Dear Wendy: “I’m Nervous About Meeting My Boyfriend’s Son”

I’ve been dating a super great guy for about three months. We have a fantastic time together and I feel like we have real potential for a future together. I don’t have kids (yet), but he has a son from a previous relationship. I know I will be meeting the kid before too long and I’m nervous as heck about it! I don’t have the foggiest idea what to do with an 8-year-old boy. My boyfriend has talked a lot about his son and I’ve asked questions about him, seen pictures (incredibly cute kid), heard funny stories, and I’ve checked out his room in the boyfriend’s house just to kind of see what he’s about. But somehow I’m still afraid I’ll mess something up when I meet him. Will he like me? How much attention should I give him? How much attention should I expect from my boyfriend while his son is around? My boyfriend is a great dad and he only gets to see his son one night a week and one night every other weekend, so I know he cherishes that time they have together. I guess the big question is: how can I help our first meeting be comfortable and fun for all three of us while not getting too much in the way of dad/son time? — Nervous Nelly
