Keep your sense of humor. You only meet these people for the first time once.
You love your RVCA Women's Lucy Fera Shirt, so you wear it to a barbecue with your new boyfriend's family. You sweetly play with his nieces and nephews all through dinner and dessert, deftly avoiding every spillage of fruit juice, every smoosh of whipped cream in their hands, and every smear of mud from the backyard sandbox. Thank God you've remained relatively pristine ... and then, out of nowhere, your BF, who's had too much grown-up juice, sloshes his glass across you as he tries to awkwardly give you a peck in front of his parents.
