Meeting the mom may mean something depending on how it is done.
If this meeting is more of a personal meeting than simply showing up for a family function, it tends to mean more.
In the scenario of meeting his mom through a family function or event, you could have simply been his date for the event.
In a scenario like this, he may just want someone to keep him company while he is around his family or use you as some kind of buffer to prevent unwanted questions asked in his direction.
He may also have you meet his mom in this kind of family event setting to prevent certain family members from constantly asking him about when he is going to bring someone special home.
Family members do ask these questions.
This is why this kind of scenario can be tricky.
He may not necessarily be inviting you to meet his mom in this kind of family setting because you mean that much to him.
He may be doing it out of convenience.
It could really go either way in these kind of scenarios when he is inviting you to a group family function or event.
However, if he has you meet his mom in a one on one setting, it is a lot more intimate.
This approach tends to be the most sincere or authentic.
In this kind of scenario, he may be hoping that you two get to meet and start getting to know each other without the distractions of other family members all around.
He may want his mother to be able to be focused on you and not have to worry about constantly being distracted and taking care of other family member needs while she is interacting with you.
In a scenario like this where it is just his mom and you interacting, he is able to let you two find chemistry.
He is also able to place more of the focus on the both of you as opposed to on him.
Hence, this is one of the better scenarios in your situation, if you are hoping that meeting his mom would mean anything.
Meeting his mom also means something when he has taken his time to do it.
In other words, he didn’t just have you meet his mom quite early in your relationship with him.
If he were to have had you meet his mom within a few days or a couple of weeks of knowing you, he may not have put too much importance on that.
He may have simply done it in order to show his mom who he is currently dating.
The relationship never had enough time for true emotions that have withstood the test of time to develop.
However, if you have both been together for a few months and he has now chosen to have you meet his mom, preferably in a more intimate setting where there are far fewer other family members around, he has placed more importance on this meeting.
The relationship has survived the first 3 or so months as he has gotten to know you and he is now ready to take things to the next level.
It’s important that you are yourself when you meet his mom.
He wants his mom to like the girl that he has gotten to know over the course of the last few months and not some fake girl who is putting up a front.
By being yourself at this meeting, you will give yourself the best chance of getting him to commit to you wholeheartedly.
