I've come across some articles on this subject. Some say, you should be divorced for a full two years and wait until you've been with your partner for one. Some say you should wait until after six months of dating a person, and some say you should wait until you start discussing marriage. So I thought I'd ask you ladies on Café Mom.
How long did it take for you to meet your SKs? How did they react to you the first time you met them?
I met my SS (3 at the time, now almost six) about two weeks into dating DH. I'd been chatting with DH for a few months and after our first date, we spent every afternoon hanging out (except for days he had SS). I worked in a coffee shop/bookstore (where I met DH) and one morning, he brought SS into the coffee shop. He bought drinks for both of them and I ended up chatting with SS (we never said, ‘this is who I'd dating' or anything). Apparently, SS really liked me and talked about the ‘coffee girl' when they were at home. After a few weeks of dating DH, and DH and SS coming in on the weekends, we took a quick day trip out of town. SS and I hit it off almost immediately!
