Have you ever had any negative history with his family? Does his family hate your family?
Did you do something bad to your boyfriend’s family member? Did you use to talk bad about his family?
If there is anything bad that happened in the past between you and your boyfriend’s family then you should know that it’s the main reason why they don’t want to meet you.
They don’t want to meet you because there is negative tension between the two of you.
If you will be able to solve this issue then you will manage to meet them.
On the other hand, if you don’t have any negative history with your boyfriend’s family and they don’t want to meet you then you should ask your boyfriend what is wrong.
Your boyfriend has an idea why his family doesn’t want to meet you in the first place.
Talk to him and listen to what he has to tell you about his family.

If you have a list of the reasons why your boyfriend’s family doesn’t want to meet you then you should find the perfect solution to this issue before you think of giving up.
2. Resolve any misunderstandings that you may have with your boyfriend’s family.
If you found that your boyfriend’s family doesn’t want to meet you because of what you did in the past then you should find a way to maintain peace with them.
That is if there was a negative tension between you and your boyfriend’s family, or even if it was tension that existed between your family and his.
You will have to come up with a solution to this conflict between your boyfriend’s family and you.
The only way his family will agree to meet you, invite you to their house and have a fest with you to celebrate your relationship with him is if they are at peace with you.
No peace, no meeting them.
If this is the case then you should talk to your boyfriend so that he can help you settle things down.
Your boyfriend should serve as the mediator between his family and you.
Sit down and plan how you are going to maintain peace between the two of you and resolve the conflict.
This is what will make your boyfriend’s family willing to meet you.
On the other hand, if your boyfriend’s family doesn’t want to meet you simply because of other issues that you can’t change e.g religion, race, principles, and personality then there is nothing much you can do about this.
You can only fix things between you and his family if they are things you have control of.
But if your boyfriend’s family doesn’t want to meet you simply because they don’t like you then you can do things to get along with them.
Try to create a positive relationship with your boyfriend’s family by talking to them frequently over the phone, sending them gifts, and always offering to help them.
The best you can do is ensure that you build and support your boyfriend and show them that their brother/son/relative is in the right hands.
It can be that his family thinks you are the kind of girl who is with him just to use him for his money or ruin his life.
His family knows that if they decide to do this they will push you away from him and this will break your heart and eventually lose hope.
This will be the perfect reason to walk away from your boyfriend simply because you feel excluded from his family.
No one will be able to withstand this pressure and pain and that is why your boyfriend’s family is doing this.
So, if you can stand up and show them that you can take good care of their son/brother/relative they will respect you for that.
This will make them change their minds and perspectives about you.
Show his family that you have something to offer to their son/brother/relative and they will approve of you.
If this is the only thing that makes them not want to meet you then change things and prove them wrong.
This is what I can encourage you to do.
3. Talk to your boyfriend and come up with ways to set things straight.
If you have tried everything to make things right between you and your boyfriend’s family and things don’t seem to be working the way you want then you should talk to your boyfriend.
Your boyfriend has a very big part to play in this problem. He is the only one who has the power to influence his family positively to change their minds about meeting you up.
If your boyfriend is on your side then this will never be a problem. You will eventually meet his family through his powers.
But if your boyfriend is controlled by his family and he has no say on what they want then there is no way your boyfriend will ever make things right.
This is a tough situation you are in, you will never be able to solve this problem alone.
You have to talk to him so that he can give you a way to use or talk to his family about your issues.
If your boyfriend will stand before his family and make his stand that you are the woman he wants to be with whether they like it or not then they will have no choice but to listen to him.
They will understand him, and eventually allow you to meet them.
So, let your boyfriend know how you feel about this issue, let him know that it’s draining you out and you need him to do something about it.
Let him know that you will be ready to do anything to set things straight with his family.
Join hands and come up with ways you will use to set things right between his family and you.
Don’t keep silent and pull yourself away from this issue simply because you feel it’s beyond your reach and control.
