So Tuesday will see the first time that I meet my other half's family. Have to admit that I am nervous about is as I want them to like me and get on with me. All tips welcome as to how to loose the nerves and just be me! How did you make a good impression on the future in laws? Or are you the In laws- how did s/he impress you? Bit too late to worry now but stil....!

The first time my sister's ex fiance met the family we just got him pissed and it turned out fine Infact everytime he met up with us he'd go home drunk, it did make him more relaxed around us and endeared him to the parents. Don't think my sister was too impressed though

I reckon everybody on here will tell you to just be yourself, it attracted your other half and im sure thats the person he wants his parents to meet, maybe you could ask him what his parents like or their interests so as to give you an ice breaker and something to talk about later on.
But if all else fails, a double whiskey will calm the nerve's

I am such a lightweight if I was given booze it would end badly! There would be tears whichis ok for him to see but not his family at the first meeting

Hmmm it was over 18 months ago now but when I met my kind-of-boyfriend's parents I was just friendly and chatty... don't think I said anything dodgy I like to think I've made a good impression as they buy me Christmas and birthday presents and his mum is my friend on Facebook

True, he knows I am worried but he says they will like me- biased I assume though! me and booze is a bad mix but hopefuly it wont come to that

Really? lovely, hopefully they like me as much as your 'fellas' folks liked you! I am alwyas talkative but when nervous I shut down and cant talk, I blush like a fool and look like a total cretin!

But with your track record, you just never know - One ice breaker that just won't be matched.

Well I believe it would be safe to say that his bro's girlfriend or his sisters bloke did not break the ice in the same way but I do agree that it is one ice breaker which as you say will not be matched!!
