I'm sure this has been asked before, but how long did you and your dh/SO date before you met the kids?

Dh and I had talked for a week, dated for 2, then I met the kids.

I want to say a year. He kept bringing it up and I kept putting it off. I didnt have a child at the time & wasn't interested. I didn't care for kids much.

It was fine.  DS and his youngest played Tball against each other.  He was the hot coach of the other team that I bribed to get DS to home plate.  After that game his oldest had a game and SS stayed behind with another friend to play.  Since I knew that kid's Mom I purposely stayed.  He eventually came back down and then suddenly started showing up to DS's games without trying to be obvious.  He eventually arranged for the kids to have a play date and we started dating after that.  

I still haven't paid up on my bribe...and 7 years later I still won't.  Make sure he stays for it ;)

It was a few months. We wanted to be sure we were serious before going that route.

Dated about a month before I met his son. We lived in different states when we met, so it probably would have taken him longer to introduce us. I know he really wanted us to get along, and I knew he couldn't be serious about anybody that wouldn't make an effort to be friendly to his son (who was an amazingly wonderfull toddler at the time).

DH and I had been seing each other (and I had pretty much moved in with him) for 2 weeks before BM found out about us and brought SD down to meet me. DH did not want me to meet her until later but BM thought I would leave DH if I met her and SD and saw them as a family....

I know he had kids and had met them once before we started dating. After we dated I never spent time with them until about 2 months into our relationship (he had them all the time with them seeing their bm only ever other weekend). We started out small amounts of time and them progressed into more time.

I saw my SS on a regular basis before DH and I started dating. SS lived with DH, so it was always the two of them. Our "dates" involved three people (DH, SS, and me). We only had a few "official dates" without SS. SS was kinda part of the deal, so there was no weird introduction or meeting - and SS was only 4 when I met both of them for the first time.
