While we’ve discussed meeting each other’s kids, it’s something we’re holding off on until we’re sure this is a stable, serious relationship. I have friends who waited almost a year, and one who only waited 2 weeks. It depends on the kids’ ages, personalities, and [specific] situations.” —Hannah, 43, Dayton, OH“I have a rule that I have to have been dating the person for a year. For example, if I was dating someone who had kids in the same age group, it would make sense for us and our kids to hang out and it wouldn’t necessarily need to be a ‘’ moment. My kids know me better than anyone, and I actually trust their judgment of people’s character.” —Hannah, 43, Dayton, OH“If they didn't like someone initially, not necessarily. But a person’s parenting style is very revealing, and a couple times I was turned off by what felt like tolerance for abusive behavior from their young (6-10 year-old) sons.But I haven’t felt the need to break that rule yet.” —Annie, 30, Moscow, IDWould you stop dating someone if you kids didn’t like them?

It’s difficult being a single mother and getting everything done in my life and doing it well—let alone finding time to regularly make commitments with another person. I don’t have a ton of financial resources, so I struggle to pay for sitters and the clothes and getting my hair done regularly.” —Ivy, 38, Charleston, SC“If a woman I'm dating comes over, it has to be post-bedtime.“My experience has been that as a single dad, one of the most difficult issues is my lack of flexibility.A lot of women I've dated seem to value spontaneity and that's just not possible for me.
