I have a situation on which I would love some advice/suggestions. My FI and I both live in Central VA and his parents live in Northern AL. I spent four days last Thanksgiving with his family...they are very kind and I enjoyed my vist. This year, we are spending Thanksgiving with my family. His parents have invited us to spend a few days with them at a resort in TN the week before Thanksgiving. I was so excited that they invited me and I was really looking forward to it. I found out, though, that his younger sister (who I have never met) is bringing one of her friends from college out in CA. Okay, no problem. Then, my FI informed me that his mother is expecting me to stay in the same hotel room with these girls I have never met (for 3 nights). I feel that this will be rather uncomfortable. First of all, I am several years older than they are (I'm 27) and I feel that we already don't have a lot in common. Secondly, they both know each other and I will be the odd man out. Also, I am a little shy when I meet new people and it takes me awhile before I can be myself. Then, sometimes I snore which is really embarrassing. I won't even go to sleep on airplanes because of this. Anyways, I just don't know what to do. I want to go...I would love to get to know his family better before we get married. I don't have enough money to buy my own hotel room for that many nights and there is no way his parents will let us stay in the same room. Sigh...what to do. My FI has trouble putting himself in other people's shoes so he doesn't see a problem with it although I've tried to explain it to him by asking him how he would like to stay in the same room with my younger brother who he barely knows for several nights. That seemed to help him understand a little better. I don't want to sound rude and ungrateful to his parents because it is so kind of them to invite me. What should I do? How would you approach this situation?
