LIVE: MY CHILD HATES all MY DATES  what can I Do HELP ME!!!

When I introduced my son Brad, then age seven, to my new boyfriend, Brad introduced himself by biting him on the arm,” recalls Donna Peters of Seattle. “I was torn between running after Brad, consoling my boyfriend and dying of embarrassment.”

The boyfriend laughed it off, Brad eventually apologized, and Donna’s injured ego recovered. The teeth marks didn’t last, but neither did the relationship. “My boyfriend tried really hard, but he and Brad just never hit it off,” she says. “And I couldn’t see dating someone my son didn’t like.”

Sometimes you’re bitten by the love bug, and sometimes the love bug’s kid bites you. So what can single parents do if their children continue to dislike their dates long after the first meeting? Here’s the expert advice that works:

DON’T LET FOOLS RUSH IN

“Your children shouldn’t know you’re dating until the relationship is serious,” counsels Tina B. Tessina, a psychotherapist and author of The Unofficial Guide to Dating Again. She suggests giving your kids time to get comfortable with the idea that you are seeing someone before making introductions. “If you pressure your children to like your date, or go too fast for them to get comfortable with the situation, you’re asking for a lot of trouble.”
