Parents strict about dating
If her parents could check up on you at any given time during a date, try to make sure you line up with the rules.
It’s difficult for a parent to warm up to you if he doesn’t know you at all.
And while I love to obey and follow all my parent's rules, as a 20-something year old woman, I have needs, wants, and desires.
I can’t supress my womanly urges because my parents told me so.

It might be hard to believe, but her parents were teens once, too.
Back in the old days (and in some cases today) parents pick a suitable spouse for their children based on what they thought was best for their kids.
Both my parents met each other on their wedding day (but that’s a story for a different article).Either you're too old and you should have been married yesterday or you're too young and you can’t even look at the opposite sex until you're ready to get married.Marriage is literally the most important thing that will ever happen in life if you are Indian. Dating is one of those grey areas that I feel is probably the biggest conflict among immigrant parents and Western born children.Personally, I don’t even let my parents pick my clothes, do you really think I would allow them to pick my husband?Times have changed since my parents were in their 20's.Growing up with strict Indian parents, I found a way to find loopholes in their rules.If you have strict parents like mine, maybe these little loopholes can help you have a life without getting in trouble with your parents.Watch out for displays of affection, particularly in your girlfriend’s home, by finding out what’s acceptable ahead of time -- holding hands might be OK, but cuddling up in front of the TV might be a definite no-no in front of Mom and Dad.Following the rules isn't only about avoiding trouble -- that's just a perk.During your meeting, pay special attention to your manners, minding your Ps and Qs and listening attentively when her parents are speaking. curfew might irk you sometimes, staying out late isn’t going to work out for either of you in the long run.When her parents lay down the law, stay on the lawmaker’s good side by following the rules to a T, and don’t encourage your girlfriend to cross the boundaries on her own.
