    Deciding what to wear is only half the battle.

    1. So your SO's family is having a party at their house this weekend and they've been kind enough to invite you!

    3. It's no big deal, you're only gonna meet them for the first time. NOTHING to worry about.

    4. You search your closet for the most appropriate attire for this ~very important~ meet up.

    "Does this make me look fat, or like a worthless tramp who would hurt their child? Or both?"

    5. You and your SO come up with a plan on how to ~touch~ each other in front of the folks.

    "OK so how do we hold hands without implying that we're having animal sex three times a week?"

    6. You stress way too hard on what housewarming gift you should give them.


    7. Then you finally arrive at their house and you don't wanna leave your SO's arms.

    8. But then your SO's dad is coming right at you and you don't know whether to hug, kiss, or shake hands.

    9. For the nth time, you wonder if you should've worn that other shirt instead.

    10. You're not sure what to do with all the attention they're giving you, so you try to accept it as humanely as possible.


    11. When they ask about your job, you try so hard to explain it to them in the simplest way.

    "'BuzzFeed'? What's that?"

    12. When they ask you about your own family, you don't know where to start.


    "Oh! You know, they're not as nice as you HAHA."

    13. When there's a baby in the family, you try your best to charm everyone and make it laugh.
