  • Go out somewhere and tell your DS that a friend of yours is coming along...maybe like gokarts or puttputt something like that.

  • ok if he's 5 going on 30 then just tell him. Ok well really it would all depend on the situation you are in with his dad, you know what I mean? If he's with his dad on a regular basis he may not take to it so easily but the best thing you can do is talk to him about it and see if he'd like to meet him, make it out like he's just a good friend to start out with. But kids are pretty perceptive and he may be happy just because you are.

  • I think then since he's not part of his life make plans to go out, maybe to chuck-e-cheese or somewhere, so your kid can have fun and on the way let him know that you have a good friend you'd like him to meet and see how that first meeting goes.

  • If you've only known this guy a couple of months, I definitely would hold off on introducing him to my kid(s)! I was single for several years, dated quite a bit, and the only man my kids ever met is now my husband. You definitely don't want to introduce your child to man who may/may not be around in a couple more months. I would wait to introduce him until you KNOW it's a serious relationship and will be long term.
