Not only did Affleck meet his girlfriend's mom and dad, he invited them on a double dinner date. On Saturday, the foursome were spotted sitting on the patio at Cassia, a restaurant in Santa Monica, Calif, enjoying Southeastern Asian cuisine. "Ben was in a great mood," an eyewitness told People about their "meet the parents" outing. The sourced added: “Lindsay seemed very happy to have her parents here.” BG004/Bauer-Griffin/GC Images In photos published by the Daily Mail, the family date night was seemingly low-key, with Ben dressed in a leather bomber jacket, jeans, and sneakers. Meanwhile, Shookus wore ripped denim and blush sweater with cut-outs at the shoulders. According to the eyewitness, Ben made a great impression on Lindsay's parents. “You could tell Ben gets along great with her parents,” the source says. “They were all chatting and laughing. They shared a family style dinner with several of the restaurant favorites, including chickpea curry and steak frites. Ben picked up the check at the end of the night.” What a gentleman. No word yet on if Lindsay has met Ben's mom, Christine, or father, Timothy. But it appears to us like things are getting quite serious between these lovebirds. Though, a source previously told People that while they "enjoy each other's company," they're "not rushing anything." In any case, this is a major step forward.
