    So me and my girl just started going out, and I am bringing her home to meet my parents, but I am pretty sure that she will want to see my room. The problem is that I collect Transformers and display them on a shelf, and for once; I don't feel like hiding it no more (with my past girls I used to take them off the shelf and hide them). I feel like its something she should know, But my question is:
    How can I tell her, or what can I say to her about this???
    ( NOTE: am not a BIG fan,
    I just enjoy the movie designs and though that the figures looked cool,
    I only collect the movie figures,
    NO ONE else knows about it,
    I DONT play with them and I usually admire how some people are able to customize them)

    Thank you

    PS. let me know if I posted this in a wrong thread section, I just dont understand were this belongs.

    As for where this belongs, I believe it's better suited for the Toy dicussion forum

    As for your girlfriend, I say just tell her. Though I should say I've never been in a relationship so I can't say if the outcome will be favorable or not

    First of all, don't be embarrassed about it. It's just a hobby and a perfectly harmless one at that.

    Is your room dominated by Transformers, i.e. is every single spare inch covered in robots or merchandise? It doesn't sound like it, so when you show her your room she'll see you're a balanced individual. Just don't go making a big deal about it or try and hide them, lies only make things worse.

    It depends on the girl, and how accepting they are of it. Its probably something you should have told her by now, girls dont like surprises like that. How many bots do you have?

    20 isn't a lot of robots.
    And 5 days is pretty early.

    I'd say keep it quiet for the moment.

    yeah, its not a big thing but, the thing is that I feel as though we may last for a LONG time.

    P.S. I am pretty sure my collection may increase with Dotm

    Be up front and honest with her if she asks about your collecting. Also, if you intend for this to be a serious long-term relationship, put her first and toys second.

    5 days is pretty soon to be bringing her home to meet the parents. Heck, that's barely long enough to go on two dates.

    As for me personally, I don't usually have the girls I date over to my place that soon so this problem doesn't come up. I've usually told them I collect TFs well before they see my house. It's part of the "get to know each other" conversations on the phone. I've found most don't have a problem with it, as "everyone has a hobby".

    Yeah, I mainly put life before the bots, which is the main reason why I haven't finished Sideswipes swords that I started two months ago :/

    lol thats what I told her, but my Parents just insist on meeting her ( This happens with all my relationships so far) o_O

    Tell her straight up...then there no surprises. If she can't handle a hobby, then she ain't the one.

    Don't be ashame of who you are!

    The way I do it is not to have every single figure out, there is a balance to be found. If you're confident enough with her and she likes you, collecting transformers shouldn't be considered a problem mate. (Unless it gets to the point where you're struggling for space:lol  then it might be time to let go)

    Introduce her to your parents when you are good and ready, it's your relationship not theirs :lol  I suggest taking her out for at least a couple of weeks before taking her to meet the rents (if you'll excuse the British colloquialism)
