  • Three months is not a lot of time, especially when a child is involved. Kids can form attachments to significant others very quickly and to introduce you quickly is not a wise choice.

    I would let him wait until he feels that it is a good time for you to meet his child. If you are engaged and he resists it's one thing, but 3 months is not a long time.

  • damn you changed it

    I think meeting a child is a huge step. I think the only time a child should be introduced is when it's very serious and 3 months isn't serious.

  • Meeting someone's children is a huge step in a relationship, and three months is much too soon, in my opinion.

  • Minimum 6 months dating, when you know this is going to be a long term thing. Even then, I think the contact should be somewhat limited to avoid the child forming an attachment until an engagement.

  • Not until you are considering engagement. You should be super serious before he thinks of introducing you. There is not need to drag the child into a relationship that may or may not go anywhere.
