awkward double date

My ex has a new girlfriend. They've been together about a month. Tomorrow. We're going on a double date with my boyfriend too. We've been together about a year and a half.

 

awkward.

 

I want to meet her before she meets the kids but I find it way too soon to be introducing the kids already hopefully I can help them see it my way.

my kids are 6&4. They don't need people in and out of their lives and they only see dad every other weekend anyway

It doesnt necessarily have to be awkward. If everyone has moved on...there shouldn't be a problem. However, I do think a month in is too soon for her to be meeting your children. I hope they see it your way too.

It wasn't bad. My boyfriend thought I was a little mean to my ex but I didn't think so.

he mentioned in front of her not taking part in datne's first sport.

she's nice. I don't think I'll disapprove of her being around my kids. And she seemed understanding of the fact that I'd like them to wait. If they will I have no idea.

 For you guys to have that level of communication and are able to actually go out and everyone meet.. I take my hat off to you!

I have shared custody and my ex doesn't know the definition of communication.

Quoting Callaly:

it's funny that you say this because we actually have awful communication and we had to go out so that I could tell his new girlfriend they should wait because he couldn't tell her.

I guess I wouldn't call this a "date". I am thinking more like a business dinner kind of thing. Date tends to make me think that people that want to spend time together are going out together.


How was it?
