Mine officially met my bf after six weeks. I'm not sure it counts though because he was a friend for years and they had met a few times before. The only reason he met her that early was because I knew his character, his group of friends and their character, and all my friends know him and how he is a sweet guy. I wouldn't have done it that way if he was a complete stranger. Probably between 4-6 months if I hadn't known him.
Different situations and ages have made it be different amounts of time for me. My so and I were friends for awhile before we got together, so he already knew my son. We were officially together about 2 months when we told my son that we were dating. He had just turned 6 at the time.
I would never get completely invested in a man though until I knew my son would get along with him. I refused to be one of those women that fell in love with a man and stayed with him even though her kids hated him and/or he wasn't good to them.
I waited til the kids were gone!
One year, they get along great.
I have been dating on and off for a year or so but have never found anyone I would want Ady (my son) to meet. I think hypothetically if he were someone I would want to truly get into a relationship with, I would want them to meet right when it changed from dating to a relationship. Other than how a man treats me, the most important thing is how he treats my son. We are a packaged deal, a two for if you will.
