Are you my new daddy?
Last night my neighbor and I had a very interesting conversation.
It centered on the topic that all men end up talking about.... Women.
We pondered a question that has been on my mind and (apparently his) for a minute now. A question that MICHAEL BAISDEN talked about on his radio show.
How long should a man/woman wait to bring a new man/woman around his/her kids?
A week? 2 months? 6 months?
What is an acceptable time table for a man/woman to introduce his/her kid(s) to his/her new friend?
How long should a man/woman wait before bringing a woman/man to his/her house?
He told me of a chick that he recently had to give the 'we can be friends' speech too.
This woman has a 22 year old daughter, an 18 year old son and another 8 year boy.
The 22 year old does not live with her but the 18 and 8 year old does. She told my man that the 18 year old is very protective of her and that she was not comfortable with him coming to the crib when she knew he would be there.
I can understand that.
My neighbor has a 15 year old son that lives with him.
This woman said she had no problem coming to his house with his son present because according to her, 'she knows how men raise boys'.
I don't understand that.
What the fuck does that mean?
She understands how men raise boys?
So to my limited college educated mind, does this mean that she doesn't want to look like a Ho in front of her son, but it is OK for her to look like a Ho in front of his son?
Or was she implying that since a man is a man, his son has probably seen his father bring home a different woman every night of the week, so he is probably used to it?
Am I digging too deep into this?
Well my neighbor told me he told her that he does not bring any and every woman around his son because he is trying to teach him how to respect and treat women. He told me he told her that he did not like her implication that he was a promiscuous man who had a different (2 or 3) woman rotating out his front door at any given time.
He told me that this is when he decided to give her the 'we can be friends' speech.
He had only been talking to this woman for about 2 weeks when this happened. According to him she did not understand his sudden lack of interest in her.
So what say you, fellow A Blackman View readers?
How long is a good time to wait before bringing a new person of interest around your kids?
