Going on my first date! HELP!! :)

Hello Ladies! I need some advice bad! Lol I am going on my first real date since the donor! (I had dated one guy before baby however we we're good friends and I was very comfortable around him) its been about 7 years and I had no children since I've last dated. I now have two little ones including a 5 1/2 month old. So my questions are, what do I do!?!? Lol (he knows about my two LO's) I will obviously need to reference to my children a lot as they are my world and he will need to know that, do I bring them up a lot? Or this first time keep it a lot about me and who I am? Gosh this is all completely new to me. Do I tell him this is my first time dating since the donor and its all new to me or not a good idea?

A little about the guy: my aunt goes to the gym with him. He had mentioned he wanted to get his back waxed for his vacation. ( she told him I was an Esthetician) and he asked "does she happen to be single?! She said yes so he found me on FB and wrote me and now we're going on a date on Friday lol. I don't want to screw this one up! The guy has a very good head on his shoulders. He is a investigator for murder and robbery cases and just took his bar exam to become a lawyer. He loves to dance, travel, eat all I've ever wanted lol

Any advice is appreciated :) thank you

He knows you have kids you can bring them up if its part of the conversation, but it should be about you two having fun and getting to know each other. Enjoy yourself.

First off, relax. Dont dwell on your kids, but make sure he knows they always come first. Just go where the conversation and mood lead you. Dating hasnt really changed these past few years. Just relax and have a good time.

What I do, is just remind myself that it's fun getting to know people. There's no pressure that way. Just think of it as having an adult to hang out with for a bit...not a major moment your life is hinging on. I am more naturally myself when I think of it that way.
