Don’t ever bring your kids on a date — even if he agrees to meet you at the park because your schedule is “so busy.” A better choice?
If you and your guy are in a relationship that lasts past the three-month mark and are making the commitment to be exclusive, begin to slowly introduce him to your kids.
You can even introduce him as your friend rather than your boyfriend at first and then let him slowly get to know your kids (and you in the role of mother).
Set him up to win by making it clear that your child (or children) aren’t competing for your time and attention. Have you asked him if he’s ready to meet your kids?
When it comes to dating, we all know what a struggle it is to find that perfect partner. You have all the necessary equipments to take you through the dating stage.
All the check boxes are ticked, except for one – he is a divorcee.
You can’t drive her out completely unless she’s lost all custody rights, and you shouldn’t want to.
If you recently started dating someone new AND you have kids, it can be tough to decide when you should introduce them to the new person in your life.
If you’re Dating with Dignity, you shouldn’t find it too difficult to make that choice. If you’re casually dating someone and don’t see them as a part of your forseeable future, introducing them to your kids is definitely unnecessary.
If the answer is no, you might want to keep dating others until you meet someone with whom you're more compatible.
Does your guy dislike kids in general, or has he taken an aversion to yours?
