    How to tell potential dates you're going to be a father???

    So I have lived with my best friend for 3 years. My best friend is a she. In these 3 years we have always been single and not really had any luck with finding anyone. Anyway a few months ago we were having a few drinks making a joke of how we are still single and you can see where this is leading… But one thing led to another and of course the one time she gets pregnant.

    She has decided to keep the baby and is 19w pregnant. We’ve talked and are quite content with the situation and will remain close friends and I will play a part in the babies future. However this leads to the title of this thread… How do I tell girls that I’m going to be a father.

    I’ve actually met someone at work and we’ve been talking quite a bit via email since we met a few weeks ago. We’ve arranged to catch up in the next week… Now work relationships can already be awkward if they don’t work out… Let alone if they don’t even start because of a bombshell.

    How should I bring this up with her?

    Should I…

    – not tell her for a while and see how things play out?

    – tell her before we catch up?

    – tell her at the start of the “date”

    – tell her at the end of the “date”

    – before we (if) kiss? After?

    – pretend I only find out in 6 months time after the baby is born?

    Any tips etc would be great.

    Thanks 🙂
