think you should do things that will make her happy.

This looks to me like something that will bring her some happiness.
