When do you introduce someone that you are dating to your kids? does it matter if they have kids around the same age? Opinions....

When you both feel the time is right. If your just casually dating I wouldn't do it. But if you are more serious I would introduce them when the time was right.

What ever is right for you. I introduced my SO to my children 3 days after I met him to see how they interacted and get a feel as to how he relates to children. I made a good choice. :) they're madly in love with him and he treats them as his own.

Honestly, I dont fully understand this. My son has always been around my boyfriend and I. He knew him before we were together, as a friend of mine. He lives in another town, so when he comes, he stays for a few days.

I'm not being an ass, I'm just generally curious as to why they wouldn't meet?

 I would say this is not the norm - because you have known the guy long before somehow.  Guessing.

 I agree with this. I believe any man I'm interested in needs to know UP FRONT that I have children but the "whens" and "ifs" of meeting them is totally different.

Maybe its a regional thing? I don't know people who didn't know each other before dating.

 klespeedy0205 yeah I am among you.  Unless I knew them from school, neighborhood, or church, work or from friends/acquaintenances someplace from the past, etc.  I have not met all the world of guys and their names out there yet.  Just a select few.  lol.
