Resolved Question:

I am a 41 year old female, divorced a little over a year, with a 7 year old daughter. I have been in a mutually exclusive relationship with an amazing man for 3 months now. He is 40, divorced with no children (not his choice as he wanted children). Our relationship has progressed fairly quickly as we are compatible in so many ways. We are very optimistic about our future together. While we have not spoken of marriage at all, we joke on occasion about buying a house together. He would like to meet my daughter even though we both know the "usual rule" of waiting 6 months or longer. I would like for my "two worlds" to come together sooner rather than later. I understand you can't possibly know what my relationship with this man is like, but just from the above information please advise.

Russ0114 : Hello and thank you for choosing just answer, I look forward to assisting you.
Russ0114 : As much as you're ready for your two worlds to combine, I would suggest sticking to your 6 month rule but start taking the time now to prepare your daughter for this big change that's about to take place in all of your lives. Introducing him gradually will be better received than just introducing him one day. Let her ask you questions and she may surprise you and request to meet him sooner than the 6 months which would be awesome.
