In the past:Dinner, movies etc without kids. Bf had met the kids but didn't really interact with them. I have them full time so I had a sitter or they were old enough to stay home w/out me.
Currently:I met bf through child's sports team so he knows my kids, we were at an away tournament so we had all kids with us at dinner and breakfasts. Went to dinner/lunch/breakfast after games with kids. This past weekend we had our first "date" with no kids. That was a change! We are taking everyone swimming this weekend, he & kids are coming over next weekend for superbowl party.
Normally I would not recommend introducing bf to kids so soon, nor would I. But ours is a unque case that works for us.
I dated when my girls were with their dad every other weekend. A date would be dinner, drinks, maybe a bar, movie, movie at home, etc. I have a boyfriend now and he just comes over whenever now, he met my girls and they like him so its easier now that we can all hang out together
I am wondering the same thing as I am due in March and do not even want to think about dating but when is a good time to get a social life together?
I would get to know them while my mom babysat the kids. After getting to know them I would invite them over for dinner to see how they interacted with the kids.
Quoting ladybugmom2010: I just don't. Most of the guys I meet have some sort of game to play so I just keep to myself.
