Dating tips for single mothers on how to introduce your teenage kids from your previous marriages.
I have been dating a guy for 3 months now, we both have teenage children from previous marriages. We have not yet met each other’s children, we have however spoken to our own children about each other.Any advice on the initial introductions would be helpful. Thank you. ~ Teri
I saw a movie with a similar story like yours, Teri. The woman had a teenage daughter while the man had a teenage son. When finally they decided it was time for them to introduce their children, the woman invited her boyfriend and his son for a dinner at her home. She prepared a great dinner and they dined in her balcony. The boyfriend gave her a heads-up on what his son´s favorite meal is (or foods he hates), so it was a plus.
Make him commit and surrender his heart to you, learn how to be “the woman men adore and never want to leave”.
If cooking isn´t your forte, I think it´s more convenient to just go out for dinner. Or if it´s your boyfriend who´s the good cook, then maybe you all can have the dinner at his place instead.
You and your boyfriend can also brainstorm other activities that your teenage kids will likely enjoy together, that way the meeting isn´t too serious, there´s an element of fun. Or better yet, if it´s in the budget, you can invite your kids for an out-of-town trip, or a travel escapade.
Whatever you will decide to do, I´m sure that the meet-up will be more fun than you actually imagine it.
