There are many benchmarks during the courtship process: The first date, first kiss, and the first time you lock eyes with your partner and the both of you just knew you had the one. But perhaps one of the most anxiety-provoking things that we have to go through is introducing our partner to our parents.

Even if your horoscope indicates your partner will be calm, cool, and collected, you can't help but get stressed out about them meeting your parents. But when you look to astrology, you can discover which zodiac signs know how to make a good first impression on your parents.

By introducing your partner to your family, you’re telling them that they need to pay attention, because if all goes well, this person will be in your life for a long time. You want your partner to be presentable and not do or say the wrong things.

It’s not that you want your partner to act like someone they’re not, but you want them to be the best version of themselves, and you want them to do it out of respect not just for you and your parents, but respect for themselves as well.

So, let's take a look at the zodiac signs who are the best choices to bring home to mom and impress your dad.

1. CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Your parents won't have to spend a lot of time with your Capricorn partner to know that they have a good head on their shoulders. It's clear that your Capricorn is hardworking, practical, and wants to make sure there's a firm foundation in place before the two of you move forward.

Capricorns may be shy initially, but once they start to relax, their winning personality will shine through. Your family will probably breathe a sigh of relief if you're serious about a Capricorn.

2. CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Cancers can't hide the fact that they love you — and it will be clear to anyone who sees the two of you together. Because Cancers are extremely family-orientated they'll be extra interested in your family history and will beg for more stories about you growing up, which your family will be happy to oblige to.

Cancers demonstrate their behavior on how loving, protective, and caring they are. Any anxiety that your parents may have about your partner will be put to rest once they meet them.

One of the many good qualities that Aries has is that as many things as they're interested in, they also care about what you're interested in, and that they're going to encourage you to step out of your comfort zone and challenge yourself.
