Ok, my husband and I started dating when his son was 4 months old. He would see his son on the weekends, in the beginning. When you start dating someone with kids, the first thing you have to remember is that they are a package deal! If you like Daddy, but don't like the kid, you better just go. I fell in love with my step-son. Try doing little things with him, ie. a trip to the park, you and him getting ice-cream, something like that and see how things go. Try to remember that he's probably going through some terrible-two's right now, so cut him some slack when the tantrums kick up. You don't have to be a Mommy right now, but it's important to be a friend to his son and let him know you respect him. Let him know that you know the baby came first and that will always be his 1st responsibility. Everything will be ok, once they both realize that!
