  1. I've been exclusively dating a man (Joe) for a little over one month now and I can see us getting serious. Joe has two children: 11 year old daughter and 9 year old son. Joe separated from his children's mother a little over 9 years ago, however has a cordial relationship with her for the sake of their children. He's extremely active in his children's lives and I absolutely adore him for that. I've never dated a man with children and do not have any of my own. I see movies and T.V shows where the kids hate and torture their dad's new girlfriend and I do not want to be her.

    My question is: when would it be appropriate to meet his children and in what capacity? How can I make this easy for them (children)?

    1. Dating someone with kids is sometimes very difficult. I once dated a guy who had four... yes four boys. They were still young, the oldest being 10 and the youngest 2. I met all his kids very early in our relationship and a few months into it I met their mother. It was the scariest thing for me to have to meet her, but at the same time I put myself in her shoes. I too would want to know who is being around my kids. Unfortunately, our relationship only lasted about 7 months. He was a great father to his kids and I loved him for that. But being that I wasn't in the same place as him it made it difficult to balance our relationship. I understand your fear of his children going all crazy on you and frankly I was too. My advice to you is to just be yourself, children can sense when someone doesn't like them. Don't try too hard to please them right of the gecko because they might take it the wrong way. His kids turned out to be the sweetest thing and towards the end started calling me mom, not because I asked them too but because that's how they felt towards me. It has now been 3 years since I dated that man, and his kids still ask about me and we keep in touch through Facebook. It might be a lil easier for you since his kids are much older and don't require much attention anymore. But I will say that it will be difficult, but just be patient and most importantly be yourself. It's really up to your boyfriend and maybe even the kids mother to decide when you get to meet them depending on what their agreement may be. Just be respectful about it, just remember that if those were your kids, you wouldn't want them to be around all these different women unless if was something serious with a future. I hope this has helped you and good luck!
