So, I just wanted to basically get everyone's opinion on this.. I have been dating on and off since me and my kids' dad ended things about a year ago.. and I just recently started dating a new guy and I really want to introduce him to the kids and he wants to meet them but I'm just not sure how to go about it.. or when. Is there a "right time" to introduce them to a new guy? I have been trying to wait it out because me and him are taking things as slowly as possible.
But, when we do decide to go to that point in our relationship does anyone have any advice? Do I just bring him over here to my house and he can meet them? Should we go out somewhere kid friendly and do it that way? I really don't know how to go about it haha. I just want to make sure I do it the right way . He is good with kids, but he's not used to being around kids a lot. And I have 2 of them who are 4 and 3. And ornery lol. So, yeah.. any help on this would be much appreciated <3
I'd have to agree and say you do what is right for you. Just because someone thinks it's appropriate to wait 6 months, doesn't mean you have to, and just because someone does it immediately, doesn't mean it's wrong. It's what your comfortable with. There is no right or wrong answer.
Maybe you could take them somewhere kid friendly for the first meeting. Like a park or Chuck E Cheese, whatever. But getting them out of their environment may help them open up to him better.
