Always Leave 'Em Wanting More
At the end of a visit, according to Casperon, you should give thanks for a wonderful time physically as well as verbally. The etiquette expert, from Mannersplace.com, says, "Touching is very important. If the mother isn't a very affectionate sort, don't kiss her but do give a hug." And what of Lexi, who committed the cardinal sin of not sending a post-visit thank-you note? She recalls, "I was really, really nervous the second time I went to Craig's parents house. But things went well and you can bet when I got back home I sent a thank-you card!"
