I met my boyfriend in August we talked, went out and got to know each other but just officially started our relationship in January. I have two children from my ex that I was with for 5 years and was single before meeting my boyfriend for over a year. My bf doesn't have any kids from a previous relationship. I care a lot about my bf. I think he is wonderful and couldn't ask for someone better. He is very sweet to me and makes be feel special to him. He is also doing very well for himself, has a great job and supports himself. This Saturday my bf and I have plans for him to meet my kids. I'm excited but also really nervous. I lately have felt like he is too good for me. I worry that me having kids is too much for him to have to take on in a relationship. I also worry about things like will he be able to handle hearing my kids argue or have a tantrum (basically all the hard stuff that comes with raising kids). I feel like I don't deserve to be with such a good guy and he deserves to find someone special that he can start a family with, not me that already comes with kids attached. I haven't talked to him about my feelings yet because I don't want him to think I'm getting serious too fast.
Sorry this is so long. What I was wondering is if anyone else felt like this when starting a new relationship for the first time after having kids. If so how did you know the guy would be able to handle going from the single life style to a family life style?
