Meeting his parents
Find a Conversation

This my bf's (of six months) family is coming into town. They are very close. I wasn't sure if he was going to ask me to meet them this time around and I would understand why. Anyway, he did. So sat I think we are going out to dinner and it's his mom's birthday.
So, the first question is, should I get her anything? Maybe something small? Flowers?
The second question is something I'm sure most of you have experienced at one time or another. When the check comes, do you just grab it and assume you are going to put in your share? My bf and I are very independent financially. We often pay for each other's things, but a lot of the time I just pay for my own thing (movie, dinner). I don't expect them, or him to pay for my share, but I guess it still feels funny and awkward around "parental" type figures. Does that sound weird? Anyway, so what is the etiquette here in this type of situation?
