When and how to introduce the kids to your dating partner and their kids depends on several variables. Think of people you might have known or dated in the past.Do you remember what they were like after two weeks versus two months?Try to understand the aspects that upset him, which can help you find ways to make the experience easier on him.If he's worried that dating will cut into your time together, for example, then you might create some special one-on-one time with him.
Kids from divorced families have already experienced a loss and can get attached very quickly, so it is important to think about how the introduction will affect them.
I've seen this pattern before - where adult kids say they don't want to reproduce their messed-up childhoods so they avoid having their own families. They are smart and taking all the precautions to keep from in their view "messing up". The one who dumped her boyfriend is in therapy and the therapist has told her to stay away from her mother for now because she's toxic.
Most of us all know the story of a lovely lady who was bringing up three very lovely girls.
The man I am seeing is still searching for his "role" with his children, and it irks me to no end that there are no rules or boundaries when the girls come to visit.
I can tell that there isn't a lot of structure when they aren't with their dad either.
