When I had told some friends that I had been on a date with a guy, several of them asked “What did Rit think of him?” I told them that I would not be introducing Rit to any potential dates until I am serious with the person, typically several months into dating. I don’t want to parade people in and out of his life.
This was a topic discussed among my singles group, as there are several single parents. Trying to figure out the right time to introduce children is hard. I don’t want to introduce Rit to someone who may or may not be long term potential. However, I don’t want to wait too long in case it turns out that the person realizes they don’t want to be with a single mom when they see the mom aspect happen. It’s fine line, a juggling act, trying to find that right amount of time before introducing the most important person in my life to them.
I am not in a place anywhere near that decision currently. I have only been on 3 dates total since my divorce, with 2 different people. However, it does remain in the back of my mind. Right now, I just hope that I will know when the time is right. Until then… enjoying dating and being single!
