  • mirrorthere is no right or wrong time for this particular situation but; if i were u i would not bring just a guy i am dating around my baby we would have to be extremely serious about each other. you can start dating whenever it feels right for you but don't fall in love too quickly, get to know them and just enjoy the dating experience, date more than one guy,don't put all of your eggs in 1 basket you will be sorely disappointed.
