If you thought putting your best foot forward when meeting your partner's parents for the first time was important, get ready to take things to a whole new level when you join in on the family getaway. While that original meeting may have given you the opportunity to make a great first impression, being a guest on your partner’s family vacation is actually a lot more meaningful, as Diana Dorell, intuitive dating coach and author of The Dating Mirror: Trust Again, Love Again, tells Elite Daily. "The fact that they have invited you to be part of a family vacation says a lot," she says. "Essentially, they are seeing how you mesh as being 'part of the family,' and how you are received and conduct yourself will play a part in how their family views you and how they see you as a part of their future."
OK, deep breaths. All of this may sound like a ton of pressure, but here's the good news: It's actually not that difficult to be a good guest and make a great impression on bae’s family, even while traveling. Basically, it just comes down to being polite, staying respectful, and having a positive attitude. Here is how the experts say to be on your very best first family vacay behavior.
