Help me!...PLEASE!!!!!

My dad just told me that he has had a girlfriend for a few weeks and wants to introduce us...which I would probably be OK with if it was just her, but she has 3 kids (one of which has the same name as me, which is just totally wrong!)...so how should I react when I meet her?

I've been there - albeit I was much younger at the time and had no choice.

Just suck it up and meet her... and you will react how you react. It's awkward for her too, just remember that

Well, I live with my mum, so at least I won;t have to worry about that...and I don't have a problem with meeting her, but introducing kids is just wrong at this stage (they have only known eachother for a month), especially considering that one of her kids is only 11

think about it this way, isn't it better that she has kids and is obviously close in age to your dad, than if she was some 20 year old slut he started going out with as part of a mid-life crisis?
I think if you have a good relationship with your dad, and you're not upset that he's going out with a woman, than you should just try and be nice, even if you don't like the idea of kids. you don't have to embrace them as your new brothers and sisters, but if you meet her and she's nice, you should give the whole thing a chance... just my 2 cents.

It's too soon to aim for peace. Aim for better conflict management.

My mom has a boyfriend too and he has a son who is just as old as me. Her boyfriend is okay although he is talking way too much about things no one actually gives a flying rats ass about but his son just sucks. When I met him for the first time I simply ignored him. I usually ignore people I can´t stand. Maybe you should do that too!

Just be yourself and remember if she makes your father happy then that should make you happy. I know it can be a bit awkard at first but it will turn out smoothly soon enough.

I THINK IS TOO FOR YOUR DAD TO INTRODUCE HER AND HER KIDS TO YOU. MAYBE YOUR DAD IS SERIOUS ABOUT HER. TALK TO HIM AND ASK HIM QUESTIONS ABOUT HER AND FIND OUT WHAT KIND OF PERSON SHE IS. AND WHY THE RUSH? !!!!!!!

I'm taking this lightly. Then again I still cleary remember the day that my father and girlfreind announced to my brother, sister and I "guys, heather is pregnant" with big smiles. And we all sat stone faced

LOL

Well, I think that your dad must be serious about this woman if he wants to introduce her kids to you. You know that parents are really crazy about their kids, so he's probably thrilled that you guys have the same name and all and will meet each other. At this point, I think you should consider that your parents will probably never get back together, but they still love you and your opinion is very important to both of them. I think you should go into the situation with an open mind. Things always seem to turn out negative if you have a negative attitude. Hey, what's the worst that could happen....you may like them or something???? Give them a chance. They may be good people. Good luck to you.

Dammitt, Venus!!!
