To impress you girlfriend’s dad is not an easy feat. We’ve probably all seen movies like “Meet the Fockers” and “Why Him?”.

Impress Your Girlfriend’s Dad With The Following Suggestions
Every dad wants the best for their daughter, so first of all, you have to understand where her father is coming from. If it were you, you’d also be overprotective. But, there are ways around this. Follow these tips to break the wall between you and her father:
Talk To Her Dad Even If It Is Awkward
This doesn’t just mean small talk. Think about it as like getting to know a person you want to be friends with. That’s actually exactly what you’re aiming for. You want to be “friends” with her dad, so the first step or rule that you need to follow is you need to get to know him no matter how uncomfortable it feels.
Show Her Dad That She’s Your Equal
There’s nothing worse to a father than seeing her daughter serving a man that can’t even lift a finger for himself. Let’s say you’ve been invited over for dinner. A good example of what NOT to do is to always ask your girlfriend to get you something – honey, can you get me a glass of water, a slice of cake, a table napkin? Why don’t you get it yourself? You’re not really showing her dad that his daughter is your equal.
Spending time with your girl’s family may not be your thing, but if you want to impress your girlfriend’s dad, you need to make a habit out of it. You need to get to know your girl’s family, and they need to get to know you. One way of doing this would be to spend time with her family as often as you can so you can blend in easily.
It’s All About The Family
Please know that you cannot fake your way into impressing her dad or her family. You need to have a genuine desire to get to know them and to be part of the circle. You’d have to interact with everybody and not just sit in the corner of a room. You have to be part of the family and not feel and act like a guest.
