Dating a man with teenagers
If your date wants you to meet her son right away, suggest that she introduce you as a friend.
You may consider bringing the child a small gift to show your good will and sincere interest in him, such as baseball cards for a collector or new crayons for an aspiring artist.
Don’t bring anything extravagant, which he may perceive as an effort to buy his affection.
Once your relationship becomes somewhat serious, try to get to know her son gradually, without attempting to rush or force the relationship or stepping in as a parental figure.
Many children of divorced parents still have a lingering hope that their parents will reunite, and you are a sign that her parent’s relationship really is over.
