did you wait until you introduced your kids to your SO and/or your SO introduced their kids to you?

My DH and I have been friends forever so I met SS before we started dating. It was actually seeing each other with SS that made us fall in love all over again (we'd had teenage crushes on each other off and on for years).

We actually did it pretty fast, but that's because we had set up play dates for the girls. However, during that time we did not ever show that we were dating. We just looked like two parents meeting up in order for their kids to play. It wasn't until we moved in together, six months later, that our girls knew how serious we were.

❤ Big Thanks to Vicki, trishosaurus, & Shortcake for the great siggies of my kids! ❤

Well our situation was a little unique. Dh met DD on our 2nd date and dated us both together. I had a restraining order out on her bio dad & no family to watch her while I went out. Couldn't exactly tell the teenager down the street "Here's the Order of Protection. If he shows up don't answer the door & call the police"

Dh & I met on another parenting board on were online "friends' before we met so I knew he wasn't a creepy stalker

My kids were older (12 & 15) when I met Neely. They knew I was seeing someone, but I don't think they met him till 2 or 3 months into it.

I met Neely's kids about a year after we started dating. He was in the middle of a custody/visitation battle with his ex, so it took a while for me to see them again. They didn't start coming over to our house till 2006, 2 years after we met.

I met DSS pretty quick. My BF and I worked together and he was the house manager so he would stop in sometimes on his days off, just to check on things (and when I was there to "check out" the new girl LOL) and most of the time, if he was off, he had his son so it wasn't really a formal introduction, but I met DSS before we were even dating but he only knew me as someone that daddy worked with.

The first time that DSS saw me on a more daddy's GF level, was when BM randomly dropped him off early to my BF one day and I still happened to be there from the night before.

I met Kenny online through one of those popular free online dating sites. I hadn't planned on actually finding anyone (I was just doing it for the heck of it, really), so imagine my surprise when we started talking and hit it off about EVERYTHING! Within a week or so, we were talking by phone, and we met a month later. My DS went with me the first time we met, and he's taken to Kenny like a real fatherly authority figure (something he's been very lacking in his short life) after not so very long at all.

We've been together around four months, but it already feels like forever, and our family appears to be blending together seamlessly-- aside from the typical five year old attitude problems.
