future mother-in-law from ...

A good friend of the family let me know that this guy is interested. He's a more 'modern' guy (whatever that means) from a more 'heimish' family (again, a totally subjective term). From what I was told, he sounds like a pretty good guy, definitely someone I'd give a chance to.

Except...

His mother wants to meet me first.

What's that about?

Interesting. Probably pointless but not awful. They could both be wonderful people and it could work out great.

Sounds weird to me...
Why did he find it so necessary to stress the "heimish", and "modern" part...

And wth, why do you have to meet his mother... You're not marrying his mother... Unless there's a explanation to all of this..
It would make sense if he'd ask to meet with his mom later on when things are more serious...
All this doesn't make much sense...
I would think twice, that's my opinion........

Run away. Do not pass go, do not collect $200. Flee.

If he wants you to meet his mother...loco...
If it's his mother who wants to meet you, nothing to do with him, strange but I think fine.
Think of it as a bonus. You immediately get to know if his mother is insane or not.

dont say no MM, it's not fair on the guy. don't make the decision whether or not you'll consider spending the rest of your life with someone based on a factor that does not involve them!

shes not the one you potentially spend your life with...

The mother is probably pushing for this meeting. Don't rule out the guy just because his mom is overprotective... g'luck.

hahha a friend of mine went out on a date with a boys mother before she was able to date the boy. but then the mother said no to her, so she never actually went out with him.
its just hilarious.

personally, i would NEVER meet a boys mother before dating the boy. the mother isnt marrying me is she? and it shows what type of person this mother is (ahem ahem controlling)

hmm. maybe a guy would want to meet his future MIL to get a glimpse at what his date will look like in 20-30 years.

but seriously, this sounds weird, at least where i come from. stay away from her.

"You're not marrying his mother."

Heh. That's what you think.

On the other hand, sometimes there's a problem when you don't meet the mother until later.

So, why is it fair that a boy sometimes has to meet the parents of the girl (when he picks her up, sometimes he has to come inside the house and say hello to the parents?)....

anon- because theyre already going out on the date. this boys mother wanted to meet mm BEFORE she was allowed to schedule any date with her son