You have to be involved too and show your boyfriend that it matters to you and this is will motivate your boyfriend to do more about this problem.
He has to see that you want to meet his family so bad and that it’s something that matters to you.
Even if it won’t happen, your boyfriend will be ready to put you first before his family.
The only way you will manage to solve this issue is if you hold hands with your boyfriend.
4. Keep on fighting for your relationship since that is the only thing that matters and not meeting his family.
What you are fighting for is something huge, it may make you forget about your part in the relationship with your boyfriend.
You can end up forgetting what you need to do to keep your relationship going simply because you are too distracted dealing with your boyfriend’s family.
You have to keep fighting for your relationship; make your boyfriend happy, support him whenever he needs you to, be there for him during his difficult times, and show him that he matters to you more than anything else.
The moment your boyfriend will realize that you are the only person who can take good care of him then he will be ready to cut his family off for you.
He will do this if he knows that you are the woman who is willing to do everything to see him smile.
The things that men can do for love are mainly influenced by how much they receive from their partners.
If your boyfriend gets everything from you, why should he care about what other people think of you?
He will never care about anything since you are the only person that matters in your life.
Your relationship with your boyfriend can go on even if his family doesn’t want to meet you.
A good example is my own family. My father married my mother but there was a big conflict between my mom and my father’s family.
But the only thing that kept the relationship going was the love they had for each other.
So, focus on building your relationship with your boyfriend, and this is what will solve this issue between the two of you.
I know you may not manage to change your boyfriend’s family mind but you will have something great that will make your boyfriend willing to take other measures to keep your relationship going.
Don’t forget that the only thing that brought the two of you together is how you feel for each other.
This should never change at all.
Try your best to make his family want to meet you but don’t forget that your boyfriend matters a lot more than them.
5. If your boyfriend’s family won’t change their minds then you should choose the right action for you to take.
If you have tried everything to make your boyfriend’s family meet you and nothing seems to be working then you should do the right thing according to how you feel about this issue.
Your boyfriend’s family doesn’t want to meet you, how do you feel about it?
Do you think it will change how you feel about your boyfriend? Does it make you feel that you are in the relationship you want to be in?
Does it affect how you connect with your boyfriend in one way or the other?
I know this issue can affect different people in different ways.
So, I can’t just tell you to leave your boyfriend since his family doesn’t want to meet you.
I also can’t ask you to stay with him and keep building the relationship yet that is not the way you feel about the relationship currently.
You have to consider how this issue affects your feelings before you think of doing anything.
If you feel that you will never be happy in that relationship if you won’t meet your boyfriend’s family then I would advise you to let your boyfriend know that the relationship will never work.
Be honest and tell him what you feel and just end the relationship peacefully without any issues.
But if not meeting your boyfriend’s family doesn’t affect you in any way and you can keep your relationship going and you will be happy then I would tell you to hold on to what matters.
Hold on to your relationship and keep building it. As long as your family is okay with you dating him then there is nothing wrong with that.
What I can tell you is that there are couples who decided to run away from their families just to make their relationship work.
So, you can still have the same shot here.
If your boyfriend’s family doesn’t want to meet you because of something that you can change then you should do so.
Eliminate the things that make your boyfriend’s family not want to meet you.
Once you eliminate them or make a change then you will be able to meet them.
But if it’s something that you can’t change then you should not bother trying harder. You may hurt yourself by trying to change things that you can’t.
Talk to your boyfriend and let him know how you feel about what his family has decided.
Let him know what you think and maybe he can come up with a way to solve this problem.
If he won’t manage then the only thing you should think of is making the relationship work even without his family being involved.
Use some of the tips I have shared with you in this article and hopeful things will work in your favor.
While you are trying harder to make his family meet you, understand that your connection with your boyfriend is what brought you together and not his family.
So, don’t concentrate so much on them and forget that your boyfriend matters.
