Introducing kids to a boyfriend

The last guy I dated didn't understand why I wouldn't introduce him to my kids. We didn't date for very long, and my policy is not to expose my kids to guys who might not be around in a year - how long is appropriate to wait to introduce a new boyfriend to them?

I'm not sure that the answer is really timeframe based. I think it is more related to where you are in the relationship. Some relationships move into commitment within the first couple of months. I think as soon as you know where the relationship stands you should get your kids involved. No point in continuing to move forward without the whole family on board.
