    Dating and introductions

    I'm a divorced mom of twins who's currently dating. I don't know if anyone else here is at this point although I'd imagine some of you are...

    I'm seeing this really nice guy and I was wondering at what point do I introduct him to my kids. Me to his kids -- our kids to each other. Is there any time frame or is it "go with your gut?"

    Thanks for any advice...

    I am also a single mother. I have one son. He is almost 2 and his biological father hasn't played much of a role in his life at all. I dated a guy for over a year, he and I lived together and my son ended up calling him daddy which was fine at the time, but when he and i didn't work out, it became extremely difficult to explain to my DS. It broke his heart when his "daddy" left and now, I'm terrified to bring any other guys around. I don't want him getting attached to anyone thats not permanent!

    Any advice on how to go about keeping my child safe from pain, but still find love for myself? I'm 21 and because of the pain I caused my son from one failed relationship, I'm ready to give up on love! HELP PLZ!!!
