A 20yr old man should be looking for girls closer to his own age. At your age 4yrs is too much.

Just goes to show how parents don't do right by their kids these days!

followtheblackrabbit agony auntYes, his parents might not apreciate the age gap so it's crucial that their first impression of you shows that you are not immature. Wear something tasteful, but nothing too fancy (shows you're trying too hard). You can wear a pair of nice jeans and a blouse (no deep cleavage) and a pair of nice shoes (no sneakers). Be yourself and relax but remember, these are his parents so you can't really be the self that you are around your friends. Be polite. If you have dinner, offer to help clear the table or help wash the dishes. Be sincere. Don't gush over a table lamp you find hideous just because his mum worships it :p Fakeness brings your value down. If they ask about school and your plans, have answers ready in your head and don't be afraid to mention you are an honor student if you are (modestly). If the age issue comes up, don't get defensive/ offensive. Just listen quietly, tell them you understand their concern but that you and your bf are both serious in making things work despite this factor. Good luck!
