So, my girlfriend and I had a falling out and we split for about a month. We started seeing each other casually again. We were together for 3 years and took a month hiatus. She initiated the break-up, but we decided that our communication broke down in the relationship and we would like to work at it again. There are no expectations this time and it's been going well so far. We've spoken a lot more about our feelings and have been communicating very well. The problem is, when we broke up, my girlfriend told her parents all of the "bad" things I had done to her. Out of sheer frustration, I had said some hurtful things to her and vice versa. It was a two-way street. Her parents aren't too fond of me and my parents aren't too fond of her at this point. I told her it would have to be about us at first -- trying to work things out and see how it goes. If it goes well, great -- if not, then we can atleast look back and say we gave it our best shot. I figure it would be best to tell our parents of our decision to give it another go after we've gone out a few more times to see if we still "have it." The question is, has anyone been in this situation before? I know her parents may go batshit and I'll probably have to sit down and discuss the situation with them to make amends. My girlfriend is also nervous as well. How should we progress? I believe it would be good to date casually, with no real expectations at first and see if we're still capable (and to test to see if we've both improved). Then we'd have to sit down and clear things up with her parents (and mine), if they had a problem with it. Any ideas? Or similar stories? Cliffs: gf and I broke up, got back together, said crazy shit the other did to us to our parents, parents don't "approve" at this point, we're working on things and they're going OK, I don't wanna have to talk to her parents until I'm sure it's gonna work -- how should I/we proceed?
