Resenting a meet-the-parents makeover

Q: My partner of 18 months and I are gearing up to meet her parents the next time they visit. I have always felt supported by her, but now she is overthinking everything and seems to want me to change my hair, my clothes, and is picking apart little things I do and say. I know she’s nervous, but I shouldn’t have to change for her parents. My parents like her the way she is. And if they didn’t, well, who cares?
